The Famous Hole-in-the-Wall Tour

Taste the foods of Hawaii on this 3-4 hour culinary tour of the Oahu. Sample tropical fruits and Asian-style dishes, visit local bakeries, and explore China Town with two knowledgeable guides. Try manapua - a delicious, savory, filled bun - learn how to choose the best Ahi poke, and peruse the fresh fruit markets in China Town. This tour goes beyond the tourist spots and introduces visitors to authentic Hawaii food experiences.

What to Expect
Guests staying in Waikiki will be picked-up at, or very close to their hotel between 9 & 9:30am.  Some guests staying out of the main tourist area will drive to the Ala Moana Shopping Center for a 9:30am pickup (Company will contact you with instructions/directions on how to get to that central pickup location, so we will need guest phone numbers and cell/mobile phone numbers, along with email addresses.

We drive a beautiful black Luxury Mercedes tour van, air-conditioned and very comfortable.

You'll be tasting a wide array of what we refer to as "The Foods Of Hawaii."  Comfort foods, Tropical Fruit, Asian-Style Treats, Luscious Bakery goods, and so much more in a variety of locations.

We offer lightweight fold-up stools, umbrellas, cold bottled water, and more to enhance your comfort.  All this, plus an intimate glimpse into the fascinating Culture, History and Flavors which contribute to our wonderful blend of flavors and people of Hawaii.

Hawaii Food Tour was the second food tour company in the United States, and the Original Food Tour Company here in Hawaii, begun 15 years ago by World-Famous Chef Matthew Gray.

Each tour supplies two exceptional tour guides (one male and one female) to clearly and safely guide you throughout the day.

We've been ranked as The #1 Tour for the better part of our 15 years in Business!  MSNBC Network named us as one of the best food experiences in the world!

Drop-offs should return guests to their hotels between 1:30 & 2PM.
