This activity provides an unmatched personal, interactive experience with the Island. There are so many pockets of beauty hidden throughout Maui, and this tour allows you the unique opportunity to experience them in intimate and respectful way. The passion and admiration the guide has for the island and its people is infectious. One walks away from this experience with a new reverence for Maui, it’s culture, and it’s history. - 5 Adults
