We were assigned the best tour guide/driver ever. Luke was so entertaining and informative. He drove with such caution and care but yet managed to narrate non stop, sharing interesting info with us on the sights and attractions. The best tour guide I have ever had in my 60 years of existence, highly recommend to anyone who is coming to Maui for the first time / wants to explore Hana!

This was a wonderful tour. The tour guide, Lepa, was very informative, helpful, and funny. The Road to Hana itself is gorgeous - with many turns, bridges, and waterfalls. Simple, but delicious breakfast and lunch were provided.

Loved this experience! Luke was punctual, professional and knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture, history, agriculture, and more!

It was great value for your money and the tour guide was very knowledgable.

Great vehicle. Driver was very accommodating for the days activities.
