Created and run by Emily Machernis, Epic Experience Maui has grown into a spectacular business specializing in personalized tours across the island of Maui. It has garnered over 227 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor as well as other 5-star reviews across different platforms. They are considered one of the best tours in the 808 (Maui County). Why is this? I believe it has to do with the fact that they focus on one group at a time. This allows for a tour specifically tailored to what YOU want, not a predetermined, run-of-the-mill route.
Our journey began by meeting our guide, Christian, in Paia. Once my wife and I arrived in the public parking area by city hall, we were kindly greeted by Christian and his 13-year-old poodle, Joline. After the usual pleasantries, we jumped into the cozy van and began our trip on the Road to Hana.
About 10 minutes into the drive, we lost cellphone reception. This will happen to just nearly everybody traveling to the rural part of East Maui. Thinking back, this made the trip that more enjoyable. There were no distractions, and it allowed us to get to know Christian and Joline. It was at this point that I was able to explain exactly what I was looking for – I wanted an adventure off the beaten path. I wanted something unique and memorable!
