“Worth Every Penny”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

This tour was one of our top two activities on Maui, and we cannot say enough about how enjoyable of an experience this was. Gigi knows more about Maui and the city of Lahaina than most guide books, and she made sure that everyone on the tour had a true cultural experience through amazing food and her personal knowledge. Everything we had was delicious, and we got to eat in the best seats in the house for every restaurant we attended! Such a great way to kick off our honeymoon, we would recommend it to anyone who loves food! If you are on the fence about the price, I assure you, this tour is worth the money, and you will see for yourself - better than any dinner cruise, hands down!

“A great evening of fabulous food and fun with Gigi!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Our family of 4, including 2 young adults, had a fabulous evening with Gigi! Each of our stops offered delicious cuisine. Gigi was well-versed in all aspects of each restaurant and specific interesting history of Lahaina and Maui. She has definitely done her homework in providing her guests a well-rounded evening of food, drinks, history, and fun! This tour with Gigi is a must-do any time we return to Maui!! We wish you great success with your business Gigi!!

“Awesome tour guide”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Gigi is a extremely knowledgeable person! She knows lots about Hawaiian history, foods and fish, but that's not all! Her insight spans into many fields. The food she presented us with was very delicious! She was able to describe the flavors accurately and give some back story about the dish and restaurant. I would defiantly book again!

“Good Eats with Interesting Info as the side”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Doing the tour early on our stay on Maui allowed us to return to some of the best restaurants in Lahaina! Gigi is so enthusiastic and knows so much about the history of the island that it made the walking tour exciting. She is extremely knowledgeable about all the foods and fish of the Islands. It certainly was the highlight of our time on Maui.

“A Truly Amazing Tour and Exceptional Hostess/Tour Guide!!! An Awesome Experience!!! :-)”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We vacationed in Hawaii (Maui & Kauai) for our honeymoon and booked the "Hawaii Tasting Tours: Lahaina Lights Tour" just before we left. Wow, were we in for a treat! We had no idea this would absolutely be one of the highlights of our time in Maui, but it was!!! :-)

We had such a great time with Gigi, the Hostess/Tour Guide. Not only were all the locations we visited fun and exceptional, and the food delicious, but Gigi was so accommodating and professional. She really made us feel so comfortable and she had so much good information to share. We had so much fun and learned a lot from her at each location and walking on Front Street. Plus, she actually takes pictures of you and sends them to you afterwards along with a list of the places you visited and notes from the tour! It was like we met a long-time local friend in Maui and she took us on a food tasting/Maui history tour! True class!

She also did a great job prepping the tour as each of the locations was aware it was our honeymoon and congratulated us (some even had additional treats for us)! The whole group had a birds-eye view of the sunset at one of the restaurants visited- a really special experience. The people at all the locations knew Gigi and greeted her like she was their friend- so you know you are in good hands!

I've been on countless tours all over the world and I cannot recommend this company and Gigi enough!!! If I could rate this higher than 5 stars I absolutely would. This is a must do tour when you are in Maui! A truly exceptional and unforgettable experience. Highly, highly recommended!!!
