Our complete Road to Hana Tour, a full day trip featuring Maui’s waterfalls, black sand beaches, the “Seven Sacred Pools”, the townsite of Hana and enjoy engaging stories of Hawaiian culture and history on the return journey.
Make your way up to Haleakala Crater for a sunrise, sunset or midday view you’ll won’t soon forget. A Mars-like landscape with cinder cones, silverswords, endangered Nene geese, views of the Pacific Ocean and other Hawaiian Islands from 10,000 feet.
Travel to the windward West Maui side of the island, and the towns of Ka’anapali, Kapalua, Lahaina. Highlights on that drive include the huge sea cliffs at Ohai Overlook and the Nakalele Blowhole.
Head to Iao Valley, one of the wettest places on earth with its photogenic rock needle. You’ll hear stories about why this is an incredibly important historical site for Hawaii.
Drive through South Maui’s swanky resort areas of Kihei, Wailea and Makena. Swim at Makena’s Big Beach, and snorkel in turtle town coves, or continue just a little further to where the last lava flow from Haleakala reshaped Maui’s coastline. Keep watch for humpback whales during the migration months of Dec-May.
Maui’s beauty is obvious, but when you uncover the stories, culture and history, you’ll truly connect with the Valley Isle.

LISTEN TO A SAMPLE COMMENTARY – MAUI
Where does the tour start?
The All Maui App includes complete tours to Road to Hana, Haleakala, Iao Valley, West and South Maui, so you can join anywhere along the the designated routes and the commentary will play as you drive through the arrows. There is no set “beginning” to this tour, simply join the route at the nearest place to you.
The app uses your location, so you don’t need to enter or select a specific tour. Directions are included in the commentary, for eg. turn right to continue onto Haleakala Summit, or continue straight for Road to Hana.
What should I bring?
We always recommend taking a DC style (cigarette) charger with you. Charging by directly plugging into the vehicle’s USB port is not recommended.
Fill up your gas tank and bring some food & drinks.
Don’t forget your smile and some Aloha.
Road to Hana. Cash – there are limited ATMs and some places don’t accept credit cards.
Haleakala. Bring warm layer clothes. The summit is often very cold!
Does the Maui App include the Road to Hana?
Yes, the Maui App includes our complete Road to Hana tour, as well as extra tours to Haleakala, West Maui, South Maui, and Iao Valley.
Do I need cell service?
No. Only the free GPS signal is needed while driving. This signal does not come from cellular networks, so it is always available. This works great because there are parts of the island that do not have cell service. And you can even leave your cellular data turned off and the tour will still function.
