Amazing food experience - Susan was fantastic and the food tour was amazing. The history she shared was also very interesting. She also provided a lot of great ideas for other places to visit while on our trip.

Great walking food tour experience - The walking food tour in Kapaa was a great experience. We love our tour guide Susan. She was caring, attentive and flexible. We tasted some of the best island food. She provided good insights to Kauai's history and also shared other places we can visit while staying on the island. Because of her recommendation, we were fortunate to see sea turtles resting in Poipu Beach.

Food, History and fun in Lihue! - This was a really fun tour. Everyone was enthusiastic and had a good time. We were not familiar with Lihue. We were able to try new places and learn some interesting history about the island. Susan our guide was fun and was able to share stories of the islands. We enjoyed it so much we signed up for another tour with Susan. This time in Hanapepe.

Great Tour - Met our host Susan at the Java Kai for our first tasting. Here we enjoyed kalua pork sandwich and it was yummy! Walked around the corner for a Kombucha tasting which were all wonderful and nothing like the bottled ones from home. Off Tiki Tacos with a choice of steak, organic chicken, fish or vegetable - huge taco that just awesome. Went down the street for a taste of a Kenji Burger made famous by Guy Fieri - again a treat. Ended our trip at Wailua Shave Ice which was NOT what I had ever experienced. Loved it. Susan shared quite a bit of local history and stories with us as well as the history behind our food stops. It was a TON of food but thoroughly enjoyed it, Susan and the others I. Our tour group! Would definitely try another one in a different area!

Mixed Rating for Food Tour - I have a few separate ratings for this tour. First three food stops: 5 Star Last stop (ice cream): 2 Star Guide: 4 Star Value for price: 3 Star Koloa Tour (south side) - The actual food we tasted was very good and different from things we had tried in the past (except the sushi - it was just sushi). The stop at Kickshaws and the pork grilled cheese were great! The fourth stop (basic, generic ice cream store) was less than impressive. Nothing special there, nothing original, just a scoop of ice cream you could get anywhere. It really felt like ‘well we have to get at least one more stop - let’s just get this because it is outside of the previous stop’. It would be MUCH better to skip the ice cream and try one more Koloa restaurant. The overall amount of food was maybe $40, so a tour price of $125 per person was steep for 1.5 hours and three hot food tastes.

Not for me, mediocre - Not really for me. We stopped at 3 places and most were pretty basic food for anywhere tropical. There wasn’t much in the way of a tour, most of the history was something you could find just reading Wikipedia. If you come with people who can’t walk much it is the tour for you. I didn’t really care much for the guide, topics got very political and not as informed on the history of the islands.

Last minute cancellation - No options - This tour was booked back in September then I reconfirmed the tour in March only to have it canceled 2 days before with no other option, private or otherwise. They gave me an excuse of a corporate tour and it shouldn't have been on the website which means the staff are not informed, poor training or groups $$ are more important, not customer service. Unable to book another tour such short notice. Really disappointing. Wasting time and money trying to find something instead of enjoying my time in Hawaii. Never recommend

Not recommended - I would not recommend this. I booked months in advance. I received a reminder of the event. No one showed up… it was a hassle to get it cancelled.. my elderly parents and teenagers were advised to be hungry..it was a total disappointment. They can’t be trusted. There is just no way that they didn’t know they wouldn’t be there. I was fortunate to receive a full refund… but nothing compensates our time, frustration and inconvenience… which was completely preventable
