Iao Valley and Maui Tropical Tram

On your Iao Valley and Maui Tropical Tram excursion you'll visit the Maui Tropical Plantation, a 60-acre working plantation where you can discover Hawaii's rich agricultural history. Enjoy a fully narrated, 40-minute tram ride that takes you through breathtaking scenery and explores where many of the plantation's crops are cultivated. Along the way, you'll learn all about coconuts and witness a coconut-husking demonstration. You'll also see where sugarcane, coffee, macadamia nuts, pineapple, papaya, mango, guava and bananas are grown. There are plenty of samples for tasting and a gift shop selling a wide variety of Maui-grown goodies.

No tour of the Maui countryside would be complete without a visit to Iao Needle, the straight-up pinnacle at the heart of the Valley Island's western range. This iconic, green-mantled rock outcropping is one of Maui's most recognizable landmarks. The Needle is located in the 4,000-acre Iao Valley State Park in Central Maui, just west of Wailuku. There is a well-marked, paved pedestrian path leading from the parking lot to view Iao Needle, and the ridge-top lookout provides incredible views of Iao Valley.

Please Note: This tour is similar to our Best of Maui; however, the Best of Maui includes an additional stop, which is a visit to the Maui Ocean Center. Please keep this in mind when booking tours for Kahului.

Iao valley & Maui tropical tram
December 29, 2019
The bus ride in the beautiful Iao Valley of Maui was led by a local driver who knew the history of Maui and Hawaii well. I learned a lot about the Iao Valley, which is very beautiful and full of ancient Hawaiian history. This was not a hurried tour, our driver stopped anytime he saw something interesting for us to see. One of the stops was at an educational Hawaiian plantation. Our guide recommended the local ice cream (yummy) and gave us tickets to take the tram ride. The tram was like a zoo tram but it was an efficient way to view the groves of indigenous Hawaiian fruit; Jackfruit, bananas, avocados, mangos and pineapple to name a few. She made one stop to demonstrate how to open a coconut. She was very experienced and got a loud round of applause. I enjoyed this tour, learning more than if I had rented a car and drove on my own; wasting time looking for what to see and do.

The trip to the valley was enjoyable with stops along the way to visit gardens and scenic viewing. The Iao Valley is a must see on Maui. We loved the plantation tour. Ice cream here was the best!
