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.

My wife and I are big fans of local food tours wherever we travel. We have done food tours from Vancouver, British Columbia to Los Angeles, CA and this North Shore Tour ranks as one of the best. Carl and Anastacia (our guides) obviously love what they are doing and their enthusiasm is contagious! Next time our visit will include... More

Do not eat breakfast prior to going on this tour! We had so much food all through the tour. All the stops were very good and they gave many recommendations on different restaurants to try while driving around the city. This was a great start to our trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone at the start of... More

Can't decide between touring and eating? The North Shore Tour totally solves this dilemma! Carl and Anastacia were our wonderful tour guides. They were knowledgeable and very friendly. The bus was also air conditioned and very comfortable. This tour is a two in one tour in my opinion. We got to see the North Shore and take great pics, plus... More

What a great experience this was! The tour guides were local and not only were the stops well thought out but the route was scenic and interesting. They managed to convey a sense of what it was like growing up on the island with interesting trivia as well. Their were only eight participants so it was very comfortable and never... More

The tour guide and his assistant were lovely, knowledgeable and friendly - but; please be aware that the walking tour is actually sitting on a small, very small, unstable stool in a courtyard entrance to a parking garage in China town while eating food that is brought to you while you sit in the heat. This tour is not appropriate... More

Wow what a day, I was sooo stuffed at the end of this day. Joy and Carl were our guides that day and they took us to the cool places locals go to which you would probley never stop at unless you knew. The stories and trivia fun between each stop made it even funner. Between the two of them... More

Did a tour with Dana an Daniel. Very knowledgable tour guides who gave good local information about food and buying gifts. Visited downtown Chinatown and a couple of other places. Really loved each of the bakeries! Can not say a negative thing about it! Would definitely recommend to all of my friends!!
