We travelled to the Big Island for the fourth time and were looking for something special to do for my husband's birthday. We knew this would be a high energy action packed day. What we didn't really realize was just how profoundly gorgeous this part of the island is, and how amidst the noise of the ATV ride would be... More

Our family of 3 - my husband, 18 year old son, and I did this tour last week. It was the highlight of our 8 days on the Big Island. None of us had ever ridden an ATV before and we had no problem learning to ride. The guides were exceptional! They were from the area and knew the Valley... More

This was so fun and easy. I have ridden ATV's before but most of the group had never and they all did great. These bikes are in excellent condition and are super easy to drive. We (mom and 8 year old) drove the new tandom bike and it was super fun.There is a another car/atv that seats 4, maybe? kids... More

All I have to say is ask about the brakes and make them tell you! I asked Rey how to use the brakes and he told me I wouldn't need to use it.... it was my first time operating an ATV and guess who crashed. Not only did they not ask if I was ok they told me I might... More

This party has now written their SECOND bad review, now by the wife. The first one written by the husband had to be taken down by TripAdvisor. Our ATVs are all 2013 models and later, we have a full time mechanic and they are maintained scrupulously. Our brakes all work and folks often comment as to how well our machinery... More

What an incredible experience! Not only was it fun, it was absolutely stunning to stand over the valley and take in its splendor!! The guides were amazing. Omar was hilarious and patient, Travis was super sweet and a great hugger, and Ray...oh my heart...Ray has the sweetest disposition. He is a wealth of information and has such a calming spirit....

We were on the Big Island last week and saved the ATV tour for our last full day of vacation. We definitely saved the best for last! There were four of us adults who all rode the ATVs through incredible Eucalyptus forests with stops at some of the most amazing viewpoints! Our 4 kids had a total blast with "Bullwinkle"... More

We have lived on this island for over 3 years now. THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE NUMBER ONE FUN ACTIVITY OUT HERE. Ray, Kaimana and the Sheriff took great acer of us and gave the right mix of safety ad flexibility to allow for some awesome ATV ride with lots of muddy fun. Please ignore the reviews that complain about... More

We booked this tour as a must see ... one of the top 25 things to do on the Big Island. We have also taken a 2 hour helicopter ride all through the Waipo Valley. You do get to ride ATV's that despite being driven HARD over some very rough torrain are in decent shape. You do get to see... More

Riding ATVs on a mountain trail is clearly not for everyone. RideTheRim, therefore, is not for everyone. Our Honda Rancher 420s have independent suspensions and provide a superior ride as compared to ATVs without this suspension. Most importantly, however, is that the acreage above Waipio Valley is termed the 'rim' by local hikers, huntsman and other residents. Folks from the... More

We really enjoyed our ATV ride. Our guides were very knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts on our trail ride. The views were amazing and the waterfall was a great stop. Our guides Pat and Les were great and made the trip even more enjoyable.

We really enjoyed this adventure yesterday, although it's fun to do ATV we really liked personal touch of riding the buggy with talk story from our driving, Pat. He was very knowledgeable when he shared the culture & history. The sacred swimming hole was cold but a must do because public is not allowed without tour. The grandeur of Waipi'o... More
