Description

from Maui Hana Cave-Quest Day Tour
The day begins with complimentary pick-up between 7:00 am & 7:30 am. Traveling to Pa’ia leads us to start a new Adventure in Paradise with a light morning snack. Afterward, the journey to Hana begins. Tour the famous Road to Hana in the air-conditioned comfort of an exclusive, 6 to 8 guest, Luxury Limo-Van. Photo opportunities abound, along this spectacular sea-coast drive. Ke’anae, a quaint Hawaiian village with peaceful taro fields and Waikani Falls, glistening with fresh mountain rain water, are just two of the many sights to be enjoyed. Guests discover and learn, in-depth, about the native Hawaiian people, their culture, and land.

This full day Interactive Experience allows guests to tour the remote Hana Coast, plus discover Maui’s own “Wonder of the World”, the incredible Ka’eleku Cavern. Created by Pele, the Goddess of Fire, this enormous subterranean lava tube resembles a chocolate-colored Lava Cathedral Cave, frozen in time forever! Walk beneath the dense tropical rain forest of Hana through Pele’s famous underground passage. Discover elephant’s foot stalactites, mounds of chocolate colored lava drops and soufflé-like lava swirls formed over 30,000 years ago. Photos permitted, so take your camera for some mystical pictures of “Hana Down-Under”.

After the hike, guests delight in a scrumptious Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch.

Heading back to the “real world”, we return from Hana at a “Maui-style” pace. There’s plenty of time to swim, or just relax and enjoy. Bring bathing suits and towels to capture a lifetime memory of swimming in a crystal clear, freshwater pool under a cascading waterfall.

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

Each Hana Cave-Quest Full Day Tour Includes:
- Luxury Limo-Van with only 6 - 8 Guests
- Certified Guide Narrated 9 -10 Hour Tour
- Lite Morning Snack and Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch
- Geology Cave Tour (all gear included)

"A must see tour"
May, 2016
Temptation Tours was the company we personally rated as # 1. It was worth every penny we spent and the Guide/driver of the mini bus Sean was the best guide ever. We felt we were in a best company and the mini van was one of the best. Sean took us thru the full day and narrated the history of all the places we went. He did not rush and took more than enough time to visit all the places and went above and beyond to make sure that we get the full knowledge of the place. We only wished we could convey and persuade our friends to go with temptation Tours when ever they visit Hawaii. Wonderful job our friend Sean.

I am glad that we didn’t drive this toad and had an experienced driver. The Can was comfortable, but did squeak, which by the end was becoming annoying. Would strongly recommend taking a tour on the road to Hana and not driving it yourselves. It is a scary road!

Our driver was Wendy with Temptation tours and she was a wonderful guide. She was patient, informative, and just very knowledgeable for our guided tour of Road to Hana. She sang local songs that i recorded. Lovely voice. She took the time to take pictures we requested. Just a wonderful guide for our group of 7. Highly recommend Wendy and Temptation Tours on Maui.

Did private luxury van Hana tour. Gary was a great driver and tour guide! Never a dull moment during the drive. Gary is very knowledgeable and entertaining. Incredible views on the Hana drive and Gary is a very safe driver. Mine was our helicopter pilot on the way back. He did a great job flying and was also very knowledgeable as well. Fun time all around! Highly recommended!

We booked a small group tour and was lucky that we ended up with a private tour with Jay. He picked us up on time and we went to the quaint town of Paia for breakfast. Good coffee and gluten free option. Jay is very knowledgeable about Maui, the flora and fauna and specifically the road to Hana. He knows the roads very well and we were happy we decided not to do the drive ourselves especially when we saw emergency vehicles racing past us. He took us to Waianapanapa Black Sand Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach Beach which is marker 32 on the way to Hana. It is not to be missed. We had a beautiful day. We missed the rain in the areas we were in but by the time we got to the areas that had the rain it gave us beautiful waterfalls. We had a great lunch at The Preserve which was at a beautiful boutique hotel in Hana with amazing views. We stopped on the way back for more photo ops and at a little fruit stand to get a Maui Gold pineapple and bananas that we enjoyed the next day.
