      The best tour to Hana
      Spencer made this day an incredible memory for my family! We chose this tour because we had seniors traveling with us who needed a customized tour and our guide exceeded any expectation we could have imagined. We were treated with high energy, uniquely elevated information about the beauty and history of Maui. Our guide has obvious passion for the history and people of Maui and he enlightened us for 8 hours strong and introduced us to secret viewing spots and the best food choices on the road to Hana. This company has high quality and spacious vehicles that were comfortable for my 77 year old parents. We left feeling a sense of joy and gratitude for choosing the right tour after traveling over 11 hours to get to Maui. The expense is worth your time and quality of experience!

      Amazing Hana tour!
      We had a phenomenal time, definitely worth booking! Our tour guide Gene was phenomenal! Super kind and friendly, knowledgeable and a great driver. He easily and quickly adjusted plans based on our group preferences, which was much appreciated. Would do a tour with him again!

      Well worth it! Great Day!
      Experience Hawaii saved the day in Maui. The booking company failed to provide Experience Hawaii with the information and payment of our tour. Experience Hawaii honored the tour anyway and provided a great guide,Jonah,who really took care of us. IOA state park and La Perouse Bay were gorgeous and Makena Beach was scenic.We learned about the recovery efforts in Lahaina and information about Maui. We also saw some lovely waterfalls. It was a great day.

      Pricey but worth the money
      We are a retired couple who wanted to experience the road to Hana without driving it ourselves. We heartily recommend Experience Hawaii. We chose a private tour because wanted complete flexibility. Melissa was our guide and she was delightful. Full of knowledge and a free spirit personality. She was able to take us to places which the average person does not go to and we avoided places where there are normally large groups of people. We had a great fun day. I would recommend driving to meet your guide in Kahului which saves time and adds the time to how much you can see on the tour.

      Definitely hire these guys!
      We had the best time! Our guide was John and he was just fantastic. He knew all the best places to stop and was just on top of it! We were getting hungry and he knew exactly when we’d make it to Hana so he called and preordered our pizza from Hana Farms so it was ready when we arrived. He also recommended their banana bread which was just amazing. It was me, my 30 year old daughter and her fiancée, plus my 9 year old son. We all agreed it was the highlight of our trip to Maui. One of the best parts of having a guide instead of going it alone was the drive back. We had started later (around 1015 AM) and so it was dark when we drove back. John expertly drove the twisty roads while the rest of us slept in the back. One other thing I wanted to mention is my son has intense motion sickness on twisty roads. He had zero problems on this trip. John drove at a pace which alleviated any possible motion sickness. We fully intend to hire John for future excursions when we return!

      Phenomenal Private Road to Hana experience
      The private Road to Hana tour far exceeded our expectations. The majestic landscape of deep valleys, gulches, waterfalls and the ocean, along with the beautiful trees, fruits and flowers, are breathtaking. You could rent a Jeep and see this on your own. But what set this journey apart was our phenomenal tour guide, Spencer. His kindness and spirit was akin to the Hawaiian people. Spencer taught us how to appreciate the language, the customs, the thoughtful meaning behind what the people brought over on canoes when settling to the islands, and their resilience. Spencer was also flexible with our stops—coffee and breakfast sandwiches, lunch at a botanical garden, coconut ice cream, handmade cacao chocolates, and watching the green sea turtles sunbathing on the beach. Thank you, Spencer, for a day we’ll never forget!

      Best Tour ever!
      Spencer, Spencer, Spencer! What an amazing, present and thoughtful tour guide. We had young and old and he catered specifically to each of our desired experiences. He loves Maui, he is curious and smart and he is gifted with the ability to bring his heart open to the tourists he shepherds. We were able to experience the beauty, the people, the foods and more that make this island our favorite place in the world. Magical.

      Tour experience far greater than driving!
      John Moore was our tour guide. The night before, he called to make sure we had everything needed to make our experience amazing. He then texted a list of items to bring just to make sure we had a checklist based on his experience. That was super cool. His vehicle was a newer Suburban. Lots of room. Leather interior. It was really nice. I was concerned because my wife gets really queasy on windy roads but the vehicle was perfect coupled with John’s expert driving skills….we never heard a peep. John is an absolute savant. We joked that he has memorized every rock on the island! He was impressive with his knowledge of history and facts….but more importantly on where all the cool spots are. His demeanor is spot-on, perfect for this job. He’s funny, kind, great with the whole family. He won’t say “Go get in that pool over there”. No…he says “Follow me and I’ll show you the cool spots!” He helped with great family pics and made sure we properly captured our memories. John, you made our day special. You are a great guy and we hope to see you again if and when we return to this magical place.

      Magical time on the way to Hana
      We had a fantastic time seeing everything the island of Maui has to offer. John out personal tour driver/guide/ expert photographer was very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating to our needs and wants. John was a total gentlemen and we totally recommend the private tour to Hana with John. Thank you John for a wonderful adventure and for driving us so I did not have to. 🚗

      Wonderful day touring the road to Hana with incredible red & black sand beaches and waterfall stops. Our guide, Michael, drove the windy roads expertly as he told us about the spectacular plants, forests & history of this beautiful island. Our customized tour couldn’t have been better.

    We decided to do a tour of Hana rather than drive because of inexperience with the terrain and wanting everyone (driver included) to enjoy the views. We searched many tour companies and they seemed to do the same “touristy” things. We decided a private tour was the best route. We were greeted by Michael (owner) and immediately felt at ease with his experience and warm welcome. Nicole was our driver and I can’t say enough about her! She quickly got our family’s “vibe” and decided to do the reverse tour (rentals aren’t allowed on these roads) and take us to places that she personally has experienced and loved (waterfall was the best). We were a five person group ranging from ages 21-52 and pretty active so we were able to handle the hikes/climbs/walks. Taking Dramamine was key! Nicole was also an excellent driver (don’t let her size fool you). She showed us the best sights and was always asking to take pictures for us. The pictures speak for themselves!

    We recently did the VIP Private Road to Hana Tour and absolutely loved it. John was our tour guide and he was so informative, took us to so many great spots that we would have never found on our own. I highly recommend this company for anyone interested in doing this on their trip - well worth the time and money.

    This was my first trip to Maui and didn’t really know what to expect, it’s so hard knowing who’s going to be a good guide or not but luckily we had a friend recommend Maui Tours to us from their trip last summer.
    We were truly blown away by our trip to Hana! There were so many stops and surprises along the way that we never would have known to do without someone to show us where to look. We saw so many waterfalls and I took so many pictures I still haven’t finished going through them. My brother even jumped from a cliff, which I was too scared to do, but I got an awesome video of it and he was stoked about as he’s never done anything like that!
    It’s such a beautiful drive and our guide handled it with patience both for the drivers on the road and for us and our many stops for banana bread (we bought 11 loaves!! Aunt Sandy's is the BEST). It is a long winding drive but totally worth it once you make it to the black sand and red sand beaches. I’m so glad we went with a tour instead of trying to do the drive ourselves, we definitely saw more than what I had googled before the trip and it was much less stressful, plus our driver was funny and knew so much interesting stuff. Absolutely incredible!

    My wife and I had been hesitant to drive the road to Hana on a previous visit. The driver always loses put on majority of the sites and gains a little more stress from having to drive around tight corners and taking instructions on how to drive from your significant other.

    That's where John from Maui Experience Tours stepped in. We met John in front of a grocery store and he went in and brought back drinks and snacks to our liking. John was very knowledgeable of not only Maui's history and all the stops around the Road to Hana, but he has a great knowledge of many other sites around the world. He was a great person to talk to.

    Honestly, I would be pretty upset had we not taken this private tour. John took the opportunity to understand what our interests were and what our expectations would be, as well as physical abilities or lack of. One particular site we were interested in had a singular Rainbow Eucalyptus tree. John informed us that there was a much better location with many more of these trees, but would take us wherever we wished to go instead. We followed his suggestion and could not have been more pleased. John really was a great guide. He took us to some locations we hadn't really thought about, but we were more than happy when we got to them.

    Overall, my family and I were very impressed with how the tour went. Fyi - The tour pays for a lot of the entry fees to some parks as well as fund a certain amount of money towards a lunch. You are not going to see everything during a tour but guides like John will take you to as many spots possible to get your money's worth and John makes as a great photographer.

    Our guide Shawna took us on the Road to Hana tour and I strongly recommend taking this one. We had two children (10 and 13) and two adults on the trip.

    Shawna took us to hidden spots (waterfalls, bamboo forest, secluded beaches) that were perfect for us. But like they say, it’s the journey, not the destination. Just riding passenger in the car, taking in the sights and listening to Shawna’s zen music playlist is worth every penny you saved for this trip.

    A perfect mix of excitement and relaxation! And a huge rainbow at the end to cap it off. Thanks Shawna. Stay Gold.

    I did the Road to Hana with Mike in September of 2021. Couldn't imagine doing it with another guide. Mike is very knowledgeable about Hana and Maui in general. He was able to provide great hiking and food recommendations for our other days in Maui. Mike customized our tour based on what we wanted to do. We avoided some of the more crowded touristy areas in favor of some hidden gems, including waterfalls, rope swings, and cliff jumps, which was especially nice during the pandemic. The car was really nice and they provided snacks and drinks for us, as well as towels. We had lunch at a cafe in the rainforest that had some of the best food we had in Hawaii! Mike took us to several beaches at the end of the tour in search of sea turtles, which we were able to find.

    In addition to the Hana tour, we were able to rent a car through Mike and drive to Haleakala to see the sunset. Amazing! Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing Hana.

    This was our first time to Hawaii (went with my husband). We found these guys through our rental car company and decided to book last second cause our whale watching tour fell through last minute. I am SOOO GLAD WE DID! I had no idea black and red sand beaches even existed! Our tour guides were awesome. They brought these chocolate macadamia nut things to snack on. It's like they knew I was pregnant or something (I ate them all but kept blaming it on my poor husband haha!) My pregnancy has brought with it a lot of sickness with it during the 2nd trimester. Of course it kicked in mid tour. Mike our tour guide was so understanding and ended up adjusting the rest of the tour to more easy going hikes, activities, etc. It was still so worth it. My husband told me afterwords, "it feels like we're dating again." That warmed my heart so much. We had an amazing dating experience and this tour definitely rekindled some of that.

    I'm starting to turn this review into more of a personal mommy blog so time to wrap it up... Thank you again! You guys were wonderful and I've already convinced 2 couples to sign up when they're out visiting next March. Mahalo!

    Aloha!

    I was recommended by a friend to take a tour from Experience Maui as they claim their trip to Hana with them was one of the best days of their life. I am not a “tour” person so I was hesitant but I am SO happy I listened!

    It didn’t feel like being on a “tour” at all. Mike instantly felt like one of our crew. He picked us up from the Grand Wailea in a brand new Navigator and carefully chauffeured us all the way! It was a completely private tour, just me and my travel mates. He even had treats for us in the car and came equipped with floaties as requested! We made many stops to check out the cute markets along the way and visit secret spots only a local would know of. Once we made it to Hana we were brought to the most beautiful black sand beach, lava tubes and then hamoa (sp?) beach which was breathtaking. Mike brought us the “back way” home which isn’t allowed in normal rental cars. It was STUNNING. Untouched mountain side with coastal views the entire drive. Just wow. It was so awesome that we got to explore hidden gems we would have never found on our own.

    Mike feels like part of the crew now. He was such a pleasure all day. We had SO much fun!!!

    I never leave reviews but this was an experience I will never forget. I highly recommend Experience Maui to anyone looking to tap into a more authentic local experience, in style and in good company.

    Enjoy your trip! You will not regret it!

    Tips: bring cash as many vendors do not accept cards.
    Bring a swim suit (or two), a change of clothes and a sweater or jacket as it got a but chilly at night on journey home. Stop at “coconut glens” on the way for the BEST vegan icecream. Check out the black sand beach for sure and the best food we found was the Thai restaurant in the tiny town of Hana.

    When we told friends we were going to Maui the first thing we heard was you need to do the road to Hana. After reviewing the Cruise ship offerings we continued to look until we found this and the cost to for a private tour was only slightly more than to be with a group of strangers. Typically my first choice would have been to rent a car and go on our own but in the end we couldn't have been more happy with our choice. Instead of having to focus on the road and having to find every turn off we wanted to see I was just able to enjoy the ride. Our guide Caitlin was very knowledgeable of the area and made sure we made all of the stops most of the tours mention and we heard about but the best thing was the we did our at our pace and could spend more time at some location and a little less at others. This allowed my wife time to look for shells and sea glass at the red and black sand beaches.

    We also truly enjoyed a couple of stops that aren't part of the typical tour that we requested like finding items from local artists at the I Love Haha Art Boutique or enjoying a truly unique selection of exotic fruits at the Lauima Farm fruit stand.

    We completely enjoyed our day and Caitlin's knowledge of the area quickly made us realize we would have no regrets about our choice. Now when others tell us they're going to Maui we tell them you need to see the road to Hana with Experience Hawaii Tours.

    From UK so was advised against driving the road to Hana due to the winding road. So glad we booked this trips as I got to enjoy the views rather then focusing on driving. Alika was fantastic guide picked us up at the meet point in lovely spacious car that had drinks, snacks and towels ready for us to use. He made sure to cater the trip to our needs I love water so made sure to go for swim in water falls and beach, my mum has difficulty walking showed her farmers market and food trucks plus parked close to where we wanted to go. We bought banana bread from stall Alika recommended and it was delicious. Definitely recommend the trip Perfect if you want to choose your own itinerary and Alika passes on his knowledge of the Hawaiian history.
