This year has been and will be a year for the history books. We all feel the multiple challenges and amazement of nine months of a worldwide pandemic. So many people have stepped up to help their fellow humans.
Now that Hawai’i has opened again to visitors, we at Temptation Tours find ourselves grateful as always and counting our blessings.
We are grateful for so Much!
We have been sharing our island home of Maui with locals, visitors, and their families for 37 Years. It has indeed been our greatest honor to intertwine our business with our most important blessing, the gift of Aloha.
The gift of Aloha. A gift from the heart.
We have never lost sight of the folks who have committed and worked tirelessly to fulfill the mission of Temptation Tours. So that people around the world could come here and feel the amazement and joy we feel daily. These are the folks who make it all happen.
Therefore, we want to share our gratitude in this Blog, so that you can know how grateful we are for our entire ‘ohana (family) here at Temptation Tours.
First, We Are Grateful to Our Awesome Baseyard Crew
These dedicated, hard-working folks take pride in every aspect of keeping our Luxury Limo-Vans safe, reliable, clean, and running in top shape.
Here are a few of the favorable, 5-star comments we receive regularly:
“The van was super nice and a very comfortable ride.”
“Took a Temptation Tours excursion in a Limo-van, which was nicely appointed, very clean, and an extremely comfortable ride.”
“Thought we would get motion sickness, but the Limo-Van drove like a breeze!”
“The windows of the van are so clean that it seemed like you could reach out and touch the foliage.”
It’s easy to tell that our base yard team is one of the pillars on which Temptation Tours immense popularity rests. They are our secret weapon for making sure our customers have a fabulous experience.
Now, with our updated practice of our Safeguard Promise, the base yard team is working double time for the safety and well-being of our guests.
Next, The Nerve-Center of the Operation, our Outstanding Office Staff!
Our exceptional office staff is the ones who achieve the impossible day after day, creating a flawless, harmonious experience for every guest as they:
- Dispatch Tour Guides
- Take phone calls for reservations, questions, rescues, and, for Dave.
- Handle the unexpected with grace: last-minute cancellations, late customers, and occasional mix-ups. Any crazy scenario you can imagine, they take care of it with professionalism and the Aloha spirit.
- Coordinate all the interweaving action between tours-in-progress, tour guides, helicopter flights, ship schedules, and Dave!

These special people genuinely love helping and serving others. Our ‘ohana of tour guides is the public face of Temptation Tours.
They love their work as guides so much sometimes it’s hard to get them to take a day off. Imagine being that excited about your work!

“Tour Guide was the ultimate host!”
“We immediately felt like a family member as soon as we got on board the van with our guide.”
