Kurt was our private guide for the day and did a great job with both the food and the photo part of the tour. There were so many beautiful spots that we went to on this tour - the online description doesn't do this justice. Kurt provided us with some helpful, quick tips about taking better photos with our cellphone cameras. The food provided on this tour is delicious and plentiful - again, the online description doesn't really tell you how much value there is in this tour. We couldn't finish it all and came back to the hotel with lots of leftovers. Kurt was very kind to my partner who was not feeling well the day of our trip. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Frankly one of the best experiences we've ever had traveling. This is a must for anyone coming to the island.

Perfect way to eat your way around the island! all the stops were great and Kapono was an excellent guide.

Our guide was really knowledgeable the trip was fun would definitely recommend it again

Keith was full of information and his presentation was great. Not rehearsed.
