COVID-19 UPDATE: WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!!!

It has been a really long (and weird) year for many of us, but life is getting back to normal–almost! Please check the official state’s COVID website for detailed information on traveling to Maui.

We have resumed operations and are now offering all our Haleakala tours and Custom itineraries with our Mercedes Sprinter van. We have temporarily suspended our popular Road to Hana tours until we are again fully staffed and have been able to replace our trusty SUV “Ella,” who retired from the fleet. Please give us a call at (844) 550-6284 to discuss in more detail.

Exclusive Custom Tours with a Private Guide

Road to Hana Private Tours

The Ultimate Maui Day Trip

Never has any road better exemplified the saying “It’s all about the journey, not the destination” than the Road to Hana… Famous for its 600+ hairpin blind curves, 58 one-lane bridges, breathtaking coastal views, countless waterfalls, lush rainforest, black sand beach, lava tubes, and yummy local treats. This is the ultimate road trip that you won’t want to drive yourself.

Avoid the crowds, explore at your own pace, and don’t miss any of the highlights, as you learn about Maui with your very own private guide.

Haleakala Private Tours

Discover Maui’s “House of the Sun”

Towering at just over 10,000 feet above sea level, the summit of Haleakala sits above the clouds, and quite literally takes your breath away. The air is thin, the 360° views of Maui and surrounding islands are stunning, you encounter the unique alien-looking silversword, and feel like you’re walking on the moon.

With your own private guide, discover Maui’s dormant volcano on a mellow sightseeing tour, put your hiking shoes on and hit the trails into Haleakala’s “crater”, or grab binoculars and go looking for some of Hawaii’s most amazing native birds.

West Maui, Upcountry, and Other Custom Private Tours

From mild to wild, explore everything Maui has to offer

Adventure around West Maui, discover the historical town of Lahaina, jump off a cliff into crystal clear waters, treat your tastebuds to delicious local food, visit a tropical plantation or distillery, take a chocolate & coffee or pineapple tasting tour, marvel at the sweeping views, or just tour around Maui’s mellow countryside.

If you have any specific itineraries or activities in mind for your party, we will happily craft a custom-tailored tour just for you.

Birding Tours

The perfect day for bird and wildlife enthusiasts

We joined forces with our sister company Explore Maui Nature in 2019 to bring you the only birding tours on Maui!

Whether you’re a hardcore “lister” or an enthusiastic bird lover, join one of our private Maui Birding tours to look for birds that call Maui their home (or seasonal residence!). You can also embark on a Bird Lovers’ Road to Hana tour, or contact us to create a custom itinerary to find your target species.

From the waterfall views (and swim) to the bamboo hike to the tide pools to the giant sea turtles, it was fabulous from end to end. And Laura had a perfect amount of energy and knowledge.
