Description: Hawaii Food Tours™ was created by Hawaii's #1 Food Writer and Restaurant...
Hawaii Food Tours™ was created by Hawaii's #1 Food Writer and Restaurant Reviewer, Chef Matthew Gray. It's for those who love food & fun. Voted Best Tours on Oahu for the past two years in a row! Two different daily tours; one takes place in & around Honolulu... the other goes to the North Shore. We will feed, educate and entertain you all day long! MSNBC Network called us one of the best food experiences in the world! These fantastic tours feature Yummy Food, Fascinating History, and Culinary Decadence! Our Famous Hole-in-the-Wall Tour™ includes a behind-the-scenes walking and tasting tour in Honolulu's amazingly colorful Chinatown! It's an entertaining, informative and FUN Honolulu City Tour with several stops, including 2 of Hawaii's most famous Bakeries & one of a kind Marketplaces. You'll be eating between 15 & 20 different foods! This tour takes place all over Honolulu, away from the touristy areas of Waikiki, where only the real locals go to eat. Our North Shore Food Tour™ gives guests a tasty glimpse of the colorful and rural "countryside" area of our island of Oahu. Many people read about the North Shore, about the beautiful huge waves, the garlic shrimp trucks, and rustic away-from-the-city areas, and that's what we give our guests, including some genuine Hawaiian food, a garlic shrimp plate, various pastries, Hawaiian Beer, and a visit to a coffee and sugar plantation.

The Hole in the Wall tour takes you on a culinary journey. Unfortunately we did the last day so could not use the info for choices later on - I would suggest doing it in the first day or so. The hosts are very passionate. The only thing I would suggest is spending less time in Chinatown - it is... More

The Hole in the Wall tour was great, it gave us a good look at Chinatown and some other restaurants were pointed out along the way. Bill & Krystal were fantastic hosts. The tasting was great and we got an email with recipes and names of all the places we tried food from. Well recommended. Should have done it on... More

We went on the Hole in the Wall Food Tour on Saturday (04/11/15). Our hosts were Robin and Ari. Not only did the Tour feed our bellies with delicious Hawaiian favorites, it also fed our brains with history and education about the culture and cuisine. We loved exploring the Chinatown markets and watching the Rice Noodles being made. We especially... More

We went on the "Hole in the Wall" tour today and it was awesome. The tour is easy to book online and they provide good communication about what to expect. There is pick up and drop off service at your hotel. Our guides were Bill and Krystal. They tag teamed the tour and this made it seamless. This is the... More

Robin and Kealoha picked us up the morning of our tour with the warmest of welcomes and off we went for a day that exceeded my expectations! As we journeyed over the North Shore we stopped along the way to enjoy Malasadas from a small bakery as we looked out over a beautiful bay! I was very impressed that they... More

I recently visited Hawaii with my teenage son and we had signed up on the tour. Even though we got our days mixed up and then had to hurry to get on the tour, the tour group waited for us for a half an hour to join them. The tour was the Hole-in-the-Wall tour. I would say that it was... More

I chose the North Shore Food Tour as opposed to the more popular Hole-in-the-Wall Food Tour simply because I didn't have a car and I wanted to get a glimpse of the North Shore area. And I must say it was the highlight of my 7 day Hawaii trip. It was a full 8 hour tour from 9AM - 5PM,... More

I went on this tour(Hole in the wall) early march by myself, our guides for the day were Robin and Ari, and the whole tour was fantastic, seriously one of the best tours I've done in years (and I work in tourism!). Ari and Robin were both extremely knowledgeable, friendly, funny and chatty, not once did i find myself thinking... More

We both loved the opportunity to try delicious, Honolulu signature treats. From baked manapua to coco puffs to ma tai su, it was incredible. What made it all better were our guides Krystal & Bill. We really made two new friends that we hope to see again in the future.
