More Tour Details

Lanai Tabura is a one-of-a-kind guy and loves showing visitors a good time on Oahu in a local-style way. Explore the history and culture of the islands at Hawaii Plantation Village and learn why this state is considered the melting pot of the Pacific. You’ll also stop at a local poke shop and sample a variety of fresh Hawaiian seafood plus some of Lanai’s favorites. Keep an open mind and let your taste buds do the talking! This is your chance to try new things and keep a fresh outlook on life. You’ll never know unless you try!

Because this tour varies based on the group and Lanai’s ideas for the day, no two tours are alike. You can, however, be guaranteed good, local, real food and flavors of Hawaii! None of that sugary-sweet comfort food that the other tour companies call "real" - this is an authentic experience introducing guests to the local style of "grinding" (Hawaiian pidgin word for eating). Your mantra for this tour will quickly become, “Ho Lanai, I like grind!”

Another popular stop off during this tour is the famous food trucks of Oahu. Here you’ll get a feel for the plate lunch lifestyle and sample incredible flavors. From mac salad and sticky rice to chicken katsu and lau lau, your hunger for a unique adventure will be satisfied. The Aloha Plate Food Tour with Lanai will surely be a big highlight of your Hawaii vacation!

Lanai usually has a surprise up his sleeve for every tour, so get ready for a spontaneous, fun and exciting adventure with one of Hawaii’s most loved local boys. Foodies and non-foodies (and your taste buds) will love this tour!

Entrepreneur, owner and operator of a full service travel agency, comedian, morning radio host, actor and frequent traveler, Lanai has a handful of hobbies and interests that make him one-of-a-kind. Lanai owns one of the largest music libraries of Hawaii music and also has a successful wine label (“Look Me in the Eye”) sold in Whole Foods, Ruth’s Chris, Tamuras, Foodland, Wine Stop, and many more.
