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!
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..
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).
