We opted for the 2.5 hour tour.

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

We took the 5.5 hour horseback tour on a bad weather day. It was cold and rainy the entire day and they gave us the choice to either get our money back or continue on with the tour. We choose to go for it and were the only people on the tour for that day. Despite the fog and bad... More

We had the greatest time today with Kevin. We did a lot of research on what to do while we here on the big island and we found Waipio Ridge stables. I love riding horses and was in for just the experience of riding in hawaii, then we got there. Not only was I able to have a great ride,... More

My family and I had a great ride today. The 2.5 hour ride was just right. The scenery was spectacular, the horses gentle and well behaved and the weather was perfect. The guides Mahina and Roy are the best and are what made this a 5 star experience. They're both a lot of fun and shared lots of history and... More

Nice quite ride through the eucalyptus tree rainforest and listening to the tails of the region on how it transformed from a viable sugarcane region in to a useless eucalyptus tree rainforest in hopes of establishing a paper mill. Now there are those evasive trees whose only purpose now is to prevent massive erosion. I rated this low because of... More

Not having pre-booked, we arrived in Waipio hoping to get on a horse ride and were lucky enough to be the only family on our tour. We did the shorter 2 hour trip, a ride along the top rim with some amazing views! Took a few stops along the way for photos. Our guide Roy was great. Provided us with... More
