100キロあまり続くハナ ハイウェイからは、熱帯雨林、滝、ビーチ、海岸線といった壮大な景色を眺めることができますカレパ ブリッジ（Kalepa Bridge）を通過後、ハイウェイは東のキパフルへ続き、ピイラニ ハイウェイにつながります。カフルイからハナまではわずか80キロほどですが、どこにも立ち寄らなくてもドライブには約2.5時間かかります。ハイウェイは幅が狭く、曲がりくねっているうえ、道中の橋59本のうち46本は1車線の幅しかありません。カフルイのすぐ東からハナまで、360号線にはおよそ620のカーブがあり、そのほぼすべてが生い茂る熱帯雨林の中を通ります。コンクリート・鋼鉄製の橋の多くは1910年に作られたもので、現在も1本を除いてすべて使用されています。ハナの海岸へのこの全日ツアーでは、マウイの海岸線沿いの絶景ドライブをお楽しみいただけます。
This was a spectacular tour, we were brought on a guided bus tour through tropical rainforest, breath taking landscape and had the best banana bread I’ve ever tasted. The trip is a long day but our guide made it go at an easy pace, stopping regularly and he literally knew every plant and plane we passed. We were considering driving it ourselves but I’m so glad we didn’t as it’s quite a rough and dangerous road in parts! It was just nice to sit back and take it all in!
The road to Hana is probably the number one 'see it to believe it' experience in Maui. Do yourself a favor and take the tour. With stunning views and a running dialogue that brings history to life, I cannot emphasize enough the value of this event. Our guide was superb and he gave us an experience to remember for a lifetime.
We had Jacob as our Tour Guide and he deserves 5 stars. He was great!
On the downfall we forgot a hat on the shuttle. I contacted the company right away and they said someone would get in contact with me, however, after two days of no call, I called again and I sent Stephanie the coordinator for Dynamic Tours a text message. From the day we lost the hat, we were on the island for another week. I asked her if they could drop it off or if there was a way for us to come get it at a designated place. She responded and said she would check the bus and would get back to me later that day...I didn't hear back. I followed up and the next day she responded saying she had found the hat. She asked me how long I would be on the Island and during this time, I still had a few days left. I kept having to follow-up with her to see what the status was and if they could drop it off or I could pick it up somewhere, however, she would always dodge the question. Even on my last day I had to contact her and she said she wasn't on the island and the hat was still on the bus. She said she would mail it to us since it was our last day. I had told her previously that this wasn't my hat but someone else's in my group so it was important for me to retrieve it.The annoying part of this was the fact she wasn't straightforward...if you aren't able to do something, don't say what you think I want you to say. Lastly, it's been over two weeks and we still have not received the hat....I even sent Stephanie a text message asking her if the hat had been mailed and I have yet to receive a response. It's really upsetting that this occurred.
Second visit to Maui, second Road to Hana journey. Jacob, our driver from Dynamic tours is more than fantastic. He is knowledgeable, engaging and made the trip memorable. We even texted him a non-related question about the music he played and responded back in minutes. Awesome people make a great experience unforgettable! Thanks, Jacob!
