Overview
Go beyond Hawaii’s tourist dishes to discover its true flavors and foods on this small-group tour of Honolulu. Traveling by luxe minivan, visit markets, eateries, and food hotspots—including those in Chinatown—and gain insight and tips from your guides you’d never hear if alone. Taste tropical fruits and baked specialities; sample “ahi poke” raw tuna salad, and leave with the full, inside take on the state's authentic cuisine.
