Jake Barefoot, Vice President
I was born in Lahaina, Maui in 1984. My Dad had already been running Tom Barefoot’s Tours for years and some of my earliest memories took place in our various shops in Lahaina. Since as long as I can remember my Dad and I have been going on tours and spending time together working on the business. I remember when I was young I would frequently beg my Dad to take me to work with him instead of leaving me with a babysitter. Most of the time it would work if I told him that I would be quiet and do something (more info)

Tom Barefoot, President/Founder
Since the age of twenty-four the only job I have ever known as been with Tom Barefoot's Tours. It's been a great experience and I have enjoyed stewarding the company through its various incarnations since its inception in 1975. I've been fortunate to have an interesting occupation and to be able to work with a "wild west" concoction of other Hawaii business owners over the course of years further adding to the interest of the job.

Lori, Sales Consultant/Social...
I'm Lori and I've called the foothills of Iao Valley in Maui my home for over a decade.
After growing up in New York City and living in Washington DC for over 20 years as a sucessful florist, Hawaii was only the place to order vibrant tropical flowers until my hopena (fate) led me to this serene gentle place. The way of life is so much more simple here, and I am humbled everyday by the vast spectacular beauty that is Hawai'i.
I'm a certified State Tour Guide, more (more info)
Andreas, Sales Consultant
I am the foreigner on the team - originally from West-Berlin/West-Germany (when it was the West at that time). I traveled extensively to many countries throughout the world before moving to California in 1986 and then to Maui in 2001. It still feels like I am on a permanent vacation - warm tropical breezes, palm trees, perfect beaches, hula and Hawaiian music create a very romantic and magical time every day. Providing clients with honest and reliable assistance for their Hawaiian (more info)

Chris, Sales Consultant
I was born in the beautiful rural town of Mendocino, California growing up amongst the redwoods and spending a lot of time outdoors exploring all that California had to offer. Jake Barefoot and I have been friends since childhood and when he was in California visiting his family we spent most days together riding mountain bikes and doing typical outdoor kid stuff. I spent a lot of time in Hawaii throughout my life visiting my family on Oahu and Jake on Maui. Hawaii has always been a big part of me (more info)
