I was very happy with this tour choice. It was the right amount of time for us as it is not an entire day one. The views up in the mountain from the crate are amazing. The tour finishes it up in Lao Valley which is a nature paradise. Our tour guy was amazing. We learned a lot about the Hawaii history and the Maui situation from him.


We had wonderful experience and company was great . People are nice and worth the visit. People are nice and cooperative. Beautiful weather and very soothing experience.


We enjoyed the hotel pickup and return Polynesian Adventures provided. We had a knowledgeable and friendly guide take us to many scenic areas of Maui. The trip was a good amount of time, not too long or too short. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the experience! Driver was late to pick up but we received notification that he was running late. Great communication.


Seeing the crater with all the colors and the views. The History the legends. How Maui was created from two different volcanoes that eventually connected to become the island we know today.


Canceled by tour provider and it was perfect weather don’t book they will just cancel on you rent fa car and drive the island


Carly was an amazing driver. Learned a lot about the history, culture and language of Hawaii. Really enjoyed our trip.


Carly was amazing and we learned so much about Maui. The bus was comfortable and the destinations were interesting


We really enjoyed our tour with Uncle Mitch. We were a small group of eight so had a lot of chances to ask questions and learn about Maui and the sights we were visiting. The only negative was being dropped off at the mall for lunch. A local restaurant or food truck would have been better but not a dying mall.


Carly was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The trip to the top of the volcano and state park was wonderful. Thanks for the breathing tips.


This was a great tour! Loved the information about the island and culture on the way. It made the drive to the crater go much quicker.
