What people are saying about Makawao

We had a great time! Lots of amazing sites, a beautiful sunset, and good food at the end. Our driver was friendly and had good historical knowledge, but the one negative, which is why I removed a star, was his driving... He drove very fast around winding turns, and those of us in the very back felt unsafe and somewhat carsick because of how fast he was driving.
