Maui Chocolate Tour and Waterfall Hike
Recently we had the chance to experience the unique Chocolate Tour & Waterfall Hike from one of the newest tour operators on Maui’s north shore, Kings Gardens Maui.
Situated on a large, wild and tropical estate just off the famous Hana Highway, the chocolate tour includes chocolate tastings along your hike, as well as a walking tour through the area’s rainforest grounds and viewing of the memorable and very secret Kings Waterfall and his real ancient Hawaiian sacred gardens.
Our tour guide was highly entertaining and knowledgeable, and made the experience truly unique with their sense of humor as well as factual insight into the area’s ancient farming practices, cultural significance and highlights of the local flora and fauna found along the trail. Their guides are the highlight of their tours. Honestly, I’d pay to just sit and laugh with their guides for a few hours.
So much fun, and so much incredible information about our island’s history and culture.
Even better, the chocolate tastings were delicious and unpretentious, and an excellent way to learn more about this delicious superfood while simultaneously experiencing the natural beauty of Maui’s rugged jungle landscape. We especially enjoyed as our guide showed us how to make yummy sweet chocolate treats on the spot with only 3 natural Maui ingredients (organic raw sugarcane, organic raw cacao (chocolate) powder, organic virgin coconut oil) baked in the sun, then cooled. We Say It’s A Must Do While On Maui!
This is a tour for those looking for a real Hawaiian experience. This is special. Choose from 3 tour options, offered daily.
Everything was delicious! The salmon was a touch overdone, but that’s my only complaint. The “bacon” and eggs stole the show though.
The building, both above and below ground, is awesome! Roof top dining is about as good as it gets. I was hoping for some really great food, and I got it.
The Waikapū Valley was a little cloudy, but blue skies hung overhead. I love when the clouds weave through the mountains. Truly a unique view.
