Some of the most frequently asked questions about the Road to Hana on Maui journey are, 'Is the drive for me?' And ''Why all the controversy about the road beyond Hana town?' Below we'll cover both of these topics.

If you've done any research on the internet regarding the Hana Highway, then you know there is quite a debate over whether the drive is worth the time and effort. So that brings us to the first question, 'Is the Hana Highway right for you and your travel party?' The answer isn't a simple yes or no. Ultimately it really comes down to the type of traveler you are and what your interests include. From a personal standpoint, there is no way we'd ever go to Maui and not drive the highway. We've rated the Hana Highway at the very top of our "Must See & Do." But we know several others who are just as inclined to tell you to skip it all together. This divergence in opinion is what causes the great debate.

If you’re not up for debating and simply want the easiest and most comfortable way to see the sights, we highly recommend booking a tour with our friends at Valley Isle Excursions. Their Road to Hana Tour is staffed by the best local guides in the business. Plus, they offer hotel pick up from most major locations and keep group sizes small. And you’ll travel in comfort in style in their luxury custom cruisers with panoramic windows. Best of all, their friendly guides know all the best stops so you won’t have to worry about missing a thing. (Or arguing with your travel companions!)
