My family and friends have enjoyed riding ATV's at the waipio rim tour many times! This time unfortunately, I got my menstral the morning of our tour. When it's my time, I get sick as a dog, on the flore kine! There was no possible way I was going to make it's so I had to cancel. Their policy says... More

This party booked a PRIVATE tour. Private tours require that fourteen seats be purchased, no matter how many are in the party, no matter how many show up or don’t show up. No other folks are allowed to book on a private tour, it is PRIVATE. We shut down further bookings of any sort for this time slot and turned... More

My husband and I were in Waipio Valley area for 2 days and one afternoon we had some fun doing the Ride the Rim ATV Tour! We booked this tour in advance and we were glad we did because they fill up fast! Waipio Valley is beautiful, unfortuantely, the day we rode was very overcast and cloudy/foggy. We did not... More

We have traveled all over the world and this is one of the best tours we have ever done. Ray, Jay and Reez were great guides with personal knowledge of the area (versus scripted which you get on some tours) as Ray and Jay grew up in the valley and Reez in Waimea. You had plenty of quad time and... More

I live on Big Island and have for over 10 years now so I'm not easily wowed by many tours now...this will be the exception this year. I took this tour on my BD with my daughter and her boyfriend visiting from the East Coast and it was a spectacular day. The ATV were easy to manage and I felt... More

What a great day. You get to experience the Waipio Valley like no one else can. The tour takes you through through forests and mud puddles ending up a various beautiful lookouts over the valley. The stops along the way are perfectly timed and you get to learn about the history and culture of the valley and its locals all... More

This was an awesome adventure! If you are only in town for a short visit and really want to see Waipio, this is the way to do it! Aside from DIY, Ride The Rim has one of the most exclusive views into Waipio Vallay as the helicopters are no longer allowed to fly. It's an awesome ride through stunning jungle... More

This is the best adventure on the island, I've been zip lining, snorkeling and a lot of other typical tourist things to do but this was the best. Ray and the other tour guides made it a safe and wonderful trip. They gave us wonderful insights into the native customs, activities, foods and history. If they had an all day... More

We rode along in the Polaris with one of the tour guides and it was awesome. Our driver grew up in the valley and talked to us about the area history, plants, etc. He picked us numerous different fruits along the way to try. All fruits were delicious. I was able to take a lot more pictures riding in the... More

We spent our last day on the island taking this tour. My hubby loves ATVs (used to race them). I'd never driven one plus I like to take pictures so I opted to ride in the buggy. Our guides, Ray and Pat, were great. Ray really knew his local history and taught us quite a bit. Pat made sure that... More
