Your experienced driver will take you on a 65-mile trip through a landscape of blooming rainforests, waterfalls, and dramatic coastal sights.

What people are saying about Hana

The audio tour is excellent.. following the instructions is important to keep up with time.. one thing to decide is whether of not you want to stay up 10k ft after 8.30 pm to watch the milky way because it becomes pitch dark and people with night time driving challenges should reconsider

The guide was very informative and we enjoyed it very much! The guide was knowledgeable and personalized the experience. It was very accurate based on where you were located as well.

Make sure to download before going because there is not much cell coverage during the trip. My husband and I loved it. I would recommend it for sure!
