You'll learn more about the Wilcox family than about running of a sugar plantation, but the family was big movers and shakers on Kauai (in area of public health, for ex.) so it's like a little history of Kauai tour. All the areas visited were like a time capsule. My tour guide did well, and you could tell she was interested in her subject. The stop for cookies and mint tea in the kitchen was a nice touch. And the gift shop was excellent. I did this tour and went to the Kauai Museum on a day when it was kinda rainy and not a beach day, and found them to be good activities for that kind of day.
Sandy, our volunteer docent was great, knowledgeable and very pleasant! Tour gave us a great insight as to how people lived back then, their history and homes. We also had mint tea and cookies in the kitchen with an explanation of how everything worked, as far as growing, cooking and serving their food. Highly recommend, home and grounds were stunning, was infinitely more interesting and worthwhile than my description, lol
