The tour driver(s) were friendly and courteous. They were well informed about various historic and current events of Maui. My overall stay in Maui was beyond AWESOME! I can't wait to revisit. I thought the tour of Iao Valley was SPECTACULAR! I took some great pictures! This is my second tour with Viator and I was not disappointed!

This was my first time trip to Maui from Dallas, TX. The tour guides were great! They were excellent drivers and full of trivia and stories to enhance the tourist experience. I enjoyed both tours immensely bcuz I felt at ease and not rushed.
