  • Maui: Sunrise & Breakfast Tour to Haleakala National Park

    1. Maui: Sunrise & Breakfast Tour to Haleakala National Park

    Make the most of your time in Maui by witnessing the breaking of a new day at the top of Mt. Haleakala. Celebrated for its raw beauty and unique scenery, Haleakala National Park will delight and amaze you. Dress warmly for the adventure that begins practically in the middle of the breezy Hawaiian night. The early-morning pickup quickly turns into a pre-dawn delight as guests gaze out at the Kula District's one-of-a-kind landscape and terrain. Prepare yourself for an unmatched sunrise. This tour nourishes the soul and the body: coffee and pastries are included. Guests return to their accommodation by late morning, inspired by the mountaintop sunrise.

    Best experience ever! If you are in Maui this is a must. Preston was an amazing guide, he knows so much about the island and is one of the sweetest people you will meet. The views are phenomenal. Dress in layers as it’s 45 degrees or colder all the way on top with wind. Well worth the early pick up!

    I really enjoyed the company's private lava tube. Of course the Rainbow Falls is neat. With the lunch, the spicy chips weren't good. The banana bread, egg, and trail mix were all good. He spent too much time driving around to find remote places. He is very knowledgeable about volcanoes and other things about the big island.

    I wished we were provided with a authentic Hawaiian lunch. Instead we only got sandwich from Safeway. I have been on other tours and we were given fresh made Hawaiian bbq lunch and fresh Hawaiian fruits. Tour was a little pricey and tour guide was smelly and probably didn't use deodorant. We were stuck in the van smelling him all the way back. I wanted to throw up. Didn't experience enough of the big island on this tour.
