Why Tour With Us?

We’re professionals!

We might be a small, locally owned and operated business, but we take your safety, enjoyment, and education seriously! Our guides are highly trained professionals, with certifications from the National Association of Interpretation, The Hawaii Tourism Authority, and the Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness trainings, aside from the obvious First Aid and CPR.

We care!

We care about Maui and its local community & environment-sustainability is at the core of our values and mission. From donating one tree planting for each tour we lead, to offering reusable stainless steel water bottles, to volunteering our time and donating tours to local fundraisers, we’re always looking for ways to give back and protect our precious resources. We’re the only certified Sustainable Tour Operator offering exclusively private tours on Maui.

Over a thousand happy customers and counting!

Don’t take our word for it, and check what other travelers like yourself have to say about their day touring with us! Just let us know what you want, and we’ll strive to recommend and deliver a tour that is uniquely customized for you and your group, for the best day of your vacation!

We’re not called Unique Maui Tours by accident!

Here are a few things that make a tour with us really “unique”:

You feel like a VIP in our large luxury SUV

Our faithful “Ella” has air conditioning front and rear, leather seats, a moon roof, and plenty of leg space for up to 7 passengers. With the high seating position and the wide windows, you’ll also have better views than in the usual mini-vans most private tour companies offer.

You explore secluded areas inaccessible to others

We will take you to spots that large tour groups can’t go to, and drive on roads where rental cars are not allowed, so you get the best of both worlds! And we do the heavy lifting of driving while you kick back and just enjoy the ride.

You feel like a local for the day!

Our guides treat you like their own family and will share with you their favorite spots and stories. We do not get kickbacks from local businesses, so we only take you to the places we genuinely love and only if you want to! Meet your Guide!

You are in good hands

Our guides are fit, well-trained, first aid and CPR certified, experienced drivers on Maui roads, veterans of customer service, and our company is fully insured and permitted by the Public Utilities Commission, as required by law (PUC #4935C).

You are in control

It’s YOUR special day, and you get to decide where and when to stop, how long to stay, what to do… Your private guide will make suggestions to help you decide and keep an eye on the time, but you’re the boss!

You make a difference

We are committed to offset our carbon emissions by sponsoring a local tree planting project, and we regularly volunteer our time and part of our profits to local community and conservation organizations.

We are mindful of the local culture, do not trespass nor litter, and are proud to have obtained the rigorous Sustainable Tourism Certification from the Hawaii Ecotourism Association in summer 2018. Learn more about our commitment.

But don’t take our word for it, and read our reviews!

  • 5 star ratingA driving tour without the driving We did the "Best of Hana" tour with Laura and it was great. 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.

    5 star ratingAn amazing way to experience the Road to Hana Our guide Delphine made The Road To Hana even more special with her great suggestions, stories, and overall cheerfulness. She showed us the highlights we researched ourselves and also some hidden gems that you have to experience to believe. The tour was SO worth it to anyone considering taking the plunge.
