- Wedding: January 2014
I could really use some opinions on what to do if you have have personal experience with Maui or know someone who does!
So, in late March Darling Husband and I are going on our honeymoon to Maui, Hawaii! We are sooo excited. We have a couple of excursions in mind, but now that the wedding is over we are seriously starting to plan this honeymoon.
Recently we have been getting mixed reviews from friends/family on a particular ‘excursion’ that we want to do. We are very outdoorsy type people and we are very excited to do the Road to Hana! Originally we were planning on driving it ourselves, but then after telling a couple people that we were planning to drive it ourselves, we were told to absolutely do a bus tour instead. We were told the road can be dangerous and that also, the person driving will miss a lot of the sites to see. Not to mention, I’ve read that honeymooners shouldn’t do this drive together, because it can cause fights/bickering. Haha.
However, the cons of doing a bus tour, in our eyes, is that it’s like a twelve hour day. And that the bus stops where IT wants to stop, and we are very limited on how much time we will spend at each location. Meaning, that we won’t really get a chance to do some of the hikes that we want to do. Plus, I don’t really like being on a time crunch, I like to go our own pace.
Anyways, everyone that we talk to who has been to Maui tells us to do something different. Some tell us the bus tour is a must and some tell us to drive it ourselves.
If anyone has any personal experience or advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated! I don’t want to regret whatever decision we make! Thank you!!
