We thoroughly enjoyed our all day tour to Hana and beyond with Ed our driver. Ed was a very relaxed, safe, competent driver who was a fountain of knowledge of the route. He was always ready to make photo stops whenever possible, never rushing anyone. It was a bonus to be able to charge our electronic devices in the van.
Larry is the Flora and Fauna man of Maui. We had such a beautiful time in our ride hearing about the Maui flowers, trees and natural life. His Hawaiian folklore was so colorful and heartfelt. Mahalo Larry for a spectacular 25th anniversary tour of lovely. MAUI. We will always have a warm place in pour heart for the road to Hana....❤
Two thumbs up. I would recommend this trip to everybody including those of you who suffers from motions sickness like I do. Of course I had to take Dramamine less drowsy formula, this 13 hours trip was well worth it. Our driver/ tour guide, Gavin, really made a difference on this trip. Not only he is native Hawaiian, but he is truly passionate about Hawaii and preserving natural beauty of Hawaii. With his knowledge and explanation of every corner of Hana, now my favorite place in Hawaii is Hana. Simply breathtaking. I would deterred all of those dare drivers who opted to drive up to Hana themselves from doing it so, and let the professional do the driving. The one who knows Hana roads like back of his hands, Gavin. Bravo to Gavin and thank you for make our trip to Maui so enjoyable and memorable one.
Our guide was very informative and so fun! He made our trip so much more entertaining.
Touring with Travis was a hoot. Hes from Hana so we learned so much more about the region. At lunch he sang and played the Hawaiian guitar - what a musician! Fascinating scenery. Glad we did this.
This Hana tour was one of the best parts of our Maui vacation. The ample breakfast buffet, lunch, and the unlimited snacks and drinks provided throughout the day, made this tour really worth the money. Free hotel pickup and drop-off were an additional bonus..... Our driver and guide, Travis was a Very nice, warm hearted, and loving person who referred to us, his guests, as FAMILY/ BROTHERS and SISTERS....and had vast knowledge of the area, history and vegetation besides being an expert, experienced, and careful driver too. When entering the tour bus in the morning, we asked Travis about whether to choose left or right side seats to sit, and he suggested left side. Thank you Travis, am sooooo grateful for that wonderful suggestion, because some of the magnificent views on the Road to Hana had maximum visibility from left side seats.....Stopped at several places including all the viewing spots on the way...Absolutely loved the way Travis stopped at each and every big/small waterfall and sang in a funny way waaaaaterfall....He also taught us some great Hawaiian greetings.....A Hui Hou.....!!
Aloha! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. It was a once in a lifetime experience. We were picked up and returned to our hotel which made it convenient. We had plenty of time at each stop and were not rushed.Our bus driver, Kane, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the flowers, trees, and vegetation. He was also very safety conscious. At one point he even passed out wet-wipes when we returned to the bus after a long hike. The tour provided soft drinks, juice and water. Some of the highlights included walking on the black sandy beach, hiking to a beautiful waterfall, and seeing the Keanae Congregational Church church that was built in 1860. One suggestion: don't buy the lunch that is part of the tour package. Instead purchase a delicious lunch that is available at the lunch stop. Oh, there is also delicious banana bread, too!!
A long day but worth it! Amazing scenery but I would not drive this road by myself.
Our guide - Peaches - was simply a delight. As with any of these kinds of tours, there are always choices made that include some things and exclude others and that was the case here. Still, Peaches stories and insights made the day wonderful. And it was simply beautiful
Don't know where to start. Our driver was Travis and he was nothing short of fantastic. His knowledge was amazing and he even pointed out little things that most people miss. The price included a continental breakfast and I paid the extra for lunch which was well worth it. The tour had plenty of drinks on hand the entire day. Travis even sang to us various Hawaiian songs. Now the one thing that was bad was the advertisement for hotel pick up. The place we stayed was on the list but when the tour company, Polynesian Tours contacted us, we were told we had to meet the shuttle at a shopping center that was about 5 miles away. Polynesian Tours and Viator need to get their act together on specifics such as this.
Highly recommend this tour. We would not have liked to drive the road ourselves, leave it to the experts! Our driver was very knowledgeable of the area and as he grew up in the area he actually pointed out where his grandparents lived along the drive. The driver was very attuned to our needs and had water and juice available. He made sure we stopped frequently for bathroom stops. We had lunch in Hana which was included in our tour and very good. He was a very careful driver and we felt safe at all times.
The tour was great! I wish we could have been out to see more, but it is a very narrow and winding road so you get out at the safest spots possible. Definitely don't miss this tour and get a lot sf of Aunty Sandy's banana bread! Kane was a great guide who always puts safety first!
This is not to be missed! The drive to Hana and beyond on narrow and winding roads is best left to someone familiar with the roads, and Larry did an amazing job. He was also kind enough to provide water for us all day. We saw incredible views, and learned more about trees and flowers and the land than we can ever remember, but it was all fascinating. We loved this tour and learned so much. A must!
Very good tour with an excellent tour guide Ed. Ed know so much about Hawaii and the sites along the road to and from Hana! It's a long day, so be prepared. Buy the lunch that is an option with this tour, much easier, and there really isn't a whole lot of options for food to begin with!
This tour is one that should be done by everyone who is on the island one time. Don't miss it!
Our guide Bruce was the BEST tour guide I've ever had! He really made the whole trip worthwhile. He was very informative and hilarious and kept us alert to hidden gems that you might not see if you were just driving the road yourself. We learned a lot about the history of the island and we stopped at a lot of beautiful water falls, beaches, and other great photo opportunities. Unfortunately the pools are closed so you're not able to go swimming, but the trip is still worth every penny!
I would highly recommend booking this tour - you're able to relax as much as you can on that crazy road! and take in the sights instead of worrying about driving. If you can somehow request Bruce, do it! You won't regret it :
Roy was an AMAZING guide. He prepared us for the long day, suggested great spots for photos, and shared great history along the way. I HIGHLY recommend this tour for any visit to Maui.
This was the highlight of my trip to Hawaii. Our driver Larry made this a truly memorable day.
He has extensive knowledge of the areas we passed through, also about the plants and wildlife we saw.
Larry also made this an entertaining day, passing on his enthusiasm for this subject.
I'm glad that someone else was doing the driving - I would have missed out on so much otherwise!
