Booked over the phone an afternoon ride for myself and family. Read directions to pick up spot and it said on website one hour from Hilo. Left waikoloa area with enough time to arrive around 12:15. Instead it took 1 1/2 hours from Hilo and arrived at 12:45 with ride time at 1. Was not worried as we were early... More

Great way to see Wapio Ridge/valley. You meet the guide at the Waipio Valley Artworks store off Kukuihaele Road about 500 feet west of the intersection of Kukuihaele Road/Mud Lane. Parking is to the back of the store. Guide will transport you on a van to the horse stable. The Guide offers to carry bulky materials for you such as... More

Such an amazing experience, one of the top two highlights of our trip to the island. The views were straight out of heaven, and the guide (Roy) was friendly and answered our many questions about the area. Just fabulous, go.....you will have a memory you'll never forget! Note: lunch is NOT included on the short ride.

This was a great way to end our amazing time in Hawaii. We had a very relaxing trail ride along the rim of Waipi'o Valley and then continued onto the secret waterfall in the rainforest. We had a beautiful picnic next to the waterfall and then took a swim in the crisp water. The horses were fun and my boys... More

Such a beautiful ride with great views. I did both the rim ride and the valley ride. The company with the valley ride I was not impressed with, at all, but Kevin & Joe with Waipio Ridge Stables were top notch. They seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I was impressed with the safety/handling instructions at the start of the... More

The only thing I can do is echo all of the praise already left in the reviews here. Even after reading so many five star reviews, my expectations were exceeded. Our guides, Kevin and Joe(? I'm so bad with names), were so personable and knowledgable. My fiancé and I are very shy, but it was so easy to talk to... More

We opted for the 2.5 hour tour. We were originally scheduled for a Tuesday AM tour, but it poured that morning, and the tour office was able to reschedule us for Saturday.My 11 y/o daughter is an experienced rider, but the other 3 of us had never ridden before. Our guides, Kevin and Chauncey, did an outstanding job of teaching... More

This was a fantastic horseback experience. The scenery is beautiful and getting to ride up hills through forest trails instead of on a dirt road makes the experience truly unique. Gorgeous views of the valley and the waterfalls below. Kevin, the guide is very knowledgeable and helpful with tips to make you a better rider. Would do it again in... More

We took the 2.5 hour horseback ride with Kevin and really enjoyed it! He gave us a lot of good historical information and his own perspective of life on the Big Island. The horses were gentle and well behaved. Views were incredible!

Hello, First I'd like to say thanks to Joe and Roy, they were awesome guides, very friendly, and provided a great experience. We did the 5-6 hour trip up to the waterfall and natural pool. The ride there was magnificent, and riding up to the edge of a cliff to view Waipio Valley was breath taking!! We've done other rides,... More
