My family did this on July 12. The WOH staging area was easy to find, and best of all fresh macadamia nuts, bananas and passionfruit from the orchard were displayed for guests to sample before the ride. Incredibly beautiful valley; the guided drive down to the valley alone was almost worth the price of admission. Mika and Ronald were our... More

My family has had some really good experiences on horseback riding excursions to downright awful/scary experiences. Because of the bad ones...makes me nervous booking horseback riding but it's something my family loves to do so took a chance. Glad we did! We first got in a special 4x4 van to go down a steep road to get to the valley... More

Worth the trip to see Valley floor and learn about the local history and see the scenery and waterfalls!

Waipi'o Valley is spectacular place to ride a horse. Scenic surroundings, with a peaceful stream running through the valley, birds singing, helps one to appreciate the wonders of nature.

we took our son and his fiance and we all had a good time. what made the trip special was that both guides were local, humorous and knowledgeable. we've been on other horseback rides in the area (including a ranch near waimea) but this one was the most enjoyable. the valley is such a special place and it was great...

You park and meet at their headquarters (only porta potties there by the way, and bushes on the valley floors!), then get in some 4 wheel drive Toyotas to head down into the valley. We had Mika as our leader, and he was really funny and knowledgeable, since he actually lives on the valley floor. The road down wasn't nearly... More

WOH does a great job with its horseback tour of waipio valley. The horses are well trained and cared for. Mika is very knowledgable about the flora and history of the valley. The kids got a kick out of Stacy. What a character!

i cant really fault this tour company. they took us on a horseride in the valley. it's not their fault that the trail is shared with cars, making us pull over every time one passes by. and we walked on a trail and then backtracked. it all felt very standard and not special. that was fine. then, the guides, who...
