Tour guide Tom was a wealth of information, quick wit and good humor. The best way to see a good portion of the island, but a tad long for me. But I would tell anyone to do it once because you will see and learn a lot. Loved the Hana lunch.
Will do it again and my concern was the non inclusion of lunch. Tour guide very informed. Great experience and thank you.
Amazing trip - the differences between the windward and leeward sides for the island is just unbelievable. Our guide was great, and definitely knew his stuff, especially about the native flora. Unfortunately we didn't get to swim due to the weather, but would've been pushed for more than a quick dip anyway as the schedule is quite tight. The tour bus seated about 18, we had 12 on our trip. It was a full day, and parts of the road are quite rough and on the edge of a cliff, so I wouldn't recommend this if you have a bad back or couldn't cope with a bumpy road. Otherwise, this is a must-do trip on Maui!

Doing what: East Maui 45-minute Helicopter Tour over Haleakala Crater
Beautiful trip, tour guide was very knowledgable.
The tour guide was great! He was very knowledgeable about Maui and the history of the Hana and its agriculture and plant life. He took us to the Seven Sacred Pools, countless waterfalls, an organic farm to table for lunch, black beach sand, a free wine tasting vineyard, amongst others. He was a fountain of information. I learned so much that day, and saw so many beautiful sites!
This tour was excellent. The driver was extremely knowledgeable and we learned SO much about the history and culture of Maui. We made several stops for photos, plus extended stops at a black sand beach, the Seven Sacred Pools, a delicious organic farmers market lunch in Hana, and a wine tasting on the way back. It was great being able to sit back and enjoy the amazing views instead of having to drive. We also drove the "Back Road to Hana," which was a highlight for me, and a road that not many other people drive on their own. Highly recommended!!!
Shaun O'Briant, a native Hawaian was an excellent tour guide.
We were disappointed in this tour because we were lead to believe that we would be seeing the 7 pools and a wine tasting place. Just went to Hana and back the same way. Did not get to walk among the falls which was advertised. just 6 in the group so thought we would have time to see and do more.
I survived the road to Hana! This was a very exciting day, even though we spent a lot of time in the bus
The coach was very comfortable and our driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. The views were spectacular with something interesting to see after every bend. Although it was a great experience, as you travel around most of the island, the roads are very winding and the whole trip takes about 9 hours, which was a bit too long and tiring. I would therefore recommend this tour if you are staying in Maui for a week or more.

Doing what: Small-Group Luxury Day Trip to Haleakala National Park and Hana Coast Rainforest
Very picturesque , must bring your camera
Not a drive that I would take on by myself... good info from the tour driver.
Very fun and interesting. Be prepared and take Dramamine, even if you do not get motion sick. I do not, and was so glad to have it. The 617 switchbacks are killer! You will thank me. Other than that, a marvelous time.
Small group travel is the only way to go. Our van and driver (Wayne) were truly first class. We were able to stop in places the large tours could not. This created better photo ops and a more intimate tour. Our snack and lunch were first rate as well. You will not be disappointed.
