from Maui Haleakala Crater and Rainforest Day Tour
This unique package offers the opportunity to experience the wide variety of Maui’s diverse scenery - from Haleakala National Park, an exotic protea farm and paniolo “cowboy” country to the Hana Coast rainforest, waterfalls & a famous windsurfing beach - all in one day. Beginning with complimentary pick-up between 7:00 am & 7:30 am and then touring through the Central Valley, in one of our exclusive, 6 to 8 guest, Luxury Limo-Vans, we begin this Adventure in Paradise with a lite morning snack.

Start the day “on top the world” at the pinnacle of Haleakala National Park at 10,023 feet. The “House of the Sun” visitor’s center offers breathtaking panoramas from the rim of the crater. There are many photo opportunities while descending this scenic mountain drive. View cattle and dairy ranches on the way to the Hawaiian paniolo cowboy town of Makawao. This unique town still has hitching posts, from back when horses were more common than cars. Today this quaint village is home to quite an eclectic group of little shops and boutiques.

Enjoy a bountiful Upcountry Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch. After lunch, travel east through Ha’iku, where the grass is always a beautiful emerald green and bountiful avocados, citrus, bananas and exotic tropical flowers grow. After leaving Ha’iku, experience the spectacular Hana Coast rainforest. Visit Ke’anae, a traditional Hawaiian farming community, in which little has changed in the last 500 years. The return journey takes us to Ho’okipa Beach Park, the “windsurfing capital of the world.” Photo opportunities abound as these windsurfers really put on an aquatic show.

Tour Returns: 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm.

Haleakala Crater & Rainforest Full Day Tour Includes: Luxury Limo-Van with only 6 - 8 Guests, Certified Guide Narrated 9 -10 hour Tour, Lite Morning Snack and Upcountry Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch, Entrance Fee to Haleakala National Park, Protea Garden tour or Waterfall Swim, & unlimited ice-cold drinks.

"Keith is the man!"

Did the Ultimate Hana tour yesterday and was blown away with the quality of everything from the included breakfast and lunch to the knowledge of our guide. As a bit of an adrenaline junkie, I was eager to jump some waterfalls and cliffs, and Keith sure delivered. He recommended safe places to indulge in a little rush of craziness. He told of the history of the island and shared awesome facts about the flora and fauna we encountered. Of course the road to Hana is an incredible experience with or without a guide, but there's no way I would have known everything Keith shared with us. The road itself is full of beauty and mystique, but this tour and our guide gave us irreplaceable memories. Maui, No Ka Oi!!

"Van Tour Not As Advertised"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

Stay away from the Road to Hana Van Tour. The advertisements are deceiving. Each van seats 8 people. Four people get the advertised seats. Three people are crammed into a bench in the back and one sits in the front. If you are the unlucky last couple to board, you'll be separated from your friend one in the front seat and the other in the back bench with two of who will be your closest friends for the day. When the tour is full, there is a 50% chance you'll be separated or crammed into that back bench. Once you see it and change your mind, no refunds.

We flew in a Blue Hawaiian helicopter to Hana and rode back in a luxury tour van. Our pilot Michael was informative, friendly, and helpful. Our van tour guide Gayle was informative, attentive, and super friendly. She provided history, local customs, and details about the beautiful landscape and scenery. She answered questions and offered suggestions about the islands in general.

We took the road trip to Hana with Temptation Tours and it was a wonderful experience. The van was very comfortable and our tour guide Tony was an excellent driver. Tony made the drive a wonderful experience! He was so knowledgeable about the local plants, wildlife and the history of Maui. He was able to answer all of our questions and it was a delight to spend the day with him. If you decide to take the Ultimate tour you will be treated to a lovely breakfast at Cafe Mambo in Paia and a beautiful lunch at Travassa in Hana. I would definitely recommend this tour and our tour guide Tony for your trip to Hana.

Left our ship with guide Captain Al at 8AM. He is a fantastic guide and very insightful. Made safety a priority on the twisting narrow road to Hana. Great lunch! Great stops on the way. Thought the return trip would be tiresome bu Al made it fun keeping everyone involved at showing us things we couldn't see on the way out. Back at our ship at 4PM. Highly Reccomend this tour!
