Going hiking with Charlie was one of the highlights of our trip. We hiked the bamboo forest, climbed waterfalls, jumped off into amazing pools and had a great lunch in town afterwards. Having lived here for 26 years, Charlie knows his way around and where to go to avoid the crowded tourist spots. His knowledge about the island, it’s history, and the wildlife of Maui was incredible. If you’re looking for an off the beaten path adventure that will create lasting memories, this is the place to go. Our family will be return customers of Charlie’s for years to come. He’s the man!

Let me start out by saying that I highly recommend Blue Soul Maui and Charlie!! We were in Maui last week and did 3 different tours with Charlie. The first one was a drive up to the top of the Haleakala crater and we hiked when we got to the top. It’s so beautiful and I highly recommend it. Charlie is an excellent driver and so personable and knowledgeable. The second tour was the Road to Hana drive with Charlie. He stopped along the way and showed us so many amazing things-the Bamboo Forest, many different beautiful beaches, gorgeous waterfalls, beautiful scenery, etc. We also bought yummy banana bread and then stopped and had lunch at a local place. Charlie shared his knowledge of all things local and it was very interesting. We never would have made this drive without him, as the road is pretty insane! The third tour was for snorkeling and we went out in an outrigger canoe, which was very cool. One of his local guides, Vene, went with us, too, along with Charlie. Vene shared Hawaiian chants and sayings and shared local customs as they took us out. We saw sea turtles and lots of pretty fish and coral. It was a fun experience and Vene was great! Charlie actually became part of our daily conversations while we were in Maui and we thoroughly enjoyed his company and his tours!

My husband and I booked a Road to Hana tour for our honeymoon. Our tour guide, Charlie was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and taught us a ton about the Hawaiian islands and the history behind it all. We started off the morning with a bamboo hike, which brought us to a beautiful waterfall. The hike was really beautiful and not too difficult, but make sure to wear sneakers. We also stopped at the black sand beach on our way to Hana and swam in the ocean. The views there were gorgeous. Stopped at Braddah Hutts for lunch which was unreal. Get the mahi mahi and the pork ribs. Both were delicious. The town of Hana was super cool. Views were beautiful. On our way back, Charlie stopped at a few other waterfalls and we also stopped at a nice coffee spot next to a local shop with some cute gifts, everything in there made locally. Highly recommend this company and this tour. Charlie was super personable and accommodating.

We booked a road to hana tour, even tho every1 told us we could do it ourselves. And let me tell you, BEST DECISION EVER. From the moment we introduced ourselves to Vene, our tour guide, we knew it was going to be the best day ever. Little did we know how amazing it was going to be. Vene filled our drive with such beautiful history and his life. I wouldn't have wanted to learn about Hawaii's history any other way. He taught us about so much of the culture. Having him drive us not only ensured seeing everything worth seeing, but I knew having a local would ensure our respect of the land and the people. I would have NEVER done any of the hikes if it wasn't for him. He made us feel so comfortable and safe, that I would have followed him anywhere he led us. And we did. He taught us to respect the land and the ancestors. He showed us the natural beauty of Maui. His love for the island, the people and family was so infectious. My heart is so full from this experience and my eyes tear just thinking of the memories. The tour was the ABSOLUTE BEST TOUR I have ever taken. And I highly recommend to EVERYONE who visits Maui to take any one of their tours, but especially Road to Hana. Yes, you can easily do it without a guide. But Vene makes this tour so special, beyond words can describe. Thank you to Blue Soul Tours and Vene for giving us such a special gift. Thank you, our island brother!

We found about Blue Soul through someone we know that did a Hana tour with them. My wife and I wanted to do the road to Hana (with our 2 kids 16 and 13) and we knew we didnt want to do this ourselves. And man we are glad we called them. The summer of 2021 has inundated the islands with tourists (like us) and the road to Hana has been especially hard hit. We knew the local residents are tired of seeing tourists, and we thought by hiring someone local we could see more, and also be guided on how to be most respectful of the residents, and most importantly, to avoid doing anything stupid. We were blessed to meet our guide (on 8/5/21) , Vene, who is hands down one of the coolest, and most bad ass dudes I have ever met. He spent 11 hours with us, driving us out to Hana on the north side and back from Hana on the south side. (Most rental car companies will warn you that must turn around after Hana and not travel the south side of the island since its treacherous and unpaved in sections, and that was another advantage of hiring a local guide, some of the views on the south side were absolutely stunning). He hiked with us, he jumped off cliffs with us (he jumped off ones way higher than we did, much to the delight of the crowd), he taught us about local mythology, beliefs, customs, his lineage, the local landscape. He made sure we tried as much local food as possible. He taught us about fish farming, sustainability, and even the finer points of racing and sailing canoes. He is even making a few cameos in upcoming films that we are looking forward to seeing. He was also very generous with his tips and knowledge to other random tourists that seemed lost or unsure, even though they werent in our tour. We saw soooooo much on the tour and there is no way we would have known where to go and what to do without him. He snapped a million family photos (at his insistence not ours) at all the coolest spots and these pictures will provide a lifetime of memories. And most importantly he did all the driving and got us to Hana and back in one piece! I cant recommend Blue Soul enough, thanks for making our vacation something we will always remember and thanks to Vene for teaching us to "Hang Loose". When we come back to Maui they will be our first call.
