Local Tastes of Maui offers a delicious, fun and educational walking tour of the town of Lahaina, the most popular and most historic town on Maui.

This tour, led by a long-time Lahaina resident such as Kent Stewart, takes a small group on a 2-hour stroll through town.  You will learn about the history of Lahaina, once the capital of Hawaii and once the whaling capital of the Pacific.

 
 

You will see old photos of the area, and will stop frequently for taste samples of numerous foods at Lahaina restaurants.  You’ll discover stores and historical buildings on the main street, as well as on side streets you might miss on your own.

Typical food samples on the tour include pancakes and pog at Pioneer Inn, cookies at Banyan Treats, coffee at Sir Wilifreds, croissants and cookies and gelato on the seaside deck at Ono Gelato, fudge at Hawaii Fudge Company, banana bread and brownies at Cafe Cafe, Greek wrap sandwich at Mr Sub Deli, shave ice at Ululani’s, fresh pineapple at Take Home Maui, and garlic toast and caprese salad at Penne Pasta.

You will see and learn about the Pioneer Inn (Maui’s oldest hotel), the banyan tree, courthouse, library that was formerly the custom house, Baldwin Home Museum, the 1919 fire, the seawall, the history of whaling, the sugar cane industry, the Old Poi Factory and its current shops, what is a mixed plate, plantation era houses, and the Lahaina Historic District.

At the end of the tour, you will receive a card good for discounts at many of the restaurants you have visited during the tour.
