What an awesome time we had on this thrilling adventure!!!!! Husband and son-in-law rode the ATV's with Pat and my daughter, myself and two grandsons (ages 15 & 11) rode in the Polaris with Jay. The men were given a lesson on the ATV operation and then two times around the course for a "test". We were on our way... More

What a fun, informative time. We rode through the forest to a waterfall and swam in the invigorating (chilling) waters. That's where we snacked. Then we rode to waipi'o rim for a spectacular view of the valley. Our tour guides were were very informative and ensured we were being safe. Thanks for a fun time.

My husband and I enjoy riding ATVs and thought this would be a fun adventure. I have driven ATVs before but they had a practice area to make sure I was comfortable driving one before we left. We went a great comfortable speed that allowed me to pay attention to and enjoy the surroundings. To say the view at the... More

What a trip! The landscape was breathtaking and the trails were a lot of fun! It had rained a little before our ride so the trails were muddy which allowed for a bit more exciting ride. The staff were awesome and made sure that we were safe and being mature about our riding. I would recommend this to anyone!

This was an INCREDIBLE experience! My cousin and I throughly enjoyed everything about it. We were so honored and grateful about how the guides shared who they were as people coming from the valley and what that meant to them! We left feeling so inspired and ready to take the world. Mucho mahalo! P.S. If you're thinking about doing this... More

We chose Ride the Rim because it allowed us an opportunity to see areas that we not accessible by car, and it sounded like fun to ride ATVs. We are so glad we chose this tour! Not only did Ray, Jamie, and Angel provide us with a great tour of the land and the views, they provided an educational background... More

We recently took our family of 5 on this tour. My wife and 14 year old daughter rode with a guide. I rode on an ATV, as did our 16 year old twins. They have had driver's ed, but have not driven an ATV before, however neither of them is a risk taker/envelope pusher, so we knew that they would... More

First of all, our apologies for not being as timely as usual. Our in-house mechanic was on the mainland on vacation, slowing down this repair considerably. Having been at this business for ten years now, I can tell you that this girl attempted to go around a puddle, caught an edge dropoff, DID hit the brake and the accelerator at... More

My husband and I had never rode ATV's before but it was so easy. The guides give you detailed instructions and have you do a practice run to be sure you are comfortable. There are lots of mud puddles along the way if you want to get really dirty. The trail isn't that beautiful except for some nice trees which... More

Highlight of my trip. The guides were so informative. Gave me a totally new respect for the Hawaiian culture. The respect the guides had for their culture was very impressive. What great people. Pat.. what an awesome guide you were. We learned so much about the plants along the way. Loved the trip!! You guys are great!!!

Ride the Rim was one of the highlights of our recent trip to the BI. The staff was super friendly and informative and the entire trip was well-organized and put together. Cultural information and background on the Valley was interesting and it was easy to see that the staff really cared about the land. Equipment was in good shape and... More
