We contacted them a few weeks ago, and our time in dock didn't fit in with the time of their tours, (8.00-5.30), but they did respond very quickly.

I'm hoping that more people will respond since us locals can't comment on the tour companies (we don't use them!)

I am booked on POA 11/14 & haved checked into a few tour companies about the road to Hana. Most leave too early in the day . Ekahi Tours told me they could meet me at the pier @ 8:15 AM but the ship doesn't dock until 8:00. NCL lets their shore excursion people off first, I fear missing the tour & am just thinking of renting a car. If you find something different let me know.

It's more pricey, but it's also very much your tour...

We're going to use Hana Limousine Tours, which is a strech limo that can be reserved for 2-8 people. Only your group goes, you tell them what you'd like to see, and they stop when you want them to. Full bar service, lunch in Hana.

My sister-in-law runs a limo company here on the mainland, and she recommended them to us. They're picking us up at the pier at 9AM, back around 4PM. No herding or rushing!

Cost depends on the number of people in your party. You can get more information on prices and the tour itself by visiting their website at www.limohawaii.com/html/tours.html.

Default hana tour

Coasterbob,

We are also on the POA 9/5 and if you need another couple to share tour to lower price or for the company let me know. I am looking for ideas and recommendations as well.

Greg

Default Rental Car Road to Hana

About 10 years ago when we were staying on Maui we had a rental car. I don't remember which company. But they made you sign a statement that you would not take the car to Hana. You may want to check that our before renting a car.

That's the back road to Hana (the road past Hana connecting to Ulupalakua). The "front" road to Hana (past Paia) is covered under all rental car agreements. And the back road isn't even all that bad.

Coaster Bob,
Are you sure you want to go to Hana? It must be an all day tour. We drove it a few years ago and it was totally agonizing! If the trip were perhaps half as long, maybe it would be tolerable. I just don't see it as a must do kind of activity and arriving in Hana is a bit of a let down. I know, I know, to each his own but I wish someone had warned before I wasted a whole day getting carsick!
