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.

The only way to see a bit of true Hawaiian culture and taste the culture at the same time. The tour was wonderful compared to other food tours I have done throughout the U.S. Not only do you get to see Chinatown and a bit of downtown, but they work so hard to make the experience one you will cherish...

What a way to see Honolulu. Let your pallet do the talking. Matthew and Kiera were GREAT hosts and really know how to show you the sights and food in Honolulu. I consider this a must do tour. We will definitely do this again next year and take more people with us. There is no better way to see Chinatown... More

We had a great time exploring and eating interesting foods with Greg and Sahara. They are informative, nice and funny - really great hosts! We recommend taking the tour at the start of your trip as it will orient you to the area and you can go back later for "seconds" of your favorites. Also Greg and Sahara really know... More

The guides were knowledgeable and personable, the van was comfortable and the food was super tasty. This tour should be on the top of the to do list for any tourist (or local) who has any... More

We really enjoyed our trip with Greg and Sahara and visited places we would never have found on our brief time in Oahu. The visits to the bakery were wonderful, but the best part is being able to get into places where you say "What the heck is that???" and then find you get to eat it. We had foods... More

Do not miss doing this tour. if you want great food, wonderful insight, a genuine cultural experience. I say go go go - even if you are not a foodie, you will be one after this and you will know more about Honolulu than any one else. Great people, great experience. This is the one thing to be sure and... More
