The Iao Valley is a lush area with lots of culture! Tucked away in the west Maui mountains, it’s fairly easy to get to. Rushing rivers and the historic Iao Needle will fulfill your desire for adventure in the tropical rainforest of Maui.

Upcountry offers views, farms and amazing hikes. We will see the last lava flow of Maui, which is on the far south side of the island, in Kihei. Huge fields of dried up lava rocks will make you feel like you’re on another world.

We can make stops along the way including secret beaches, amazing restaurants and shaved ice.

  • More than just a tour of Maui, Kelsey will deliver!

    Kelsey was fun to be around, courteous, amiable, punctual, and a genuinely good person.  We thoroughly enjoyed our experience in Maui.  We were all very glad that we had Kelsey with us and would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to experience Maui without the stress of driving, planning, and finding someone to take your picture.

  • Kelsey is just amazing! BOOK HER! 

    You won't regret it. Both days with Kelsey were my favourite days in Maui, making some of the best memories. She is everything you can ask for in a tour guide. She knowledgeable, flexible, keeps you safe, has everything you didn't think you need (extra towels, mosquitoe repellant, etc). She will customize any trip and that is just fantastic.

  • The smartest thing we did on our trip to Maui.

    We had a joyful day with Kelsey. We arranged the day so we could have lunch at an authentic BBQ, which was incredibly delicious. We saw the best stops that a big tour bus would miss. We ended up going to the Iao Valley and waded in a mountain stream. Wow. Check that off my bucket list! Booking Kelsey was the smartest thing we did on our trip to Maui.
