This was so worth it! The BEST way to do the road to Hana. Our guide Zach was outstanding! It was worth it for the added info, the great spots to stop, and the whole group to get a chance to see the beauty without driving. I definitely recommend this!

Our road to Hana tour was phenomenal! Zak was truly an amazing and super nice guide. I felt so safe riding through that treacherous road where often only one car can go through. He showed us so many Amazing places, went swimming with us in various waterfalls and the black sand beach and took us to amazing eateries. He knows a lot about Hawaii and Hawaiian legends which truly enriched our experience. He alps took so many pictures of us!!! Excellent experience. A+++++!!!!

This activity provides an unmatched personal, interactive experience with the Island. There are so many pockets of beauty hidden throughout Maui, and this tour allows you the unique opportunity to experience them in intimate and respectful way. The passion and admiration the guide has for the island and its people is infectious. One walks away from this experience with a new reverence for Maui, it’s culture, and it’s history. - 5 Adults
