What To Expect

This guided tour of the Hana Highway has photo ops around every turn, from thundering waterfalls and sweeping vistas to rural towns by the coast. Visit areas like Pai’a, Keanae, Wailua Falls, and Pua’a Ka’a State Park, and make a stop at Wai’anapanapa State Park—home to a black sand beach.

Aside from the unforgettable sights, you’ll hear how Hana has played an important role in Hawaii’s history, from being the birthplace of Queen Ka’ahumanu to home of the island’s first resort. Nearly 5,000 people inhabit the district from Keanae to Kipahulu, which generally falls under the “Hana district” that visitors know it today.

Delightful
Kim_M, Jan 2024
Eli was a fantastic tour guide!!! He was super fun and considerate really enjoyed him!!! The only thing I would change is to have more time for photos!!! We missed the beautiful waterfalls and eucalyptus trees, pictures thru the van window were not very good!
Long day in mountains and rain forest
Peter_H, Jan 2024
Turtles on beach was unique as well as swim under the water falls. Glad I didn’t have to drive those winding roads!
Bad organisation pre tour, lovely guide, short stops
Helen_M, Jan 2024
The main thing that has lowered the star rating was the organisation pre tour. I had picked it as it offered a pick up at my hotel. I got a text while on a different tour the day before about the location of the pickup. When I got back I got WiFi and checked this was not near me- 40 minute walk away! I tried to ring number provided, closed. My hotel found another number still open but has nothing to do with transfers- they open at 5am but she had another couple of calls with same problem. I got up early and tried to ring from 5am, answer phone says open at 7am (tour 6:40). My hotel manager luckily offered me a lift to the meeting point. We then drove 20 minutes to the group meeting point at 07:00 near Kalhului in a supermarket car park, met tour leader and other the 4 on our tour. We had been swapped to another company ? because it’s a small group. We were meant to get a ‘to go’ breakfast pack here from another car, after 30 minutes waiting we were informed she had contacted the office- they were unaware a tour was out today, so someone would pick up the breakfast packs in around 10 minutes then a 20 minute drive to get here (this would have been 60 minutes waiting in a car park). We discussed our concerns about wasted time we didn’t want to miss out on tour (3 of us has eaten already 2 happy to grab food and did from supermarket), however we still did not leave until breakfast had arrived at 07:55. Breakfast was croissant, yogurt, apple and small banana bread- nice but not worth the wait. We had a quick stop at some trees (beautiful colours), a banana bread cafe (yes we had some in long awaited breakfast box), and a sea view point. Then we had our 2 swim stops, first only 20 mins second 40-45 mins. Both involved a significant part of the time to try to get in/out of the water. The first had 2 waterfalls and a bit of a rocky walk to get to the freezing water. The second was the beautiful black sands which had an easy cliff walk then stair to get down and back. Both stops needed longer to fully relax and not just go ‘see it’. Our included lunch was at a pizza place- very tasty and enough pizza was left over. Our last stop was the turtles (tour January ? Seasonal). I gave up counting at 50 on the beach. My favourite stop. But again only 15-20 minutes could have been longer for either watching the turtle, walk, swim. Back to the car park at 4:10 and my apartment 4:40 (transfer driver not only brought be back to correct hotel but to my nearest entrance not the main lobby entrance- thanks). Overall if the 3 main stops had another 20 mins that would have made coming back 5:40 still early and made a big difference on my enjoyment and not as rushed. If the pre tour was organised better I would have been in a better less stressed mood at the start to start enjoying the day sooner. Both my guide and driver were lovely.

Beautiful scenery and tour driver was entertaining. Very fun. Well worth booking tour. It wouldn't be as enjoyable to drive the winding road.
More than we expected
Elizabeth_C, Dec 2022
Our driver, Sale, was fabulous and stopped at all the places we wanted to see and the some! The bus was comfortable and we were picked up at our hotel, so no extra driving. I would highly recommend.
ROAD TO HANA
David_M, Dec 2022
My wife & I had the pleasure of spending the day with our guide Sale’. He was very entertaining, knowledgeable & pleasant. He pointed out many interesting sights, plants & history. Continental breakfast, a delicious lunch & snacks included. We did a trip to Hana 10 yrs ago but this trip made more stops & many at places we had not seen before. Highly recommend this trip with Polynesian Tours. Very interesting, affordable & thoroughly entertaining!
It IS worth it!
hopperrose, Dec 2022
I don't think you have to go back and forth about which tour to pick. Simply, pick this one with Polynesian Tours! We were blessed to have Sale as our tour guide. He made sure we got every nook of Road to Hana and really made the money we spent worth it. Sale has immense knowledge of Maui and everything on the road to Hana. Little things as simple as where to get the "I survived the Road to Hana" and he took us to places we are so grateful we ended up stopping at. If you want to make every penny count please make sure you book your trip with Polynesian Tours and with Sale! Thanks Sale for this great experience!

Rainforest
Wa_N, Oct 2022
Rainbow eucalyptus were fascinating . The lush rainforest was truly amazing relative to the dry side. Would have been adequate to go halfway. Really nothing in Hana

Best group tour of our lifetime
Jasmine_S, Jul 2022
Our driver explained all the significant places, exercised patience, and kept the group engaged throughout the entire experience. It was our 26th anniversary and he made us feel super special
Book your trip to Hana with no regrets!
Ann_J, Jul 2022
I want to start by saying our driver Ed was amazing! The road to Hana is not an easy drive and I felt safe the whole time which to me is most important. It was a great time, we hit all the promised stops and the hot pizza lunch at Hana Farms was the cherry on top. Like all tours I just wish there was more time at the black sand beach and waterfalls but Ed made great use of the time we had and we are satisfied. I definitely recommend this tour to family and friends!
One of the greatest experience we have so far
Tauqueer_N, Jun 2022
We have a great experience and I recommend everyone specially the first timers to Maui to try this tour. Our driver ‘Saleh’ was superb, besides being vocal and entertaining he is pretty knowledgeable of Maui history and personally he’s pretty kind and affectionate. Also, the stops OMG can’t explain in words how beautiful and soul soothing it was.
The knowledgeable and...
