What are the best road to Hana tours?
If you’ve talked to anyone about visiting Maui, driving the road to Hana is one of their first recommendations. The lush green valleys, nooks and crannies, waterfalls and winding roads are breathtakingly beautiful. The question is, where do you stop? What are the must-sees? The roads are tight, windy and if you’re focusing too hard on driving, you might miss it all!
That’s why we strongly recommend the incredible selection of Hana tours of Maui so you can sit back, relax, take in the views, stop at all the best spots, and learn about the historical and cultural relevance of the stunning sights. Which is the right tour to take? Read through the options below to make your choice (but honestly, you can’t go wrong)!

Enjoy some of the most famous stops along the way, including Wainapanapa, a black sand beach with an explosive blow hole (don’t stand too close!). See the luscious Keanae peninsula, home to tons of Taro fields or “lo’I” patches, which is where poi comes from. Stunning small and large waterfalls (our tour guides know all the best ones), which gush and spray when it’s raining. Gaze out the windows to see the incredible tropical rainforest of Maui. Stop at the Wailua overlook and climb a few stairs to catch a 360-degree view of Hana, including giant, distant waterfalls, valleys, and the ocean, and if you’re lucky, you may see an expansive rainbow.
