Can’t recommend the Shaka Guide enough! Such fun, so informative, and so comprehensive when it comes to the actual tours. We used the Shaka Guide to tour Oah’u and Maui and are so glad we did. We learned a ton about Hawaiian history and culture and were led to some of the most incredible spots, even some off the beaten path. Who wants to spend hours on a bus with strangers and a tight schedule? Not us! And thanks to Shaka Giide tours, we didn’t need to. This app is genius! Download the tours! You’ll be glad you did!

Awesome!

We used the Classic Road to Hana tour. Very much worth the money, would definitely recommend.

Yes! Feel free to join the tour along the route. Just make sure that you follow the numbers in chronological order from where you are starting from.  If you don’t begin at one of the tour starting points you’ll miss a few stories, but you’ll still have a great experience.

Here’s our packing list for this tour. It may seem a little long, but remember, what you bring depends on the activities you choose to do for the day.

Aside from the morning reservation which costs $1.50, there’s only one entrance fee on this tour and that’s at the park itself. Entrance costs $30.00 per car. There are optional trips to Upcountry Maui and Makawao Town where you can visit some paid attractions and grab a bite to eat.

You can book a sunrise reservation for Haleakala up to seven days in advance here. Please note, you do NOT need a reservation to see the sunset, just the sunrise.

It depends on the time of year, but sunrise in the winter (October-March) is between 6:15 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and in the summer (April-September) it’s between 5:45 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. We recommend you double check the night before your visit. 

Please note, if you’re staying in West Maui at one of the resorts in Lahaina, Kaanapali or Kapalua it takes about 45 minutes to reach the start of the tour in Kahului and then about an hour to reach the summit — plan for two hours of travel time.


No, this tour can only be done in one direction.
