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

- Lite Morning Snack and Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch
- Geology Cave Tour (all gear included)

"A must see tour"

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 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:

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!!!!
