Road to Hana Tours – Which one is for you?

Temptation Tours - Hana Cave-Quest - Rainforest Waterfall

Views like this– beautiful waterfalls cascading over lush foliage– are in store no matter which tour you choose.

Like I’ve mentioned before, everyone seems to think you HAVE to do the Road to Hana while you’re on Maui. You have to! Well, I’m going to have to agree with them. There’s a reason all your friends have come back from Maui going on and on about the Road to Hana—it really is that spectacular. I don’t use this word often, but there is something “magical” about the Road to Hana. That “magic” element is that the Road to Hana can be whatever you want it to be, and it can be something different to everyone.

How does a fun, entertaining drive through the rainforest sound, full of plenty of time for swimming, taking family photos, and a laid-back picnic lunch on the beach? You’re looking for the Hana Picnic, one of our classic Road to Hana Tours. Don’t worry about organizing everyone, packing lunches, getting your maps straight—just grab your swimsuit, camera, and meet us right outside your hotel. We’ll do the rest! If your idea of a vacation is spending quality, stress-free time with your family, make a reservation for a Hana Picnic, and join our Hawaii Certified Tour Guide on a fun, relaxing journey of a lifetime.

Temptation Tours - Waianapanapa-001

A beautiful view of Waianapanapa, including the incredible black-sand beach.

Maybe that sounds great, but you’re looking to get a little more out of your Road to Hana tour—a little more adventure, something unique. The tour for you is the Hana Cave-Quest, a more “in-depth” (pardon my pun!) experience of the Hana coast. After the famous journey through the rainforest, journey into ancient lava tubes that take you underneath the forest floor. If you have an appreciation for the incredible capabilities of nature, you’ll be in awe of Madame Pele’s power to carve huge caverns, complete with stalactites and stalagmites jutting from the ceiling and floor of this all-natural wonder. Not a big hiker? Don’t worry—it’s an easy walk, and features a handrail throughout. Just take your time in appreciating this unique destination—one that you may have never even thought existed!

Maybe your Road to Hana vision is a little different. Sure, you’re excited about experiencing the unparalleled beauty of the rainforest, but you’re on vacation to relax, and you came to Maui to relax in style and comfort. If you want a tour that blends seamlessly into your luxury vacation, you want the Hana Ultimate. Step out of your hotel and onto our Luxury-Limo Van, and you’ll be treated to the Road to Hana tour you’ve always dreamed of. Start with a run-of-the-menu restaurant breakfast in the distinctive, trendy town of Paia. With a Hawaii Certified Tour Guide as your escort, experience the rainforest first hand. Like the Hana Picnic, you’ll experience multiple stops for exploring, but luxury is truly key for this exceptional tour. The highlight: a gourmet, three-course luncheon at the Hana Travaasa, Hana’s lush resort. If you thought the road to Hana was “roughing it,” consider joining us for the Hana Ultimate, and get a truly VIP experience.

Kapalua Ridge Trek

All right. You’ve had a few glorious days of sleeping (very) late in your hotel or condo. You’ve laid out by the beach. You’ve definitely checked off “relax” on your vacation to-do list. Now, how about “have an adventure”?

We’re going to recommend the Kapalua Ridge Trek to fulfill that particular need. It’s another of our newest tours, and it’s definitely a true adventure.

The highlight is the Kapalua Bridge, which is the longest suspension bridge in the state. Furthermore, as it takes you over Kaopala Gulch, 200 feet above ground, it’s the highest pedestrian-only bridge in the United States. It’s a state-of-the-art structure, from which you’ll get incredible ocean views, and even see neighboring islands in the distance. You’ll also catch glimpses of nearby zip-liners as they fly across this scenic gulch.

On the Kapalua Ridge Trek, you’ll start your day with pick-up from your hotel, and your Hawaii State Certified Tour Guide will take you on your way to Kapalua in style. In an exclusive, eight-passenger luxury Limo-Van, you’ll get truly VIP treatment as you enjoy ice cold bottled water and tropical fruit juices. Your Tour Guide will talk about the history, landscape, and culture particular to this part of Maui, and you’ll truly connect with the land once you start your moderate one-mile nature trail walk on the beautiful Kapalua Ridge.

After an invigorating trail walk, settle in for a delicious Pacific Rim Cuisine picnic lunch. Your tour guide will take care of everything as you eat, relax, and marvel over your pictures you took from the bridge and the trail.

To finish up your West Maui day, your tour guide will take you to the Napili Kai beach, where you can swim, lounge in the sand, or even take a stroll to the beach-side bar for a tropical beverage.

If you’re looking for a shorter tour, a chance to really explore Maui’s natural beauty, and a stop at a pristine beach, we really think you’ll love the Kapalua Ridge Trek. Again, it’s a new tour for Temptation Tours, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
