Very interesting and knowledgeable tour guide had a great time would definitely do again it is ridiculous that I have to use 100 characters for this review how many more do I need
This was a much better value and way to get to Iao valley while in Maui. We enjoyed the narration by our driver on the way to the valley and could tell that he is passionate about what he does. I have no issues recommending this trip to anyone who is stopping in Maui.
