Great experience! I learned about some of the culture and watched a beautiful (and cold) sunrise. We couldn't imagine being cold in Hawaii, and it happened.

Mel is wonderful and so funny. Thank you. He has a lot of knowledge about thr island and its history. I would book a tour again.


Our tour guide Salesi was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us a great service. the air-conditioning need to be reset to a confortable temperature. was top cold.


Carley was an excellent guide. She is knowledgeable and attentive to her guests. View of crater was just awesome.


Carly was terrific!!!!! She was a deeply involved with the fires that occurred. In Maui and was a very caring person.


First of all our flight confirmation no was messed up. Polynesian Adventure told us we should check in round trip. But these confirmation number did not work. Mind you they gave us two different confirmation numbers and none gave us our return boarding passes and none worked. We had to look for help. After arriving in Maui the Polynesian representative called us and scolded us for not calling them when we arrived. She was very rude. She treated me like a kid. There were no instructions whatsoever to call them. The tour itself was terrible. Many of the supposed stop we were going to go were abandoned. For example, on the trip to Mokawao town where we were supposed to spend an hour there but instead we just passed thru it. The amount we paid to this tour at $529 person feels like a rip off. The only saving grace was our driver.


Sales tour The Road To Hana was very interesting and informative. Felt very grateful that I took this tour. Thank you Salese


Kanela was a great guide and very knowledgeable. Obviously loves his island and showed us the best of it. Nothing was an effort to engage and create a great experience of Maui. Provided options for continuing experiencing more of Maui. Great tour and value. Thoroughly recommend.


Awful! That’s all I can say. We booked on Saturday night. They immediately took the money out of our bank account. I get a call the next morning there a no flights available to Maui on the Wednesday we chose and the tour is only offered on Wednesday. We could change it to the following Wednesday but our vacation would be over by then. Tried to get a refund but there are no refunds. So we are out nearly $1,000. That is insane! I could understand no refund if we were the ones to cancel but the company cancelled not us. Also, don’t take the money out until the trip is confirmed! What a joke! DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR!
