Haleakala was simply stunning and so worth the early morning wake up. I wish I could say our tour was the same but if I had my time over, I would choose another company. Our pick up was late, driver talked non stop about his home state (not Hawaii), land taxes, told out of date 'wife' jokes and seemed to... More

The road to Hana had many white-knuckled tourists driving rental cars. We were so glad to be on Bruce's bus and not trying to drive the road to Hana ourselves! Bruce was not only an excellent driver, but he was also very funny and very knowledgeable about Hawaii. Unfortunately the bus we were on developed transmission problems, but the tour... More

We were took the Haleakala, central maui and iao valley tour with Judy as our tour guide. First of all, polyad's description said it picks up at kaanapali at around 7.15. Nope, pick up was at 6.30am. One of the reasons I chose this tour was based on pick up time. If I knew it was this early, would have... More

Rory, thank you for an exciting and incredible tour to Hana. Your knowledge of Maui is bar none the best. Take this tour. You get breakfast, knowledgeable tour guides that stop and see things along the way. A very nice lunch in Hana and wine tasting. Thank you!

Long story short, and due to some mis-communication, our trip to Mt. Haleakala almost didn't happen. My father is disabled and uses a motorized scooter to get around. He can walk with forearm crutches, but not very far. I spoke with Ronnie, the Manager at Polynesian Adventure Tours Maui, and she assured me our bus would have a wheelchair lift.... More

My friend and I took the Polynesian Adventure Tour for Haleakala Sunrise in mid October, 2014. Pickup was on time, the driver negotiated that road, with many hairpin turns, with practiced precision. This is something not to be missed. Absolutely Spectacular!! You will never regret spending the money. The adventure was a "5" for sure, but the tour guide was... More

We highly recommend taking the Road to Hana bus tour around the island of Maui. It's a 12 hour day trip but very informative and beautiful scenery. Be sure to sit on the Driver side of the bus for the best views. Our driver, Bruce, from Texas, was very funny and kept us laughing. If you take any excursion on... More

I really don't like giving bad reviews, but we were just so disappointed with this tour. We were excited to see the famous Haleakala sunrise. This wasn't a cheap tour, and you had to get up at about 2 AM to get picked up and get up the top in time. We stopped at a convenience store to get snacks/water... More

I would love to tell you how our Haleakala Sunrise Tour was, but our bus broke down before we could even get there! I was looking forward to this trip for a long time and was very sad and disappointed that we could not go. The bus driver called to headquarters immediately for a new bus but they stalled and...
