Take part in a journey through Hawai’i’s past that explores both the prominent and lesser-known corners of historic Lahaina. Local guides will welcome you with a chant at the sacred Hauola birthing stone, a place of healing and creation, and then embark on a tour that begins 1700 years ago with the arrival of the first Polynesians. Learn about the town's harbor and gateway to the King's compound. After a stop at the remnants of The Brick Palace of Kamehameha I, the first king to unite the Hawaiian Islands, you will step through a taro patch to emerge in the year 1823 at The Baldwin Home, to learn of Hawaii's missionary era.  Move swiftly on through time to the plantation era down Luakini Street, to explore the area where the immigrant plantation workers lived and worshiped. Your walk continues down Waine’e Street to Waiola Church and Cemetery – the final resting place of Hawaiian royalty. From this vantage point, the power of the surrounding mountains is easily grasped. Your guides share knowledge of the significance of these mountains to the Hawaiians, an important element in understanding Hawaiian culture and why the chiefs chose to settle in this area. Lahaina’s ancient past is revealed while strolling through its oldest cemetery. A chant is offered while entering the sacred realm of Moku‘ula, the former home of Hawai'i's royalty.  Here, the significance of this revered site is explained to you in full.  Your walking tour ends near the former surfing grounds of Hawaiian high chiefs--near The Shops at 505 Front Street, a short walk from the Lahaina Harbor.

Participants must be able to walk in the direct sun up to 2 hours over approximately 1.25 miles. Babies should be in a stroller. Not recommended for guests in wheelchairs due to the loose dirt/gravel and narrow roadways. Video and audiotaping of the tour is not allowed.
