Haleakala, Iao Valley and Central Maui Day Tour
From US$144,46
If you don't have a lot of time, make sure you see the very best of Maui on this guided day tour. Effortlessly summit the dormant volcano of Haleakala Crater for lush, sweeping views; admire the dramatic Iao Needle in Iao Valley State Park, and visit the historic Kaahumanu Church to learn about the late Hawaiian monarchy. Finally, see Wailuku, the charming seat of Maui County.
What to Expect
Your day trip begins with a pickup from your Maui hotel. Meet your guide and settle in to the air-conditioned vehicle for the drive upcountry 
to Haleakala National Park.

Covering 33,000 acres of rocky, volcanic wilderness, the national park offers many dramatic views. Summit the 10,023-foot (3,007-meter) dormant volcano of Haleakala while learning about its geological history, and local legends, from your guide—a light jacket is recommended as it gets cold at the top. Take in the lush scenery and sweeping views before heading on to Iao Valley State Park where Iao Needle rises 1,200 feet (366 meters) from the valley floor. Walk along a short trail to an overlook to take in the views. Nearby, visit Kaahumanu Church, named after one of Hawaii's great monarch's, Queen Kaahumanu.

Finally, journey through the city of Wailuku, county seat of Maui and home to historic buildings, the details of which your guide explains before you continue on past flower farms, pineapple fields, and sugar cane plantations. 

Your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your original departure point.
