This was the food tour real food people want. Save the shave ice and shrimp truck tour for the pedestrians. This tour is for serious eaters looking for something different and new. Visit and support many local businesses that are still producing the food the help build Hawaii. Victor is amazing tour leader with a connection to the businesses that will make your taste buds smile. He works hard to make the tour memorable for everyone. Take this tour and you'll be in the know.

Victor is a terrific guide! We went to food stalls and markets in Chinatown, where we ate very fresh, local Hawaiian, Chinese and Phillipino dishes. Unlike other culinary tours that focus on restaurant meals, this tour brought us to local markets and food stalls that we would never have found on our own. The "samples" are actually small meals--more than we could eat-so we brought plenty back to our hotel with us. We'll always remember this great experience!

Our tour ended up being a private tour due to cancellations, but Victor and Jenny made it lively and fun. When we travel we love to see more local areas and try new things as opposed to doing the touristy bus tours. This was a great alternative! Victor gave us a bit of history of the Chinatown area and took us to many open market stalls and other places around town. We had so much food that we had leftovers for dinner too! Great people and great food made for a wonderful morning! We would highly recommend this tour!

Victor our guide is really great. We sampled many local foods. Very chill, relaxed tour. He is very easy to talk to. Asked him a lot of questions about food and random things like best beaches and he was happy to answer them.
