We enjoyed our first day and did the Road to Hana excursion via Valley Isle Excursions (booked directly) that offered a scenic, twist and turn roads, great BBQ lunch and a memorable, yet teeth chattering experience as our tour went all the way around Hana to areas where good roads are hard to find. Our tour guide/driver, Dennis, was wonderful. Read Less

Let's begin with kudos to Tony Perry of Temptation Tours...he deserves huge kudos as he took our "deluxe" trip and made it all about the 8 people on board with him. He stopped when we wanted, he made sure no one got motion sickness on the very curvy road, he found a great place for lunch and set it all up for us (it was a delicious lunch too), he gave us plenty of time for photos and restroom breaks. He clearly loves his job and his island. Read Less

Our tour driver Bjorn gave a very complete day, and he excelled at providing a history. Unlike the cruise line tours that use larger coaches and can only go on the northern road to Hana, our tour returnred via the remoter south coast road that is unsealed and off limits to self rental cars. Even with our small group many of the stopping points were crowded (and we were in the off season!). Read Less

We got to see everything that everyone else did on the Road to Hana for less money. In addition, our driver took "The Road Back from Hana" which few of the others did. We were told rental cars aren't allowed on this road because it is narrow and steep. It was a full day tour and we saw lots of things that mostly locals see. Because of the strong possibility that you will return late, this tour should be taken only on the first day of your stay in Maui. Read Less

Maui: Road to Hana. Reviews said this was an unpaved, windy road. It is now paved. There are many curves and bridges but the guide was so informative, and he made so many frequent stops that the time went fast. Scenery is gorgeous. The water falls are numerous and beautiful. We had lunch at Waianapanapa State Park, at the Honokalali beach, a unique black sand beach. Spectacular! We ate coconut ice cream, freshly made, and went to Ho'okipa beach to see leatherback turtles. This was a fun and informative excursion. Read Less

Originally I reserved a rental car for my husband to drive the “Road to Hana” on Maui. We even brought our GPS and software to narrate the sights and stops along the 620 hairpin curves and 59 mostly one-lane bridges in 52 miles of incredible views to the tiny town of Hana. After marrying my husband, one of my best decisions was to cancel the car rental and go with the ship excursion. The tour on November 1, 2018, took 11 hours which includes the tender rides back to the ship! Good thing we cancelled the car rental as we would have seen very little except the road and likely been late back to the ship. The ship would have sailed without us had we not booked through Princess. The Polynesian Adventure Tours 25-person van driver, Jennifer, was the most skillful driver we ever experienced. We drive a 37 foot motorhome so know how difficult it is to maintain those speeds on such curvy roads and to know precisely where to stop and honk the horn before going into a one lane curve, and where the best photos should be taken. We saw sea turtles on the beach (while keeping a respectful distance), walked on black sand beaches and through a lava tube to the ocean, enjoyed a box lunch by the sea, and took hundreds of photos. Jennifer kept up a steady narration and made sure we got plenty of bathroom breaks. It was a bit hard hearing at the back of the bus, and at times warm in spite of her efforts but every other aspect was excellent. The road was not too rough nor the tour too long for us, but I am sure the ship captain was not happy with the crew and other passengers having to wait so long for us. Renting a car and using the Road To Hana $10 phone app software would be OK if you were staying in a hotel. Read Less

Don't go!
Don't go! It's 6 hours on a small bus with a poor sound system over 100 miles of very windy twisty switchbacks. Made a lot of people queesy and motion sick.

The Road to Hana is LONG. Our driver was allowing folks too much time out of the van and we did not get back to the boat until 7PM. The air conditioning in the van was not working so it was long and HOT.

We rented a car and did the Road to Hana ourselves. It has very many curves and bridges you need to handle. The growth is so overgrown you can't see around it to see if anyone is coming when you have to yield. A lot of waterfalls near the bridges and people are pulling over on the narrow shoulder to get out which makes driving very dangerous. I would suggest taking a tour rather than driving. . .it was very stressful. When you get to Hana, there is a general store, one restaurant and one gas station. To me, not really worth the time and stress. Read Less
