Beautiful helicopter ride to Hana, then an outstanding ride and commentary with the extremely knowledgeable Garry Temple, great driver, very safety conscious and caring guy, totally excellent day !
We had a wonderful time. The helicopter tour and pilot, were great and the tour guide, Gary, was funny, informative, and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Carole Firestone
It was great to not have to worry about the hairpin turns and tiny bridges with Wayne doing the driving for us! It gave us a chance to admire the Road to Hana and not miss a thing. The helicopter tour was the highlight though. Very calm- not scarey. Our pilot, Gernot made sure to turn the helicopter so both sides could enjoy the views and catch pictures. This is a must do!
A wonderful tour seeing the highlights of Maui especially if you don't haven much time to spend here. Small group tour was appealing when booking and there was only 4 of us. Driver and pilot were terrific and always pointed out photo opportunities for us.
This is the only way to visit Hana! A beautiful helicopter ride that gives you such a beautiful view of the Island. A wonderful trip back in a luxury van, on the 617 turn road trip back to were you started. The tour guide was so informative, and stopped in places you will never see if you do it yourself. Thanks, (Wayne)!
Such a unbelivable adventure!!
The experience was great. We started with the helicopter portion to Hana. The flight was smooth and our pilot knew just where to go and had great facts about what we were seeing. After we landed we had a light lunch which was just right. We then got in the luxury van. It was just as pictured. Our guide knew so much. She took us off the typical visitor paths to see sights we will never forget. This is the perfect tour. Someone flies you out and the drives the road from Hana back to the airport. This is the way to go. I would not have enjoyed the sights if I had to drive and worry about the narrow roads and bends. I highly recommend this tour!
its a great mix of land and air. amazing views and luxury ground transport. i was happy they had a vegetarian option for lunch many places arent so thoughtful. nice knowledgeable guides (pilot and driver).
Great fun. Helicopter was awesome. Van tour guide Wayne Smith could not have been better.
What an amazing experience! To experience Maui from the sky and on ground! The beauty of it all! We had a blast!
We loved it. Loved our guides, loved the food and loved the private stops along the way
Great trip but missed out on seeing the crater due to bad weather . Everything else was up to expectations
Surfer sue a very informative guide . Loved the swim at the waterfall
The flight was terrific, even if the weather wasn't perfect. Volcano clouded over. Mike, our pilot was great, with a fount of information, flying over the island. Wayne our guide on the road trip portion was very knowledgeable and having a small group was so much more enjoyable. Would highly recommend this tour. Only downside is the video of our trip is not HD and diminish the spectacular views. We aslo had a couple of issues with the DVD which we will take up with Blue Hawaii Tours.
Tour was absolutely one of the best! I got a lil sick going up the mountains in Hana, but other than that it,was great! Food was delicuous as well!!!
The Helicopter ride was AMAZING!!!!!! the van tour - soso. The Van guide was pretty self important there were only four of us in the van and told us she would stop whereever we wanted. Everytime I asked to stop and look at anything, she ignored me or said we'll stop soon - she stopped ever ten miles for the other couple to pick fruit on the side of the road. A little annoying. I would take the helicopter both ways next time - our guide was AWESOME and very interesting. I am a little disappointed I bought the video from blue hawaii helicopter tours and have not received it yet.
The helicopter part of the tour was definitely 5 star. Our pilot was fantastic and it was great seeing Maui from that point of view. However I feel the Road to Hana portion was grossly misrepresented. The "gourmet Pacific Rim lunch" was chicken or fish wraps - not bad but not gourmet by anyone's standards. While our driver was nice and certainly knowledgeable about Hawaii and Hawaiian culture, we did not stop to shop in any quaint villages (something we looked forward to doing) - in fact, I wasn't even aware when we were in Hana though I assume that is where our helicopter landed. We did not stop in Ke'anae though we must have driven through. I rate the drive portion 2 stars thus the 3 over all. This tour is a lot of money and I did not feel it was entirely worth the amount spent.
Flight was excellent. The ride down stopped too many times and for to long at commercial venues. For instance, 25 minutes @ a business selling nuts and only 10 minutes at beach stop. More natural beauty and less commercial.
