This tour is fantastic! I have visited Maui many times but always stayed in the Kaanapali and Napili area and never visited the other half of the island until now. Spending a day driving to Hana didn"t appeal to me. So I looked into tour companies and came across Get Your Guide. There were openings the upcoming week (end of April) and booked a tour. The van was very large and roomy with comfortable seats and large windows. The highlight of the tour was our driver and tour director, Lisa. She was a wealth of knowledge of not only Hana but of Maui and the Hawaiian islands. I would say the drive to Hana and circle around the lower half of Maui is extremely challenging but Lisa is a pro and continuously filling us with her extreme knowledge while driving with extreme caution. She had freshly made breakfast and lunch sandwiches which we preordered and a cooler with cold water. I would highly recommend a tour with Get Your Guide.

My first guided tour. Lepa aka (big head) was fantastic! I was ( small head) we had a blast. 8 people on the tour. Lots of fun and shenanigans on this 8 hour trip. You get breakfast and lunch and water. Lepa was in passenger seat and training Richard who was driving. I like going around the back way instead of the normal way, less cars less traffic less headaches. Black sand beach hana farms and basically any place we wanted to stop at. Keanae lookout was my spot I wanted to stop at and they did and like always it was breathtaking. I strongly suggest using this company.

We were lucky due to a cancellation to get a private flight and Jake the pilot was extremely professional and informative. What an amazing ride. Worth every penny!

Wonderful day trip along the road to Hana. We enjoyed every minute; there was so much to see and experience. Aunty Sandy’s banana bread was delicious, too!!

Had a wonderful time with our guide Lepa (sp?)…she had so much great information and showed us lots of great spots!
