“STUNNING, AWESOME!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

My husband and I took this tour and were totally blow-away with this tour. Mark was so very knowledgeable of the Island. He was informative and make this trip, a truly wonderful experience for us. Mark explain about the plants, sea, and the local beauty of everwhere we went. I can not explain all the interesting facts Mark provide for us. Mark shared his personnel experiences, as having been born and raised in Maui, what better can someone share except when it comes from his own experience. Mark had us laughing and just made this whole tour, great. I recommend anyone who desires to see the island from a locals point of view, to take this tour. To see the beauty of God's creation and then explained from a Biblical stand point, was more then we could have experienced. Plus Mark was caring about the fact that i get motion sickness and he drove so that i didnt feel the need to take any medicine nor did i ever experience any of the symptoms. Either Mark drove well or I was just so preoccupied by all the things Mark shared with us or the beauitiful luxury van, either way, I had a carefree tour. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to take a tour of Hana and not want to drive. Take this tour, you will love it!

“Comfortable ride and knowledgeable tour guide.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This is by far one of the best tours we have been on. Marc was our driver on Hana Creation Tour. He is passionate about the landscape and the beauty therein that it makes this tour worth more than the price he charges. As a biologist, he can give you the details of the vegetation. As a local he knows the local beaches in the area. As a man of God he truly believes in the Genesis record account. In the beginning God created......

If you want a tour that details describes and delivers, Hana Creation Tour is the only tour we recommend.

From beginning to end a great tour!

“Amazing trip! Hana like you've never seen it before!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I've always driven Hana on my own, or taking friends and family around the island. It was such a delight to have Marc pick us up in a brand new shiny van. You sit up pretty high so you get to see all of the plants closer up and the cliffs from above which you cannot do from a rental car :) He told us a lot about the history of the island and showed us outrageously beautiful plants. This is a great way to see Hana without missing out because you're driving. Marc has a wealth of knowledge about the history, plants and people of Hawaii which makes the drive so much more interesting and fun. You will see beautiful cliffs, beaches, plants and of course waterfalls from the local's perspective. On the backside of the crater we got to see a stunning sunset and even heard some beautiful Hawaiian songs sung by Marc and his sweet daughter Caeley. Awesome trip, will definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone over driving on your own!

Thanks so much for your review of the Hana Creation Tour and we are excited that you had such a great time. We love getting to spend time with our guests and having fun on the tour. We also appreciate that the van is up high and the windows are large so you can see over the guardrails and vegetation along the road which would otherwise obstruct your view if driving in a car. One of the other things we love about this new Mercedes Sprinter van is its electronic stability control suspension system which reduces the vehicle's shifting from side to side as you go around the many curves on the road to Hana. This is an advanced feature not typically found in other types of vehicles and makes for a smoother, more comfortable day for the passengers (and the driver :) ).

“Road to Hana and beyond”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We had been on several trips on the road to Hana but never passed it. Yesterday's trip was one I will remember for a long time. Not only was Mark, the driver, commentator and chef he is a remarkable person in his knowledge of Maui but his continuos display of the little details fascinated us. Plants that can help in small injuries, berries that are edible and leaves that can be made into tea. These are but some of the information given to us by Mark.

The part of the trip beyond Hana was very interesting. We past tropical forest with lush green trees, plants and rainfall to dry arid desert like hills and plains. It truly was a contrast in scenery traveling from one to the other.

We especially enjoyed the christian perspective of this drive. Mark gave us his views of how God's overall grand design has been fulfilled when we see the evidence displayed during the drive. All of God's creations have a place and purpose on this earth.

We stopped at many places to either take pictures during Kodak moments or a break. There were so many beautiful sceneries and we were asked to be liberal in our request to stop and capture those moments.

At the end of the trip it was almost sad that it was over. The time passed so quickly that it did not seem we were on the road for 11 hours. It was truly a memorable trip, one that I will remember for a long time. I will recommend to my friends and family to take this trip with Mark and his Creation Tours.

“Memorable day”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I've done the road to Hana 3 times before on our own, but this trip was unsurpassed in the info and insight shared. We saw places we would not have found on our own, and our eyes were opened as what what we saw...the wonder of creation along with the impact of man affecting nature. Science, history and photo ops gift wrapped with aloha!
Marc and his daughter were warm, knowledgable and absolutely genuine in their desire to give us the best day in Maui ever. Every consideration was given to our comfort and interests. We feel like beloved family members now!
