What To Expect

This guided tour of the Hana Highway has photo ops around every turn, from thundering waterfalls and sweeping vistas to rural towns by the coast. Visit areas like Pai’a, Keanae, Wailua Falls, and Pua’a Ka’a State Park, and make a stop at Wai’anapanapa State Park—home to a black sand beach.

Aside from the unforgettable sights, you’ll hear how Hana has played an important role in Hawaii’s history, from being the birthplace of Queen Ka’ahumanu to home of the island’s first resort. Nearly 5,000 people inhabit the district from Keanae to Kipahulu, which generally falls under the “Hana district” that visitors know it today.

Hana Highway - Road to Hana

It's all about the journey on the Road to Hana, traveling in style and comfort along cascading waterfalls, scenic lush vistas and windy roads. You'll return along the same coastal drive on reverse, but with a different perspective.

12 hours Admission Ticket Included

Beautiful scenery and tour driver was entertaining. Very fun. Well worth booking tour. It wouldn't be as enjoyable to drive the winding road.
More than we expected
Elizabeth_C, Dec 2022
Our driver, Sale, was fabulous and stopped at all the places we wanted to see and the some! The bus was comfortable and we were picked up at our hotel, so no extra driving. I would highly recommend.
David_M, Dec 2022
My wife & I had the pleasure of spending the day with our guide Sale’. He was very entertaining, knowledgeable & pleasant. He pointed out many interesting sights, plants & history. Continental breakfast, a delicious lunch & snacks included. We did a trip to Hana 10 yrs ago but this trip made more stops & many at places we had not seen before. Highly recommend this trip with Polynesian Tours. Very interesting, affordable & thoroughly entertaining!
It IS worth it!
hopperrose, Dec 2022
I don't think you have to go back and forth about which tour to pick. Simply, pick this one with Polynesian Tours! We were blessed to have Sale as our tour guide. He made sure we got every nook of Road to Hana and really made the money we spent worth it. Sale has immense knowledge of Maui and everything on the road to Hana. Little things as simple as where to get the "I survived the Road to Hana" and he took us to places we are so grateful we ended up stopping at. If you want to make every penny count please make sure you book your trip with Polynesian Tours and with Sale! Thanks Sale for this great experience!

Meeting new people,stopping at the waterfall/ beach/ getting some fresh coconuts/ icecream and stopping to take pics.
Wa_N, Oct 2022
Rainbow eucalyptus were fascinating . The lush rainforest was truly amazing relative to the dry side. Would have been adequate to go halfway. Really nothing in Hana

Thank you for posting your feedback - we are glad you enjoyed your tour. Mahalo!
Best group tour of our lifetime
Jasmine_S, Jul 2022
Our driver explained all the significant places, exercised patience, and kept the group engaged throughout the entire experience. It was our 26th anniversary and he made us feel super special
Book your trip to Hana with no regrets!
Ann_J, Jul 2022
I want to start by saying our driver Ed was amazing! The road to Hana is not an easy drive and I felt safe the whole time which to me is most important. It was a great time, we hit all the promised stops and the hot pizza lunch at Hana Farms was the cherry on top. Like all tours I just wish there was more time at the black sand beach and waterfalls but Ed made great use of the time we had and we are satisfied. I definitely recommend this tour to family and friends!
One of the greatest experience we have so far
Tauqueer_N, Jun 2022
We have a great experience and I recommend everyone specially the first timers to Maui to try this tour. Our driver ‘Saleh’ was superb, besides being vocal and entertaining he is pretty knowledgeable of Maui history and personally he’s pretty kind and affectionate. Also, the stops OMG can’t explain in words how beautiful and soul soothing it was.

Just the experience. Love the natural beauty of the road to Hana. Lunch was excellent The stops were well planned
Not recommended, and misleading advertising - DOES NOT GO FULL CIRCLE.
Sharon_K, Feb 2022
Falsely advertised. This tour DOES NOT go all around the full circle and it skipped a few stops advertised on this itinerary as a result (the ones at the end of the trip). At the beginning of the tour, the driver stopped at Safeway to tell everyone that this tour does not go full circle. There were some very unhappy people on this bus. I think it is totally unfair to set expectations and sell this tour with false advertising. Some people like me, booked the tour under the assumption that this went full circle. Several people on the tour had the same assumption and we would have booked another tour that went full circle had we known. We had no choice by the time we found out and it sounded like the tour guide encounters these 'surprised clients' on every tour if he felt like he needed to announce this every time. He said it is not his fault and he is only the driver. It also sounded like from what he said, the main cause of this was the size of the van holding 22 + people. Other smaller companies transport less than 10 people in smaller vans and thus can go all the way around. This is not our problem. We paid for what we thought we were going to see and it is Polynesian Adventure Tours that has to take responsibility, make a little less money and divide that tour group into 2 or 3. They are charging higher than tour companies that only take 6 or 8 people . NOT RECOMMENDED. You will be sitting all day long, and that is expected of a day trip to Hana but the problem was we had a tour guide, Salesi who, despite his best intentions, dragged the day on for longer than required because he chose to tell personal and irrelevant soporific stories that no one was really interested in. Two other couples vented their frustration to me as well and I was glad I was not alone. There was another couple on the bus who seemed to be on the 'same page' as the tour guide and thus the husband of this couple and the guide kept exchanging personal stories about race, where they were born etc and held the entire bus at stops because they would not stop going on about their own stories and having their own conversations. It got to a point where one couple had to tell the driver to start the van and keep moving and I had to tell the guy to sit down and stop talking. It was a bit of a painful day with an itinerary cut short, endless gibberish stories and then to top the icing on the cake, we had to stop at a carpark at the end of the day to change buses to get back to our hotel. Another company who picked up passengers at our hotel at the same time got back 1.5 hrs earlier. Go figure.

Thank you for the feedback, we are sorry to hear that your expectations weren't met. We've shared your comments with our management team. Mahalo and we hope you had a nice time in the islands.
Must do in Maui
Navin_T, Jan 2022
What a memorable road trip to Hana rainforest. Amazing and memorable views through-out. The tour driver Sale made great effort to explain a lot about Hawaii customs, and unique flora and fauna. Very friendly and helpful. There was so much to do and see. My family's favorite stops were the black sand beach and fresh waterfall pool.
Ride with Peko first for the real "Ohana" experience
Bridgette_W, Dec 2021
Our driver Peko was phenomenal. He was so engaging, he knew so much and we were in awe of the word "family" bestowed upon is. We don't want to do "road to hana" without his knowledge ever again. A true talent. Mahalo Peko
Top notch trip!!
Michael_M, Oct 2021
OUTSTANDING trip!!! Our tour guide was fabulous and truly made this trip top notch!! Thank you Peko (our group called him “Sam”) for giving us the road to Hana history and your proud personal family history.
A Very beautiful ride
Juan_G, Aug 2021
Seeing all the beautiful vegetation, beaches, falls with my wife and son. Black beach was the best. Salesian the guide was very informative and kind.
Unforgettable Experience!!!
Marchena_C, Aug 2021
This tour was an amazing experience. I will be booking with them again the next time I'm in Maui. Before booking with Polynesian Adventures, I checked out a few other tours for the Road to Hana. The other tours were either ridiculously expensive or would not allow solo travelers. Theirs was just right. They coordinated transportation to and from my hotel which was smooth. Our driver and guide was Peko who was a 20 year vet and expert at driving the narrow, winding Road to Hana. Peko was hilarious and friendly and on the way to Hana he would tell us interesting facts about each destination and major sight. He gave us so much extra time at each stop to take photos, get food, and soak in the experience. Thank you Peko for the amazing customer service. Thank you for Polynesian Adventures for this awesome tour! This is perfect if you're a solo traveler.
