Spent the day on a full circle tour to Hana with Sean. Can’t imagine a better experience. Sean was knowledgeable, entertaining and committed to giving us a great experience. He would prepare us for photo opportunities and stop at just the right spot including waterfalls, swimming holes and the Hawaiian green sea turtles. We had over an hour at a black sand beach. We sampled local food spots all along the trip including fruits, baked goods, huli huli chicken and his root beer float. The vehicle was roomy and exceptionally clean. A wonderful day with unbelievable scenery and a memorable highlight for anyone’s trip to Maui.

Our first point of contact was Sean who advised us the back road to Hana was closed for repairs and that he can rearrange the tours we wanted to take to accommadate what we wanted to see.
Our first tour was with Makana on the Road to Hana & Back with the Pipiwai Trail added. It was an amazing day riding in the Bronco and listening to Mak telling us stories of his Ohana & the history of Hawaii. Yes, we could have done the Road to Hana on our own, but we wanted to hear from a local about what we were experiencing which made the tour much richer.
Our second tour was the Haleakala Sunset Tour with Tom. Tom was great and told us different things about the island including the geological history of the island and the best spot to set up chairs (which he provided) to watch the sunset.
I highly recommend Hawaii by Storm!

Our family encountered this tour on the road to Hana today. The tour guides were so rude, telling people to pull over or they would tail gate them and singing pop songs at water falls and rest stops at the top of their lungs, and obviously making fun of tourists not in their tour.
I wrote yo the company to let them know and this was their reply “ Mahalo for your perspective and feedback. I just got off the phone with the guests on tour today and it was nothing but raving good feedback. These are repeat clients and are booking for next year as well. We have fun on our tours and our drivers connect with the groups really well. Have a blessed day! ”
Meaning - screw me and my experience because I didn’t pay them money. They only care about their tour.
We’ll to be honest with you I would have been embarrassed to be on their tour, their tour drivers were so bored with water falls they needed to be egotistical jerks and sing and be the center of attention instead of enjoying nature.
This was the CEO being this rude to me. Mayakovsky for shoring me your true colors Hawaii by storm.

Aloha Kelly, All situations reported to our office are taken seriously. When I received your email I conducted an investigation by reaching out to the guests who were on tour on the day you mentioned as well as reaching out to the drivers. Upon talking to the guests they ranted and raved about the experience our guides provided for them. Zero issues with the tour whatsoever. As a business owner what would you do? No phone call was ever attempted by you only an email was provided. (Seems odd) When a guest says this is one of the best days they’ve had on vacation and had zero problems with the experience… What else would I say? I will always listen to a person who directly talks to me versus some random email. I will always ask my guests about situations and my drivers when there's a complaint by anyone. Their feedback was nothing but good and thus my response to you. We're committed to providing our guests with the best possible tour experience, as well as operating in a pono and aloha manner towards everyone we encounter along the way, locals, other tour operators and visitors to Maui, even if they aren't our customers (yet). Kelly, we always welcome the opportunity to improve our operation. A reasonable reading of our reviews, here and across the web, will support the view of our exceptionally, helpful, and respectful drivers, as well as our commitment to our community (Did you see the video of our Hawaiian blessing of the business on our social media pages?). So strange that this review comes after over a year of consistent 5-star reviews. I hope your trip goes better and you stop taking it out on a business whose team works hard for their guests and provides memories for years to come. Also you leaving poor reviews across multiple platforms makes it seem like your a competitor on a smear campaign. Our 200+ 5 star reviews show what we live to do and I think the real truth outshines. Aloha!

Amazing experience with an awesome driver. Kaipo was super knowledgeable and gave an awesome tour filled with laughs and memories. The private SUV was super comfortable and we didn’t have to worry about crowds as we went a better route to Hana. So glad we opted for this tour over a bus. We highly recommend! Even further, I am forever grateful for him helping me execute the perfect proposal to my now fiancé. A day we will never forget.

The tour was a 5 star, 10 out 10 thumbs up from the time Kaipo picked us up at our condo to dropping us off when the trip was over. I have been to Hana several times, but this was by far the best experience. Kaipo is the best!!! His knowledge about the island and him sharing the history of Maui was very informative and interesting. He pointed out all the important places to see, views, waterfalls, just over all points of interest of the road to Hana!! He also stopped at points of interest we wanted to take extra time to see. The reverse route was very beneficial and made the day go faster!! We stopped for lunch for Hulu Hulu chicken! It was to die for!! The tenderness and flavor of the chicken was definitely a 10!!! We had taken our own lunch, but so worth every dime spent on the lunch. Kaipo was such a wonderful tour guide. He is such a fun person to be with and he even bought us 2 yummy banana breads!! We most certainly recommend this tour and especially Kaipo. The private tour was a memory we will never forget!! Thank you, Sean, at Maui by Storm and most importantly, Kaipo!!

We loved our trip so much! We spent the day with Kaipo and Sean (9 of us, split into two vehicles). They picked us up from our accommodations in Lahaina and dropped us back off at the end of the day. Kaipo was our guide and presented an insider’s perspective along the way. He was thorough and personable — a very kind and laid back guy. They prefer the ‘reverse route’ — starting where most groups end to avoid much of the tourist traffic and get the bumpiest roads out of the way first. It seemed like a brilliant plan to us. They knew all the best places to stop and did a great job of driving (especially since at least a few of us were convinced we would get car sick… but didn’t). I loved swimming with the kids at Black Sand Beach and the waterfalls. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with these guides and hope the best for them in all their future tours!

We had an awesome time on our tour with Sean! His engaging manner and extensive knowledge of everything Hawaii, make for a top-rated tour guide. He knew just where to stop for fun-filled activities and killer photo-ops. The smooth, clean, and luxurious vehicle certainly enhanced our trip. Overall a grand time was had by all.

If you see Hana any other way you are crazy! This is well worth the $! Sean made a miracle happen last minute to make this tour happen for my partner and I. He got us a nice luxury SUV instead of the big Expedition they normally have which he apologized to us for but to be honest being in their hands on this trip I would have road in anything they had. Charleston was so knowledgeable and fun! He knew when to chat, when to play music for us, and when to let us just be silent and take in the beauty. It was like he had known us for years. We truly felt like he made this was a magical experience for us and look forward to doing it again when we’re back in Maui! Mahalo

Kaipo was great, safe driver. Lots of local sites and highlights, lots of variety (shopping, waterfalls, beaches). Lots of local stories, especially around fishing and diving which was our interest! Knows the Hawaiian language and meaning of words and names. Professional and friendly.
