Reverse Hana Road
Do you like going against the flow? By doing the full circle Road to Hana in reverse, we can explore the most popular sites and locations before the crowds arrive. Travel around Haleakala counter-clockwise. Our Reverse Hana Road adventure begins along the less-explored southern coast of the Hana Highway, continues past Hana Town, and concludes along the more famous northern route.
Experience lush, tropical rainforests, numerous cascading waterfalls, breathtaking coastline views, and secluded beaches, as well as popular roadside stands and the vast variety of climates and landscapes Maui has to offer. Highlights include numerous waterfalls, lunch in or near Hana town, Ke’anae Village, green sea turtles at Ho’okipa, a lava cave, rare colorful beaches, panoramic ocean views, and opportunities for light off-roading along a secluded beach.
This adventure does not include the Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools and the red sand beach at Kaihalulu. The Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools is located within Haleakala National Park and we do not have a permit to enter the park. Tour companies are also not allowed to take anyone into the park, even if the guests have their own pass.
In addition, the trail to the red sand beach in Hana is dangerous and crosses private property. Hana residents have asked tour companies to not take visitors here and we have respected their wishes. As an alternative, we stop at Koki Beach, where there is gorgeous red sand and picturesque views for the option of eating lunch by the sea.

How Many People Can You Fit In A Jeep For A Tour?
We can fit 3-4 people in a Jeep. We have several Jeeps that can caravan together if your group is larger than 4.
Do You Pick Us Up?
Yes. We offer complimentary pickup at your hotel, vacation rental, or cruise ship.
Are Your Jeep Tours Private?
Yes. We only offer completely private and customized tours of Maui for our guests. Rather than joining a loaded bus tour with strangers, your group is assigned your own tour guide for the entire day to do and experience whatever you’re interested in. Your tour guide is also your driver so you can enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes at your own pace.
We Want To See The Road To Hana But Don’t Want To Be There All Day. What Do You Recommend?
We would recommend the Halfway to Hana adventure. This is the perfect tour for those who just want just a sample of the famous Hana Highway. You will experience the rainforest, a few waterfalls, and incredible coastal views. Plus, we will share geological and historical tidbits along the way. All in the comfort of a Jeep–with the convertible top up or down–whatever you’d like.
We Have Already Booked A Waterfall Hike. What’s Something Else We Can Do On The Jeep Tour?
We offer a variety of experiences. Our best one is traveling on the road to Hana. Most tour companies travel clockwise and hurry you from place to place. With our Jeep, we can go off the main highway and explore areas no one else can. We can go to the Hana Lava Tube, a black sand beach, and swim in waterfalls. Let us know how much time you have and what activities interest you ahead of time.
How Long Is The Road To Hana Tour?
There’s a Halfway to Hana 6-hour tour, a Road to Hana 8-9 hour tour, and a Circle Hana (or Reverse Hana) Highway 9-10 hour tour. You can select the adventure that is right for you.
What Time Do The Tours Begin?
All Hana adventures begin at 6:15 am. This early start time allows us to get ahead of the crowds and you can enjoy the popular locations with a few people as possible. If 6:15 am is too early for you, we can pick you up at a time that works best for you (no later than 9 am).
The West Maui Mountain adventure begins at 9 am.
What Should We Bring On Our Tour, And What Do You Provide?
We recommend you bring swimwear, towels, a rain jacket, long sleeve shirt, sandals, a hat, sunscreen, bug repellent, and sunglasses. We provide bottled ice water and a cooler. Feel free to bring whatever food/drink you may need with you as well. Lunch and snacks can be purchased at several roadside stands–and we can recommend good places. Bring cash as many of these places have no internet.
Do Your Tours Enter The Haleakala National Park?
No. We do not enter the Kipahulu area (Seven Sacred Pools) nor the Summit Area (crater) of Haleakala National Park.
What Is Your Cancellation Policy?
Our official policy is we understand things happen outside of your control. With this in mind, if you cancel four (4) days prior to your scheduled adventure, we will refund 100% of the cost of your tour. Cancellation within four (4) days prior to your scheduled adventure will receive a 50% refund. Day of no shows will not receive a refund.
With this in mind, let us know if you need to cancel as soon as possible, and we will do our best to provide a 100% refund.
