What an amazing trip to Maui! I did a solo trip to Maui in December and visited both Hana (w/ Bamboo forest) + Haleakala with Holo Holo's owner, Jasmine, and it was an incredible experience! There's honestly no other way to visit Maui than to start your trip with Holo Holo. Maui and Hawaii as a whole, has such rich history and culture, and YES we love the beautiful beaches and waters, but there's so much more to the island than that. Doing Hana and Haleakala with Jasmine was literally like exploring Maui with a local -- Jasmine introduced me to the foods, the species, the waters (waterfalls, ocean, etc), the land, and she gave me so many great recommendations from a locals' perspective to take with me on the rest of m
y journey.

Jasmine does a PHENOMENAL job giving you an experience that touches your five senses as you explore the geography, varying climates, music, etc etc. I was left completely blown away, and it gave me a different lens to explore the rest of the island with! As someone who has traveled to 40+ countries, I gotta say that Holo Holo does it exceptionally well. I felt just like family and will definitely be back in the future!
