We're part time Maui residents and received two gift certificates of the East Maui Waterfalls and Rainforest hike from our employer. We probably never would have gone on this adventure had we not had the gift certificates, and what a loss that would have been. The experience was great from start to finish. Aaron was our guide and he was awesome. We learned more about Hawaiian culture and nature in a few hours than we'd learned in years. My kids forgot towels and water shoes - no worries for Aaron - he stopped at the Hike Maui office on the way and had the kids fitted with shoes and towels in no time. It really helped them enjoy the experience. (Note - remember to bring towels, hat and water shoes, with maybe a dry pair for hiking). Aaron shared passion fruits, avocado and bananas right from the trees, along with stories, history and legends of the islands. Our group of 12 included Japanese, Canadians, New Yorkers, Russians and Israelis. What a varied bunch, but by the end of the day, we were all friends and Aaron had plenty of hugs to go around. Some might find the rates a bit on the high side, but even if it wouldn't have been a gift, I felt that I would have gotten my money's worth from the day and now I'm anxious to try the Crater hike. Mahalo Aaron! Good luck to you.
