Don’t take this tour...unless you love beautiful homes, great food and drink, hospitable people and stunning views. This is our second visit to the big island and our second culinary home tour. It’s a great way to experience Hawaii.
Lisa is a charming chef and guide, dedicated to your feeding, comfort and island education for a comfortable 4 hour tour. We visited different homes each time we did the tour and every one was fascinating in a different way. We loved it!

If you are looking for a truly local experience, this tour is a great option.
The tour guides are outstanding. As well as the host in each of the three visited homes. The houses were beautiful and the food served in every stop was delicious. Great menu, very tasty and good portions. Relaxed tour that allows you to interact with the locals, see their lifestyles, and taste the flavors of Hawaii. 100% recommend.

On our recent cruise to Hawaii, I booked your shore excursion of Culinary Home Tours and am so glad I did. Your tour was the highlight of the entire cruise! I loved getting into the "back roads" and mingling with the "locals", hearing snippets of history, family, and lore--AND enjoying so many different foods indigenous to the islands. Your preparation and presentation of the foods was very well-done. The hosts were so gracious and hospitable in sharing their homes to us travelers. Even though the tour was on a time schedule, you, as tour guides, kept a comfortable pace in which I didn't feel rushed--there was time to enjoy the whole experience at each stop.
Your tour guides were also very gracious, patient, friendly, and efficient--you set a wonderful tone to the whole experience.
Huge kudos to you!!!!
