      The only way to tour the Road to Hana!
      We were so happy to have found this tour company, which we used for a Halfway to Hana tour. My family and I did not want the responsibility of navigating the road on our own so we worked with Susan to book this 7 hour experience. Chris met us at the Target by the airport and had a large comfortable minivan that was great for our journey. We made 7-8 stops (it would have been 1-2 more but the heavens opened at the end of our day) and each one showcased amazing views, waterfalls, foliage and lava caves. We opted to bring our own lunch but they offer a prepaid lunch as well. They took the stress out of the day for all of us and were prepared for any issues such as rain, carsickness, etc. Highly recommend!

      Road to Hana Fun
      Last Saturday my friend and I took a private tour with Awapuhi Adventures. We wanted to be finished by 2:30, so we did Halfway to Hana. A very lovely young man was our guide and driver. Car was clean and well-supplied with water, ice, etc. Our guide's name was Chris. He was great! We saw gorgeous beaches and coastlines, beautiful waterfalls, heard lots of stories about Hawaiian folklore and beliefs, learned names and origins of trees, plants, flowers, etc. Chris was a font of information. He read our preferences quickly, took us to appropriate places, got us local banana bread, and we had a wonderful lunch with a little bit of shopping afterward. We were picked up on time and returned by 2:30. It was great. Highly recommend Awapuhi Adventujres and will use them again next time I'm in Maui.

      Road to Hana private tour
      Our Road to Hana tour with Chris was wonderful! He was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He has an amazing historical background of Maui and the road to Hana which he shared with us. He was patient and attentive to our requests for stops and time spent at sites. He went above and beyond for us. I would highly recommend Awapuhi Adventures if you want a memorable experience for Maui and the Road to Hana tours!

      We had a wonderful time on our Road to Hana Adventure. We saw spectacular scenery. We learned so much about the area. Chris was amazing and so attentive to our needs. We felt safe the entire time on a narrow and winding road. We are so glad we had the opportunity to take this adventure.

      Unforgettable
      If I could give a 6 out of 5 stars I would. Booking this trip was the best decision we have made. Chris was an amazing tour guide for the full Road to Hana trip. He is very intelligent, patient, and friendly. Chris went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience. With the mix good weather and Chris' site and nature expertise, we were able to see and learn things I know we would have missed out on if we were to have navigated this trip ourselves. Thank you Chris and Awapuhi Adventures!

      Personalized once in a lifetime experience
      Matt was the best tour guide. Very knowledgeable and very personable. I can see why he was always recommended on the reviews I read prior to my trip. He went above and beyond and great representation of everything their company stands for. I would definitely book them again for another private tour of everything else we didn’t get a chance to see. And Susan definitely answered all my questions prior to the trip and made sure all my request were passed on without a glitch. Loved my Maui experience and can’t wait to use them again

      Half Day to Hana in Maui
      This was an excellent adventure. Our guide Chris was perfect. He knew so much about the island and the geography of the area. It was exactly what we expected and worth the price of the personal guide. The Road to Hana was amazing and we were able to stop along the way and take photos and reflect on the beauty of Maui. I would recommend this highly, especially to those that might now want to take the full day road trip. The timing of approximately half a day worked well. Thank you Chris and Susan for making our day in Maui fabulous!

      Perfect for us!
      While visiting Maui, we wanted to see the road to Hana, but felt that the 12 hour time commitment of most tours would be overwhelming. When I found this "Halfway to Hana" opportunity, it sounded great. We got all the highlights we hoped to see--sea turtles, black sand beach, waterfalls, some hiking, bamboo forest, and that delicious banana bread! Our guide, Daniel, was energetic, enthusiastic and made sure to find out what we wanted out of our trip and delivered perfectly!

      Fantastic Road to Hana Tour
      Our Road to Hana tour with Chris was AMAZING!!! My boyfriend and I had high hopes for the experience and Chris knocked it out of the park! He gave us a whole day that was way better than we ever could have hoped for. We got to see so much that we never would have on our own. Everything was breathtaking! Chris' knowledge of Maui, from the culture to wildlife to plant life and everything in between, added to our truly wonderful experience. Being able to sit back and not worry about the drive in a private setting instead of in a group with others was beyond worth it!!!! We saw so many waterfalls, black sand beaches, a bamboo forest, sea turtles, ate some of the best local fish for lunch, and the list goes on. This tour is one we will never forget and one that we can't recommend enough!!!

      Maui introduction and exploration
      My wife and I truly enjoyed our journey on the Halfway to Hana tour. Matt was our driver and tour guide. Truly glad we did not try and drive ourselves; thus risking a divorce as the Road is curvy and narrow and ample opportunity for many suggestions on how my driving was!😉 Susan was friendly and kept things organized for our trip. Matt is knowledgeable about the History of the island and a lot of its vegetation all the while handling the road masterfully. I tend to get motion sickness thus my concern for traveling with a large crowd. I did not feel uncomfortable at all! This private tour was perfect for us. Highly recommend this trip on your trip agenda!

    we wanted a custom tour for the road to hana because we had some specific requests for our needs. we are so glad we found Awapuhi Adventures and have Matt as our tour guide.

    Matt is a personable, easy-to-talk-to guide that really knows his stuff. we had so many questions about the area and he just answered them with one interesting fact bit after another. He is funny and he appreciates if you are funny too, which makes for a great day, especially considering we spent the whole day with him. We looked back and there were so many moments where Matt would take some candid photos of us or would prompt us to take a photo of our family. we would not have stopped for a photo if Matt did not remind us. It is like having a professional photographer follow you the whole day! we were spoiled! he took a great panoramic photo of us.

    an important point. driving on the road to hana is quite treacherous and with Matt, we felt 100# safe with his driving the windy roads.

    we stopped by numerous sites (red sand beach; black sand beach; and many other sites at Hana—some famous some obscure. i have been at quite a few custom tours over the years (eg costa rica, puerto rico). this one with Matt was by far the most fun and the most interesting.

    Aloha William! It was truly a pleasure touring your family. All of us at Awapuhi Adventures have a genuine passion for providing peak experiences. I personally train all of my guides and take them without guests on tours. If I dont see in them what in takes to be a outstanding Adventure Guide, they dont make the cut ;) I'am very pleased to see how happy you & yours were with your tour! Mahalo, Matt

    If you are between this tour and a group tour, please do this!!! Let me start off by saying that our tour guide, Chris made this experience and felt more like a friend. There is nothing worse then having a boring, no personality tour guide. He had great things to say about this company and truly cares and loves what he does. He was down to earth, experienced, full of history and knowledge and a great, safe driver. You would not get this type of expierence with a group tour and it was worth every penny. We saw so many beautiful things and learned so much. We went at our own pace and made some amazing stops. We got a lot of rain and never felt slighted with the experience (we could not do some hiking with the down pour). My husband and I are celebrating our honeymoon and couldn’t think of a better way to start our vacation. We will remember this forever and you will too! Do it-you will not regret it!!!

    Chris, our guide, was the perfect companion for our tour. Our group included a range of ages from young children to older grandparents so we were a little concerned about finding the right balance of stops / activities for everyone. Chris found a happy medium, suggested the rights stops, and provided all the information we needed. If you're interested in the flora of Maui, Chris is the perfect guide and his knowledge of the plants along the route is extensive. We booked somewhat last minute and had to make a last minute change, which was all accommodated with professionalism and a smile. The entire experience from booking through to the end of the tour was easy, which is all you can ask for on vacation.

    Our tour to Hana with Matt exceeded our expectations in so many ways. His deep knowledge of the island history, culture, plant life and geology gave us great insight into the wonders of Maui.

    It was also very calming with Matt at the wheel, navigating the narrow roads and blind corners, allowing us take in all the sights along the way.

    We trekked the bamboo forest, saw several water falls, visited the black sand beach and stopped at a few other hidden gems that likely are not in the guide books. We took a break for a fresh, tasty lunch at a Hana farm on our way back. Thank you Matt for an amazing day and many many wonderful memories!

    My mom and I came out to Maui for the first time right in the middle of Covid, which made it difficult to do some of the things we had planned too. Matt took the time to chat with me and arrange a road to Hana tour at a reduced price solely because we had mentioned really wanting to do that during our time here. Unfortunately due to someone in my group getting sick, we had to cancel last minute. He was totally understanding and was so accommodating in the first place I had to leave a positive review. Please support his company, he is so kind and you won’t regret it! Can’t wait to hopefully do a tour with him in the future

    Me and my wife did this Road to Hana tour on 9/3 and were fortunate enough to get owner of the company Matt. Matt was knowledgeable, accommodating, entertaining, and all around wonderful tour guide. It is clear that he loves his job and it shows in the amazing tour he provided. He took us in lava tubes, waterfalls, beaches, and so much more. Mike even will act as your personal photographer during the tour (what a guy!!!). Even after the trip Matt was happy to respond to our questions about the island. Overall this was a 5 plus star experience that I would recommend to anyone who is takes a trip to the beautiful island of Maui. I would recommend bringing a few hundred dollars on the trip for food and souvenirs.

    We actually did a Halfway to Hana tour, which was perfect for us, a mom and 2 kids ages 9 and 11. Our guide was Daniel, who was so friendly and knowledgeable. We hit a little rain on the way up, and ended up stopping at those sites on the way back, once things cleared up. My kids loved the black sand beach the most, while I loved the lava field the best. I have to make special mention that Daniel consistently took the utmost care to ensure the safety of my children, which made me feel so grateful as a parent. BOOK THIS TOUR, it’s great!

    Chris was an excellent guide for the private Road to Hana tour for my son and his two friends who were on college spring break. Chris tailored the day for them and made it epic in every way. They came home raving about their adventures, felt that Chris was an informative guide, and were happy that they learned a lot about Hawaii and its history. A good time was had by all. We have booked multiple trips with Awapuhi Adventures, for a range of ages and activity levels, and they have always been fantastic. Fun fact, I am writing this review because I paid for their excursion--but all three young men came back and made me promise that I would leave great feedback!

    Our family visited beautiful Maui for the 3rd time but this was our first time completely the entire Road to Hana. Susan from Awapuhi Adventures communicated with us in advance to help customize our trip. Due to personal choice, we followed Matt in our car and we appreciated his flexibility and ensuring my husband felt comfortable with the tight navigations. Matt was calm, caring and knowledgeable about the historical/geographical aspects of the island. We appreciated that. Having a Guide permits everyone to relax without worrying about missing an important mile marker. Maui's changing landscape is mesmerizing and my personal highlight was jumping into an ocean tidal pool. Matt took some great family pics so this vacation, everyone is in the shots! Thank you Awapuhi Adventures for the positive mana. I recommend this to anyone visiting Maui. Taz and Family

    Matt curated a wonderful private tour for me. As a solo female traveler who was unfamiliar with Maui, I wanted a local guide who knew all the stops and Matt was very kind and patient. Highlights from the tour were the black sand beach and lava tube tunnel at Wainapanapa Park and the Waioka coastal trail hike -- the latter was very secluded and the views were breathtaking!

    The banana bead stop was good but the Huli Huli chicken near Koki beach park takes the cake for one of the most satisfying meals I had during the trip! I felt super safe at all times and had a great experience. Susan also did a wonderful job with all the pre-departure and logistical coordination.

    Also ended up booking another private tour to see sunset at Haleakala Crater with Matt and the views were absolutely breathtaking! Would recommend Awapuhi adventures in a heartbeat! Can't wait to go back again with my family :) Thanks again to Matt and Susan for showing me a grand time on Maui!
