Description

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.

I would not believe that a day trip to Hana could take a trip to such a level that it is hard to comprehend. Our guide Paul Janes-Brown was so knowledgeable, as I sat in the front with spectacular views it felt like I was living in a history channel documentary. Paul's love for Maui and the culture truly intrigued me. I was completely amazed at every bend in the road. Thank you for making this trip a memorable experience and teaching us what aloha is all about. Step 2 Leave review on:

Gayle Shufeldt was our tour driver today on our tour to Hana. She was absolutely fabulous! The tour was amazing and she was full of knowledge and provided us with so much information along the way. She was so helpful with family photos and went out of her way to give us the best family experience. This is a tour that I would highly recommend and hope your lucky enough to tour with Gayle!

Tour was just ok. An all day event, so plan accordingly. Our guide, Bill, was just average. He was very curt when asked a question. He had a script for his tour and did not like to be interrupted while he was on a roll. He make a number of comments about other drivers that were not necessary.

Fantastic day! Our driver, Wendy, was great. We had a family of six, including two young granddaughters (10 and 4). Wendy interacted with them very well which kept them engaged and interested during the trip (a long 10 hour trip)! Wendy’s knowledge of Maui, Hana, flora, fauna, history, etc was impressive! She was a walking, talking encyclopedia! This is our second Hana tour with Temptations, and I highly recommended them. The van was clean, new, very comfortable. I requested Wendy after reading that other people recommended her, and I also now strongly recommend her. She took tons of pictures of our family. She was polite, friendly, and genuinely wanted to make sure that all six of us had a great time. I was also very impressed with her driving skills on the sometimes treacherous road to Hana. The Cave Quest Tour was something we had not done before, and it was pretty cool. It was just something different to do on Maui. The lunch was very good. Fresh food, prepared very nicely. Overall, our day was truly fantastic thanks to Temptations Tours and Wendy!

We had Scotty for the Road to Hana tour. We helicoptered to Hana with Jack as our pilot and drove down. We had special needs due to my 7 year old granddaughter. Scotty was so very patient and kind. He was attentive to my granddaughter, helped us with family photos, and was very knowledgeable about the road. Our lunch was exceptional. Scotty made a special stop to let my granddaughter see the sea turtles. I would highly recommend this tour. The van was comfortable and Scotty was an excellent driver. We had a great day!!!!
