Tour the HANA coast style; then continue your excursion on the magnificent road beyond Hana with Maui's #1 Luxury Tour Company. Valley Isle Excursions takes you on one of the most breathtaking drives on earth through Maui's tropical rainforest. 617 curves, 54 one lane bridges to Hana, pineapple fields, spectacular cliffs, bamboo jungles, waterfalls, tropical streams and pools, colorful and fragrant island flowers and rainforest vegetation are all to be enjoyed on your way to "Heavenly Hana".

The tour includes pick-up and return to your hotel, continental breakfast, a very nice picnic lunch served on glass plates with metal silverware and a Hawaiian print tablecloth, and complimentary beverage service throughout the day. View waterfalls, the Keanae Peninsula, "Heavenly Hana" Town, and spectacular sea cliffs. This tour makes between 10-12 stops including Wainanapanapa State Park where you can walk around on a black sand beach. The tour also stops for an hour at the Pools of Oheo (also known as the Seven Sacred Pools) where easy hiking trails lead to viewpoints of several waterfalls. This tour goes all the way around the Haleakala side of the island, including the road beyond Hana where the rental car companies do not allow you to drive. This area includes Charles Lindbergh's Gravesite, the majestic gorges near Kaupo, the rugged lava coastline of South Maui, and views of "Upcountry" Maui..

The thing that makes this tour special is their luxurious Comfort Cruisers. These air conditioned vehicles hold 12 people, each with an ultra-comfortable individual reclining chairs. From the elevated view from your Comfort Cruiser you see more than the views from a rental car that sits lower to the ground. Sit back, relax, and let their expert guides do the driving for you as they share their love for and knowledge of the Hana Highway.

Valley Isle Excursions are superior to Hana tours offered by cruise lines because of the smaller vehicles and the more personal experience. 

Vegetarian lunches are available by request ... if you would like a vegetarian lunch please call our office after making your reservation using the form on the right.

Because this is a long day (10-11 hours), this tour is not recommended for children under 3. Valley Isle Excursions does not provide car seats or booster seats, and you must bring your own if you need to use them. Strollers for children and walkers for elderly are not permitted on board the tour vehicle.

Swimming is permitted at the Pools of Oheo when water levels and weather conditions permit. There is no guarantee though, and no price adjustment on days when swimming is not included.

Cruise Ship Clients

NCL cruise ship passengers are able do the Hana tour on their first day in port in Kahului. They will pick you up at the harbor shortly after you disembark. Please note that they cannot tour you on your second day in port. 

Unfortunately Lahaina cruise ship passengers are not able to do this tour either on day one (you arrive too late) or day two (your cruise ship departs too early)

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.
