My wife and I were on our honeymoon. We got really lucky that day since we were the only ones who showed up on the tour, so we had it all to our selves. Earlier in the morning, we did the quad bike tour (Ride the rim) and touring the upper hills and we were wishing to get the chance... More

You definitely will NOT want to miss out on this tour in literally one of the most beautiful places on earth! I did the waipio on horseback adventure ride in October 2014 with my husband and two kids. It was all of our favorite thing we did on the big island. Two guides take you down the steepest paved rode... More

We did the Waipio Valley Horseback Adventure ride in August of 2014. It was a beautiful ride through an incredibly scenic valley. The guides were very experienced and helpful, and the horses were well behaved and very surefooted, even on riverbeds made up of round river-rock. Everyone had a wonderful time and saw some awesome sights. We also learned about... More

The valley is literally gorgeous, you can't believe how much. And the guides are super friendly and knowledgable. Most important, they live in the valley themselves, off the grid, and are just fascinating to get to know and hear from as they share what life is like in the valley - so different from our east coast life! The horses... More

What a stunning way to see the Waipi'o valley!! It is a gorgeous slice of heaven. The waterfalls are a spectacular sight. The owners, wranglers were friendly, helpful and very informative. You see vegetation in this valley that you can't see anywhere else. I would recommend this out-of-the-way adventure on your Big Island. I also recommend stopping at Grandma's in... More

This is a beautiful ride in the Waipio Valley - an excellent way to see a part of the island that would be very hard to experience otherwise. The staff is very friendly and the horses are gentle and easy. I would caution that they didn't have helmets, not even for children. I think that's a major oversight. Also, I... More

We went with family, adult and teenage children. The check in gate was a little hard to find off the main highway but we got on the second time by. Easy check in procedure. You take a van from this area to the Waipi'o valley via a very steep road. Go to the Lookout before or after your ride for... More

We found this trip to be very relaxing with stunning scenery. We both rode growing up, so we are used to being on horses. These horses knew what they were doing and needed no guidance whatsoever - well maybe some encouragement if there was something delicious on the ground. If you want to stop and take a photo, just stop... More

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
