Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A well-organized day trip from Oahu featuring can't-miss Maui sights: spectacular views from the summit of Mt Haleakala, the emerald-green ridges of Iao Valley State Park and expansive fields of sugarcane.
Select the option of pickup at your Oahu hotel or make your way to the Honolulu airport to catch the 45-minute flight to Maui.

Upon touchdown in Maui, meet your local guide and transfer to your air-conditioned coach. The tour's first stop is the Haleakala Crater, up a winding road that ascends 10,000 vertical feet in just 37 miles (60 kilometers). As you drive, peek out the windows at the fantastic views of Maui's west side and listen to your guide's commentary about the history and geology of the island.

Disembark to see the volcano's gigantic crater — 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, 7.5 miles (12 km) long and 3,000 feet (915 meters) deep. This dormant volcano last erupted in 1790, but the landscape around the crater is still bare and free of vegetation. Chilly temps at the summit mean you might want a jacket or sweater on hand.

Head down from the barren otherworldliness of Mt Haleakala to the vibrant jade rainforest of the Iao Valley. At the Iao Needle, an unusual rock formation, you'll have 60 minutes to explore the area's waterfalls and swimming holes on foot via an easy hiking trail. Stop for lunch (own expense) midday.

Travel to the charming town of Wailuku, where you'll have time to walk around at your leisure and check out the historic Ka'ahamanu Church.

After a solid 8 hours of exploring Maui's highlights, return to the airport for your flight back to Oahu.

This was the most amazing trip. It covered all areas of Maui. Was picked up on time and dropped off. Our tour guide knew everything about Maui (being a local) the bus was comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see these highlights of Maui.

The tour covered a lot of ground in Mauai. The road to Haleakalo was very long and windy, which should have been mentioned for those that get travel sickness. The lunch stop although the food was delicious, other options nearby could be mentioned as an alternative to a full expensive meal, with added in gratuities to the bill. The stop to Old Lahaina we wish had of been longer as this was a very pretty town with great shops.

The waterfall is a real let down after the excitement of flying over the volcano and seeing the flowing lava. The helicopter ride was cool and worth doing overall.

Half of the trip waste by lunch and sending some people back to their hotel. The 9 hours trip only 4 hours were worthy.

Highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Judy was great, she was very knowledgeable. Maui is different from Waikiki, not as hectic, at a much slower pace. Beautiful surroundings.
