Our guides were super knowledgeable about the area and gave some interesting new perspectives on the island of Maui. It was fun to see how a traditional taro patch works and was rewarding to participate in restoring some of the land. Would recommend to a friend who wants to see below the modern veneer of Hawaii and catch a glimpse of the historical roots and true nature of the land.
