Oh My Goodness! Priced at $99/person, this tour would have been outrageously overpriced if it was $50/person. Do not spend your money on this tour. You get a serving of pork on poi, banana bread, dried fruit, a small slice of pizza, 1/4 of a...More

This was a very good adventure of the South Side of Kauai. More than enough food, very filling and very tasty. Ending at the Farmers Market was a nice bonus. A list of the businesses visited and their website would have been nice. Who can...More

I love going on food tours when I travel, and this one provided everything you look for in a tour: great food that you probably wouldn't find on your own and a real sense that your money is staying in the community. We took the...More

Super fun! We got to meet all of the chefs and learn about how the food is prepared and the local ingredients that they use. I live Kaua'i and I had no idea all the local gems around me. The food and experience was amazing.
