Nick was a wonderful private tour guide, very knowledgeable and flexible in creating a custom tour for us. The rainforest was so lush and beautiful ! We visited Rice Park with an elevation of 2800 ft so the views are great and it was very peaceful. We had a short visit in Historic Makawao Town with it's rustic boutique shops to include "The Maui Cookie Lady" and lastly we finished our tour off with another locals favorite Maui shave Ice ! Thank you for a great day ! On a Sad note. .This was the day before the tragic West Maui Wildfires and our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Maui and we will donate to the Maui Strong Fund.
