We believe the Road to Hana is a two-day minimum experience. And in all honesty, you could spend a week out there. Don't get us wrong! The one-day private tour is exceptional and loved by many, but this trip allows you to experience that much more of the raw, lush, natural habitat East Maui has to offer without being time-sensitive to the road. Delve deeper into the unplugged island lifestyle, discover more hidden gems, spend time in your favorite places with no rush! And visit popular places with far fewer people, first thing in the morning or later in the day! While unwinding and de-stressing from modern-day living. 


Accommodations are a separate fee and handled on a case by cases basis, whether you prefer Hana-Maui Resort, a cozy vacation rental, or camping. Please contact us for additional information or to make arrangements.
