Great views and great guides of local descent. Good history and local mores of Hawaiian locals. But ride itself was very controlled and mor like a parade of atvs I am sure that this was for insurance purposes,but spent a lot of time foe 3 beautiful views.

My big family of 11 had the absolute time of our lives. We were a bit scared at first but ray and the gang made us feel very comfortable about riding the atvs. Ray and his brother gave a great insightful tour with much information about the valley that was facinating. My favorite part of course was swimming in the... More

Drove 1 hour and 15 minutes from our resort in North Kona to the check in at Waipi'o Valley Artworks. Before you go on your ATV tour, the tour guides watches you ride your ATV on their test track. If you fail, you will ride in their buggies. Also, you will need to be over 15 years old to be... More

My family took our annual vacation to the Big Island, HI. We've been on the island previously, and said we'd do this on the next visit when the kids were older. WOW! We have 2 sets of teens, a pair of 16 y.o. and a pair of 13 y.o. who wanted to "Ride the Rim". What an amazing tour -... More

We'd previously been on an ATV tour (with another company) in the Kohala region and really enjoyed it. We decided to do the "Ride the Rim" tour since we love the Waipi'o Valley. Our group was four adults, ages 30 - 57. Every one of us had a fantastic time! Pat, Jay and Jaimie had so much experience to share... More

My husband and I saw this advertised on the Hawaiian channel in our hotel in Kona. We were able to book a ride for later in the week. Excellent decision on our part! We chose to do the Ranger ride-along so we could take photos and not worry about driving. However, clients can choose to drive their own ATVs. Our... More

All I can say is wow. We had a great time. Pat, Jay, and Jaimie were wonderful guides. The best review I can give is a video. But I could not post it in the app.

This was so much fun. We saw some beautiful country and Waipio Valley. Gorgeous! The guides were great. They really made us feel at home. It is a little expensive but worth it because this is private land. This was deep and rich history of Hawaii all on a bumpy, fun, and beautiful tour. We highly recommend.

My wife and I loved this experience. Everything about it was simply wonderful. From the care that the guides (Res and Brennan) to in making my wife feel comfortable driving an ATV for the first time, to the time they took suggesting other places/things to do once the tour was over it was a first rate experience. We booked the... More
