Esta excursão ao nascer do sol em Maui também inclui transporte de ida e volta para o hotel, café da manhã continental e taxas de entrada.
This was a great tour and I appreciated that they picked us up at our hotel. I think in the future I will skip the breakfast. Is wasn’t good and there seemed to be a lot of wasted time on the way back. Could have been back around 10 without breakfast.
Recommend anyone going to Maui to take this tour. At the top of Haleakala, it can still be chilly in the 40's in June. Dress warm and bring a cap. The sunrise views is awesome, peering through the clouds below you.
For those with a rental car, you could go back a different day for a hike around the summit. Bring enough water if you are going for the hike.
I am torn about how to review this excursion. Let's start with the incredible sunrise. The views are amazing and worth every second of the 2.5 hours it takes to get to Haleakala. It's quite the scene to watch the sun come up over those clouds at 9,000 feet.
However, the rest of the trip left much to be desired. Our guide never fully communicated the plan for the day, which led to a bit of confusion. After the trip up the volcano bring Dramamine if you get car sick it took entirely too long to get down. We made two stops on the way down the volcano, one of which was 20 minutes at the visitor center which hadn't opened yet. Then we made our way to breakfast which was at an aging public golf course. At this point, everyone was tired from waking up at 2 AM and ready to go home. The food was pleasant but in retrospect I would have rather saved the time and just gone straight home.
Overall, it's hard to be upset with the trip as the views were just incredible! However this 9 hour trip 2 AM to 11 AM would have been better as a 6-7 hour trip. If I were to do it again, I would just drive our rental car up the volcano and pay the entrance fee to the park and save the rest of the money. I'm not sure you really get the bang for all the bucks you spend.
Our tour guide Glen from Polynesian tours, was very knowledgeable. He kept us informed about what to expect during our tour. Bathroom breaks, snacks, coffee, and breakfast. It was 40at the summit, so the coffee provided by the tour company was very helpful. My only advice would be to bring and insulated cup with lid, so your coffee stays warm. I will cherish this memory for years to come
Our driver was fantastic. Amazing early morning. Food good too at the golf course. Pre snacks in the early AM good too. Driver totally informative. A self 'funk and wagnal' encyclopedia of knowledge about the Islands in general. Love the driver.
Loved it. It was well worth getting up early and heading out to see the stars and sunrise. Breath taking. The tour guides were great and I would recommend them again. Keep in mind it is cold on top of the crater, dress warmly in more than a light jacket. Saw a lot of cold people because they did not heed the warning of being cold. People where wearing socks on thier hands and wrapped in towels, defiantly not comfortable
