With Spring Break in full swing, and Summer Break around the corner, families from all over the world will soon be making their way to Maui for a little fun, sun, and exploration! Travel trends show that it’s not just moms, dads, and kids that are packing up for vacations anymore, but grandparents, aunts and uncles, and more extended family members will be joining in! So, if you’re one of the thousands of multi-generational traveling groups this summer, you might be wondering which tours are best for you. Read on, family traveler!
This is one of our favorite tours for families, for so many reasons. First off, everyone loves a helicopter! A thirty-six-minute flightseeing tour above Haleakala and the Road to Hana will be memorable for the whole family—and probably play a key role in some “What I Did on my Summer Vacation” essays come September. The land portion of the tour, in a Luxury Limo-Van, will include something for everyone too—swimming at a waterfall, a tour of a tropical flower farm, a visit to the black-sand beach, and a tasty picnic lunch. Finally, this tour is a half-day adventure. Your family can choose to sleep in, and join us on the 11:15 slot, or take the early 7:00 AM tour and have time for another adventure (or a nap!) afterward.
One challenge with traveling with a big family? Not everyone’s always down to do the same things. If some members of your family are a little iffy on the idea of a helicopter, or if you’re looking to save a little money during your trip, check out our Hana Picnic tour! This is a relaxing, full-day journey to and from Hana on one of our Luxury Limo-Vans, with plenty of time for stopping, sightseeing, swimming, and enjoying the rainforest. Sit down to a beach-side picnic lunch, take a dip in a waterfall pool, and enjoy learning about Hawaiian culture, history, geology, and more from your Hawaii-Certified Tour Guide!
While some folks might think twice about taking kids on this journey, we would really recommend it! For most US-based travelers, you’ll still be a few hours ahead, time-zone-wise, when you get here, and the early wake-up won’t be such a challenge. Your kids might be up anyway! Every generation in your family will enjoy the peaceful setting of Haleakala before dawn, and of course, the incredible show of light and color that make this attraction so popular for Sunrise. Afterward, we know everyone will be hungry, and the crowd-pleasing menu at the Kula Lodge has something for everybody!
When your travel group consists of all ages, we know that there can be some unique challenges—and don’t worry! We’re here to help. Mobility challenges, dietary needs, and more can be accommodated as much as possible, and there’s always a friendly Reservations Agent here to answer all your questions. Give us a call at 1-800-817-1234, and we can help your family pick the perfect luxury tours for your Maui stay!
