Learn about Hawaii's endemic Hawaiian plant species on the grounds of two botanical gardens. Your professional naturalist guide will
describe the unique tropical plants such as cacao, pepper, cinnamon, allspice trees and variety of palms and succulents. See the
famous orchid collections Hawaii widely exports, as well as a "Bo Tree," grown from a cutting of the original tree
planted in India 800 years ago by the first Dali Lama.
You will gaze at the amazing collection of rainforest and tropical plants and relax by hidden waterfalls on this professionally
guided and narrated tour. Start the day at the famous Foster's Botanical Garden where you will learn about Hawaii's endemic, native
species in addition to the many foreign plants that Dr. William Hillebrand introduced in Hawaii in the mid-1800's. Later visit
endangered dry-land plants inside a crater site. Gasp at African plants, cacti and many other palms and succulents suitable to
flourish in this desert-like landscape. An excellent place to take a memorable photo!
A short walk takes us into a misty natural rainforest including a waterfall. At the falls you will view ancient Hawaiian
petroglyphs near the bank of the stream, learn about the rainforest plants in the park, and look for the vibrant yellow
Oahu Amakihi, a rare and endangered Hawaiian honeycreeper bird species.
The tour requires little walking, is accessible for all skill levels and is a great way to experience Oahu's world famous
botanical gardens, historical sites and scenic waterfalls all in one day. To make your trip a special, one-of-a-kind
experience, we provide our guests with a variety of beverages and a sit-down lunch at one of the locations. We also
offer an exclusive private tour for small groups.
