Ryan was great. We walked to the initial meeting spot from our hotel on Waikiki Beach about 45 mins. All the restaurants were within comfortable walking distance. The food was excellent, and Ryan was a great guide. A tour like this is a very worthwhile use of an afternoon while in a different country/city to get away from the tourist eateries and experience the food locals eat. Can't recommend enough.
Excellent tour with Ryan as guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. Went to about six different restaurants and had a meal course at each. I am not an adventurous eater but I had things I would never eat at home and it was all delicious. Items included oxtail soup, taro coated pancakes, raw fish, garlic chicken, and eggs with hamburger to name a few. We ate at out-of-the-way places where the locals go. Easy walking tour over several blocks. Spent about three hours. Highly recommend.
If you want to eat like a local - I would recommend this tour. Our guide, Ryan, was very informative and provided us with some of the history of the food that we were eating. I tried everything and liked most things. I would recommend this tour for those foodies who are open minded and adventurous in their food tastes. A great way to visit some eating establishments that most tourists would not go to or know about.
The Eat Like a Local Hawaii Food Tour lived up to its name, as all of the places he took us were places no tourists ever would have wandered into on their own. In fact most were little local dives and food courts with delicious Asian-inspired food. However all of them were places I’d come back to in a heartbeat. This is the real side of Hawaii that few people get to experience. Far, far away from the touristy luaus and sunset dinner cruises. This is the real Hawaii.
