Frequently Asked Questions

Need a bathroom? Porta potties or toilets are near most trailheads. After that, search for privacy foliage. 

Should we use our own backpacks? We prefer you use ours, then you don't accidentally walk off with our gear, and you don't get your pack dirty. 

What are these ninja water shoes? Japanese tabis (fishermen shoes). The felt sole clings to wet, mossy rocks better than any other shoe. They can be slippery in mud, however. Best to wear them in the water, not on the hike. 

Bugs love you? Got a bite? Ask your guide for AfterBite -- pharmaceutical ammonia that neutralizes the toxin. Takes away the itch. Also very good for bee, spider, scorpion, centipede and hornet stings. 

What are flash floods? Sudden, very rapid flooding in streams, due to heavy rainfall. Rare, but get out of the water if your guide blows a whistle. You need to react very quickly and head for high ground. Listen to your guide. 

Do you have medical issues? (back, knees, heart, diabetes, pregnancy) Write these down below or tell your guide. 

Is tipping the guide common? Yes, this is a service industry. If you're happy with your guide, a 10-15% tip is the best way to show appreciation.

Our Full Day Hana Rainforest full-day trip to Hana was honestly one of the best highlights of our honeymoon! My husband and I were so glad that we could relax and take in the beautiful scenery as opposed to worrying about the drive to Hana itself. Our tour guide, Ashley, was beyond amazing--from her hilarious stories to her vast knowledge of the island (not to mention incredible driving skills), she really made our tour! We went on a lot of excursions during our honeymoon, and Ashley was hands down the best tour guide of them all. We'd recommend Full Day Hana Rainforest to anyone in a heartbeat! :)

Great trip on June 16 with Bocker as our guide. It was everything we wanted. Got to hike, listed as moderate and that is what it was, not hard, but not too easy. Driver picked us up on-time at our hotel and was excellent both to our destination and back at the end of the day. - Tour guide Bocker really knew his stuff and knew people. Kept the day interesting and varied and had a lot of enthusiasm for his craft. Incorporated science information without being boring, We got to swim in pools and hike in great places. It was awesome. We would highly recommend this activity to others as a way to see the Hana Road. We did go another day by ourselves as well as we think this is our favorite part of Maui.

We did the bamboo hike at mile post 6.5 on highway 360 on the road to Hana. What a great adventure. You start with a short walk through the bamboo forest. Then it is a climb up a rope ladder, a walk across stepping stones followed by a climb up a rope ladder. Finish with a jump of about 15' off a cliff into a pool and a short swim across a pool to arrive at a waterfall which you climb up to arrive at a final pool and upper waterfall. So you need hiking shoes to start and then swim wear. You can leave your hiking gear before the jump off the cliff or better bring an inflation "ring" to carry a picnic across the pool. Watch this hike when it is wet as the stepping stones are VERY sloppy and a bit dangerous.

I'm so glad I did the full day Hana hiking trip, and not a Road to Hana bus tour. We took the back roads to Hana and got there before the crush. It was a small tour - just 5 of us - and only a few hours drive in the morning then back late afternoon. The whole day we were treated to expert commentary by Tony, who knew the answer to every question from Hawaiian history to botany to restaurant recommendations. He fed us well, found us passionfruit and guava in the rainforest to try, and let us in on the secret local spots. The hike was not difficult, and you actually get to see the best parts of the rainforest up close rather than through a bus window. If you take the tour with Tony, make sure to buy him an avocado at one of the fruit stands on the roadside to say thank you!
