Our guide Jay was awesome! He was laid back, funny and even had a cool play list to match the vibe of the trip. He made us feel safe in the winding roads and knew local spots. Communication was excellent prior to the trip with info on what to bring and the vehicle was immaculate upon arrival. The benefit of a private tour with door to door service is deciding which places to stop for photos or swims and at your own pace. We opted for full Hana experience. He gave us guidelines and took us to several local business that have clean restrooms to change. Started trip at Safeway w/ a Starbucks then we headed the east side route vs the west side. Avoiding traffic and crowds. We stopped at Bee farm-local fruit tasting (ex strawberry papaya)-botanical gardens-swam at black sand beaches w/ lava tube- sea turtles-local delicious food trucks- banana bread- several beautiful views of waterfalls even one or two you can swim and take pictures in. Kona ice too! Worth every penny!

Was thinking of doing the Road to Hanna drive myself but last minute backed out and booked this tour and I am so glad that I did. Our driver Dustyn made our experience unforgettable. We rode in a specious and comfortable SUV and enjoyed the view without having to worry about driving the narrow and dangerous roads. We made stops along the way and the tour is tailored to you and your needs. Our tour guide took us to an amazing waterfall and other places otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to visit. Definitely plan to do this tour again when so return to Maui. 10/10 recommend.

What a fabulous trip! The scenery on the road to Hana was absolutely breathtaking! Our guide, Tom, was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. His intimate knowledge of the flora, fauna, history, and culture of Maui and Hawaii greatly enriched our experience! Tom knew so many special sights to stop at and it was a fabulous day! He catered the trip to what we were hoping to see along the way. He went above and beyond, we couldn’t be happier with the experience! Mahalo, Tom!

So glad we hired them to drive us! Jay was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He knows how drive the curves safely and knows where to stop- do NOT drive this yourself! Save your marriage!

Amazing experience. 100% better than group tours we took on Oahu. Kaipo was so friendly and fun! Our group of 6 had a great time!
