Jackson and Ross were the absolute BEST! I enjoyed their combined effort in informing us about the history of the island and the beaches! They gave us restaurants to try and ideas of what to do with the remaining time that we are here! They went over and beyond making sure we had a great time and communicated with other passengers. We all enjoyed the tour.

Had a fun experience with Jackson. First stop was Leonard’s Bakery and had some delicious malasadas. We stopped at several sites along the coastline. Second food stop was a macadamia but store where you can get free coffee samples and different macadamia samples. Then we stopped to look at China Man hat island. Afterwards we went to a garlic shrimp trick, very delicious. Stopped by a fruit stand but most of us were full from the garlic shrimp. We stopped by Matsumoto for shaved ice, however the line was too long. So we mostly shopped at the boutiques. Our last stop was Green World Coffee Farms. I honestly wished there was more food involved, like we could have stopped at Waiahole Poi Factory and could have included Ted’s Bakery. Those two are some pretty awesome local joints. Overall it was a fun tour of the island.

The tour was amazing, but what really made it an unforgettable experience were the guides (Sandy and Mouse). They were so knowledgeable and funny, but more importantly, they were passionate about their love of the island. They gave us the opportunity to get engulfed in delicious food with rich culture, and we got to see a side to the island we didn't know existed! If you want to taste some amazing Hawaiian dishes and have an overall great time, this tour is a must!
