HALEAKALA, UPCOUNTRY MAUI & IAO VALLEY DAY TOUR

The perfect slice of Maui awaits you on this scenic tour of The Valley Isle’s many natural and historical wonders. It’s a comprehensive taste of the best that Maui has to offer, and a window into why this beloved island is one of the world’s most popular visitor destinations. You’ll visit the most sacred and famous of the island’s sites, climb Haleakala volcano, aptly named “House of the Sun” to the very summit, and picnic in the charming lavender fields of the rural upcountry. You’ll take in history firsthand, visiting sites of monumental battles in Hawaiian history, exploring the vibrant natural paradises that exist in the island’s nooks and valleys, and see some of the stunning, unique wildlife that calls this gorgeous tropical space home. Through it all, our guides will give you an invaluable glimpse into the cultural traditions of the ancient Native Hawaiians, their military and peacetime practices, stories of royalty, the mechanisms of their ingenious farm and fishing methods, and their deeply meaningful relationship with, and respect for, the land.

“Malama aina”  is a Hawaiian for land stewardship, and forms a keystone to native values and philosophy, both in ancient times, and today.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“We went on the Haleakala, Iao Valley and Central Maui day tour. Edwurd was very knowledgeable about every tree and its origins. Saw very beautiful views and plant life. I am a big fan of city tours, it allows me the opportunity to see and learn things without having to drive it.” – Theresa B, via TripAdvisor


“We already liked Roberts from our past tours, so we took this one too. They picked us up from the hotel, right on time. Very informative and knowledgeable driver. If you are staying in Kahului this tour will kill 2 birds in one stone: Haleakala and Lahaina.” – BM11375, via TripAdvisor


“Great, informative tour day with a variety of scenery. We would recommend both Roberts Hawaii Tours & Ty as a tour guide!” Taryn O, via TripAdvisor
