Overview of the Tour
Here we go! You’ve been on Hana Highway for probably a few minutes already, but we are literally just getting started.

How about a quick course on how to use the UCPlaces app? First, let me do the heavy lifting! You don’t need to move the map around or push a bunch of buttons. That’s my job. Just follow the app’s navigation and I will jump in and talk to you when the GPS tells me you have reached a Point Of Interest.

If you wanna stop the tour to take advantage of any of the amazing sites that we have along the way, go for it! You won’t need to restart the tour after a little excursion, unless you want to. When you start the tour again, use the “advanced” tab from the Start Tour page so you can pick which POI to start back up on. You can even scroll through that page to see where you’ve been and where you’d like to continue. But don’t forget to keep your phone charged and to re-enable your blue- tooth when you get out and back into your car.
Let’s keep going.

Hana Hwy, Kahului, HI 96732, USA
POI 2 Tour Image
Overview of the Tour
Believe me when I say this is gonna be a fantastic day for us! The drive from Paia, which is just ahead, to the Haleakala National Park and Pools of Ohe’o is about 2 hours, one way. As we go, I’ll be pointing out some epic sites and inviting you to go check them out. Prepare to spend your entire day taking in the beauty and majesty of the road to Hana. Now, you don’t have to stop at every site! You are gonna wanna save some time for the National Park, trust me. And if you are trying to complete the return trip before dark, just keep an eye on your watch.

I’ll also share some local lore, which is always entertaining, as well as some good old history. I’ll point out places to stop, eat and shop, but most importantly, where the restrooms are. You can count on me!

Remember not to rush through this tour! If you want to take pictures, by all means, please do! Just remember to also breathe in the fresh air, hear the happily chirping birds, and smell the sweet flowers. Just try to be in the moment. The drive is part of the journey, not just a way to get to the destination.
