We very much enjoyed this tour. As very frequent travelers to the Big Island (We own a condo in Waikiki), we were looking for something different. We are also design-buffs and love looking at people's home for design ideas. I had seen this tour advertised in the Hawaii magazine so I called them up. It was a progressive breakfast with... More

The tour was great! We enjoyed getting a taste of 'local' life on the island. Lisa, the tour operator, and all the homeowners were well organized and engaging. Especially enjoyed the way Lisa wove the local food into our tastings. She even made a gluten free banana bread just for me! Coffee farm with the 100+ chickens was a highlight!... More

Had a wonderful, informative tour with Lisa and Gabrielle. The food was great and the homes were beautiful. The Coffee Farm was very interesting and all of the homeowners were very friendly.

Visited three local homes with food prepared by Host Lisa at each home. We enjoyed talking with the owners about their homes, Hawaii and the choices they made when moving to the island. The food Lisa prepared was delicious and she was a gracious and fun host. I would do this tour again.

We found this tour on TripAdvisor and sounded interesting. We were so happy when we completed this tour. Lisa the owner and guide has the heart as big as texas and makes you feel so welcome. Her guided tour through 3 homes was fascinating. OH and the homemade food she served us was the best. This is the real way... More

This tour was better then when we did it 5 years ago under a different owner. Food was good, houses different, and Lisa was very bubbly and interesting.
