Royal Lahaina Offers Kaanapali Concert Series This Summer Featuring Barry Flanagan and Eric Gilliom

Aloha from Tom Barefoot's Tours,

We are contacting you because one of our agents has probably spoken to you recently about a trip that you are taking to Maui this summer. We wanted to include some additional information that you should be aware of regarding some special musical presentations that will be happening on island.

Our good friend, Barry Flanagan, the "Hoku" award winning Hawaiian performer is having some special showings this summer at the Royal Lahaina Hotel. These are going to be fantastic and we simply wanted to let you know they were happening. Unfortunately we will not be vouchering them so if you have an interest you will have to contact the number on the attachment provided below to make a reservation.

Barry Flanagan and Eric Gilliom are simply so good that we wanted to give you a "heads up". Please make a reservation early if you have an interest in hearing some of the best music available on the islands (or anywhere else for that matter).

For more information about Barry Flanagan and his concert series, please visit: and

Please enjoy and have a great summer,


Tom Barefoot

The Best Luaus on the Hawaiian Islands

Best Luaus on Maui - As you probably know, the only place on the planet you can truly attend a luau is in Hawaii, and arguably, the very best luaus to be found in the state are on Maui, so if your going to do aluau, you should do it right here. The other thing that I should mention at this point is that if your going to decide to book a luau on Maui, you should probably consider doing it right now or as soon as you possibly can, long before you actually arrive on vacation, because some of our very best luaus (not all but some of them) actually are sold out weeks and even months in advance. I know it seems incredible, but it is the absolute truth. Even if the luau is not sold out, the sooner we make a booking for you the better the seating arrangement will be for you and your family when you attend. With regard to shows: years ago the only type of real entertainment we had at night were luaus and dinner cruises. Today we have some world class entertainment which holds it own by anybody’s standards. Please take a look in this section at the Maui Theater’s “Ulalena” which is a special production only to be found on Maui. Warren and Annabelle’s Magic Show is also an incredible favorite and if possible should not be missed. For more information about Maui Luaus - click here.

Best Luaus on Oahu - Luaus are the big attraction
on Oahu. No question about it, luaus on Oahu are the single biggest event
participated in by our island visitors. And why shouldn’t they
be. This is the quintessential Hawaiian party and feast. You won’t
find anything like it anywhere in the world. I always rationalize
that I’ll be going out to eat somewhere that night anyway so
for a little more why not include the show and the entire orchestrated
event into the evening excitement. Oahu luaus are certainly
among the most famous in the state. All provide transportation
to and from and one, the Sea Life Park luau even includes entrance
to the park and exhibits prior to the show and even for a month after
the day of your big Hawaiian feast. Remember that luaus here
are a must and they won’t let you back on the plane to go home
if your passport is not stamped and validated by your luau provider.
Just kidding, but you and your family and friends will love attending
a luau while on your vacation to Oahu. For more information about Oahu Luaus - click here.

Best Luaus on Kauai - No trip to Kauai is really complete without attending a luau. This is the one activity that is so totally Hawaiian that to miss it would be to miss a link to the origins of old Hawaii. The food, the drink, the hula and entertainment, and the general social setting of this Hawaiian party is certain to make this evening a memorable highlight of your Hawaiian experience. For more information about Kauai Luaus - click here.

Best Luaus on the Big Island of Hawaii - Every Hawaiian island has its luaus and if the Big Island is the island you’ve decided to visit, then you should do a luau here. No trip to Hawaii is really complete without one. This is the one activity that is so totally Hawaiian that to miss it would be to miss a link to the origins of old Hawaii. The food, the drink, the hula and entertainment, and the general social setting of this Hawaiian party is certain to make this evening a memorable highlight of your Hawaiian experience.

Customer Testimonials - Part 3

Here are some of the customer testimonials we have received.



My most sincere thanks to you and your organization. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip (last week) to Maui. The three packages we purchased through your representative (Billy) were superb! The snorkel trip was outstanding. The ride to Hana was the most informative and enjoyable time and topping it off with the dinner cruise on Friday ended a vacation the way it should be ended.

Again thank you and I WILL make all my future arrangements for any trips to Hawaii through you.

Roger R. Bales


Tom and the team –

This is not a question, but rather an acknowledgement of your fine service and friendly staff, like Leslie and others.

For the past 7 years, we have been using your service for over 20 activities. We have never been disappointed in service or in value. We always refer you to people we see and will continue to do so.

Keep up the great customer service - it really pays off. We just got back from Maui yesterday, so we will see you all again in 2008.

Thanks for everything.

Pat Abbott



I just got off the phone with Lori and am amazed at the customer service I just received. Never have I been treated so warmly or talked to a more knowledgeable person in my life. The advice and hospitality she has shown me makes me laugh at all the times I asked people what to do in Hawaii. If I ever receive that question, I will have one response and that is to call Lori. She truly cares about her job and the people she helps. I thank my lucky stars I stumbled across your website and was able to work with her. I have no doubt the next email I send to you will be how dead on she was about what I need to see as a first-time visitor to your island.

Thank you for employing people like her who help to make my honeymoon a great experience!

Matt Van Egeren



Thank you. Your website is wonderful. I think it is the easiest one I have ever used. I will get with my mother and we will make our choices and book.

Thanks again.
