Maui, Hawaii54 contributions28 helpful votes
We met Christian (and Jollene) in Paia for a great morning of hiking and touring. We got lessons on Hawaiian linguistics and history on the drive to our first stop. The bamboo forest was stunning and the waterfalls they hid were a real treasure. We clambered down slippery slopes, through the stream, and over rocks to get to the first and second waterfalls. (My wife is a walker in real life but was concerned about her abilities on the terrain. Christian was patient and helpful so that we were all able to have a good time on the hike together.) Christian did the hike barefoot, but I am glad we had old sneakers to plod through the mud and streams. We swam and swung and then headed back to the road. From there we went a bit further along the Road to Hana, appreciating the undulating road. After a stop for tidal pools and banana bread we headed back. We finished up back in Paia with a nice lunch in town. All in all, a definite highlight of our trip and we had already passed along Christian's contact information before we even left Maui.

Christian and his dog, Jolene led us on an outstanding day trip to Hana. We loved the amazing hikes to waterfalls, the red sand beach and caving. Christian is an excellent tour guide. He confirmed the pick-up time and location in advance, asked permission to bring his adorable dog, arrived on time and led us on an incredible adventure to places we would never have found on our own. We highly recommend!!!

Christian and his wonderful little poodle mix companion Jolene were absolutely amazing tour guides for our day trip along the Road to Hana. They were accommodating for all of the things that my wife and I wanted to see, red sand beach, waterfalls, cliff jumping, picturesque stops, banana bread, all while giving us a fun look at the life and history of Hawaii! He was incredibly friendly and easy going and made us feel comfortable for the entire experience. After having ridden on the road to Hana, I saw many people driving the road themselves and would say if you are a comfortable driver, you could drive it yourself but I would never recommend it over having Christian and Jolene take you as they take away all stress and show you all the stops along the way. There are numerous places Christian took us that my wife and I would never have thought to stop that I am so glad he took us to! I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to enjoy the journey not only the destination!

After a VERY minor scheduling snafu we had a great half day to Hana tour with Christian and his pup. Can you do this tour on your own....yes....but would you have had the same amount of experiences in the condensed time we did, NO WAY. Christian guided us to some great stops, hikes, overlooks, and sea turtles! We had a terrific time and walked away with memories that we will never forget. He pushed us, but not too much, out of our typical comfort zone which made the resultant day even better. Thanks Christian and Epic Experience Maui!

Christian and Jolene were fantastic guides. The best part is they will tailor your trip to what you want at your pace. He’ll show you the off the beaten path spots on the Road to Hana, away from all the crowds. He’s very knowledgeable about the area and the local flora. Very easy going!
