This is a good way to see the Road to Hana, you can just sit back and enjoy the beautiful views. It is about 11 hours but well worth it. The rain forrest is impressive. The only reason I didn't give it "Excellent," is that I was a little disappointed in the professionalism of the driver. Too much talk that wasn't about the tour, singing to some music I didn't care for, a little crude.

Good Afternoon, Thank you for choosing Valley Isle Excursions for your Road to Hana tour and taking the time to write a review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the rainforest and the beautiful view along the way. However, I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your tour guide. Our guides go through extensive training on driving and history of the Island as well as a training course on professionalism. If you have the time please contact our office at 808-871-5224 or email me at sales@tourmaui.com. I would like the name of the driver so we can speak with him to help address these issues. Thank you, Autumn Director of Sales

I booked this tour a year ago before our trip was cancelled due to COVID. The company was very flexible, rescheduling twice without an additional fee. From a customer service standpoint I would give them more than 5 stars if I could. As far as food goes, breakfast was at the Mill House and was good for us since we don't need anything heavy in the morning, but if you need a heavy breakfast you may want to bring something additional since it's only fruit and pastries. Lunch was subpar for me - I ordered the chicken Caesar salad and the chicken was kind of sketchy so I ended up eating lettuce. Anyone who ordered the turkey sandwich seemed happy though so would recommend choosing a different option than the salad. But we stopped at places in the morning and afternoon for banana bread and ice cream, so it more than made up for that. For the tour - We had Glenn as our guide and he is just full of stories and legends and all sorts of information. I learned so much about Hawaiian culture just from listening to him. He is a safe driver which is a MUST for this road - I have to say while on the road I have never been happier to not be driving. I would recommend to anyone to book a tour rather than try to navigate yourself. If you get a good tour guide like Glenn he knew exactly the best places to stop but was willing to accommodate any differences in interests or special requests. We stopped at the rainbow trees, multiple waterfalls, state parks etc. There are opportunities to swim if you would like but we opted not to.

Good Afternoon, Thank you for choosing Valley Isle Excursions for your Road to Hana tour and leaving such a great review. With COVID bringing so many changes that are out of our control the least we can do is try to accommodate any cancellations and reschedules without any extra fees to our customers. The Mill House is a new location for our continental breakfast and they also prepare our lunches. We keep the breakfast light which is recommended before hitting the 618 switchback turns. Due to COVID we had to change our lunch menu as we were no longer able to offer our buffet style lunch. I will pass along your concerns with the chicken salad to upper management and the Mill House. Glenn is a wonderful guide. He is supper patient and very knowledgeable as well. I will pass along your kind words to him to. Again thank you for your wonder review and we hope to see you again in the future. Thank you, Autumn Director of Sales

Our family's Road to Hana day trip (3/31) was absolutely fantastic! Our party of 7 was treated to a personal tour by Glenn because of Covid size restrictions. Cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our day. Glenn was a wealth of knowledge, teaching us all about and showing us the island's different vegetation, taking us to all of the very best stops for banana bread, shaved ice, and island trinkets; not to mention, stopping so we could all get the most terrific snapshots of the breath-taking ocean views, waterfalls, and black sand beaches. My husband and I drove the Road to Hana ourselves many years ago on our honeymoon and this experience was so much better because we were able to sit back, relax, and had complete trust in Glenn's guidance. Our teenagers who thought they might get bored on such a "long car ride" were engaged the entire day. It may have helped a little that we saw Leonardo DiCaprio as we were leaving the Black Sand beach! This excursion will not soon be forgotten. Thanks again Glenn for a fabulous tour!!!!!!!!

We were a group of 9 and Travis gave us a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Born and raised in Hana, he knew every twist and turn of that road. He quickly made us feel like ohana (family) and introduced us to many of his ohana along the way. Our kids haven't stopped talking about the day in the waterfalls, on the black sand beach, or learning the history of the island as we drove along the famous road. He taught us about the plants, state tree, music, and got to know us and our kids along the way. You will NOT be disappointed if you spend a day with Travis and the Valley Isle tour.

My girlfriend and I did the tour on 2/28/21. Travis was awesome!!! He had great humor and knowledge that made the Road to Hana adventure one to remember. What made it even better was that Travis was born and raised in Hana. If you ever come to Maui make sure to do the tour and request Travis. You won't regret it.
