  • Spur of the moment on a whim, this tour absolutely exceeded our expectations! Would have gone just for the plant education and the multiple fruit tasting. The grounds and their plant collection are...

  • Jason was a wonderful guide. Funny and had much to tell the group. Very helpful to be able and drive visitors down or up the hill. So much chocolate. Yummy. Thank you for sharing Lygate Chocolate...

  • Lydgate Farms offer an amazing tour. Our host was a one of the farmers and had an advanced degree in botany. We learned so much about the island, agriculture and cacao. Not to mention chocolate...

  • My husband and I enjoyed the chocolate tour during our honeymoon in Kauai. It was one of our favorite tours of the trip!! Our tour guide, Henry, was extremely informative and made the experience fun and entertaining. It was also a great value - we tried many local fruits and a TON of chocolate. Our favorites were the dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts and the cacao nibs. Loved trying a cacao seed for the first time. This will truly change how you think about chocolate - I liked learning about chocolate production and understanding how to be a better consumer (buying from companies who support their farmers - chocolates with the direct trade label). Highly recommend!! Once they get a factory, I hope they will sell on the mainland. I'm a huge dark chocolate fan, and the quality is outstanding 😋
  • Amazing tour. If you love wine tasting, chocolate and fruit you'll love this experience. We walked through the farm, they do have rides if walking is rough for you. As we walked the guide identified different plants, matching any tour of a botanical garden. We then sampled local fruit and chocolates from around the world. They explained the chocolate making process and differences between chocolates. Definitely one of my favorite experiences on the island.
  • Really cool tour and tasting experience! It's a 3+ hour tour and tasting which we didn't realize at first, but you get your money's worth in all the different chocolate and fruits you get to taste along the way. Our guide Jake was super knowledgeable about the farm, Kauai, and the whole chocolate making process. Thankfully it was a nice day. Definitely try to go on a cool dry day if you can.
  • This was just the most incredible tour. It was a revelation how chocolate is made from cocoa and what the fruit looks like. Our tour guide Jackson was so knowledgeable and really fun. Could tell he absolutely loved his job. Our most favorite part other than the beautiful farm itself was tasting the fruit of cocoa! We already love extra dark chocolate, this tour brought a new found appreciation for the best of the best in chocolate!!! 100++++ points to our guide Jackson!!! P.S. the popsicle of the cocoa fruit is a must have!
  • Excellent chocolates! We had a very good time on the tour, learnt a bunch about chocolates -- the history, progression through the years and the processing methods. The chocolate tasting was great! We also liked the fruits that were on the tasting list as part of the tour.
