Never heard from them. They were supposed to pick me up at Hotel. The Covid19 lockdown went in effect while I was traveling to Honolulu. I want my money back. I never heard from them.

Aloha Friends, Matthew Gray here, owner of the world famous Hawaii Food Tours. It's now April 2021 and I wanted to respond to this review: This person DID NOT book a tour with us. A Third-Party re-seller of our tours is responsible for whatever happened to this person. Our last tour was conducted on March 15, 2020 and we've been closed due to Covid since then. We were never contacted by this person or the invisible re-seller regarding this issue. ** IMPORTANT NOTE TO TRAVELERS: Always contact tour companies DIRECTLY to book your tours. Do not buy any tours through re-sellers, especially now during Covid. Note to "lynned801" who left this ridiculous review. There is no word spelled "Debotchery" - I believe the word you were looking for is spelled debauchery. That said, it does beg the question of whether you even know the meaning to the word you meant to communicate. For the rest of you, Hawaii Food Tours hopes to return soon! E-mail us if you are interested in joining the delicious fun.

Giovanni Mazzarella was our CCA (Certified Culinary Aficionado) and he was AWESOME! He had a great attitude from the moment he picked us up to the moment he dropped us off! He had a smile the entire day; he had an answer for every question; he had a napkin for every bite; he was on top of EVERYTHING throughout the entire day! We would highly recommend this food tour as we learned a ton, ate the best food and had a blast making great memories in Honolulu!!!! 10 out of 10! We would 100% go back! He shared us the entire trip within hours of completing it and even shared a few awesome recipes to try at home!!!!!! He provided his best restaurant list for us to try with various categories depending on your mood!

Our tour guide, Gio, is warm, entertaining, and ingenious. He has outfitted a cart and shoulder bag to provide everything a patron could need while travelling around Honolulu exploring the food scene. We started with a breakfast treat like no other. During our time together, we had a good balance of drives in the van and walking stops. Along the way, many people greeted Gio as if he were family. Personally, my favorite was the spiced pineapple (we bought some of the spice to bring home). My wife loved the candied banana. Well...we both loved the coco puff at the end. So many new food experiences!!

I have traveled to the Hawaiian Islands several times (please see my previous reviews) and this cultural/food tour was definitely, unquestionable a highlight of my trips to Hawaii. Our expert guide/Chef Gio was worth the whole price you pay for admission. This man was so crafty and personable and his energy... has given him the nick-name "mayor" of Honolulu's exotic Chinatown by it's merchants, which he expertly navigates you though like no other could. We tasted delicacies from several stops and Gio made rolling preparations on his custom cart.. he had everything on board we needed! Our guide also gave us local culture info as well as vital "food for thought". Chinatown for a few hours is a must if you visit Honolulu, and you need this tour to navigate it. Highly recommended by Joe B!!

Aloha! Thanks for your in-depth review of our Famous Hole-in-the-Wall Tour! Gio is quite amazing as a tour guide, isn't he? The inside-Chinatown experience is genuine and real, and showcases a part of Honolulu not usually showcased in brochures. It's real, colorful, delicious and multi-cultural. We hope to see you again soon!
