It was a great tour and an amazing experience! Maui is one of the most beautiful islands in the world and definitely worth seeing. The tour was well organized, the guide very friendly and funny and I had a great time with the other tour participants. The only downside was that my flight back to Oahu was delayed, which was not the agencies fault of course. However they didn't wait for me at the Airport as promised but simply drove away with the guests from other tours which arrived on time. This would have not been that bad if they would have organized another transportation. But that was not the case and I had to take care of the ride back to my hotel myself althought that service was supposed to be included in the tour package!
The tour was really great and gives you a good first overview. There is enough time for pictures and to experience the view. Since the tour is only a 1-day trip, there is unfortunately not enough time to explore places in detail. Furthermore, the pick-up and organization was a bit unorganized. However, if you are limited in time, I can only recommend this tour.
Maui was a great place to visit, although we had a guide from upstate NY that was more intent on commenting on the driving of others and the appearances of pedestrians than sharing any information about the area. I'm sure I missed some of what he said, because I started tuning him out after the 1st hour. The provided lunch left a lot to be desired, as it was plain rice and bland grilled chicken... not at all what you would expect with all of the amazing local choices. It was also disappointing that with all of the roadside stands with fresh local fruit, the only stop we made was at the stand that sold the driver's favorite banana bread. We did our best to enjoy the experience, but it would have been much better without Wayne's rambling commentary.
I had a very enjoyable time on this tour around Maui, Roy who was our driver and guide for the day was wonderful and had a plethora of historical knowledge to share with us throughout the whole tour. Make sure you get plenty of sleep the night before the tour, as it's a very long day beginning at 4:30am till 7pm. Unfortunately our return flight was delayed, and our bus pick up after we landed back in Oahu missed us? I had to call them and organise another pick up for 5 of us, the bus eventually collected us after 9pm, so it was a very very long day, and a frustrating way to end what was a wonderful day. Apart from this hick up, I'd still recommend this tour to new visitors to Hawaii and I'm glad I got the chance to visit Maui and capture some wonderful photos of it's natural beauty.
It was a terrible trip. We had to wake up real early to go to the airport, and after reaching Maui, we spent the entire long day in a small uncomfortable bus listening to a bored, uninterested guide Elizabeth. Despite having a beautiful sunny day, she would only stop few times for a few minutes of sightseeing, then threaten us to leave us behind if late!! Our promised swim in the lake was NOT fulfilled claiming that the water was high you should mention that in the tour description!!. The food was simply PATHETIC. Also, despite paying more, we were not given the souvenir gifts. A truly terrrible event....DO NOT DO IT.
If you are the kind of people that loves to view great landscapes through the window, do it. This is a bus tour, we only stopped for a 5-10 minutes at each view. Big stops were only for lunch at the restaurant and for an 1 hour swim at the sacred pools To get to the swimming area takes you about 10 mins each way. Overall, from 8 to 5 inside the bus with quick stops. To me it doesn't worth the effort of getting up at 4 to get picked up at the hotel at 5 to head to the airport, wait for you flight to arrive to Maui and then be on the bus for so many hours just watching and then get back to the airport and be back at your Waikiki hotel at 10 PM. May be if you are staying at Maui so you can go back to whatever you liked the most of the highlights.
