Our guide Jay was awesome! He was laid back, funny and even had a cool play list to match the vibe of the trip. He made us feel safe in the winding roads and knew local spots. Communication was excellent prior to the trip with info on what to bring and the vehicle was immaculate upon arrival. The benefit of a private tour with door to door service is deciding which places to stop for photos or swims and at your own pace. We opted for full Hana experience. He gave us guidelines and took us to several local business that have clean restrooms to change. Started trip at Safeway w/ a Starbucks then we headed the east side route vs the west side. Avoiding traffic and crowds. We stopped at Bee farm-local fruit tasting (ex strawberry papaya)-botanical gardens-swam at black sand beaches w/ lava tube- sea turtles-local delicious food trucks- banana bread- several beautiful views of waterfalls even one or two you can swim and take pictures in. Kona ice too! Worth every penny!

What a fabulous trip! The scenery on the road to Hana was absolutely breathtaking! Our guide, Tom, was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. His intimate knowledge of the flora, fauna, history, and culture of Maui and Hawaii greatly enriched our experience! Tom knew so many special sights to stop at and it was a fabulous day! He catered the trip to what we were hoping to see along the way. He went above and beyond, we couldn’t be happier with the experience! Mahalo, Tom!

Our helicopter ride to the rain forest was amazing! The views were spectacular! The helicopters do very well in high winds, so if you’re worried about that, don’t be! Our pilot/guide Rick was also very awesome. He offered to take pictures for us together on our honeymoon and was very knowledgeable about the history and land.

So glad we hired them to drive us! Jay was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He knows how drive the curves safely and knows where to stop- do NOT drive this yourself! Save your marriage!

Very smooth flight, Rick was an excellent pilot and very knowledgeable. Beautiful scenery. Highly recommend Maverick.
