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.

We had a wonderful tour with Holly. She was very informative and great sense of humor. One of the stops was unavailable but she replaced it with a vodka tour which was a good trade. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
