What to do and see in Lahaina, Hawaii (HI): The Best Walking Tours

November 30, 2021 Kandra Bartel

Lahaina, the former Hawaiian capital, was the center of the global whaling trade, and its Historic District is a National Historic Landmark. Traditional Hawaiian luaus, surf lessons and tours on horseback are fun, but let’s be realistic—you wouldn’t be in Hawaii if you didn’t want to go to the beach. Try Ka’anapali Beach, one of Maui’s best.

Drive was very nice but the information that was passed from the tour guide to us was the most impactful! Tom was very knowledgable, good sense of humor, and pleasant to talk with throughout the day. His calm demeanor, under such stressful driving routes, was very impressive. Waterfalls were beautiful and timing/pace was good overall. Highly recommend the tour over trying to go at it yourself! If at all possible, ask for Tom as your tour guide! And leave him a tip after your tour and/or a review here! Thanks Tom!

We have moved to a new location! We are now located at 820 Olowalu Village Rd, next to the Olowalu General Store on the way to Lahaina! We are the oldest butterfly farm in Hawaii and the only one that offers private tours of a butterfly farm in the State. We are a certified Monarch Waystation and strive to save the butterflies through propagation, research and education. We’re the only place in the Islands to see live Hawaiian butterflies in our walk in butterfly flight house. Unlike Mainland butterfly farms, all of our butterflies are home bred and hand raised on our organic farm. We do not purchase or ship in our butterflies from abroad, therefore all of our butterflies are endemic to Hawaii.

Inclusions: Hands on tour of the only butterfly farm in Hawaii

My partner decided to do a ghosthunt in Chicago on a Friday night to learn a little bit more about the neighborhood we live in, and boy we're glad we did it! Tony is the BEST tour guide--super knowledgeable about the historical, the strange, the weird, and the paranormal! We started off in front of the history museum and wound our way through Lincoln Park, around the zoo, and eventually ended up at a nondescript parking lot down the street from us which happens to be the site of the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Along with his encyclopedic knowledge, Tony brought some ghost hunting gear for our little group, so we had fun chasing EMF around the park while hearing stories of the various hauntings. All in all, this is a fantastic experience, well worth your time if you like history and ghost stories.

Alec was super accommodating from the start. He picked my daughter and me up from the hotel, gauged our adventure level, and we were off. We did the half day tour and it was jam packed! Bamboo forrest, water falls, lunch...it was all fantastic. Along the way Alec was caring - did we need anything, be careful with your footing, want more pictures, etc. Really glad we chose Jungle Tours Maui for this experience. I didn't want a large group to be tromping around with us so a private tour was perfect. Highly recommended!
