Five stars for sure. Worth the time and money. Steve was our driver, he was knowledgeable, friendly and very sweet to spend time with. Our pilot Hugo was the best! He was funny as well as knowledgeable on the terrain. Best day on Maui! Well do it again.
This excursion was definitely one of my highlights from our Hawaii vacation!!! I was very apprehensive at first when we booked it because I often get motion sickness. However the helicopter ride was extremely comfortable since we had individual seats with our own air vents. The views on the helicopter were amazing with us seeing numerous waterfalls. The van driver Scott Ferguson was very entertaining and kept us well informed about what we were viewing. We all appreciated the fact that he knew the road to Hana so well that we felt completely safe the whole time he was driving and we were all able to concentrate on enjoying the scenery. I loved the way he would let us know in advance that a spectacular photo opportunity was just around the corner or next curve so to have our cameras ready. If we would have been driving our own vehicle I'm sure we would have missed so much. This excursion was first class from the moment we arrived at the helicopter hangar until the moment the van returned us to our rental vehicle. Thank you Viator for packaging this lovely excursion!

If you can only take one tour while in Maui, take this one, you will not regret it period. We also had perfect weather! Drove to Hana at 7:Am and flew back just after lunch.
My husband and I did this tour on our honeymoon and loved it! The guide was very nice and knew where to stop. Also the van was new and comfortable. The helicopter ride was amazing and we go to see many awesome sights! The length of the tour was perfect! I would highly recommend this tour!!!
Our tour guide steve was AMAZING. So knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He told us to some additional spots as we had so much time left. We took this small tour and he made it completely VIP for the 6 of us.
Fabulous trip. Our driver Gary was very knowledgable on the Hawaiian history and everything about Hana! Although too cloudy to fly over Haleakala, we had a beautiful view of the islands. Would recommend this as a MUST DO excursion. Worth the money!
The weather didn't cooperate in the beginning, but by the time we got to the black sand beach it had quit raining and we got to explore the beach. Steve, our driver did a fantastic job driving us in the rain and had umbrellas for all of us to go check out the waterfall. We got to see the blowhole blow and enjoyed a delicious lunch of fish or chicken wrap with homemade pasta salad and fresh pineapple in the park. Our helicopter pilot, Derek, was also great. This tour was in my top 5 of all tours we've ever takes. Definitely do not miss this one.
The van was very nice and new, with comfy bucket seats and awesome a/c. We had a narrated tour and Gary was a safe and courteous driver. We made a few stops for some goodies and photo ops. Lunch in Hana was nicely done and fresh and tasty. The black sand beach was AMAZING and the cave or lava tube was very interesting as well. Chris was the helicopter pilot and he was also great. Knowledgeable and friendly as well as a very competent pilot. He also narrated and the views are awesome no matter what seat you sit in. State of the art helicopter and video recorded in flight for purchase after the flight. Reasonable price too! Worth the and a quick return to vacation afterwords. Thank you Viator!
This 1/2 day trip was awesome! We saw some beautiful sights on the van ride up and really enjoyed the helicopter ride back! I am very glad that we chose this trip! If I had it to do over again, I would have purchased a longer helicopter ride. Blue Hawaiian Heicoptor is OUTSTANDING!
This tour was fantastic! Our guide Mike was very accommodating and knowledgeable. Gave us interesting facts about Maui and taught us Hawaiian as we drove the road to Hana. Swimming under the waterfall and the black sand beach were fabulous!! Then to top it off with a helicopter ride back was off
Wonderful experience with a very professional and informative Guide in Gary!
Fantastic Trip All Around
Trip to Hana was fun, beautiful and informative. We were in a small group of 6. SO glad we did not try to drive as the driver would not have been able to appreciate the scenery, being to busy focusing on the road and its obstacles instead of views. Helicopter ride was truly spectacular. The pilot provided commentary and took us over various areas. This is really a way to get a unique perspective of the lush beauty of the island. No reserving seats in the helicopter. You are weighed and assigned seats based on weight distribution within the helicopter. We were luck and sat right up front so we could see right through the bubble window. And I amwas? afraid of heights. A very secure experience.

An awesome tour. Steve was a great driver and info-filled guide. We would have never made the road to Hana on our own. He made it a pleasure. Tim, the helicopter pilots also was great. Helpful with all the info he had as well. All in all, it was time very well spent.
Wonderful trip. Great pilot and driver was so informative. Both had great personalities. The drive one way and fly the other way for road to Hana was an amazing trip. I would highly recommend this company. Best way to d o road to Hana and not make it a 12 hour excursion.
We took the afternoon Viator and started by flying out with Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours - Maui located at 1 Kahului Airport Road, Hangar 105, Kahului, Maui. Essentially this flight eastward by pilot/guide Katie took us over sugar cane fields near Kahului while slowly gaining altitude it is a helicopter, after all to approximately 10,000 feet, all the time informing us of attractions below. We passed by the Haleakala astronomical observatory, the chain link fence which was erected to try to keep out feral goats, pigs and axis deer, and of course the main and subsidiary craters of Haleakala. As we headed further east into Haleakala National Park we noted the changing terrain and evidence of lava pipes from previous eruptions, some of which are now channels for rain water. Even further on we noted the tall trees over 100 feet of the Hana Forest Preserve and some spectacular waterfalls, one of which is nearly 1,600 feet high. We landed after about 35 minutes and were greeted by our driver/guide Wayne who drove us from the airport to Hanas black sand beach where we were treated to a tasty picnic lunch, and then the second part of our adventure began.
Wayne was a treasure trove of information regarding the scenic and historical attractions of the area, even including the burned out auto and appliance remnants along the highway. We saw the weeping wall, Keanae Peninsula across from which Steve McQueen jumped over the cliff in the movie Papillon, had the opportunity to take short hikes to various attractions, enjoyed ice cream at a roadside stand and saw the resting green sea turtles at Hookipa Beach Park. This combo fly/drive tour was the best! We saw things we never would have noticed if driving ourselves, and of course the helicopter tour showed us things it would have taken days of hiking to get to.
it was an awesome experience! Sue the van driver was incredible. We had a lot of fun!
Fue una experiencia increible. La conductora Sue de la van fue genial. Nos divertimos mucho. Recomendable.
What a fabulous tour! We knew we had to do the Road to Hana, but letting someone else take the wheel is the way to go. We saw all the sites, learned a ton from our awesome guide Michael, and topped it off with the most breathtaking views I have ever seen in my life in the helicopter. This is the way to see Maui. We loved it!!!
Talk about breathtaking - you haven't seen Maui until you've seen it from the air. It was truly magical.
The helicopter tour was very nice. It was a windy/rainy day so our pilot took us a different direction so we could still see the sites. Very professionally run from beginning to end. Highly recommend this tour
Our driver on the Road to Hana was very informative and drove carefully. The helicopter ride was amazing!!
This was a marvelous tour of Maui to see the real Hawaii. Our biggest kudos go to our helicopter pilot, Tim and driver, Wayne. Their knowledge level was quite impressive. No question was asked that could not be answered. The lunch provided was excellent and placed on white linens as advertised. I would highly recommend this trip.
Great tour and helicopter ride. Particularly enjoyed ride back from Hana......guide was great and showed us things we would have never seen on our own.
Wow, amazing both in the air and ground tours. The guides were great and knew the area extremely well. Would do it again on other trip!
Our pilot gave us a very smooth ride to Hana while showing us the crater, waterfalls and the awesome aqueduct system used to water the crops. Our driver, Michael was a wealth of knowledge about the island having lived in Hawaii over 30 years. He was very flexible and made sure we got to see and do everything we wanted on the road back from Hana. He brought us to many places we would have never thought to stop. Most were not labeled on the road. Lunch was delicious and very fresh. Wear your swimsuits, bring towels and change of clothes. We left at 11:45 and were back by 5:30. This is the only way to do the road to Hana
