What You Can Expect
Discover the small town of Makawao, home to the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboys) and a lively art community. Drive up to the protea farms of Kula to discover the unusual flowers that flourish in the Kula area of Maui. Continue ascending into upcountry Maui, where you’ll see ranches, rare flora and fauna, and farms with lofty views.
You’ll then reach Haleakala Crater, the "House of the Sun." The dormant volcano last released its fury in 1790. More than 200 years later, the land surrounding the lava flow is still barren. The summit rises 10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level. The crater is 3,000 feet deep, 7.5 miles (12 km) long, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide and 22 miles (35 km) in circumference. From here, you’ll enjoy expansive views over the island.

Great day. We had a great guide, comfortable coach, fantastic switch back roads with great views up to crater. The crater was amazing but word to wise, leave your hats on the bus - the winds up there are unbelievable. All in all a great day. T'N'T
The trip was operated by the major Hawaiian tour company,using a first class coach, picking up/dropping off at the same place as the cruise ship's own tour. It also did the same itinerary but at a vastly reduced price! Unfortunately, the weather was wet and cloudy up to 7,000 feet but above that we were in sunshine and, at 10,000 feet, the crater looked like your publicity photo.
We found the Driver's running commentary on the sights (including those we could barely see), the landscape and geology very informative and, at times, hilarious. He deserved full marks.
Amazing views of the crater and the island. Don't forget to bring a jacket, there were people walking around in summer shirts and they were very cold.
The excursion was enhanced by the tour director. His knowledge and manner were excellent. Though the weather did not cooperate we were still able to experience the awesomeness of the crater.
Harvey was a great tour guide. We would do this tour again.
It was just as I expected, even better.
This was a great tour! Our driver was very pleasant and knowledgeable! We had an awesome view that day, it was truly spectacular! Would not miss the Haleakala Crater and certainly glad we left the driving to the bus driver! Its a challenging road to the Haleakala Crater! Thank you, Alyssa and Don.
Excellent trip, fascinating scenery, all thoroughly enjoyable. Some of the views could have been Mars!
