We had a great time. The only downfall was that this tour is not offered any more and unknown to us had been canceled. Per the tour company it had not been booked by viator as our voucher said it had. The company did good by us and the office manager made it happen for us. She went out of her way to take us to the three stops and then out for supper following the three stops. Although she was not a tour guide she was great company.
Dynamic Travel seems to be a go with the flow agency, which is great! We were picked up at our hotel at 10:30. The tour guide will tinker with the itinerary a bit to suit the travelers. Brannon was our guide. We started out at Ocean Vodka which was a very beautiful spot with an interesting tour. Lunch was not listed when we booked but we traveled to the ranch town of Makawao reminiscent of an old west town and had lunch there. All meals were included. The tours of the distilleries were informational and interesting, always followed by a tasting. The winery has absolutely beautiful grounds. At Halimaile Distillery we received souvenir shot glasses. The Kula Lodge gourmet dinner got such bad reviews that we decided against it. We went to Paia to the Mana grocery store and picked up a hot dinner and beverages from their food bar and then headed to Ho'okipa Beach Park for a picnic dinner and to watch the surfers and turtles. Brannon filled us in with tons of information throughout the day. We had absolutely no complaints about this tour.
The guide was excellent. The dinner was horrible. The guide stopped and talked with someone in the kitchen and they admitted that they shouldn't have been serving the steak because it was tough and grizzly. A word of caution, if you get car sick, choose another tour.
Great tour of Maui's upcountry! Our guide Tammy picked us up at our condo and took us on a wonderful tour of distilleries and Maui's upcountry. It was great to have such a knowledgable 'local' of the island be our guide. She was friendly and full of information about the whole island. Both distillery tours were very interesting but we really enjoyed the view and herb garden at the Ocean vodka farm. We even stopped by the Surfing Goat dairy farm nearby and sampled some great cheeses. Dinner a the Kula Lodge was nice with another great view - the restaurant has an older 'lodge' vibe which we enjoyed. We'd like to make it back to try a pizza from their outdoor wood-fired brick oven. We recommend this tour!
