What To Expect

Explore the Road to Hana inside a luxe Limo-Van during this small-group 9- to 10-hour day trip with gourmet lunch and a visit inside Ka’eleku Cavern. There’s no better way to experience Maui’s iconic drive to Hana than aboard this luxury transport, limited to just eight guests, plus a stop to explore a fascinating volcanic cavern.

Start your trip with a morning pickup from your Maui hotel, enjoying a light breakfast of pound cake, fruit juice and Kona coffee as you embark on your drive to Hana. Your high-end limo-van, which seats a maximum of eight passengers, also offers air-conditioning, plush seating and extra-large windows to enjoy the panoramic views. As you ride, your guide will provide commentary on the sights and add context about the island’s history and native Hawaiian culture.

Enjoy the jaw-dropping scenery en route, admiring lush rainforests and stunning coastline as you head toward your first stop at the charming village of Ke’anae, an idyllic town set among the area’s taro fields. Continue your ride to Waikani Falls, one of the road’s more impressive waterfalls, where you can admire its shimmering pools of rainwater. 

Soon you’ll arrive at the amazing Ka’eleku Cavern. This giant underground space, created by volcanic activity thousands of years ago, is said to have been born thanks to Pele, the Hawaiian deity of fire. Check out the amazing range of stalagmites and stalactites found throughout this subterranean area, stopping to admire the surreal mounds of hardened “chocolate-like” lava that froze in place more than 30,000 years ago. It’s the perfect spot to grab a few photos.

Before continuing your trip, take a lunch break at a pavilion near the cavern. Enjoy a mouth-watering spread of seared ono with mixed greens, grilled chicken, vegetable pasta salad, brownie and fresh fruit. See the Itinerary below for a sample menu.

Proceed further along the road’s gorgeous scenery until you reach Hana. This isolated village along the rugged Pacific coast feels like a real-life tropical paradise thanks to its unspoiled beaches and luxuriant rainforests. Jump out of your limo-van to wander the area’s gushing waterfalls and thick groves of bamboo. Then join your guide for an exploration of the Hana Tropicals, a gorgeous plant nursery and garden that’s full of beautiful flowers and vegetation.

Make the return trip back home at a leisurely “Maui-style” pace, taking time to stop en route for swimming in one of the gorgeous freshwater pools and to simply kick back and enjoy the mellow vibes and gorgeous landscapes. Arrive back at your Maui hotel in the early evening.

Best Road to Hana tour I have been on
Valerie_R, Feb 2024
This is the 4th or 5th Road to Hana Tour that I have been on. Sue Hopkins was our guide and I don't think she repeated anything that I had heard on any previous tour. She was knowledgeable about the geology, vulcanic action, plants, trees, native wildlife and much more. She was a fantastic guide and we had a great time in spite of having to deal with rain!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Aloha Valerie, Mahalo for taking the time to review your Hana Cave-Quest adventure. Sue and our ohana of Hawai'i Certified Tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and know how to make any day in Maui magical. Rain is considered a blessing in Hawai'i and it seems you were truly blessed on your adventure with us. It is great to hear that you learned new things about Maui and Hana even after visiting Hana 4 or 5 times before. We are glad that you had a great day and we hope you will visit us again. Mahalo nui loa, Dave and Kathy Campbell Owners Temptation Tours
Carissa_H, Dec 2023

A wonderful day!
Linda_F, Jan 2023
Gail was very accommodating! Lunch was exquisite and Black beach so beautiful! We never were in the lava tube on previous trips.. so a new memory!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Aloha Linda, Thank you for taking the time to review your Hana Cave-Quest adventure. It’s great to hear how much you enjoyed visiting Ka’eleku Caven and of course, Wainapanapa Black Sand beach. We are glad you enjoyed your lunch and have a new memory to remember Maui with. Make sure you come to visit us again the next time you are here. All the best, Dave and Kathy Campbell Owners Temptation Tours
Hana Adventure

A very memorable trip. Our guide, Jimmy, was awesome. So much knowledge. The lunch was delicious and the scenery breathtaking. Glad we didn’t make the drive ourselves.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Aloha Terri, Thank you for taking the time to review your Road to Hana and Hana Cave-Quest adventure with Jimmy. We are happy to hear how much you enjoyed the breathtaking sites of Hana. Thank you for choosing us for your memorable day of seeing and learning about our island home. Jimmy and our family of Hawai'i Certified Tour guides have so much wonderful knowledge of Maui to share.

Thank you for a “Temptation” Fullfilled!
Phil_M, May 2021
Great Relief! Having driven this road twice ourselves!! Wayne was a gentleman & scholar arriving perfectly as planned. Gail was appropriately welcoming, enthusiastic, knowledgable, and professional from start to finish. All that was promised was realized!
Response from Host, May 2021
Aloha and thank you for sharing your Road to Hana and Ka'eleku Cavern adventure with us. We enjoy hearing from our visitors and the tales of our family of Hawai'i Certified Tour guides. The Cavern is such a unique experience and of course, you absolutely know the difference between having a comfortable ride with large windows and an expert driver compared to navigating the 617 curves and 54 one-lane bridges the Road to Hana is known for on your own. We will let, both, Gayle and Wayne know how much you enjoyed your day with them. We hope you visit us again soon. Mahalo nui loa, Dave and Kathy Campbell Owners Temptation Tours
Beauty and Wonder
Jim_S, Jan 2019
The beauty on this tour of the Hana highway was incredible. Sean our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge that made the trip so fulfilling. A must do whike in Maui. The choice to tour and not drive ourselves was so on point. Thanks Sean and Temptation Tours.

Carrie S, Mar 2018
This trip was definitely worth the price. The limo van was very nice, and my husband and I were with two other couples for the entire day. A group of six was truly the perfect number for this tour we were all able to get to know each other, and we each had space and comfy seating. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we stopped at several beautiful waterfalls and parks off of the beaten path that we would have never found on our own, as well as an adorable orchid farm. Lunch was really tasty, and our driver set up everything for us to be ready to eat while we toured the lava cave. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. The only downsides to this tour were that towards the end, I felt like our guide was continuing to ramble when we had all lost interest, and this tour made for a very long day of being in a vehicle.

KimKimberli_H, Jan 2018
There were some definite pros and cons to this trip...Pros: great, comfortable seating captain chairs visit to cave was good and not offered by other tour companies lunch was excellent swimming at waterfall site was for cons: driver had an attitude i.e. my way or the highway a store bought pastry like a hostess made, pre-wrapped danish one would get at a convenience store or gas station isn't a continental breakfast in my book, no coke or pepsi product soda to me includes diet coke or a pepsi, not just a cheap mango something can of juice, not offered cheap danish until well over 2 hours into trip, didn't spend a lot of time at black sand beach, not many photo ops, price was about 50 per person over other Road to Hana tours and they take you to the 7 pools, as well as all the way on the road not just halfway and stopping only as far as Hana - so too expensive for what you get. Even though we were the only passengers on our trip, it was painfully clear we really had no say in the day's activities or how long we were going to stop at each spot. While the driver was very informative, he was not very accommodating, clearly didn't appreciate diverting from his agenda even to the point of getting irritated if interrupted from his spiel. We accidentally left phone in restroom and while he did take us back about a mile to retrieve it, he made it crystal facial expressions / tone he was displeased. Will never take this tour again we much prefer other tour companies like Valley Isle. Seat comfort is not worth extra expense and driver attitude - not a very good trip.

Steve F, Nov 2017
Gayle was a very safe driver with a great love for the Hana Highway. Her enthusiasm showed the whole day. She was knowledgable about many of the plants we saw and knew the best places for pictures. The Lava Tube was interesting and the black sand beach was amazing! We had a great day. I highly recommend this tour.

Todd P, Aug 2017
We really enjoyed this trip! Melanie is a first-class guide with a wealth of knowledge, which made for a great experience. We took the trip with our three boys 12,13, and 14 and I'm glad that we did. I would have given this tour a 5th star if they could somehow shave a couple of hours off the duration because it made for an extremely long day, full of slow, winding roads, which had a few of us feeling a little green. I think my wife and I enjoyed the trip more than the boys did, so I would have to say this is a tour probably a little more suitable for grown adults than people with kids or teens, although they thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the chilly waterfall and exploring the cave tube. All in all, I'm very glad we went on this tour!

Kenda_K, Jul 2016

The most recommended, it was like a private and customized tour with only Sue and two of us.

Really enjoyed someone else driving, so we could enjoy the views. The lava tube cave was a fun exploration, the sea cave on the Hana beach was cool, and the swim under the waterfall was a refreshing adventure.

Claudia S, Oct 2016
Das war ein toller Ausflug. Die Straße nach Hana ist von der Natur her ein absolutes Erlebnis und muss man gesehen haben. Der Tagesausflug in der Kleingruppe war ideal. Wir waren in Summe 7 Personen, super bequemer und klimatisierter Van, sehr kompetenter Guide, der zudem auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen ist. Der Ausflug an sich ist lang, wir wurden 7 Uhr abgeholt und nach 12 Stunden wieder ins Hotel gebracht hat sich aber auf alle Fälle rentiert und kann ich nur empfehlen.
