Our family of five was picked up from our hotel in the morning and quickly realized that this was going to be a special day. Christian, our tour guide, asked us what we were interested in and created a custom "Halfway to Hana" experience for our group.

We were excited to hike and explore Maui, so he took us to a couple of AMAZING waterfalls that we reached after short hikes. He taught us the best ways to navigate the rocky terrain and showed us the best places to safely plunge into the water! Christian took us to a variety of scenic areas and knew which food stands to stop at and which ones to skip. I have never had better banana bread in my life!

Our tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the island. He taught us a bit about the Hawaiian language, history and culture. We could point out any landmark, plant, or animal, and he had a story ready to go!

Our tour was scheduled to end at 4:00, but we were having such a great time, Christian extended the trip until 6:30 so we could experience as much as we could. My only regret is that we didn't travel all the way to Hana!

For any group traveling to Maui, this trip absolutely has to be on the itinerary.

Although we've been to Maui a number of times, we never took the Road to Hana. Ask ten people about the trip and you'd get ten different answers. Because of this we decided to go with a Guide, and we're glad we did. Jennifer, from Epic Experience took us to many spots we had heard about and some we hadn't. The best part about how Jennifer guided us was how she conducted the tour. She took us on the trip we wanted, not the trip she wanted to show us. She made suggestions, explaining what we would see, and let us decide how to customize our experience.

We visited places that were easy to access, and some that were not. Some were not for the faint of heart, but if you push yourself, you'll see some amazing sites. We visited the day after a heavy rain, and many of the trails were waterlogged. If you find yourself in this situation wear shoes you don't mind getting muddy - reef shoes or sandals will work well. You can go barefoot, but I would only recommend it if your feet are accustomed to walking barefoot on rocks and rough terrain.

We chose Epic Experience Maui, as we believed it would give us a unique experience. We’re on a budget, and this is the outing we decided was worth the money. We were three: mom, daughter and aunt. Our guide, Jen, was in sync with what we wanted to do.

For our particular interests, Jen was ideal. She was smart, engaged, knowledgeable about island history, agriculture, plant life, and animals. And she was fun and a good driver – all critical aspects of a special day.

She put us at ease from the start, gauged our individual levels of risk and respected them and challenged us to find our way to special places. One of them was a uniquely challenging hike to one of the waterfalls where we were the only ones there. But we also visited beaches unlike any we had seen before.

We heartily recommend Epic in general and Jenn in particular. We know we will be talking about and revisiting this day for years to come.

Our group of 4 adults and 4 children (10-13) had an AMAZING Jungle Waterfall Hike. It's an adventurous hike that included the bamboo forest and three beautiful waterfalls. You will get wet so make sure to wear the appropriate attire. Everyone in our group had a lot of fun and I would highly recommend this tour! Christian was our guide and was very knowledge of the island. He was also extremely helpful and patient as our big group navigated the hike. This was one of our favorite days on Maui.

Booked another adventure with Epic Experience. Hiking and driving through Iao valley and west Maui. Missed Emily, but Christian did a great job. Definitely saw some places we would never have found. Good to see the company growing since we last took a tour with them 2 years ago. I would highly recommend booking with them for anyone that wants a more personal, individualized adventure.
