    We did this tour off of Pride of America with Andre and it was excellent! -6 Stars. Andre is an informative and kind guide that went out of his way to be sure everyone on the tour was comfortable and enjoying the themselves. We went o a really nice variety of stops and ate some terrific local spots food. We often do food tours and this was definitely one of the best. Highly recommended.

  3. KD Malik

    We took this excursion while on Pride of America cruise ship. Andre took us to places the locals visit and we had the best malasadas at Home Maid Bakery and the best ahi poke at TJ’s warehouse. Andre is a great tour guide: knowledgable, unpretentious and kind. Highly recommend this tour!

    This was the best excursion we took while on the Pride of America cruise ship. Andre took us to places the locals visit and we had the best malasadas at Home Maid and the best ahi poke at TJ’s warehouse (who knew?). Andre was down-to-earth, kind and knowledgable. We loved this tour!

  5. Laurie Noel

    The authentic food tour was good. The food was ok but our driver and tour guide, Sndre, was amazing! Very patient and kind and knew a tremendous amount about the islands.

  6. Gary Kerchner

    Andre was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable & entertaining. This was the best tour so far!

  7. Art & Linda

    We had a fantastic day with Andre. He took us to places that the ordinary tourist would never see. The food was great. The quality and quantity was over whelming. Money well spent. Don’t eat breakfast before taking this tour. Andre’s knowledge of the history of the area and the backstories to each meal was outstanding.

  8. Dorothy Appleby

    This tour rocks. Come hungry! Quinn was super knowledgeable about everything Hawaiian. He truly loves this island and it shows in everything he does. I loved that every stop was as though we were with family as we ate. The van was super comfortable and Quinn always made sure we had enough water and AC. This is a must do tour.

  9. Casey Starrenburg

    We were very pleased that we took the Tastes of Maui tour with Andre. It was entertaining and a great way to sample the local cuisine away from the usual fast food eateries.

  10. Dawn Sequeira

    Andre was our tour guide for Taste of Maui. There were 13 guests and with it being Easter Sunday, Andre had to work around 2 businesses being closed, which he did without a flaw. Very knowledgeable and fun. We really got a a taste of Maui! Don’t leave Maui without having Andre as your tour guide, he really works his tail off to make sure you have a good time.

  12. Brittany Hawn

    Very nice. So much great food at many different places. Got to go to a lot of smaller mom and pop type food places. Tour guide was very informative.

  13. Island Inspection Services Info

    We were so happy to find Stardust Hawaii! We booked an ATV tour when our family was visiting us here, and it was so smooth and easy – Andrea really made us feel comfortable and accommodated the changes we needed. We will definitely be referring our friends and family to Stardust Hawaii!

  14. Sharon S

    We had a great time on this tour. Our guide, Darrin was excellent and very entertaining. Nice, new van that was very clean. We enjoyed the variety of food and most of it was ample portions to sample. Some of the places we went were out of the way, but oftentimes, that is where the best food is!

    Authentic Experience With Great Food!
    My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon in Maui. It was our second time there. While researching some fun things to do, we discovered the Authentic Taste of Maui. Let me just say that it was the best experience we had there. We went to places we would never find on our own, tasted food we didn’t even know existed, our guide was highly knowledgeable and fun and the atmosphere was perfect. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves to eat and experience something extraordinary!

    A true Maui experience!
    Delicious! A must while visiting Maui! This was the highlight of my trip!! We went to 7 different places with a variety of small portions. I really enjoyed the variety of foods and although a couple weren’t my thing, the majority was delicious! The history and cultural experience along with the tastes were simply delightful. Well worth the money. I tried so many foods I would never have tried (or found) on my own. Our guide was super cool, too. He gave us many interesting facts about the dishes and Maui as well. I can only recommend this tour!!!

    Awesome tour
    Me and my family visited our relatives in Maui and was looking for something fun for our group. This tour focused on the history of the area/restaurants, a sampling of some of the famous hawaiian dishes from each restaurant, and a nice drive through historical parts of Maui like Wailuku near the Iao Valley. Every restaurant had a variety of delicious foods to sample and some of the foods we’ve never tasted before. It was not only fun but also educational and entertaining. The tour ended in a local brewery with a sample of a locally brewed beer. I would definitely recommend this tour!

    Our guide/driver for the tour, Darrin, was a local, born and raised on the island, who knew where the best non-tourist trap places are to get samples of the local food. He was punctual, high energy, friendly, told interesting stories. A couple of the stops were not even restaurants, but markets off the beaten path. We were served full meals to share for breakfast and lunch, and the subsequent stops we received tasting samples of lots of different foods. We have been to Maui three times now, and some of these foods we’d never encountered before. It is a great way to learn about island culture. And yes, bring an appetite – don’t eat breakfast before you go. The only thing that I didn’t appreciate was being told by the person who called to confirm us said if we weren’t at our pick-up location by the designated time we would be left behind. This made me very anxious, as it’s a lot of money and sometimes things happen that can’t be helped. And it turned out, causing us to worry about being a few minutes late was not necessary. Our guide was certainly accommodating and flexible; called us that morning to see how we were doing on arriving at the pick up location, and scheduled his pick-up of the other guests accordingly.

    Big Expectations But Disappointing
    We had high hopes for this food tour of Maui. The best part was our host and driver, Darren. The food choices were all good but two of the stops we were eating in a parking lot in an industrial zone. Would have liked to have gotten a little history tour of Kahului. Last stop was Maui brewery and all we were allowed was a sampler sized glass of only two beer options. Seemed like a little nickel and dime.

  20. Marcel D’Carlo

    Yes, yes, yes, we love it, thank you Darin, it was amazing.
