Although we had an interesting tour and a good day, we were disappointed in some aspects of our luxury tour. For one thing, on reading the itinerary for the day we were promised a BBQ lunch with some menu choices; however we got a cold picnic lunch which consisted of a wrap,cold salad, a brownie and a bottle of water,.This was the same lunch that we received on the Hana Tour the week before. Also the continental breakfast was disappointing--although the pound cake was fine,the coffee was a bag in a styro foam cup with luke warm water from a thermos.We were expecting a nice hot cup of good Hawaiian coffee. Tour of the Haleakala national Park was good, and our driver was a good guide, but what the luxury tour offered over a regular tour was not worth all the extra money. The tour was almost $500.00 per couple. We were not impressed with the lavender farm at this time of year-nothing very significant, and the same with the wine tasting. I have been to several wine tours,and this did not measure up ,for the amount of money invested.This was our second luxury tour, and after being disappointed with some aspects of both,decided to cancel the third tour. You would be better off taking a regular tour and spending your money on other activities.
This was our first luxury tour, and the driver was well informed and gave us a good history,the vehicle was very comfortable .However, the coffee was not a plus-lukewarm water from a thermos with a coffee bag. Didn't do it for coffee for me.Also ,the picnic lunch was disappointing .For almost $500.00 a couple,I we feel a regular tour would have been just as good, and we would not have been disappointed.All toll,we spent nearly $1,000.00 for something we could have enjoyed just as much for much less money. We cancelled our 3rd tour.
