Tony was an excellent guide. He showed us trails to waterfalls we would not otherwise have found. He explained a lot of the history of Hana as well. Very pleased and would recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review, It was a pleasure meeting you and your family!!!

Your looking at this wondering if you need a personal guide, tour bus, or do it yourself via rental. Tony was absolutely fabulous and showed us things that nobody else was even aware of. We passed numerous car rentals spending the day avoiding other cars and tours where the guide stayed in the bus when sending the group to look at the site. We also went many places you can't go to with a rental car. In short, you'll be sorry if you tour Maui without Tony. It's the best money you'll ever spend on Maui!

Tony created a wonderful, personalized day. He was a great listener and had just the perfect number of stops along our all day trek. His 4WD truck made us feel safe all along the way down the Road to Hana and then around the south side of the island. He pointed out notable sights, knowing which merited a stop or a simple glance. We saw changing faunas, waterfalls, glorious vistas and every looked a postcard. Tony even took us to his own ranch along the way! A fantastic adventure that ended at Maii Winery!

We had a great day with Tony. He made our enjoyment a priority and kept safety first for my family..
Tony was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgable and we learned so much. He took us to his ranch where we had lunch and learned a little bit about the life of the people of Maui. It was a long trip, close to 12 hours, and we stopped many times which made it easier. We highly recommend Tony if you want to get a good tour of the road to Hana. SANDY and Ted
We were a party of 4 and HIGHLY recommend Tony. He was extremely knowledgable, informative, professional, entertaining and an excellent driver. He provided us with a unique experience on the Road to Hana. He customized the tour to our every need. Tony was terrific!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy!!!

Tony was a perfect guide on the 'road to Hana'. His tour was the highlight of our trip to Maui. He took us to places we never would have known to go to, and he avoided the crowded 'touris traps'. He is very friendly and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to accomodate our circumstances. We can't recommend him highly enough. We felt very lucky to have had him as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a fantastic review!!!

We spent a great day with Tony in Maui. He is a very professional and knowledgable guide. As a native of Maui we traveled with him from the east to the west of the island and became friends in such a short time. We also visited his own beautiful farm and met his family as well. If you will hire tony as your guide you will have the best time of any of the islands. Thank you Tony from Nadav & Irene

Absolutely 5 out of 5. Fantastic knowledge, great character who connected with all my family members young and old, excellent driver, very friendly and easy going manner that allowed us to move at our pace and change things around to suit interests. And a genuine local guy who clearly loves to show guests his home and his island. We all felt it was one of the best trips we've ever done....and we've done lots!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a fantastic review!!!!

We have done a number of Tours By Locals around the world and this was by far our family's favorite! Tony's knowledge, agenda, and personality were awesome! I can not recommend this tour enough!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!!!! It was definitely a fun day and very happy you and your kids had a blast!!!!!
Teresa ParkerUnited States
This was the BEST private tour that I have booked for my groups through Tours by Locals. Tony was absolutely the most informative and accommodating tour guide that I (we) have had in past trips. He showed us places that we would have never experienced on ship excursions. Thank you, Tony (and Caroline) for this amazing "look" into your world and your beautiful island!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a great review!!!

We had a wonderful day (8 hours) traveling the entire island of Maui with Tony. He was very accommodating and gave us ample opportunities to photograph the many beautiful waterfalls of the rainforest (while it rained on us!). He showed us all the different lifestyles on the island as well as showing us the various types of geography of the island. Would recommend him highly to anyone traveling to Maui.

a great trip. Tony could not have been a better guide

AWESOME! Tony adapted the itinerary based on weather and wind conditions and optimize our experience. He taught three of us to paddleboard. My highlight was paddleboarding next to a majestic green sea turtle! He took us to a great snorkeling spot. As an experienced diver, he pointed out creatures of interest. Fantastic! As an extra, we made a run to a Costco close to port and bought local macadamia products before getting back on the cruise ship. He made us feel like family!
Marc IsraelUnited States
Tony treated us like family. The Road to Hana is a long day and Tony did a great job breaking up the ride with activities and stories. We had an awesome day, swimming in a cave, at Red Sand Beach, and under a waterfall! Great local food from Banana bread to lunch at a local Thai place. He went out of his way to get me some fresh passion fruit! He made a special stop at the church where Lindbergh was buried. He has lived the stories and the changes on Maui. Such a great day!
Tony was more than helpful & accommodating when It came to planning our tour because of a 12 month old baby we had with us. He made me feel at ease & comfortable about how the tour would be managed with my grand daughter in mind.The tour it's self was wonderful. The Island is beautiful and we had a great time with Tony.He proved to be exactly how I envisioned from our emails & more.He was very informative and sensitive to our needs under the circumstances with our baby. I can't fault him.

A once in a life time experience began on the summit of Haleakala - spectacular sunrise. Stopping on the way down; marvelled at the awesome views. My daughter's 21st birthday included a thrilling jet-ski ride and Tony surprised her with a fresh orchid lei and birthday cake. He was mindful of the weather (our safety) & attentive to all of our needs. Had a fabulous evening -great choice of Luau -amazing fire knife dancers.Tony went above and beyond to make sure we had an unforgettable day.Outstanding Guide!

Tony's meticulous planning & exceptionally customised tour was a fantastic way to enjoy so much of the island in comfort. His charming personality and laid back friendly demeanour made him an easy-travelling companion with an intimate tour that exceeded all expectations. His local knowledge, skilful driving,quick wit and selected stops included short hikes to hidden waterfalls and spectacular views meant that it felt more like an old friend sharing his love & passion for Maui. Exciting MUST do experience.

Tony, thank you again for taking us on the island tour. Everyone had a great time,the really liked diving off the cliffs. Highly recommend Tony's services as he lives in Hana and knows where to go. We oftened passed the large tour groups and the do it yourself guides, and we would go to places that they did not about, swam in caves,etc.. the banana bread was a big hit. Tony, thanks again and best of luck on the property sale. Jeff
We had three excellent guides in Hawaii. Donna in Honolulu, Tony in Maui and Laurence in Hilo. All three had a very different style and yet absolutely delightful and knowledgeable. They all went beyond the call of duty to please us. I would highly recommend all three of them
Joey SigonaUnited States
Tony is an amazing tour guide. The best way to experience the road to Hana is with him! Tony has amazing local knowledge and will cater your tour to your preferred activity level. I would highly recommend tony!
Great! Loved the tour, thanks again Tony!! :)
Yvonne CarrollUnited States
This was wonderful tour.Tony did a great job in a very limited time frame. It was especially great to be with someone who grew up on Maui. Tony is funny, knowledgeable, & exciting to be with. He usually does extreme sports but did an excellent job with 4 older people who were certainly not agile.
We could not have asked for a better guide. Tony was exceptional. He was fun, friendly and a wealth of knowledge regards the area. He took the teenagers stand up paddle boarding, taught them about the surf conditions and stayed with them the whole time. Nothing was too much trouble and he gave us a fantastic day at the beautiful Maui beaches. I would rate Tony as the best tour guide I have come across in my 30 years of travel.
