Demian provided a very insightful and enjoyable tour. He knows the best spots and best places whether it is from the view perspective or where to eat. We had an excellent time with him touring the full loop of Road to Hana. The back side of volcano and the beaches were awesome. He is very knowledgeable bout the points of interest and 5heir history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate such feedback. We covered a lot of ground in our 2 days of touring together, and managed the time wisely to make each preferred place truly enjoyable! I’m so glad you loved Hana Farms too! It’s one of my favorite places to eat. Mahalo for your easy going and personable nature. And you really knew how to handle the rugged roads of the backside! There’s a wild side in you after all!

It was an excellent tour provided by our guide Demian who was very professional with good perspective of Maui and Hawai....took us to the places which are relevant to our interest.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing your experience! I enjoyed our conversations, and how open and relaxed you both were to make the day flow with ease. The time flew by as a result.

I had done the Road to Hana three times before, and after doing it the fourth time with a private guide I HIGHLY SUGGEST GOING THIS ROUTE!! We really submersed ourselves into the Maui culture and learned so many things. Demian took us to a few beautiful spots that aren't on any of the Road to Hana self guides, and I wouldn't have missed these spots for the world! We had such a great time with him and weren't worried about the road at all. We just sat back and relaxed! Such a great trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your experience Amanda! I had such a great time, while enjoying the adventurous spirit in all of you, along with great conversations. And I know plenty of other places that aren’t on those apps! So, glad to hear my choices left a lasting impression. I hope to show you more, next time you visit!

We spent a full day with Demian going counterclockwise through Hana and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. He is very knowledgeable about the areas we drove through, and took us to some fantastic spots. We loved swimming at the black sand beach and in a crystal clear cave full of fresh water! Lunch at Hana Farms was absolutely delicious. Demian's van is very comfortable, and he is a confident driver on the winding and bumpy roads. We look forward to hiring Demian again next time we are in Maui.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Nui Loa Lynn! We really enjoyed the day with everyone. If only we had two full days to show you more out there! What a blast swimming with you at the black sand beach and feeling the power of the ocean that day. And I hope you have great footage of the cave pools. Epic place! Until the next time, for more great memories in the making...

Really can't imagine doing Road to Hana without a private guide and Demian was great! Given Maui is currently in a drought and many of the roadside falls were almost non-existent, we would have missed out on several hidden gems without him--Great local beaches to a huge lava tube with beautiful, sparkling beauty deep inside to a gorgeous pool up a mountainside. Highly recommend taking the entire loop around the volcano rather than out to Hana and back. Highly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Nui Loa Caren! I really enjoyed the day with you two, and wish there had been more time and sunlight to show you even more! It’s ongoing... The biggest highlight was having places to ourselves. You never know! I enjoyed customizing the day to what I felt would work best for you. Thank you and hope to see you again next time you visit Maui.

Demian was excellent. Our family enjoyed every aspect of the adventure. We had a variety of different ages (23-75) which could of been difficult because not everyone could do the same things but Demian took care of everyone with no problem. We all agreed this was the highlight of our trip with lots of fun and adventure. Demian had lots of knowledge about Hana and took us places we never would of adventured. So much fun and will definitely use Demian and recommend him to others who visit Maui.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback Christine! It was a real pleasure to spend the day with your family. It was one of the highlights of my experiences as well. Could have easily spent two days out there showing us even more! I look forward to the next time...

Demian was awesome! Very knowledgeable about Hawaii, both culture and land. Very flexible in customizing what we wanted to see and do. Great at avoiding the crowds, we focused on less crowded spots known mostly to the locals. We had a black sand beach all to ourselves! Highly recommend Demian, and ToursByLocals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing your experience Walter! I had a great time with your family and you, and good laughs along the way! Glad to hear the experience was exactly what you wanted. There is so much to do out there. One day isn't enough, but we made the most of it! Hope to share another experience with you next time you visit.
Matthew GauthierUnited States
Our family enjoyed an epic hike to the Four Falls. My wife and I and four kids completed the rigorous trail through the bamboo forest to each of four waterfalls with the help of our outstanding guide, Demian. He is knowledgable, personable, safety conscious, and a ton of fun. We swam in crystal clear pools, climbed waterfalls, swung from a rope swing, and jumped off cliffs into the water. I would highly recommend Demian as a guide and firmly intend to use him again on our next trip to Maui.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mahalo nui loa for the amazing review! Had such an incredible time with all of you and was impressed with everyones abilities. A highlight for me as well, and really look forward to another epic adventure with your amazing family! Can't wait until the next time... Thanks Matt!
Anthony PhillipsUnited States
We had a great tour with Demian. He was very knowledgeable about Maui and Hawaii in general, and was very personable. The jungle and waterfall tour was beautiful, and moderately strenuous!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anthony! You both did a great job and really enjoyed our time together. It was nice to feel a real sense of accomplishment by the end of it. Do me a favor and save the wild adventures for next time! Mahalo
