ACTIVITY TIPS

Kevin at Falls

Guided Hana 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 the ones found on this page are perfect. The size of groups on these tours is smaller ... ranging from 22 on the high end with Polynesian Adventures to just 8 with Temptation Tours ... or even smaller with Hawaiian Style Tours if you go the completely private tour route. 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 these.

For over 20 years the "7 Sacred Pools" was included as a stop on these tours. In the old days this was a great place to visit ... it is a bit of a hike to get down to the stream from the parking lot, but swimming at these waterfalls was a highlight of the tour for many people. Unfortunately several flood-related drownings made the National Park Service much more cautious on allowing swimming at these pools. On days when swimming was not allowed, guests were not even allowed access to the stream level, and views of the waterfalls from the upper trail were not that great. This meant that the stop at the 7 Pools was becoming a time-consuming disappointment for many visitors. Most companies are now going to a different waterfall where swimming is possible on the vast majority of days ... and the time that used to be spent at the 7 Pools is now split between this other waterfall location and the black sand beach park of Waianapanapa, a place guests often said they wished they could have spent more time.

Which tour company to use? Well, the choice MIGHT come down to whichever tour you can find space available on your date! All of these companies have returned to normal operation since the pandemic, but most of them have downsized and are running fewer vehicles per day than what they did in the past. This means that Hana tours are often selling out 6 WEEKS in advance or more! To check availability for your date, select the company you'd like to reserve using the form on the right. That will take you to a calendar where you can check a particular date ... and if the company you've chosen isn't available the number of available seats with the other comapnies will appear. We'll help you FIND space on your date ... as long as you are planning ahead!!!
