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.

We had a blast today tasting various foods found in Hawaii. Robin and Aria were great tour guides - very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We tasted a lot of foods that I would not have tried on my own. Lots of variety, fun exploring Chinatown and great advice on many places to eat. Highly recommend!

We were picked up at our hotel. There were 12 of us on this tour, IIRC. The tour was originated by a local Hawaiian who wanted tourists to have the experience of eating what the locals eat. Don't expect to sit down at a five star, expensive restaurant. You'll visit places in various parts of town, including China Town for... More

Robin and Ari you guys were AMAZING. We had a great time trying all the different foods and hearing about all the information you had to share about Hawaii. Taking this tour at the beginning of our trip was the best way to start off our visit to Hawaii. You have added new fruits to our regular grocery shopping list... More

What a fantastic day. Our guides were Robin and Aria and they were both so good at their job. It was so much more than just food. We learnt a lot about Waikiki and Hawaii as well as trying so many great things, many of which I would never have ordered myself. I am so glad we did this on... More

In our opinion, Robin and Kealoha treated us to one of the best tours we have experienced. Robin's background and passion in the food industry and Kealoha's insight into Hawaiian culture and folklore excellently compliments the scenic ride and great authentic food. The follow up email summarising the places visited and suggestions for places to explore is really useful, which... More

Really nice tour through downtown Honolulu. You can ask them everything and you will know for the rest of your stay, where you can go eating. I had an amazing tour with Bill and Ari. Thank you!

What a great day with Robin and Ari... loved all the out of the way places to eat... gave you a different feel of Hawaiian culture. I think one of the favorites of our party was the donuts at Leonard's, will definitely have to make another trip there when we come back in November... thanks for all the information that... More

One of the highlights of our visit to Waikiki was our "hole-in-the-wall" tour with Robin and Krystal. Visiting some of their personal favorite places, we not only sampled some wonderful local delicacies but all so learned so much. Definitely worth every penny. We had a blast.

The tour with Robin and Ari was fantastic and certainly a highlight of our trip. Robin provided a lot of interesting history but also information on the modern day Hawaii, not just culinary, and as first-time Hawaii visitors we really appreciated Robin and Ari's restaurant recommendations. My wife and I are foodies and if you are too then this is... More
