Our tour with Gigi was the highlight of our trip. We came to Maui to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and everywhere Gigi took us people were congratulating us and the LaHaina Fish Co. even presented us with a card that the hostess read out loud. Gigi is amazing! She makes you feel right at home and anticipates your every... More

Short walk from restaurant to restaurant, eating a sampler plate at each place, learning about the food, the location, the history, the chef and enjoying wonderful views and best in house seating ... all a huge treat! We chose the evening tour (apparently there are lunch tours also available). No need to bring a camera -- the guide takes great... More

We went on the dinner tour last night with Gigi, and all four in our party had a wonderful time! Gigi is delightful, engaging and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. We all left stuffed and look forward to returning to the places we visited on our tour for lunch or dinner. My husband and I have been on several food... More

This is the best food and beverage tour we've ever been on! Gigi is amazing and imparts so much rich history and fun facts of not only Maui but all the islands as well. Her personality is delightful and she attends to every small detail- things you'd not even think of, like toothpicks- lol. Each lady gets a hair flower... More

My husband and I spent a fabulous evening discussing life, Hawaiian culture and food with Gigi. I highly recommend a food tour early in the trip. We learned so many insights about the island that we were able visit during the rest our stay. We did the Lahaina tour and the food and views couldn't be more fantastic. We were... More

Our experience was beautiful in every way. We had the best time learning and tasting through Lahaina with our guide Gigi. She made it personalized but at the same time helped us expand our horizons. Each location was prime seating with selections of items I previously may not have had the courage to order. Not much could beat, prime seating... More

Ended a very busy day taking Gigi's Lahaina Lights Dinner tasting tour. The food was amazing-- the best I had during my stay -- and there was so much! I also appreciated the accommodation made for my preference for nonalcoholic beverages. I was served an array of beautiful and tasty nonalcoholic beverage pairings -- and really felt each one complemented... More

Gigi was just such a gem, and what a great way to try different restaurants - a try before you buy or book! Local history, local language, local food a perfect evening.

OMG...this tasting tour is awesome and I totally agree with Mike Forney's review to "book early in your stay"! Why? Because he was on the tour the night we were at the same restaurant- Fleetwood's on Front Street. We actually arrived early that evening of the 29th of November to celebrate our 25th anniversary where we met the famous Gigi... More

Owner Gigi is a delightful young entrepreneur with great enthusiasm and a love for Hawaii. Be prepared for lots of food as most places she visits serve fish and beef entrees along with an adult beverage. This is as good if not better than similar tasting tours we've reviewed in the Bahamas and Puerto Vallarta. We were fortunate to have... More
