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.

Carl and Dana took us on the Hole in the Wall tour. We spent most of our time in China town. It was very interesting to taste the local cuisine and to see how it is made. Plus the markets were fun to look around.

Carl, Dana, and Joy were our guides and they did an excellent job ! I loved learning and listening to what they had to say. I love the tidbits of information and stories you would only be able to hear from someone in their position. The food was delicious. We did the Hole in the Wall Tour and really enjoyed... More

Daniel and Krystal were our food junky guides and they were both brilliant. We started with manapoua (sp?) and ended with malasada's...with other sweet and savoury delights in between. I would...

A fun relaxed day out with great hosts sampling all sorts of treats across Oahu. I joined the "Hole in the Wall" tour hosted by Joy, Robin & Carl. The food was delicious and the team had plenty of fun facts to share. I really liked having the opportunity to sample traditional Hawaiian dishes (poi, laulau and lomi lomi salmon)... More

We had high hopes for the day and definitely weren't disappointed. The friendly and knowledgeable staff assist with all things Hawaii/food/drink. On our tour we got to see the entire island and try local cuisine most people miss. The food was delicious and filling. The staff went out of their way to not only make the day enjoyable but your...
