We offer two tours – Wailuku and Upcountry Maui
Maui’s county seat is home to our Island’s most eclectic group of ethnic/local eateries. We sample foods from almost every one of Maui’s diverse ethnic communities – sweet and savory, comforting and homemade. We begin with morning snacks and an orientation walk at our meeting place, hit three or four unique places (including lunch) and finish our morning together with Hawai’i’s signature “dessert.”
This tour will meet at 9:45 a.m. and lasts three to three-and-a-half hours. The Wailuku tour will meet at Heritage Gardens Kepaniwai Park
$375 for two; $495 for three; $600 for four
The Wailuku Tour is available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The cool, verdant, gorgeous slopes of Mt. Haleakalā. This is where much of the Island’s best produce is cultivated and cattle is raised. We begin with morning snacks and an orientation walk at our meeting place and then head “up the hill.” We explore the hidden culinary treasures in the residential community of Pukalani, the paniolo (cowboy) town of Makawao, the rural district of Kula. The drive itself is delicious! And if the weather’s perfect – which it usually is – there’s no more beautiful place for a picnic than Upcountry Maui.
This tour meets at 9:00 a.m. and lasts five to five-and-a-half hours. The Upcountry tour meets at Heritage Gardens Kepaniwai Park
$490 for two; $675 for three; $800 for four
The Upcountry Tour is available on Tuesday and Thursday.
Every tour includes: transportation from central meeting place, bottled water, an Island-design insulated bag filled with local goodies for you to take home (one per single or couple), snacks all along the way – both sweet and savory – lunch, the Islands most beloved “dessert,” a list of recommended restaurants, access to your guide for additional information during your stay on Maui. Tours are for a minimum of two and maximum of four guests.
Tours for one may be arranged.
Tours meet in the main parking lot at Heritage Gardens Kepaniwai Park about one mile before the entrance to ‘Iao Valley State Park in Central Maui.
