We got a scenic, botanical, geological historical, and cultural experience with Aunt Jamie at the wheel of our 7-person tour. She knew every twist and spot of interest on the Road to Hana, and had stories about most of them. The multiple snacks were welcomed, the BBQ for lunch and picnic at a Hana flower shop was beyond expectation. Jamie made this very special trip come fully alive for us.

We had a fantastic Road to Hana experience yesterday with Charleston. We are a family of four and there were four other passengers with our tour. Our tour guide was funny, extremely knowledgeable and was quite the driver!
