My mom and I took this tour with 4 other people (for a total of 6 visitors) with Jamie in March of 2017 (in a brand new bus, I feel I should mention, since the quality and comfort of the bus was fantastic even on the challenging road to and from Hana). Going on this guided tour was the best... More

We were a family of 5. The 8 passenger van was very comfortable for the 12 hr trip. Nathan was terrific! My oldest sister is 80yr -though you wouldn't know it!- he was very kind with her. He is from the Hana area, so he is very knowledgable about the area. We enjoyed all the numerous stops. I especially loved... More

I was hoping for a lot of photo stops, but this was not to be. We just drove and drove. The stops we did were not that interesting, and 90 minutes at a black sand beach was an overkill. We had to buy our own snacks mid-morning. At the end it was a race to a winery with very bad... More

Feb 7/2017 We took a "Mahalo Road to Hana" tour, which started at 7 and ended at 7pm. Whew! A long day, but it was great! Thank god we had a Hawaiian driving (Nathan), and he was kind, funny, a great driver and tour guide, and knew the roads, because they were pretty hairy! And I'm a nervous Nelly, and... More

Nathan was our tour guide & we are so lucky to have been with him on the Road to Hana & Backcountry Tour in January this year. We were with 3 other couples & had such a fun day, the van was comfortable & spacious. The scenery is so spectacular & changes constantly with just about every terrain & landscape... More

This tour company is fantastic and our guide, Charlie (Kavai, I'm not sure how to spell his actual Hawaiian name:) but he said call him Charlie) was wonderful! We truly enjoyed spending the day with him, he made us feel like family. He was so knowledgeable about the island and he actually genuinely CARED to give us a great tour... More

This was an all day tour starting from our hotel at 7.00am and returning at 7.30pm (6 others were collected from different hotels) but we came back feeling exhilarated. The tour guide Charlie was amazing- he was so well informed, he had a great sense of humour, and he was an all round sensational person. We had delicious snacks through... More

This could have been an awesome experience and because of our self absorbed driver it ended up being very average. We had a local man, 25 years old, who, to hear him tell it there is nothing he cannot do or has not done. He had a fabulous grasp of the culture but the entire trip was about him and... More

Our driver/tour guide, Rich, made our Road to Hana trip such a memorable, and safe experience. He arrived on time, with a smile, and gave us so much information all along the trip. Even though it was misting and a little chilly that morning, we had a great time. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to do this tour.... More
