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.

This was a highlight of our trip and a great way to start our Oahu stay. Keira and Greg were fun, authentic and knowledgable, showing us foods and parts of Honolulu that we would never have found on our own. Knowing we were staying in the North Shore, Greg gave a list of recommendations near our location that made our stay that much better! Thank you!

Robin and Keira were very friendly and knowledgeable. They took us to views that we loved and we brought the food along in 1 case. It felt like a picnic. Be careful-we couldn't eat anything the rest of the day. We were thrilled with the authentic Hawaiian meal, something we probably would not have found or had a chance to experience. I would love to come back for the rest.

We did our tour towards the end of our trip to Honolulu but picked up tips for places on the Big Island. Our tour was by Greg and Kiera and they did a great job of explaining a little history of the island with some history of the food, as well. Took us to and pointed out places that the average tourist might never experience but definitely worth your time. I loved it and will venture back to some of those places. Really want to sign up for the North Shore tour when I come back to the Oahu, glad to hear that is a new offering. DEFINITELY worth a try for a really different way to pass your day in this beautiful land.

The Hole in the Wall food tour is a great way to experience some of the tastes of Hawaii and you'll get tips for places to eat that will make the rest of your holiday more enjoyable. The tour guides were very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a wonderful way to visit some food establishments that would otherwise be hard to know about and find, and the tastings were delicious.

We did the hole in the wall tour and enjoyed it so much we decided to do the north shore tour too! Can't really pick a favorite. Both had excellent, friendly, and informative guides and excellent food! In addition to the great tours, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Upon completion of the tours, you are provided with a comprehensive list of the places visited and foods sampled, as well as a list of recommended restaurants on each of the islands, plus a recipe. And, we were advised we could call the owner at any time to ask for advice on where to eat anywhere on the islands. We did eat at a couple of the recommended restaurants on the list, as well as a few of the places recommended by our guides and we were not disappointed! Excellent experience.
