This was our first ATV experience and it was really amazing. My wife was too afraid to drive, so she could drive along withe buggy. The guides were really nice and funny and took us to some beautiful viewpoints. Would certainly do it again anytime!

My husband and I are baffled by most of the 5-star reviews for "Ride the Rim" and wonder if we were on the same ATV excursion as most. First the good points: the guides foremost were safety-minded and friendly, and the ATVs are new(er) and in great condition, as was the riding gear (helmet and skull cap), altho we could... More

RideTheRim is sorry this rider did not enjoy their experience. Every tour is different as we take all comers - folks who are ATV aficionados as well as ATV newbies. Clearly this tour was comprised of slower newbies, who we try to put near the back so they can go slower, but it does take some time on the trail... More

An exhilarating ride on the Rim of Waipio Valley and through the Eucalyptus Forest. Would I do it all over again? In a heartbeat! It is a Bucket List requirement (my opinion) if you have the opportunity. I really enjoyed one of the stops at a beautiful waterfall with swimming hole surrounded by lush forest. Another two stops overlooking the... More

Can't say enough good things about the guide Les. knows the area and even offered to let us visit his valley home when he was not even going to be there. Friendly and fun, rode this trail with them multiple times. Enjoy if you go. Know you missed out if you didn't.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Ride the Rim ATV tour. The guides were very helpful and attentive. I recommed you wear your swimming shorts/costume and take a dip in the pool at the waterfall. You can climb up to the fall and jump off the rocks to the left - very refreshing!

The guides are really great, very experienced and safety minded. They took good care of training my husband who has never driven anything more than an Autopia car at Disneyland! They provided ponchos for us because of the rainy conditions. The views are amazing. The swimming hole isn't that exciting, but I'm sure more fun on a hot day (which... More

We got wet and muddy on this ride - it was a BLAST! The trails were great for me (a beginner) and my husband (who's been riding since he was a kid). The swim in the beautiful waterfall pool was exhilarating! The whole team at this place were really knowledgeable about the area and its history. We had a great... More

We were lucky to have the tour all to ourselves! It was incredible! Our tour guide was so informative & fun! We're going back this Thanksgiving to share it with our friends! Can't wait!

I went with my family on the Ride the Rim ATV experience this afternoon. We had a great time and I was wondering why I didn't have one of these ATVs growing up. For me, the highlights is actually riding the ATV. The views were ok (it was raining/cloudy) when we went but we really didn't go for the views.... More
