Found this company while surfing the web looking for trips on Maui, this was a fantastic accident as the company office are helpful, accommodating and very informative. They actually reserved 2 seats on the coach trip and emailed me all the details without any deposit so we could make an informed decision, also did not push the sale or pressure us to purchase, they actually said that they only wanted us book the trip with them if that was what we wanted . When we rang them back to book the Deluxe Road To Hana trip, they already had all the information and processed the booking in double quick time despite the time difference. On the day of trip we were welcomed by one driver who then chauffered us to the mini bus that was going to be our transport for day. We were greeted by a wonderful young man called DJ who was going to be our personal guide, once we were seated and settled, everyone on the bus introduced themselves to DJ and each other, there were only 7 people on the bus so everyone had a great view and plenty of photo opportunities. We spent the whole day travelling the Road to Hana with plenty of wonderful stops, and some interesting cornering (622 corners) If you get travel sick this is not the trip for you. We had drinks and locally produced snacks provided at every stop including Gold Pineapple, Kula strawberries and locally made Banana bread also a wonderful Hawaiian plate lunch beside a red sand beach, everything was fresh and tasted absolutely wonderful. DJ was very informative, helpful and funny, willing to share personal stories and answer every question no matter what it was. This was our first trip to Maui and Mahalo Tours just made the Road trip a magical experience.

Our party of 8 really enjoyed our time spent with our guide Jamie. The Road to Hana is a awesome experience that needs to be done by anyone who visits the island. There are so many interesting and exciting things to see. Jamie showed and explained so much to us, she made the whole trip around the island a truly amazing experience. Jamie was great with the kids and also navigating the narrow roads. She is a true professional and I highly recommend Mahalo tours and Jamie as your guide. The van was spotless and always had cold drinks and snacks on board when every you needed them.

It was our first time visiting hawaii, and my husband and I are so happy we chose to visit the beautiful island of Maui. So many memories to cherish. We felt so lucky and blessed that we missed the hurricane, and also grateful for being able to go on this tour,especially having Nathan as our tour guide! He is the best and we will not forget him! He did not make us rush seeing the gorgeous views,he made us feel like family. THANK YOU NATHAN, he is an asset of your company. I would recommend your tour to anyone.

We went with tour guide Justin on the Road to Hana and had an incredible time! Justin knew a lot about the area, took us to all the best areas (and areas for photos, he takes amazing photos), and drove very safely-he was clearly from the area. Additionally, he was funny and engaging. The tour itself was incredible, showing some interesting parts of the island aside from the beaches. This tour is a must!

We were so glad not to have driven this road ourselves. First, the road is crazy and a lot of inexperienced drivers is just a recipe for disaster. Our driver Nate is originally from Hana and knew every twist and turn of the road. Second...we would have wasted so much time not knowing where to stop etc. Nate was a great guide and knew the highlights on where to stop. Lastly, the backside of the island. Wow. Just wow. We would not have been able to see it with a rental because the rentals do not allow cars to travel that section because the roads are pretty treacherous and will bottom out. It's a must see.

Anyway 2 thumbs up for this company and our driver Nate. It was a fun packed 12 hours and never did we feel like it dragged on! Oh almost forgot. Nate is the best at pics! Thank you Nate!!
