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 activities is very important to me. Here at Barefoot Tours you will not only find great prices for all the tours, but you will also find people that care about their customers. I have been in the sales/customer service industry since I left college and still truly enjoy the personal touch. The "Service with Aloha" is still alive. I have traveled to all the Hawaiian Islands many times and have been on almost all the activities around all the islands. Taking Hawaiian culture and history classes lead by Kumu Hula "Charles Ka'upu" (you can "Google" his name and learn more about him) was a great experience. I take great pride in carefully selecting tours for you or your family that will best suit your needs and interests.
I went on my first vacation to Maui in the year 2000 - it was love at first sight - by far the best climate I had ever experienced. I flew back to California and put my house and tennis business up for sale. I fell in love with the tropical island paradise immediately - the warm weather and the ocean conditions are ideal. I have always loved the outdoors and Maui is the perfect playground. My sweetheart Stephanie and I still go on all the activities around Maui and the other islands during our time away from work and "test-drive" them for you. I live in Maui, but I love all the other islands just as much. I also still play golf and tennis. Swimming, snorkeling and hiking are also favorites and we never get tired of a luau by the ocean, a sunset from the boat or just relaxing at one of the many beautiful beaches. We still enjoy the "Old Lahaina Luau" or the "Feast At Lele" luau like the first time. I will sincerely try to make your visit the best and most memorable vacation in the islands.
A warm "Aloha" to all,
Jeff and Becky
on Maui. We booked our luau, bike ride and snorkeling experiences with him and I
was relieved to find each of the three were without flaws. We appreciate
Andreas' recommendations, his patience in handling all our questions and his
diligence in making sure everything we needed via email arrived intact.
It was nice to arrive and know the three attractions we booked were already paid
and we had tickets in hand. All we had to do was show up and enjoy the beauty
and fun of Maui.
So, Andreas, a question. Where do we sign up to get a job like yours? Lucky
Thanks for the note and I have been meaning to write to say thanks for all the
help. It turned out to be a great vacation. We were able to do everything we
wanted to do including snorkeling, horseback riding, luau and we even made it up
to the waterfall. We really appreciate all the help and advice that Andreas gave

Andreas, thank you so much for your assistance in helping me book my crew of 8 on the tours we took. We had an absolutely fabulous time. I'm already researching condos (4 of us are coming back in February 2014). We'll be booking Blue Water Rafting Whale Watching tours and a few others we didn't have time for. You will be hearing from me. As a travel agent, it's comforting to know I have a contact in a company such as your.
