Road to Hana Done Right
The Road to Hana tops most Maui visitors’ lists. But the trip is long and there are so many amazing stops. Let a local guide show you around while you enjoy the world-famous scenic tour of beautiful East Maui.
Why not take an unusual opportunity to treat yourself while on Maui? Avoid feeling exhausted from driving all day on the 68-mile Road to Hana.
The 600+ turns, 50+ one-lane bridges, and occasional rock or mudslides creates enormous stress and often exhaustion when you don’t know the territory. Hana itself is all about de-stressing, which is why Maui residents vacation there. Letting someone else take care of the driving is the best way to see the famous Road to Hāna and the surrounding area without the added stress of driving it yourself.

Should you use a guide or DIY for the Hana Highway?
The Hawaii Tourism Authority is encouraging visitors to hire a local guide to help them navigate the Road to Hana. Traffic and illegal parking have become an issue along the famous route. Tour guides can help relieve this issue. Not only is using a tour guide recommended, but it will also help make your trip more pleasant. There is a lot to learn on the route and an experienced tour guide can help you get the most out of this long journey.

The guide will make multiple stops throughout the day based on your group’s interests, local history, cultural importance, or simply because it is so beautiful, you have to get out and look closer.
The tour makes a stop to enjoy lunch in Hana which is included in your tour.
They make stops at beach overlooks, Waianapanapa State Park (black sand beach swim), a place to swim in a waterfall pool and so much more. They even stop to watch the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles too!
