We were the only 2 booked for this day. Les, our driver, made this very good. He took us up to the crater for great views. Then because we had alreadt done the Hana Coast trip, he took us around places we had not been to. We saw various homes of famous people and many of the major hotels. Les, was very informative about lots of places and things around our tour.
The tour gave us a good look at two locations that we probably wouldn't have undertaken by ourselves. Les, our guide, gave us great information that helped us understand the Island and what we were seeing. He went out of his way to point out special spots before we got to them so we could be ready with our cameras. Great, personal tour.
The tour guides - Mike and Bill - were exceptional and very funny. My son was a picky eater, but they accommodated his needs. The tour was excellent - except that one of the other participants had a cold which both my son and I caught making the end of our trip to Maui a little different than we expected.
It was a magnificent tour. Les Allison was very accommodating. His driving was excellent. His knowledge and storytelling ability was great. Viator provided an excellent day for us. Everything was top notch.
Our tour guide, Les, was OUTSTANDING! He was very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and current events of the islands. Lunch was very fresh and delicious! Les' kindness made our tour that much more enjoyable.
This was a fabulous tour. Our tour guide, Sean, was very knowledgeable of everything from history to geology, food to music, botany to astronomy. The drive to the top of Haleakala was spectacular and although one can do it themselves, it is much better to have a driver who can explain things.
Great tour. We were a family of five and ended up being the only ones on the tour. We got aazing pics of Haleakala. We had two kids which is why we chose this tour since I wasnt sure if they would enjoy a car ride to Hana but this was perfect. One day and we got amazing pics. Lunch was at a lavendar farm and the food was good.
Our recent trip to the national park and the Hana rainforest was exceptional. Our driver was very nice and informative about the area and the people who live there. Unfortunately it was raining when we reached the top of the crater but the trip up was still interesting. The rainforest was a nice compliment to the park and worth seeing. Throughout the day we were able to get out and look around and take pictures. We learned a great deal. It was definitely worth it!

Tour was very good, good guide. Disappointed in lunch, considering the price of the tour, I expected better.

Lovely tour, glad it went ahead with there just being the two of us booked for that day. Lunch was lovely, although didn't think much of the area chosen to have it. Would have preferred a stop with a view of the ocean.
What a day.... Dry landscapes, a dormant volcano, winding road through a rainforest are all part of this day. We had the luxury car and the driver was very enthusiastic and shared many great experiences.... A good all round if a long one. Do it..
Great trip with very knowledgable driver. Spectacular scenery. Only negative was van seating. Of the 8 seats, 3 were ideal, 2 were good and 3 were terrible. Cramped rear bench with little leg room on outer seats and middle seat having very poor viewing outside. We rotated periodically in acknowledgement that some seats were poor so everybody got good and bad when we had all hoped for good period.
The tour guide, Andy, was great! The Haleakala National Park part was the highlight of the tour, would recommend that part of the tour. The rainforest part was lack-luster... I've been to the state park rainforest on the Big Island which is terrific, so was sort of expecting something like that. I also think the lunch stop needs serious re-vamping. A picnic in a run-down park, really?? The food was adequate, but the surroundings weren't. Find a restaurant somewhere. Also not having sodas available for drink leaves something to be desired...we aren't coffee drinkers, and juices are just too loaded with sugar, water was good but I got tired of it.
Haleakala was amazing and our trip along the Hana Coast was beautiful. While we appreciated the guide's knowledge, he had a bit of an attitude and was quick to point out our mistakes. I almost feel like he was not the ideal person to lead a small group tour (this ended up just being our family).
Not worth the money. Would have rated lower except our tour guide, Al, was excellent. Never received our light snacks and lunch was poor.
