I've been to Hawaii twice, and visited all the islands, and this was absolutely my favourite activity. We were picked up from our hotel, and taken on a wonderful journey through different local food spots. Lanai was an incredible host, and clearly a knowledgeable guide and chef. Every single place he took us was amazing - I still dream of the food. He was warm and friendly, and gave us a great overview of not only the food, but the history of Hawaii. I would jump at the chance to try any of his other food tours overseas. Genuinely a travel highlight. You can't come to Oahu and not try this tour! Worth every penny!

Lanai was a great host! We learned a lot about the history and development of Hawaiian food and had great traditional and modern food in local joints. Definitely not Waikiki tourist food! I definitely recommend it!

Wow! We were expecting the "normal" food tour - what we got was a Private tour with Lanai Tabura! Yup, just my husband, myself and Lanai. Such fun! Not only was the tour full of yummy local food and places we would have never found (even with all my research - I base my vacations around where I'll be eating), he helped me find places to eat over the rest of my vacation, and even responded quickly to a sudden opportunity we had the next day! How cool is that? He has great prospective and we were made to feel like friends visiting him personally instead of a tour guide. We were beyond stuffed by the end of the tour. I would say this is a must if you are on Oahu - we came from the North Shore just for this tour and it was soooo worth it!

On the day of our tour, we got a text and email that our tour was cancelled because they "recently ceased operations". I don't understand how that can be when we got a confirmation the day before AND an email to review the tour afterwards. If you're going to cancel, at least call. A text and email is not enough. We didn't check our phones and went to the meeting place and waited. When the meeting time passed and we didn't see anyone, then we checked our phones. Sure, you can say that we should have checked before going, but why would we think that it was cancelled when we got the confirmation the day before? It's been a week since the cancellation and we have not received the refund. I've been told it takes 7-10 business days, which is double other places I've been to. Don't book with them, especially if it's true that they've ceased operations. If they haven't ceased operations, then they just lied to us, which is just as bad customer service.

Food was delicious and of an interesting variety. Guide was friendly but did not offer any historical information related to ethnic food we were trying.
