Loved the route, food stops and set up. The bike equipment was nice and they thought of all the details. Love the new microphone system on the little bike speakers. All the food places were amazing, great local hidden gems. YUM. Kelly was a nice guy, he knew a good bit about the plant and fish life around the area but one improvement I would suggest is to study more food history, share more culinary info of how things are made, where the heritage comes from, and the history of each stop. As a foodie who has gone on a lot of food tours around the world I really missed having more detailed food information. After the tour I went home and researched some of the spots and they have really interesting stories. That being said, we were happy, full and had fun. So overall it was a good experience but real food-nerds like myself will be wanting a bit more info. Also The first coffee place we saw was more a small biz, wanted to try there-- Honolulu coffee though local seems like a pretty big impersonal destination compared to the other places we went. Mahalo to The Hawaii Bike Tours company for their great idea!
This was a wonderful bike ride giving us the opportunity to see the city and visit wonderful small businesses. I really liked the Coffee Shop, riding by the river and seeing the unique canoe's built by the native people. Our tour guide was incredible and knowledgeable about local history and food sources. Best of all we did not have to guess where to eat as a result of this tour. Worth every penny (and it wasn't expensive...a must do...and do it early in your trip.
The bike tour and food experience was amazing and great from start to finish. Kelly is outstanding, great personality and a wealth of information. We had my nephew and his girlfriend with us, their first trip to Oahu, and they loved ever minute of it. We have visited Oahu about 15 times, and learned new information and great places to eat. Highly recommend this trip.
POOR QUALITY FOOD, everything was served on a paper plate or napkin, the food didn't get the wow factor. I have done many food tours and this was the worst by a long way. The cycle tour around the non commercial areas of Waikiki was good to see, a good look at whee the locals school and play.
The tour takes you on areas right in Waikiki that as a tourist you might not see and you get to learn about and taste local food restaurants.
We have been to Honolulu many times and learned local history that we did not know from our tour guide, who was informative and knowledgeable. The food stops were great local places. My only recommendation would be that you are a little familiar with riding a bike and especially in traffic which some of the tour is in, but our guide was very good at watching out for us.
