What people are saying about Kahului

We were assigned the best tour guide/driver ever. Luke was so entertaining and informative. He drove with such caution and care but yet managed to narrate non stop, sharing interesting info with us on the sights and attractions. The best tour guide I have ever had in my 60 years of existence, highly recommend to anyone who is coming to Maui for the first time / wants to explore Hana!

Was hesitant after doing the road to Hana and long hikes, but so glad I went!! The hike was good paced and full of knowledge about Maui. Mila was amazing at making sure everyone was comfortable and keeping a good pace we got to visit and extra waterfall! She made sure everyone had all the video, pictures and swimming we wanted before moving on. I couldn’t recommend a better tour.

Great chopper, excellent pilot with complete knowledge of the history of Maui…and breathtaking views in every direction! Mahalo Captain for a world class experience.

Loved this experience! Luke was punctual, professional and knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture, history, agriculture, and more!

Great vehicle. Driver was very accommodating for the days activities.
