Aloha, my name is Sharon Viger (veejay). I am the new owner of Local Tastes of Maui, walking food tour!
I am very excited to take ownership from Cindi Weldon who created Local Tastes of Maui in 2011. I was the first person Cindi hired and promise to keep the tours up and running as she would. I live in Haiku (Upcountry) with my husband and two sons. Haiku is close to Makawao and Paia, which are interesting small towns and part of my neighborhood. I don't consider what I do as a job, it's too much fun. I love living on Maui and have been lucky for the past 29 years to call Maui home. Hoping to be on Maui another 29 more ;)
I am originally from S. Boston MA. I was never fond of the snow and use to watch Gilligan's Island. I told my Mom when I was 10, I was going to live in the middle of nowhere like Gilligan. It is still amazing to me today, that I am lucky to be living in Paradise!!!
I love the walking food tours and meeting new people weekly as well as re-living the days past on Maui. The tours offer tasty food, some local food/produce and a slice of Maui/Hawaiian history.
