“Fun and Informative”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Great time with Marilyn as our tour guide. We visited the lavender farm and enjoyed tea and scones; later stopped for a picnic lunch after visiting the winery, where Marilyn serenaded us with her Ukelele. We also met up with her husband, Rick, and his tour group. He and Marilyn were both very knowledgeable about the various things we were seeing. This is not a cheap tour, by any means, but fun, informative and you don't have to drive!

“Thanks Marilyn for a fantastic day on Maui!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

What a great day we had with Marilyn of Maui Country Farm Tours on our deluxe (and tailored) upcountry farm tour. From sampling locally made chocolates to pineapple wine and goats cheese, as well as lavendar scones and tea, we had a fabulous (and filling) foodie's day out. The Kula Marketplace was also excellent, stocking a broad range of locally made products and treats. We traversed gorgeous countryside with spectacular views of the island and were regaled with stories, history and facts. Marilyn was an enthusiastic and delightful host who is very proud of Hawaii and her island home on Maui. I look forward to my return!!

“Wonderful custom tour”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We booked a custom upcountry farm tour with Marilyn. We spent the day touring a coffee plantation, lavender farm, and country farm. It was wonderful. Marilyn was so friendly and knowledgeable, we felt right at home. We are interested in the farm to table movement and this tour lived up to our expectations. What a fantastic host! We will definitely be back. The best part was the take home cookbook written by Marilyn. Now we can enjoy a little bit of Maui back home in NJ.

“great tour”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We booked this tour because they would accommodate a wheelchair. We were pleasantly surprised to find that because there were 7 of us we had Rick as our private guide. Marilyn had another van with the other tourists. Rick was wonderful and very informative as he has lived on island forever. We met up with Marilyn's group at lavender farm. Marilyn is quite knowledgeable on plants and flowers and took tour of plants on farm. Had a great lunch and entertainment. I would highly recommend this tour for someone looking for smaller group. Thanks Rick and Marilyn for a great day in Maui.

Wilma, it was wonderful to have you and your family on our tour of Up Country Maui. We were honored to take care of your husband (an Air Force Vietnam veteran). Thank you so much for your kind review. Please call us if you ever return. We'll take good care of you.

“It was like spending a day with a friend”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Marilyn is wonderful! She truly loves Hawaii and her job. She is very friendly, knowledgeable, and treated my husband and myself as if we were long-time friends. Everything was perfect! She did an excellent job communicating with us before and after the tour. She goes out of her way to make sure you are having a great time. I never felt like I was on a "tour"; it felt like I was out with an old friend. I felt very comfortable with her and when we go back to Hawaii, Marilyn will be one of the first people I contact to set up another tour.

On the coffee tour, we had a chance to visit and tour the Maui Grown Coffee Company store as well as the Kaanapali Coffee Estates fields. We also visited the Piliani Kope Coffee Farm where we met an wonderful woman by the name of Susie. Susie and Marilyn took us on a tour of the farm where we got a chance to see how they maintain their organic farm (we also sampled a few things!). We sampled two wonderful coffees along with breakfast cakes (cakes provided by Marilyn). In addition to the breakfast cakes, Marilyn also provided a picnic lunch in a beautiful park (sorry I can't remember the name), as well as entertained us with her wonderful singing accompanied on her ukelele.

Please don't hesitate to book a tour with Marilyn! She is awesome!
