Maui visitors who wish to learn more abut the island’s culture, food, and fauna but don’t want to drive through the 617 hairpin curves and 54 one-lane bridges to Hana, can opt to tour the island’s most famous road in style with Valley Isle Excursions.
The luxury tour company offers an all-day excursion to Hana in a comfortable, air-conditioned cruiser with reclining seats and elevated views. The tour includes tropical rainforests, stunning waterfalls, bamboo jungles, a stop at the Seven Sacred Pools, a visit at Wainanapanapa State Park’s black beach, and the upcountry and Halekala side of the island.
Throughout the tour, guests learn about Maui’s culture, food, and vegetation while viewing pineapple, taro, and sugar cane fields. The tour also provides stops at Hana Farmstand for purchases of local homemade banana bread, jams, honey, strawberry papayas, and coffee. A Pacific Rim-inspired lunch of grilled herb marinated chicken, Kula organic mixed greens, roasted corn and black bean relish, and a pasta salad is also included.
