    A fun walking tour thru the town of Hanalei. Not only were we able to sample wonderful food, but history too! We learned so much about the area, culture, plants, and ate at favorite local spots.

    Food was ok. Narrator was knowledgeable. Expected more unique foods as opposed to chicken , poke and pie.
    icon Response from Host , Apr. 2022
    Aloha Don_M, Sorry to hear you did not enjoy. Especially the locals favorite plate, the "Hawaiian chili pepper chicken". Goal is to curate and serve unique items, like the local fresh caught ahi tuna poke, as most poke sold in Hawaii is caught and shipped from out of state. Along with featuring locally grown macadamia nuts in the pie. In fact out of all my reviews across several platforms, most mentioning their love for these plates, this is my first negative review. Never intended to mislead or set false expectation. This is not a fine dinning experience. If you care to share more on how this could have happened please email me the details. This business is entirely run by myself. Thank you. -Narrator

    This tour was great and delicious and I learned so much about what goes into a REALLY EXCELLENT poke bowl, and even though I didn’t think I liked raw fish, I did LOVE the dish. I have tried it again, since our tour and definitely confirmed that the one that Max introduced us to was superior. We learned about the food and culture of Hawaii and ate in a beautiful setting. Max went above and beyond to meet our needs and introduce us to Hawaiian foods that we had never experienced before. I do recommend showing up EARLY for the tour so that it can start on time and not conflict with the Vendors breaks.

    This Delicious Kauai walking food tour with Max is a MUST DO! Highly recommend it!!

    We had the best time with Max and at each stop we enjoyed the food as it kept getting better and better from the delicious ahi tacos, the scrumptious crispy chicken with the sweet, spicy sauce with just the right kick and then on to the selection of a smoothie or Acai bowl with fresh fruits and toppings - a refreshing treat! Dessert was too good to be true with a choice of homemade style chocolate bon bons. The passion fruit and Lilikoi pbj and rum bon bons were sooo good. Then Max surprised us with the last stop where we had a macnut creamy pie - so yummy! Max was the perfect host and gentleman. My sister has a walker and a difficult time walking, and he made sure to make it easy for her and chose areas to accomodate her and the 3 of us, and he even brought the food to us. He explained everything that was on the menu, and a little history of the local food vendors which was very interesting. Max also talked about the culture and the important sights of Kauai. He checked on us and made sure that we were all okay with the food, and everything. Very personable, friendly and accomodating, and made us all feel like ohana!! We will definitely recommend this food tour with Max for everyone passing through Kauai!!

    Great way to experience the cuisine of this quaint area. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the local culture, history, economy, and food scene. We explored fresh poké and sushi, fish tacos and chips, smoothies and açaí bowls, shave ice, and finished it with local chocolates. Delightful tour!

    Max was awesome, he knew everything and everyone it felt like. What’s special about this tour is the bond he has with each vendor. He knows the food but he also knows their story. This is a food tour you don’t want to miss.

    This experience was incredible! I recommend doing this early in your trip because you’ll want to go back to try more at every restaurant! Max was incredibly knowledgeable of each restaurant/food and the island! Not only do you get a food tour but you get great history of the island from Max. The food was incredible and not small portions at all. Come hungry and leave stuffed! Can’t recommend enough!

    We loved Max, great stories and very considerate. I don't like raw fish, so the food was not up my alley. If I'm being honest too high priced for the tour.
    icon Response from Host , Mar. 2022
    Thanks Leslie! If you do join us again please be aware we ask to be notified in advance for dietary requests so we can make your experience more enjoyable & customized. Being a tropical island, our fresh seafood is typically featured on tour, unless requested otherwise. Wish we could make the tour more affordable. Since currently we only earn via tips, that would mean less food or we pay out our own pockets to have guest join. As most guest love the large serving size & selection this will probably remain a very filling experience. Appreciate your honest review, Aloha!

    We like to do food tours when we travel. This tour was one of the best we’ve done. The guide was obviously friends with the restaurants we went to. The food was delicious. And the narration was very informative. The guide really has a passion for the local foods and the history of his native state.

    The walking tour was fantastic and we introduced to a lot of the amazing food and restaurants that are in the beautiful little town of Hanalei. Our guide not only took us to great places to eat he also told us a lot about the history of Hanalei, Kauai and Polynesia as a whole. We would never have found these great restaurants and shops had we not been on the tour, and we’d been to Hanalei many times before. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to know where to locals for for great food.

    I booked this tour as a 2 parter, 1 to try new foods that the locals eat and 2 to explore while eating. Max did not disappoint! He lined up a poke bowl to die for, Thai chicken wings amazing, Mac nut pie for desert, and chocolate bon bons rum and coffee flavors. The food was delicious, Max presented a lot of information not only on the foods we were eating but also a history of the islands and culture. My wife and I also took notes of stores we passed that we wanted to circle back to check out. Worth checking out, especially early in your trip so you have time to go back to places and eat again.
