For those who want to travel all the way to Hana and experience much of this famous highway, this is your adventure. Travel along the more famous northern route to Hana Town and return back over the same road. Experience Maui’s verdant rainforest, swim at a rare black sand beach, and enjoy numerous cascading waterfalls. Highlights include numerous waterfalls, lunch in or near Hana town, Ke’anae Village, green sea turtles at Ho’okipa, and a rare black sand beach.
This adventure does not include the Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools and the red sand beach at Kaihalulu. The Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools is located within Haleakala National Park and we do not have a permit to enter the park. Tour companies are also not allowed to take anyone into the park, even if the guests have their own pass.
In addition, the trail to the red sand beach in Hana is dangerous and crosses private property. Hana residents have asked tour companies to not take visitors here and we have respected their wishes. As an alternative, we stop at Koki Beach, where there is gorgeous red sand and picturesque views for the option of eating lunch by the sea.
All are optional (weather permitting) and customized to your preferences.

I was a little reluctant to schedule this guided jeep tour at first. I thought my family may be better served renting a jeep on our own and taking the “Road to Hana” trip on our own at our own leisure. What I found out was that I made a great choice! Not only did I enjoy the 9 hour guided Hana trip, my whole family (including my wife and both college age sons) enjoyed the trip as well! From the time our guide picked us up at our Kaanapali condo to the time he dropped us off. WE HAD A BLAST! Marcus is a guy that knows how to relate to people. He knew when to ask us questions, when to guide, when to push us a little and when to just sit back, relax, be quiet and just enjoy the view. We will definitely tell our friends and family to look you up!
