from Maui Hana Cave-Quest Day Tour
The day begins with complimentary pick-up between 7:00 am & 7:30 am. Traveling to Pa’ia leads us to start a new Adventure in Paradise with a light morning snack. Afterward, the journey to Hana begins. Tour the famous Road to Hana in the air-conditioned comfort of an exclusive, 6 to 8 guest, Luxury Limo-Van. Photo opportunities abound, along this spectacular sea-coast drive. Ke’anae, a quaint Hawaiian village with peaceful taro fields and Waikani Falls, glistening with fresh mountain rain water, are just two of the many sights to be enjoyed. Guests discover and learn, in-depth, about the native Hawaiian people, their culture, and land.

This full day Interactive Experience allows guests to tour the remote Hana Coast, plus discover Maui’s own “Wonder of the World”, the incredible Ka’eleku Cavern. Created by Pele, the Goddess of Fire, this enormous subterranean lava tube resembles a chocolate-colored Lava Cathedral Cave, frozen in time forever! Walk beneath the dense tropical rain forest of Hana through Pele’s famous underground passage. Discover elephant’s foot stalactites, mounds of chocolate colored lava drops and soufflé-like lava swirls formed over 30,000 years ago. Photos permitted, so take your camera for some mystical pictures of “Hana Down-Under”.

After the hike, guests delight in a scrumptious Pacific Rim Cuisine Lunch.

Heading back to the “real world”, we return from Hana at a “Maui-style” pace. There’s plenty of time to swim, or just relax and enjoy. Bring bathing suits and towels to capture a lifetime memory of swimming in a crystal clear, freshwater pool under a cascading waterfall.

Tour Returns: 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm.

"A must see tour"
May 2016
Temptation Tours was the company we personally rated as # 1. It was worth every penny we spent and the Guide/driver of the mini bus Sean was the best guide ever. We felt we were in a best company and the mini van was one of the best. Sean took us thru the full day and narrated the history of all the places we went. He did not rush and took more than enough time to visit all the places and went above and beyond to make sure that we get the full knowledge of the place. We only wished we could convey and persuade our friends to go with temptation Tours when ever they visit Hawaii. Wonderful job our friend Sean.

"Our AWESOME Hana Sky-Trek experience"

I have to say, this experience is a MUST-DO for those who want to go to Hana. Gayle was our tour guide and she was marvelous. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She has a lot of experience doing this now for 30+ years! I must say, she made the trip. The van was very nice and clean and extremely comfortable. My son decided to take a nap and enjoyed being in the back of the van so that he could recline the seat into a lay-back position. Gayle was a very safe and efficient driver; getting us to every stop in the right amount of time. She gave us ample time at each of the stops and always made sure that we were on schedule. If you take this tour, I highly recommend taking it with Gayle. The stops included an optional dive into a waterfall lagoon which my wife and son plunged into. Just when you thought that the apparent highlight of the trip (the black sands beach) was over, the Blue Hawaiian helicopter part was just the icing on the cake. Garrut (sorry if I misspelled) was the BEST pilot. In fact, he’s the guy who trains all of the other pilots; so if you can choose, you’d be hard pressed not to ask for him. We lucked out by getting the best tour driver AND the best pilot. So much fun! My son had the best time. Again, I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have a “highlights of Hana” tour and does not want to drive for 8 hours and get a BREATHTAKING view from above at the end of the trip. Great job guys! Kudos to the Gayle and Garrut and the entire team. We will definitely be recommending it to our friends and family back home.

On Sunday, July 28th two families took an excursion, titled Road to Hana Tour via our NCL cruise on Pride of America. The gentleman who picked us up was named Jimmy Pignatelli. There's not an appropiate word to describe how wonderful Jimmy was. He took care of setting our table for lunch. He was extremely knowledgeable about the island. He never rushed us. He was FANTASTIC. You could tell in his voice that he loved his job and where he lived. Thank you Jimmy! The Seven Group from Pride of America

Got picked up on time from our hospital and right away felt like we picked a winner. Wendee was a fantastic guide for the day - personable, knowledgeable, friendly, a great driver, a confident and competent guide. She accommodated the different wants for the 8 of us and everyone was happy. Helped my husband and I get in the water every time we wanted to. But we truly experienced what an unbelievable and caring some she was - and the company- when the other 6 guests were not able to get back to their hotel at the end of the day, because of the Kihei fires. Wendee went above and beyond to make sure the family had a safe and suitable place for the night and the company made sure the following day to get the family back to their hotel. We highly recommend touring with this company. And if you get Wendee - lucky you and tell her we say 👋 hi.

We were in Maui,Hawaii last week . On Thursday we took "Road to Hana Luxury tour" . There were 8 people in total -Me ,my husband,our 2 kids and my in -laws -both of them 70+years old and 1 couple from California. It was a spectacular tour. Our tour guide was Wendy who was very knowledgeable about the area's geography,history and culture. She also provided us with 2 great meals. She was always making sure we are all comfortable on that journey which was sometimes scary due to the nature of the road map. She made this trip one of the most memorable ones for us !!Basically it was an amazing tour . At the end of our tour Wendy got a call from her boss-Dave who informed her that there was a wild fire in central Maui and both roads to Wailea beach area where we were staying were closed and he advised her to take us to a safe place which is one of the evacuation shelter. In the meantime, she took us to see other places then offered to take us for dinner. I told her that with 2 kids and 2 seniors we would like to find another hotel for that night since we can't go back to ours. Immediately Wendy started contacting all the nearby hotels and Airbnbs for us. We entered one of the nearby Marriott's lobby and there were no vacancy ,even we saw people sitting on the floor as flights got cancelled that time . Every place we called were overbooked. I started panicking that time and then Wendy called one of her friend and got us a nice place to stay for that night.Next day Dave Campbell from Temptation tour sent Wendy to take us to our hotel in Wailea . Wendy was off that day and had an appointment but still she came early in the morning to take us to our hotel. We travel a lot throughout the world and always try to take small private tour & by far this has been the best tour ever!! Wendy -Thank You for your amazing customer service and for providing us such an amazing experience!! Dave Campbell-Thank You for checking on our safety 24/7 that day !! I can’t thank you both enough!!

We spent 15 days on 3 islands on our Hawaiian vacation at the end of May and beginning of June, 2019. Our lastThe full day in Maui, my wife scheduled us for this excursion. Up to this point, this vacation would be quite difficult to top and our family would’ve probably been content had it ended the day before. The excitement in all of us leading up to this day was palpable throughout our vacation as we all could not wait for this day to come. We arrived at Blue Hawaiian’s heliport and their staff were quite welcoming and made us feel at ease as none of us had been in a helicopter before. Everything was well paced leading up to boarding our flight. Hugo was our pilot/guide and he was as professional as they come. He was extremely engaging, affable and knowledgeable. I’m sure all of their pilots/guides are as such but we felt we were lucky to get him for our flight. The sights we saw were absolutely amazing and we can’t wait to get back to fly Blue Hawaiian again! Once we touched down in Hana, he graciously took photos of us in front of the helicopter and indulged me in taking a family selfie with us before introducing us to Scott Ferguson, our Temptation Tours Road from Hana driver/guide. Right out of the gate, Scotty was engaging and very informative as he ran down the plans for our time with him. Our comfort and satisfaction were top of mind from the moment we pulled away from the Hana airport until we said our ”until we meet agains”! Nothing makes an excursion a 5 star excursion more so than the person running the show. Scotty provided the perfect mix of information and humor. He does, however, need to work on his PhD 😂 (You’re welcome, Scotty). Aside from the spectacular places we stopped to get photos and videos, we felt like Scotty would be cool just to sit by the shore with and have a beverage. I’m still impressed by his iPhone photo/video knowledge. We learned a few tricks we’d not known. Don’t hesitate to book this excursion and either request or hope you get these two guys. You’ll have one of, if not the best, days of your vacation. Guaranteed!
