Private Waterfall - Bamboo Jungle Walking Tours Just
Friends or Family - Nobody Else.
Maui is a really large island.
It takes about 11 hours to drive around the whole thing
in my jeep - and that's without stopping. That said,
when planning your vacation waterfall activities, you
don't have to drive "all the way" on the road to Hana,
just to see a waterfall and a bamboo forest.
are a bunch of easy, yet still hidden waterfalls that
the normal tourist will just drive on by - as they "try"
to explore the road to Hana. The waterfall area begins
about a hour from your hotel. How far you want me to
drive on the road to Hana is up to you. We see waterfalls,
the bamboo forest, with plenty of pictures! The road
to Hana is the best eco tour activity on Maui...you
just have to do it right. The first requirement is a
convertible jeep. The second is hiring a private waterfall
tour guide. It's the best way to see Maui waterfalls
at your own pace.
driving a jeep on the road to Hana is a fun day by itself
- but when you blend in hiking and swimming with picture
taking and lunch, then the entire day becomes folklore...to
be told at family gatherings forever. Since these are
private hikes, the hiking is different because the "easy-hard"
hiking level is up to you. Some trails are super easy
and STILL lead to beautiful, yet hidden waterfalls.
Other hiking trails are more challenging. I've lived
here for 25 years - and I know tons of hiking trails.
I do guarantee 1 thing: ALL HIKES ARE BEAUTIFUL !!!
Being "escorted" in a private, convertible jeep on Maui's
Hana Highway, is a completely mellow experience. The
soft-top folds back, allowing you to hear the birds
and smell the fresh jungle air. The road to Hana is
famous and spectacular. My private jeep also has heat
and air conditioning if needed.
8 to 10 hours on the Hana Highway can be a long day.
There are 617 curves on the road to Hana - and a lot
of bad drivers! Even though the Hana area has waterfalls
and hiking, do you really want to spend 8 hours in a
car on a dangerous road? This is why you hang out with
someone like me. I've driven the Hana Highway for over
25 years. I have a convertible jeep. Even though most
of my private jeep tours have just 2 people at a time,
I often get a family with 2 or 3 kids. Having a private
jeep that's big enough for a family of five, can make
the road to Hana a magical experience.
by itself, is just a small town that's really far away.
Sure there's waterfalls, but tourists' like you and
your family, usually just drive past a bunch of secret
waterfalls to get to one little town. That sounds like
a long day for a couple waterfalls and some goofy photos.
Remember, you're on your Maui vacation. You've planned
this for a long time. Let me do the driving.
is why I decided to make the day more manageable, by
only driving halfway to Hana. This is also why my private
jeep tours ROCK! Everybody else is so focused on getting
to the Hana waterfalls that they HAVE TO stay in their
car. But after 25 years, I know tons of secret waterfalls
and bamboo hikes. It's pretty simple:
less on the road to Hana, means you're at the waterfalls
longer, with no other people and it's just your private
jungle day! I'm really into letting tourists "absorb"
the tranquility of the waterfall areas. We can stay
in each different waterfall spot as long as you'd like.
It's your day. The island of Maui has 5 different hiking
areas - and the Hana Highway waterfall area runs along
the bottom of a 10,00 foot volcano, next to the ocean.
private jeep that we use on the road to Hana, is the
newer 4 Door type. These jeeps are a little wider and
have a smooth ride that hugs the road to Hana surprisingly
well. When I take the top off, the jeep becomes a convertible
that simply "raises the bar" on the entire day! Only
10% of typical Maui tourists' are able to get a convertible
for the road to Hana. Seriously, it's THE ONLY WAY to
get the full experience.
road to Hana explodes with sensory overload. As a family
activity, my jeep tours are perfect because I take all
the family photos on the road to Hana. I love kids and
they love me! I even grew up in a big family (7 kids)
and realize that there is "always something" that the
day will bring and that every family is different. I
have hiking trails that are suited for your family.
a Maui activity, you'll discover that most activities
are based by the ocean. Hardly any tours or activities
are private. Make your Maui vacation special - at least
the road to Hana part. Honeymooners love Maui too! I've
had honeymooners come back, years later with their kids
and book another jeep tour for the whole family! But
like all tourists, honeymooners just need a little help.
Honeymooners are more spontaneous than say, a family.
A family will plan their Maui vacation more "day to
day" because they're spending more money. Feel free
to discuss any of your Maui family vacation or honeymoon
activities with me.
