Private Maui Guided Tour of Road to Hana

A Full-Day Adventure

Breathtaking Views

A Road Day-Trip of a Lifetime on Maui, Hawaii

As the name suggests, this is not your typical Road to Hana tour. Unique Road to Hana takes you on a full-day adventure all the way around East Maui for an unforgettable trip. We usually head to the backside and go counter-clockwise to avoid the bulk of the crowds, but it’s up to you (and the weather)! We stop at all the highlights along the way and help you make the best of your Maui rainforest tour.

What You'll Do

Depending on what you like to do, as well as the weather and road conditions, your guide will take you either clockwise or counterclockwise around East Maui. Either way, have your camera ready and be prepared to be wowed by the views!

We’ll have opportunities to walk through Maui’s beautiful rainforest or drylands, cool off with a swim at a waterfall, sample some of the delicious local cuisine, see some of the island’s spectacular coastline views, go through lava caves, and maybe even check out our resident sea turtles!

We won’t be able to see and do everything in one day, but we are always happy to customize your tour so it makes sense and you can see as much as possible in one day.

Please Note: We do not trespass on private property nor visit spots that are “kapu” or notoriously dangerous, or where visitors are not welcome by the local community (yes, sadly that includes Kaihalulu, aka Red Sand Beach).

Note that the “backroad” is frequently undergoing construction and is closed to traffic. If we are not able to go all the way around, rest assured you’ll still have an amazing day with plenty of time to have fun!
