It was a bummer that the road was closed passed Hana and we couldn't do this as a reverse loop. You drive all the way out and have lunch and then we make a couple stops on the way back in. We would have liked to spent more time at some of the stops like waterfalls. but its a long road to travel without any stops so we get it. Recommend driving yourself if thats what you want to do as well. There were over 600+ hairpin turns each way but and a bunch of blind curves and one lane bridges so beware of that as well. overall a very beautiful drive and Everett the tour guide was fabulous. We got a slice of pineapple and croissant for breakfast. There was either fish, chicken, or tofu hot plate with rice for lunch. And there were coffee drinks, juices and waters.
This is the way to see Maui!

This tour was worth every penny. Our tour guide, Janelle, was unbelievable. She was so knowledgeable about all of the stops and was just so much fun to hang out with for the day. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to get a good feel for Maui in one day. Beautiful places and waterfalls!

The bus never arrived at my hotel to pick me up. I waited over an hour and called and texted many times, the website stated they were open 24 hours and I still have not heard back from anyone
The Perfect Day!

The road to Hana is a must for anyone visiting Maui. Be aware..the road absolutely requires caution and experienced driving skills. We opted to take a guided tour so we could sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery rather than worry about the next hairpin turn. Everett was the perfect tour guide! He shared his love for the island and expertly navigated the winding road. If I had one negative comment about the day, it would be the restroom facilities. For a must-see attraction on the island, all of the facilities along the road to Hana were in need of some attention. But Everett made the day fun for all and I would highly recommend this tour….at least once.
Great experience!

Doug and Janel were great in providing history, culture and bringing to life the natural beauty on the Hana Highway.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Mahalo for the feedback and shout out to Doug and Janel!! We are grateful that you enjoyed the tour and beauty of our island!
Awesome first day in Maui
Jessica_H, Aug 2021
Top notch experience from start to finish! Pick up was easy to coordinate, food throughout the day was delicious, and it was so nice to take in the sights without having to worry about navigating through an unfamiliar area or paying crazy high price for a rental car to do it on our own. We got some great tips on sights to see and places to eat during our stay as well. Would highly recommend!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you for the review and feedback Jessica! I am glad to hear that you and Meagan had a nice time and Everett gave you some great insight about our beautiful island. Until we meet again - A Hui Hou!, Lilia

Enjoyed our tour. Everett was top notch. He had lots of information to share and kept me engaged the whole trip. Only thing you need to bring is your phone and they provide everything else.

Doug and his beautiful wife are incredibly knowledgeable about Hawaii. Very professional, on time, clean updated transportation, towels, coffee you name it, they have it. When we stopped at Dougs parents home, which happens to be on the Road to Hana, and we got the banana nut bread!! Yummy. Really great folks.
Response from Host, Jun 2021

Hopefully we can see you folks back in Maui when Tia graduates. Ha! Happy Birthday Tia!! #girlstrip #sweetsixteen A Hui Hou (Until we meet again!), Doug & Lilia
Outstanding tour guide and luxury treatment— our best experience ever on this, our third, trip to Maui!
Scott_I, May 2021
Treated special, starting with their pre-trip call to answer any questions and get beverage order, pick-up on time with breakfast loaf and fresh cut pineapple, given a backpack with all items we might need during the day (sunscreen, sanitizer, mask, lozenges for motion sickness(not needed due to gentle ride on leather seats in a new custom tour vehicle), Kleenex). Tour guide Doug grew up on the Hana Road so he infused his interesting tales and stories with personal insights. His knowledge of and passion for Maui’s history and evolution, environmental mistakes made in the past, and how solutions led to more problems entertained us as the beautiful sights on the back side of the Hana Road on our counterclockwise route which few tourists ever see, kept us turning our heads to take it all in. Doug made extra stops to take advantage of that day’s unexpected sights. All enjoyed the excellent sit down dinner in Hana, then completing the ride, we rarely had any traffic going our way back. Our stop halfway from Hana was extraordinary! Overall a wonderful day!

Aloha Scott & Connie! Mahalo for the awesome detailed review and for joining us on the journey circumnavigating Mauna Haleakala! We especially appreciate all of your follow up by sending us the kind words by text after the tour, sharing your great experience and feedback with your concierge at your resort and for getting this review posted after all the technical issues. This review is worth even more to us knowing how persistent you were in getting this posted!! Malama Pono and A Hui Hou (Take care & until we meet again), Doug & Lilia

Beautiful Road to Hana Tour!
James_M, May 2021
Doug and Everett were great guides and took very good care of us! I would highly recommend going on this tour. I would caution anyone who gets car sick easily not to go since the road has over 600 winding turns. 10 out out of 10
Response from Host, May 2021
Aloha James! Mahalo for your review. Congratulations to you and Maddie on your next step in your journey as husband and wife. I'm glad we got a chance to meet the both of you and show you our beautiful island. A hui hou! (until we meet again!)
