We lead you on private tours of maui that awaken the senses, connect you to Maui and create memories that last a lifetime. Our adventurous hikes take you to private waterfalls, secluded beaches and on the famous road to hana. The most common phrase we keep hearing on our tours... "this was the highlight of our trip to Maui." Our love of Maui is contagious!! Book a trip with Epic Maui Hikes and find out why :) Established in 2015. Epic Maui Hikes started in the spring of 2015 by 2 best friends who have a love of adventure and an obsession with Maui. We love sharing what we feel with our friends and family and it naturally spread to our clients. We started this business hoping to share with tourists just how fun and adventurous they could be while still being safe. We realized that these adventurous tours and hikes that we offer are doing much more than that. We reconnect people with nature, to themselves, to their family and friends, to joy :)

We had one of the best experience with Jonathan on our hiking tour on Road to Hana. We did quite a few well known spots like Black sands beach and waterfalls in the way, as well a few secret off-road hiking to waterfalls as well as to new black sands beach which was very adventurous. I really loved how Jonathan pushed us to try new experiences and overcome our fears. He was very friendly and knowledgeable with very good driving skills.

I would recommend him 10/10 times for anyone looking an adventurous hiking tour of Road to Hana.

OMG…there are no words! We had the greatest experience imaginable today with Jonathan!!! Not only is he knowledgeable, but he’s hilarious and very conversational…so easy to connect with. Believe me, this excursion was way out of our wheelhouse, but Jonathan made us feel so at ease, the entire trip was so enjoyable!!! The waterfalls were beyond, and my kids had so much jumping off the rope swing into the falls pool…it was amazing. The bamboo forest will unlike anything we’ve ever seen. If you want a tour that’s not cookie-cutter, but unique to you, Jonathan is your guy! Mahalo for all the hospitality, Jonathan!!!

My tour experience with Johnathon was absolutely amazing. He was great at showing the the beauty of the island. The hike to the waterfall was absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend doing this tour with Johnathon. He was very patient and a blast to have as tour guide. I can’t wait to return and book another tour. This was absolutely a great experience.

Jonathan was our guide for road to hana private tour. He is very friendly, fun to talk to and has amazing driving skills. He had great suggestions for us and curated the tour to accommodate the stops we wanted to make on the way. Banana bread and coconut icecream were the cherry on the top. He took us on beginner to intermediate level hikes which ended at either a hidden waterfall or a beach. It was challenging yet thrilling . Love it.

My husband and I took two tours with Epic Maui Hikes- Both guides we had were extremely nice and friendly, but there were a couple of things that I feel other tripadvisor users should know before booking:
My biggest problem was with the transportation for the Haleakala sunset hike. Our guide was 45 minutes late (he was stuck in traffic, which stinks because then we didn't have much time on top of Haleakala). The vehicle he picked us up in was a really old open air jeep. He told me to climb in the back, and when I got there I found there was no seatbelt. I was very uncomfortable with this, and I really considered not taking the tour. I don't think it is fair that I had to choose between compromising my safety or going on a tour I was looking forward to. Other than this, our tour was good, and our guide very attentive.
Our other tour was the Bamboo Forest hike. We had a great day, although the water was high and it was definitely more difficult than a "mild to moderate" hike. The one thing I didn't like about this tour was that everything on their website says their tours are private that can be tailored to what you want to do. Imagine our surprise when we picked up two more people (with no change in price from the private tour described on the website). The issue with this was that was one of the other two on the tour could not swim and didn't want to do anything that involved swimming, and we were only interested in the tour for the waterfall jumps, which you have to swim to get to. The girl who couldn't swim ended up standing in the jungle by herself for a half hour while we finished up the tour. I think they should really communicate if you are not going to be on a private tour. Also, future tours would benefit from the guide carrying a dry bag for waters and bug spray, as well as a cloth in a waterproof bag for the gopro (a lot of our pictures had water dots on it). Again, we really liked our guides, but these are things that I think need to be addressed by the company.

Aloha! I took your review very seriously, and since then, all guides are required to drive our safe commercially licensed vehicles. The guide you had was let go after reading your review for the Haleakala tour. We have also made private tours and shared tours more clear on our website. We now use a dry bag for waters, bug spray and environmentally safe sunscreen. We appreciate your honesty in your review, as these are all things that helped us grow. If you are ever back out to Maui, we would love to show you an amazing experience, please reach out when you are! Lots of Love and Aloha

Before anything else - Christine was the most incredible, caring and patient guide we could have possibly asked for. We did the Jungle/Waterfall hike, and this hike was, without a doubt, epic.
We were expecting a nice hike and a little swim in a waterfall; we are a family of four, with a mom who is scared of heights and two older kids (23 and 18). With Christine's expertise and energy, we were able to climb not one, but two! waterfalls, and subsequently jump from them. Mom was terrified, but Christine's calm and encouraging manner gave her the courage, after a paralyzing seven minutes at the edge, to finally jump. Christine is awesome!
The hike took us through rivers, scaling rocks (Christine knew exactly how to get up and down them, it ended up being much easier than we expected!), climbing stand-alone ladders, and seeing amazingly beautiful waterfalls from the top, front and very bottom. We walked through bamboo forests and Christine introduced us to flowers that tasted like mushrooms, tomatoes, and radishes.

Overall, the hike wasn't what we were expecting; it blew our expectations away and became, for all four of us, our favorite day of our 10 day vacation in Hawaii. I highly recommend going on the Waterfall/Jungle hike, especially if you've never done a more adventurous hike before - this was our first, and we truly enjoyed every exhilarating second of it.

-- Don't bring phones/electronics (guides have GoPro that records the whole thing!)
-- The whole trip, including driving, took a little over 4 hours
-- Wear shoes that you are prepared to go under water with, and get muddy (we all just wore tennis shoes and washed them after)
-- Bring flip flops to change into after the hike
-- You will get wet

UNBELIEVABLE!!! I cannot say enough about Lorena and this life changing experience she has created. We had a private experience with my parents and my teens. I'm telling everyone I know... this sets you on a path to fully accept what Maui has to offer you.
