Having been to Kauai before, we decided to try something a bit different by going on this food tour. We did the East Side tour with Susan and we had such a wonderful day. Being able to visit each establishment and speak with the proprietors was a unique experience. Not to mention that the food was excellent. Will be seriously considering one of the other tours for our next visit to Kauai!

"Great food tasting tour of South Kauai"

We loved this tour, all the restaurants, cafes and stops on the tour. Shane was an excellent guide and interesting person to talk to. All of the stops had either the owner or head chef talk to us and tell us how they started and what they use in the kitchen. By the time we were finished we were completely stuffed, definitely do not need dinner after the tour. You will enjoy.
