Your day trip begins with a pickup from your Maui hotel. Meet your guide and settle in to an air-conditioned vehicle for the drive upcountry to Haleakala National Park.
Covering 33,000 acres of rocky, volcanic wilderness, the park offers dramatic views. Summit the 10,023-foot (3,007-meter) dormant Haleakala volcano by vehicle while learning about its geological history, and local legends from your guide.
Stop for lunch (own expense) in historic Makawao town to refuel before your afternoon adventure.
Next head to Iao Valley State Park where Iao Needle rises 1,200 feet (366 meters) from the valley floor. Walk along a short trail to an overlook. Nearby, visit Kaahumanu Church, named after one of Hawaii's monarchs, Queen Kaahumanu.
Finally, journey through the city of Wailuku, county seat of Maui and home to historic buildings, the details of which your guide explains before you continue on past flower farms, pineapple fields, and sugar cane plantations.
Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your Maui hotel.
