ACTIVITY TIPS

Kevin at Falls

Van tours offer a nice advantage over driving around on your own. Many of the most scenic roads on Maui are rather narrow and winding with bridges that are only one lane wide. An experienced tour guide / driver who knows the road will ensure that everyone in your party gets to enjoy the view. Mini-coaches that these companies use sit higher than a regular rental car and offer superior visibility with oversized windows ... you'll see things looking over the top of the guardrail that you would miss if you were in a rental car. These vehicles are superior to a tour done in a bus (for obvious reasons) or a standard 14 passenger van that is difficult to crawl in and out of.  Another advantage of the smaller vehicle with great visibility; don't be surprised if your guide knows your name by the middle of the tour.

If you love to drive on curvy winding one-lane roads that you've never seen before, you might enjoy the drive to Hana! Go for it! Many people HATE the drive to Hana, but love the ride there. That's when a tour like Valley Isle Excursions is perfect. Their Hana adventure is really first quality ... the food is excellent, the ride comfortable, and the group is small. Ever been on a bus tour where one or two people were holding up a group of 55? That won't happen on smaller tours like this. It's a good choice.

If you want to see a Haleakala Sunrise, don't forget about the downhill bike ride! They'll pick you up and take you to the summit in the middle of the night ... after watching the sunrise you coast 38 miles downhill with only 400 yards of peddling! If one or two people in your party don't want to ride the bike back down, they have a van rider rate. For more information on that, go to our Bike Down a Volcano page.

If you want to watch a Haleakala Sunrise but no one in your party is interested in biking, then the Temptation Tours trip is a good idea. The road to the summit of Haleakala is not as narrow as the road to Hana, but there are hairpin turns ... LOTS of them. And driving it in the middle of the night in the dark can be a challenge. Actually, if you aren't properly rested, driving can be dangerous. Consider going with this tour ... you can rest your eyes on the way up instead of having to prop them open with toothpicks and getting white knuckles from holding the steering wheel too tightly. Temptation Tours are definitely on the pricey side, but they really are the best at what they do. They specialize in small groups and pampered service.

If you wan to see Haleakala but the middle of the night pickup is not your style, Temptation Tours also offers a very comprehensive Haleakala Summit and Lavender Garden tour. This one will really envigorate your senses as you spend an entire day at higher elevations of Maui where the air is incredibly crips. This tour includes an elegantly prepared lunch and wine tasting at Tedeschi Winery.
