If you book anymore tours with Valley Isle Excursions be sure to request Charlie as the tour guide for your customers. He was fabulous! His humor was very much enjoyed by my family and myself! He made unscheduled stops and gave us great facts as we went on the trip. Flossie did cause some disruptions but he worked around them and gave us a great day.

The best tour in Maui. They pick you up from hotel & you have a nice breakfast. Vans are comfortable too with only 12 people allowed in them. Windows are big enough for everyone to see out. Tour guides are awesome & entertaining & really know their culture & history. They are also safe drivers. I will be doing this tour again someday

We had a great day on our Road to Hana with Valley Isle Excursions. Our tour guide for the day was John who did an amazing job. He took us too many different sites for amazing views of Maui and was very informative. We also, went completely around and honestly the views were even more beautiful than on our way to Hana. The lunch provided was delicious and more than we expected it to be. We had many stops for perfect photo ops. Our driver even bought all the women on our excursion a Maui wooden bracelet as a souvenir. The bus was very comfortable and being only 12 very personal. Highly recommended!

Michael Miller
The Road to Hana tour was the most interesting and entertaining part of our trip to Maui this time around. We all appreciated the great story that went along with the tour and the knowledge of the driver was incredible. It really helped us appreciate our visit that much more.

Matthias Wendt
Very nice and interesting tour, was happy not going for it with my rental.

Deleen Morrison
We were so glad we opted to do the Road to Hana on a tour as it gave my husband the chance to enjoy the beautiful view along with the rest of our party of 4. It's nicknamed 'Divorce Highway' for a reason, the road is nerve-wracking to drive and I am glad someone else was doing the driving. The views along the way are beautiful, so many amazing waterfalls and beaches. The light breakfast and picnic lunch provided were great and just enough for a day full of winding roads. We loved the fact the tour goes all the way around as you get to see the wonderful diverse landscape of Maui. Highly recommend this tour.

Alice ACOSTA-Perez
We had such an amazing time! Highly recommend. Can't wait to do it again next year!

The Hana Classic Tour with Valley Isle Excursions in July 2015 was absolutely sensational in every aspect. The breadth of sights and experiences that we had within a single day was astounding. We were blessed by weather that ranged from pouring rain at the beginning of the Road to Hana to hot desert winds in the part of South Maui that most tourists never see. Our driver, David, had immense experience and handled everything from a road blockage due to a fallen tree, to a stranded driver coming the opposite way on a narrow stretch of road on the side of a cliff, with aplomb. David was very knowledgeable about local history, culture, and geography, and was affable and gracious to all. Lunch was very pleasant and satisfying and the location at Waianapanapa State Park was spectacular. We were unable to swim at the Seven Pools as planned because the morning's heavy rains caused it to be at flood stage, but seeing it and the other numerous waterfalls along the way at high volume more than made up for that for my wife and I. We whole-heartedly recommend this trip, and felt it was completely worth the cost. I suppose it was especially fantastic for us who had never been to Maui before and so had never seen any of those sights before, and so we would particularly recommend it to newcomers. Obviously there's no guarantee that you'll have the amazing conditions and experiences that we had, but even without that, I think it would have been something that we would have enjoyed thoroughly.

Mark Cooper
The Hana Classic Tour was great. We definitely got our money's worth. The tour was almost 9 hours long and we covered the entire Road to Hana. My only negative might be that we didn't get to spend as much time as we might have liked at a couple of stops.. but due to the length of the trip you can understand why. I would highly recommend this tour if you don't want to do the drive yourself.

Mary Brown
Loved this tour. Do not miss this tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and a super nice guy. I'm so glad we chose VI instead of the large crowded buses. O and don't forget to get a loaf of banana bread. Our lunch stop was pretty good. I went back for seconds.

Bruce M
The Hana Classic Tour was a great trip. Our driver was Debra and she did a fantastic job of maneuvering the van through some tough situations. The views and history lessons from this trip were outstanding. Be sure to pass the word that this road is not one for rental vehicles or visitor drivers! So glad we took this trip so everyone could enjoy the views.

Hana tour with Valley Isle is one of the things you would not miss in the Island Maui. The tour goes through some of the amazing waterfalls , very nice beaches and some breath taking scenaries. Very well organised . Guides also give very good information about the island . overall very nice and should not miss.

Leigh Wolff
We are so happy that we had Valley Isle driver Richard drive us on the Hana Road Tour March 2016. He picked us up at our hotel, took us to a breakfast site, drove fearlessly up and down a long windy road in a large van and educated us about the Island of Maui along with Hana Highway. The chicken at lunch was great and that was echoed by all at our table. The views are spectacular. It is hard to image that Maui has so many different scenic areas that you can visit on Hana Highway. Take the tour so you can enjoy the views, you do not worry about the road this way. Valley Isle takes good care of you and takes you home after a day of travel. I definitely recommend this tour.

Kathie Wilson
Absolutely breathtaking! We had the best driver...gave us so much info with lots if humor. Would totally recommend this!

Janet Rogers
This tour is full of history, fun times, and amazing sites of the island! I'd recommend it to be one of your first activities when visiting Maui. We learned so much and wished we had more time later to explore before we had to leave! Thanks Eric for a fun and exciting day!

Rich Sullivan
Our driver, Scott, was knowledgeable, entertaining, and a good driver. The trip was planned well and we had a very nice time.

Patricia Brown
Great experience. First time for me. My husband rented a car with friends in 1988 and took the road to Hana. The van was waiting for us at the ship. The driver was informative and friendly. The tour was as described and was very enjoyable.

Myrtle Moses
Damien was an awesome tour guide!! the tour itself is impeccable

Robert Petty
We had a great time on our Hana Classic Tour. Our driver was very informative on everything on the tour. Our driver's name was 'Walter'.

Heather Denehy
Our tour guide Walter gave my family of 10 an excellent tour!!! We couldn't have been more pleased. He was educated, patient and funny. We are still talking about how he navigated the back part of the road to Hana with such ease and calmness when trying to fit two cars on that narrow road!!

Celestine Taylor
Barry was an excellent tour guide. Great trip. Glad we didn't drive ourselves.

Josie Richards
Mark did a fabulous job as our tour guide. I had some concerns about safety on the Road to Hana, which is why I chose Valley Isle since it was recommended and knowing that our tour guide did not do other tours. I felt like he was a "specialist," and I'm so glad we did not attempt this drive on our own. Mark made us feel safe and comfortable. He provided interesting facts and stories. I'm so glad we took this tour!

Anna Molina
This was the absolute hi-light of our trip to Maui. Our kids loved the tour. It was spectacular, educational, beautiful and one certainly comes away with a sense of wonder at this beautiful island. What made the tour top-notch was our drive Ernie--FABULOUS and went out of his way for every passenger. We would do this again in a heart-beat! Well worth it.

Micah Pazoureck
Our guide Walter was full of great information! We enjoyed the trip, the places we stopped for photos and site seeing. I'm really glad we did not try and drive the road, it was a little scary at times but Walter had everything under control. Not driving also gave us plenty of time to enjoy the scenery. We had a party of 8, ranging from 5 years old to 70, everyone enjoyed the trip.

Bernadette Bourque
A great tour. Started with a light breakfast before we started the trip. The road to Hana is very beautiful and not having to drive ourselves, we both could enjoy it. The road is somewhat of a challenge in areas. Charlie our guide/driver/was both knowledgeable and entertaining. The scenery was quite spectacular. We stopped in Hana for lunch which Charlie served. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Mike McIlwain
Good, very informative tour, but too long (12 hours total for us). Should be shortened to 9-10 hours max.

Randall Lundeen
We had Jack the Legend!!! He was awesome!!! A great storyteller. Very interesting and knowlegable. The best tour guide we've ever had!

Terri Hofer
We had a great time. Our driver, Mark, was a very good driver and had a great sense of humor.

Kathy Platt
Nice tour, great driver - Barry. Enjoyed the trip - lots of great scenery! Food not as good as we expected. Didn't need all of the stops at souvenior places. Coffee stop - spent entire time waiting in line to buy bottles of water. Enjoyed the scenery but not the stops.

Brenda Lessard
We had a great time on the tour. We met some great people and our driver was very knowledgeable, personable and provided great customer service. Glad we did not try to drive the Road to Hana ourselves.

Judy Tully
Good tour, wonderful guide (Deb?) but stated we could call her "Cuz". She was informative and had humorous stories to tell. Good food, wonderful stops along this very narrow/steep road. Would do this trip again and ask for "Cuz" for sure.

Brenda Ott
Excellent 3rd time on this excursion with Valley Isle. Always learn and see something new each time! Drivers are all so knowledgeable and share so much information that you wouldn't get doing the drive yourself! This trip we had extra family with kids along and the driver made sure to make ample stops for hiking and swimming for them! They got to swim in a waterfall and at a black sand beach! The breakfast and lunch provided is always a real treat! Its a ling day (about 11-12 hours door to door) but well worth it!

Nadine Patton
Fabulous! We learned SO much about Maui from our fantastic tour guide, David and stopped at many interesting places. He was a great driver and we felt very comfortable around the 617 curves and 50+one lane bridges. We had a great educational experience about the history and current happenings of Maui. Highly recommend this tour company.

Kathy McKague
Fabulous outing! Scott is like a walking encyclopedia! Even the weather co-operated. Would highly recommend your tour. Van was comfortable with only 12 people. Food was delicious...stops frequent. A great day in Maui!

Kathy McKague
Fabulous tour,excellent guide and driver. Lunch was scrumptious and the scenery spectacular. recommend as the only way to travel to Hana with no stress and the driver gets to enjoy things too.

Dawn Moran
It was excellent! Joe, our bus driver, was the BEST. It was a rainy day but he made it feel like the sun was shining. Such a beautiful trip around the island. Lots of fun and good food, too!

Lori Fehl
It was awesome! You are really missing out if you drive yourself. I know it is pricey but well worth it.

J Purvis
We had a great day on the Road to Hana Tour. Small group. Local guide. Went all of the way around the volcano instead of returning the same way we went.
Good lunch too.

Wendy Jones
The Road to Hana with our knowledgeable, friendly, and funny tour guide - Junior was the highlight of our trip to Maui! We safely were able to see and explore areas of the island we would have missed without choosing this excursion. The information we learned was interesting, the banana bread was amazing, and the landscape simply breathtaking! We highly recommend this tour - we made memories we’ll have for a lifetime!

Ian Evans
This was a tremendous tour, and Tom Barefoot's Tours was very resposive and
helpful throughout the booking process.

Mike Sheehan
Great tour, amazing scenery throughout.  I'm glad Junior, our guide, was
doing the driving.  He's quite a character and made the day fun.  The
food provided was okay and the stops were fairly short, but this tour is
definitely worth it.

Mary Renner
We enjoyed our Road to Hana tour.  Great driver.  Great company.
 Wonderful views.  Delicious lunch!  Everything was exactly as
state on the site.

Bill Davis
Excellent tour from Valley Excursions! Our driver was a long time resident and
very knowledgeable. We were able to experience many beautiful areas that we
would not have seen or understood if we drove by ourselves.<br />
Another great tour and value for the price we paid through Tom Barefoot's. <br
Thanks, Bill & Carol

Dorothy Milakovic
The tour was very well done and started on time. Very beautiful scenery.
&nbsp;The only negative comment I have is the quality of the contential
breakfast. It needs to be changed.
