Not So Good Trip to Hana

Our tour guide was a very nice person who tried very hard to make the trip fun. However, he was from Mexico and spoke very broken English. He continuously played Mexican music which was not appropriate for a relaxed trip to Hana

We had a great time. The van was nice and clean. Oscar was entertaining. The sites were stunning. Black sand beach was the highlight. (Oscar needs to remember to keep politics off the trip as views differ and that can ruin a trip). But we would do it again.

The ride was not...

The ride was not enjoyable. We stopped at the three places and were completely rushed through the turtles and the waterfall. The guide was driving away without one of the couples after the black sand beach. I would never pay 416.00 for anything like this again.

Hi there Hana road is intense hard and dangerous path 6 hours minimum back and ford and you was notice on the platform you booked is instead there, but offer plenty attractions the spectacular rain forest, stunning scenery, unique black sand beach etc etc. But the most important you was locked of POSITIVE ATTITUDE and no was TUNED with other customers on the same day tour with you, they enjoy be witness to watch Maui's flaunting is more beautiful colors and wil life. Your PESSIMISM AND CRITICS was relevant at beginning also you feel uncomfortable other customers and they complained with us about you!

Please be careful about what you read on viator. Maui Fantastic Tours is a horrible tour company. Read their reviews on google for an accurate description. I believe a lot of the reviews on here could be fake. Our tour guide/ and owner was Oscar. Not only was his driving severely dangerous, but his loud music and constant whistle blowing was obnoxious. He tried to leave two people at a spot, and we basically had to stop him. They were supposed to be at the bus at 11:20. They arrived at 11:19 and he literally was trying to drive away. Ironically, he was 10 minutes late to pick us up in the morning. Everyone felt sick and annoyed by this guy. Going 40 mph down the road to hana in the rain is extremely dangerous. This guy felt like a scammer. No cliff jumping and no sea turtles sightings except in one spot where you could see them a quarter a mile away. The black sand beach area was really cool and the only reason I gave two stars. This guy appeared to be in a manic state. For your safety and well being, stay clear of Maui Fantastic Tour.

We go deep in our records and you don't booked with us ! So you wrote in behalf of third party to make damage to us and that is dishonest attitude from you ! Our competitors are jealousy about our success on less two years we are number one tour company in outdoor activities here in Maui Hawaii

Oscar our tour guide was super fun and was very experienced driving the Road to Hana. He also gave us a nice Maui history lesson. Now keep it mind that it’s an 8-hour tour. There’s a lot of driving involved, but the scenery is gorgeous! A couple things that worked out for me: 1. bring Pool shoes. The waterfall had pretty slippery rocks. 2. Bring snacks. We skipped the food trucks as they were super busy and just packed snacks. 3. Bring the right attitude! Being grumpy for 8 hours in a bus is not ideal for anyone.

Unforgettable experience

We had an incredible time on our Hana tour with Oscar. He was a fantastic guide - knowledgeable and friendly. He really put effort into helping our group get to know each other throughout the day. He took pictures and videos of us and had all kinds of tips and advice for how to make the most of our experience. As far as the stops- each one was wonderful. It is a full day and you will be tired at the end, but so worth it. The black sand beach was our personal favorite - the beauty was unreal, but cliff jumping at the waterfalls was a close second favorite too! Highly recommend this tour, especially if Oscar is the guide!

This tour had so much potential and it was poorly managed. Our first stop was at the Turtle Beach but the guide told us that the turtles come out later in the morning. He said we may stop at the end of the day if we had time. The company should organize the tour so the Turtle Beach stop happens when the turtles are actually out. We were constantly rushed by our guide at each stop but he pulled the van over and lectured us for 20 minutes about how to live our lives. He could have given this speech while driving and then we would have had more time at the Waterfall. He tried to play some games in the van so that each family would get to know one another but he chose one "helper" and if you were sitting in the back of the van, he forgot about you. He kept telling us that we needed to rush to beat the other tour companies to each stop. When he dropped us off at the food trucks, he told us specifically which trucks to go to. All of us went to the same food truck and when the other family got their food, they walked up the hill to the van. We were about 5 minutes behind them and when we walked up the hill, the van was gone. Our guide left us on the side of the road. We had no idea where he went. He did show up about 5 minutes with no apology, he just kept talking about how we had to start heading back because of traffic. It was 12 noon and our tour was supposed to go until 3pm. This tour was over $200/person and we did not stop at the Red Sand beaches and we were rushed everywhere. This was mismanaged and I would not recommend this guide to anyone. He ruined our day. The family we met from Illinois were very nice and it was pleasant getting to know them but I would not do another tour with this company.

Hello there, we welcome your review. But need to clarify few things because it seems that you have misunderstood our service and criticized it badly. It is wonder to see you being the only criticizer for the day while others have enjoyed the day to the max with us. First you have to understand that we are always focusing on having a safe and satisfactory trip with our guests. We have highly experienced guides with us who have faced the troubles of the tour track more than any of you guys. They are working on a clear plan to give you the best experience through out the journey. The turtle beach is totally depending on natural behavior of the Turtles, which you have to understand clearly. It is why we changed accordingly to have a better experience. All the other things you have mentioned are just negative blames. But we know the track better than you as mentioned first. We hurried you, we recommended the food truck, all because we are far more experienced than our competitors. We know the hidden gems in the tour than others. But it is sorry to say that you have forgotten to mention the beautiful and eye catching moments you witnessed during the tour. Our true customers are always there with us and they appreciate our work always. We are always there with our true and lovely customers!

Local know-how makes the Hana Highway a safe and enjoyable tour!

I wasn't sure about booking a tour for this trip - I'm more of a DIY traveler. But I'm so glad I did. Our tour guide, Oscar, was so friendly and knowledgeable, and kept us all on schedule without rushing us. Oscar knows the Hana Highway so well - he knows exactly where to speed up, slow down, honk the horn to let folks around the curve know we were there. If we had driven this highway on our own, we would have been too nervous and preoccupied with safety to enjoy the scenery. Oscar also shared his life wisdom with us during the trip, but gave us time to wind down in silence near the end of the drive. We ate at a food truck near Hana Bay, and it was the best fish sandwich I've ever eaten. You don't get that kind of local knowledge doing it yourself. One bit of wisdom for Viator travelers: Viator will tell you that you can cancel this reservation up to 24 hours in advance. What they WON'T tell you is that the tour operator may NOT let you get your money back. This tour operator does not allow cancellations, so be sure you want to do it before you make that reservation. Again, it's not the tour operator's fault, so I don't take any stars from them for this. It was totally worth it. But it's important not to just take Viator's word that you can cancel and get your money back. Another bit of advice: I noticed some of our fellow tourists did not tip the tour driver. It's really important to do that. I recommend 20%. I brought $100 cash to give to Oscar at the end of the drive. It was definitely worth it!
