$160.92 BOOK NOW
Polynesian Adventure Tours is the largest provider of Sightseeing Tours on Maui. They have more tours on Maui than any competitor, by far. Polynesian Adventure Tours span all of Hawaii and have the most experience on the Road to Hana. One of the best things about the tour to Hana with a guided group is the lack of crowds. Even though you are with other people in your tour group, that is pretty much it. The points of interest along the highway that Polynesian Adventure Tours Road to Hana tour stops at are completely different than the ones the independent sightseer stops at. And they are usually the first ones there, so you’re off to the next spot when the area is becoming crowded. Keanae Peninsula is a particularly fascinating stop along the way. With its church steeple jutting up to the heavens, it’s the highest structure in town. The village is old and looks the same way it has for hundreds of years. Looking down at it from the overlook, it’s like a green hand that extends to the ocean, providing life, like it has always done for those who live there. For the most part the residence of Keanae farm taro and fish. Polynesian Adventure Tours Road to Hana tour will take you to many amazing places.
Cut off from the world of high tech, a cell phone usually doesn’t work on the Hana Highway, there are no hot spots for WIFI and the radio in a car receives only static. In many cases, convenience doesn’t exist. Well only if you’re a mainlander. For the people that call the Hana Highway home, it’s a Spartan life. Yet, it’s a life rich in family and things to do. Polynesian Adventure Tours does not stop at Waianapanapa State Park unless it’s by request then its time allowed. They do stop in Hana Town. Here you will get to see what time has forgotten. Or as the residences of Hana prefer to think as, “A simpler way of life”. Life in Hana hasn’t changed much in the last 30 years if it has changed at all. Life comes and goes as it always has, slowly.
In Hana Bay, there is a trail that leads from the only dock out to the point. It’s a nice little hike. At the end of the point is a small lighthouse that signals the entrance to Hana Bay. I have always found this little trail peaceful. The trail itself is well worn with a few ups and downs, but the end of the path lies the rough beauty that makes this part of the world so special. A place where time has little or no value.
Due to the remoteness of the area, many stars, celebrities, and wealthy people have built estates tucked away behind the walls of the rainforest looking to escape the world from time to time. We have always referred to Hana as the other side of nowhere because there is nothing there. Today, there is still nothing there. I suspect it will always remain so as the people who live there, do not want to catch up with the world, rather they would be left behind to the ruralness of life.
Take a day and join us for a tour of the Hana Highway with the most respected touring company in all of Hawaii. At the end of the day, you will be hooked on Maui for life!

Our guide (Michael?) was great and knew lots of facts about Haleakalā and the wildlife. Funny guy, too. The trip itself is very comfortable in a new, plush tour van. Hotel pickup and drop off is a great feature if you don’t have a rental car. The dinner was nice, but be aware that the ticket price doesn’t not include soft drinks. (Not terribly unreasonable, but assuming this tour company brings their sunset groups here all of the time, the restaurant could include the soft drinks.) Highly recommended tour of the crater and views of sunset! Dress warmly as the temps at the summit drop quickly.
Instead of driving the road to Hana on our own, we decided on this all-day tour; it was definitely the best choice! So, so many rental cars on that winding narrow road! Our driver and guide, Sale, was the best. He provided a safe ride and ongoing commentary on what we were seeing and the history behind it all. The tour included breakfast and lunch and many stops along the way for photo opportunities. I strongly recommend this!
We had a great time learning about the beautiful Island of Maui. Peaches was so friendly, funny, knowledgeable and such an amazing driver. The tour bus was comfortable but wish it had bigger windows. My window had a side panel which made it difficult to take pictures. We enjoyed the continental breakfast and lunch that came with our package. We highly recommend this tour.
Our driver, Wayne, with Polynesian Adventure Tours was amazing. He was prompt in picking up us, called when he arrived and gave us a few minutes to gather our things. He was knowledgeable and answered all questions during the tour. We were able to stop along the way and take pictures. I would definitely take this tour again and recommend it to friends and family. When booking, I do wish I was informed that I could get car sick on the drive up the mountain so I could have taken something prior to the trip.
Larry was very professional. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. The views were breathtaking and spectacular. We are glad we took the tour. However, the tour was a little long for us. There were 6 in my party. We are all senior citizens and felt the 3 hour leg of the tour without a restroom break was too long. Also, the aisles of the tour bus are too narrow and the seats small. There was very little leg room which was uncomfortable.
