Cultural experience of Hana
Michael_Z, Feb 2024
Great experience from start to finish. 10 hour trip in all. Great food and beautiful scenery. Demien did a super job customizing it to our desires. Great swim in secluded waterfalls with no other people around! Thankful for his experience driving as well. Would never want to drive the roads with hairpin turns and no place for two cars to pass each other. Local knowledge was important!!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you so much! I really enjoyed our conversations, and everyone’s ability to go with the flow. The time flew by as a result. All the best… 🤙🏽
Wonderful experience.
MaryE_S, Dec 2023
Our wonderful guide, Keola, was great. He obviously enjoyed sharing his love for this area’s culture, beaches, food, and plants. He was also a skilled driver on this challenging road.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Mahalo for sharing! Happy to hear Keola took great care of you. That road definitely demands a certain skill set. It’s second nature for Keola, since he is from Maui. Happy New Year and thanks for choosing us!
AMAZING personally tailored experience - just PERFECT! And Zak was great!
Rosa_M, May 2023
Zak was GREAT! Since we knew how long of a day this would be, we chose to do private tour so that we could go at our pace and spend the time on the things we wanted to (and skip the ones we knew we wouldn't enjoy as much). The FULL loop of the Road to Hana was just AMAZING... so much to see... and Zak knew exactly the perfect spots to stop at and things to point out. I believe he quickly realized that we were not much into souvenir shopping and he didn't even try taking us to any tourist traps. He did mention as we went along, the opportunities of places to stop and we felt comfortable saying yay or nay! We also stopped at a pretty cool local spot for lunch.... Hawaiian BBQ and what a view! Another favorite stop was an ice cream truck.... HOMEMADE coconut ice cream was THE best one I've ever tried in my lifetime. If it's your first time on Maui, and you can afford it, don't hesitate to book a private tour of the Road to Hana. And definitely do the full loop!!! So much more to see and the difference is like night and day between the two different sides of the island. We got to see the Haleakala from so many different angles... always impressive. We saw black sand beaches and red sand beaches. We also saw tons of waterfalls and canyons, a bamboo forest (so magical).... One super cool thing we did was to go inside a lava tube that was under a banyan tree... and on the other side a waterfall!!! I can't remember everything we saw. All I can say is JUST DO IT! It's an amazing experience. We felt safe at all times. And it was definitely worth the money.
Response from Host, May 2023
Wow! What an outstanding review! Mahalo Nui Loa! Happy to hear you had such a wonderful and memorable day. Zak will be so please to hear this!
Excellent tour and guide
Tiffany_B, Mar 2023
I am so glad we went with Terence rather than trying to drive on our own. He was an excellent guide, great driver, and took us to great spots that both my dad and I could safely enjoy. Mahalo!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you! Sounds like the grand finale of two great tours! Great combination for experiencing much of Maui. We greatly appreciate your patronage and feedback.
Marsha_S, Feb 2023
We had a wonderful day. Our tour guide was amazing!! Gave excellent information and history of the area.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Mahalo Nui Loa for your review! We really appreciate it. Come back and visit us again!
Hana tailored for us
Verlon_J, Jun 2022
We loved the waterfalls and the foliage. Hana is a beautiful place to visit. Our guide was helpful in tailoring our experience to our specific taste. We had ages ranging from 14 to 65 and all was pleased.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Aloha Verlon, thank you for sharing your experience! I had a great time with you all, and am happy to hear all needs were met.
Road to Hana
Anne_v, Feb 2022
The waterfalls and the valleys from the mountains to the sea. The Hali Hali chicken was a real treat! Zach did a great job.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thanks for sharing! That Huli Huli is tasty. Next time you visit, please let us know. We have more to show you. Mahalo!
Unforgettable experience
Kathy_C, Sep 2021
We had the best tour guide. Alex was such a funny, and very knowledgeable about the tour. It was a long tour but it didn't feel like a 10 hour tour at all. I learned so much of the history of the island Maui. What a beautiful tour, well worth it. I love Maui!! Thank you Alex!! We'll definitely be back. Mahalo 🤙
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Mahalo for sharing! Time flies when you’re having fun! When you get the most out of this tour, you definitely lose track of time. Apparently, Alex made sure of that! Come back and experience more with us next time!
Do this trip
Pete_L, Sep 2021
Great trip. The only way to do the road to Hana as there is so much to see and do along the way. Our guide was excellent and provided a perfect amount of information and local knowledge.
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Aloha Pete, thanks for taking the time to write about your experience! Happy to hear guide, Zach took such great care of you, while being educated along the way. Mahalo for your business!
This private tour was the best part of our vacation.
richard_k, Jul 2021
Our guide, Zac, was an encyclopedia of information and he really went the extra mile for us. We jumped off a 30 foot cliff, swam in the waterfall and got onto Black Sand Beach when other cars got turned away.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Mahalo for your feedback! 30 ft cliff eh? Way to go! Sounds like you were livin' the dream! Very excited to know this was the highlight of your trip, and that Zac took great care of you. It means a lot to us. Come back and visit us again!
Road to Hana Rainforest
Jason_B, May 2021
Worth every penny- our guide was friendly and patient, allowing the kids to spend a little extra time in some places and skip others to make this a truly personalized tour. When we asked to switch tour stops at the last minute, the company was very kind and helped us out. My husband was thrilled to not have to drive this tricky road himself, all of the stops were breathtaking and/or fun, and a fabulous time was had by all! I would very highly recommend this to anyone.
Response from Host, May 2021
Thank you for sharing your experience Lisa! It means a lot to know, it was everything you wanted it to be, and that Zak took great care of you. There is always more to explore, so next time you visit, let us know! Mahalo!
Best Road to Hana Tour
Sabrina_R, Apr 2021
I don’t even know where to begin on how great me and my husbands experience was with Damien. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and decided we wanted to have a tour for the Road to Hana instead of doing it on our own so we can have a better experience. From the beginning Damien had excellent communication. He is so knowledgeable and also has a good sense of humor so he was definitely good company and didn’t make the day drag. I have never been on a hike prior to this and Damien was the best. He literally was holding my hand to help me when I wasn’t able to get around certain areas and assured me that I would be okay. I felt very safe and started to get less nervous since I had his help and since he has done this countless times. He even took us to lunch at this little spot in Hana and the food was to die for. He also bought some banana bread for us to have for the next day! After a very tiring day, we wanted to head over to the beach to see if we could see some sea turtles and he offered to take us over there and there were so many it was amazing. This was such a great experience and I cant thank him enough for everything he did for us. If you are thinking of booking him for any tours you definitely won’t regret it he is the best. Thanks so much Damien!
Response from Host, Apr 2021
I’m speechless! Thank you for this amazing review Sabrina. I couldn’t ask for a better one! Definitely fun with a lot of laughs along the way. You both were great company, and now you’re officially a hiker! Well, It’s a start... Next time we go rock climbing! Lol!
Road to Hana Private Tour Experience
Peyton_D, Jan 2021
We did an incredible full day tour with Damian to Hana and back. Honestly could not recommend him and his company more. We went to so many places that were off the beaten path and there’s no way we could’ve found them on our own. Countless breathtaking hideaways that looked as though they were straight out of a movie. Damian was also super accommodating and made sure we hit the spots that were must sees on our list and really customized the day to what we were interested in. Driving was excellent and with frequent breaks to get out and explore neither of us felt sick at any point during the day. Had amazing and tasty local food/treats that were recommended to us as well. Easily one of the best experiences we’ve ever had on a vacation. Well worth it and we will definitely book with Damian and his group again on our next trip out to Maui. Also felt very safe the entire day as far as Covid precautions go for those looking to book during these times!
Response from Host, Jan 2021
Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing this incredible experience Peyton! You both were so much fun to explore with, and the entire day went smoothly. We accomplished a lot! Looking forward to creating more fun filled memories with you next time you visit.
Great Day

Thank you for sharing your experience Bryan! Glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for your generosity. Really appreciate it, and wish you the best during your travels.
Our Private Adventure to Hana
Tedan_H, Nov 2020
My friend and I booked this private tour on our vacation to Maui. We both wanted to experience the Road to Hana and not have to focus on driving. Our guide Demian not only accommodated our needs by driving us safely from location to location but he also taught us along the way about each place we stopped in. He molded the tour to meet our preferences even when we didn’t always voice them. Admittedly, we didn’t even know where to start. The tour experience felt both unique and full of adventure and we were very grateful for our tour guide. He was professional, friendly, engaging, and fun!
Response from Host, Nov 2020
Thank you for the wonderful review Katie! Had such a memorable time with you, and appreciate the connection. You ready to do it all over again? Let's go! Wishing you a spirited Holiday, and please let me know when you visit Hawaii again. There is always more to explore with such great company...
Ultimate experience that’s not the traditional Road to Hana
Tedan_H, Nov 2020
My friend and I booked this private tour after hearing many times about how difficult and dangerous the drive is, and we both wanted to experience the trip by not having to worry about driving. I am so glad to find this tour! Our tour is led my Damian. He’s a wonderful guide. He made sure we have all the info before we left for the 10-hour trip. Since we stayed at Kihei, he came picked us right on the dot and brought many necessary supplies (insect repellent, sunscreen, towel, water, etc) so we can have a fun day. The ride is super clean and he told us that everything is disinfected before a new group. We felt pretty safe (covid wise) getting on this trip. Since it’s a private tour, Damian tailored towards our liking. My friend and I both wanted to swim in the waterfall pool, so he took us to a local spot that’s not the busy waimoku or twin fall. It’s fabulous because it felt like just us in this nature wonder, and the water fall was super refreshing and beautiful. We got to visit other cool and local spots including red sand beach, black sand beach, lava tube, and a secret cave pool. He made sure my friend and I stayed safe while allowing us to have all the fun. We would not have been able to experience all that without Damian’s knowledge. His drive was super smooth and we had great time chatting along the way. I had many questions about Hawaiian culture, Maui natural habitat, locals, and species living on the island. He has studied Maui extensively on his own so I learned a lot from him. So if you don’t want have just another sightseeing, but also a cultural experience, a expedition to see true beauty of Maui, and a little nudge to conquer your fear in the nature, the Road to Hana tour by Makena Maui Adventures would be the right choice.
Response from Host, Nov 2020
Mahalo Nui Loa for this outstanding review Tedan. We really appreciate it, and work hard/fun to make such experiences so memorable for you. But can't take all the credit, as you both were such a joy to be around, making the day exceptional for me as well. I have nothing but gratitude for such connections. You're a gem, and hope to show you more, next time you visit.
Beautiful scenery

Response from Host, Nov 2019
