Owner description: 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.

“Best Tour in Hawaii”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I was in Honolulu for a dental conference and went on this tour a week ago. It was so much FUN. Matthew and Rachael were so knowledgeable and funny. They made sure everyone was comfortable and having a great time. I have been on a lot of tours over the years and I have to say this one was my Favorite!!! When we rented a car on our last day, we went to 3 of the places we toured for more of their yummy food!!! If you like food and want to learn about the food in Hawaii, I would highly recommend this tour. They even send you an E-Mail with the recipes. Thank you for a great time!!!!

“Great intro to honolulu.”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This food tour was an excellent introduction to the Honolulu food scene. The eateries we visited had charm, were busy and different. The commentary and insights into Honolulu food and culture were informative and insightful. Chinatown is a place we may have missed without taking this tour. The guides live, eat and breathe food and Hawaiian culture.

“Great tour, well worth the money.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great tour, was a bit expensive but well worth it. It wasn't excessive amounts of food just little bits of everything and all delicious. The guides were very helpful and full of recommendations of where to eat. Definitely do it at the start of your trip. A good way to spend the day seeing the sights of china town and eating!
