It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™

Though Maui is easily driveable and accessible, you will want to take your time and explore all corners of this diversely beautiful island paradise. It a place like no other where in a day you can be swimming with turtles, or hiking the moonscape at the top of an extinct volcano, or absorb the refreshing mist of a rainforest waterfall.

For the easiest possible experience, the entire island has tour commentary. All you have to drive, and the tour will transition automatically as you move from one section of the island to another. You simply drive, listen to the commentary and make decisions the places that interest you the most, just like have a local friend to show you around.
