I see this company no longer offers this ride into the crater, to bad, it was such a beautiful ride. I'm a little tarty in my review, we did this ride last June, but I'll write it anyways. Hopefully there's another company that can offer a similar ride or this company will start them back up. The ride starts off... More

We did the 1.5 hr Mauka Ride and actually got more than we expected. The tour guide was very friendly and was able to give us some really interesting historical information on Hawaii and the area where we road. The views from the Ranch were amazing. We decided to drive up to the summit of Haleakala after the ride but... More

We are experienced horse people who have been to a lot of trail rides all over the country. Even though the crater ride has been removed and despite a cloudy/misty morning, we had a great time! Shar, our guide was funny, genuine and very friendly. My horse Tonto, was amazing, he was so responsive, so obedient. My daughter wanted to... More

This was great!! our Tourguide Johnny was very knowledgeable about the area even though he was very new. He made it a fun and educational experience. I would love to do this again and we got some really great pictures.

We had an incredibly lovely tour around the side of Haleakala. The views were breathtaking. Johnny, our guide, was very friendly and accommodating. It was a really great ride that lasted for two hours.

We rode here about 5 years ago and were looking forward to returning. It was just as great. We took the two hour morning ride at 11am. Johnny, our guide, was fantastic! We was really knowledgable, pointing out loads of plants and wildlife, ensuring we all felt comfortable on our horses. He was really friendly and made you feel completely... More

I am so happy to have done this. Have never been riding before. The instructor took us to one of the most beautiful spots on the island to view the whole south side up the west coast. Absolutely breath taking. And we actually saw wild pig which apparently were rare.

A group of us did the Haleakala Ranch ride and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately they do not to the Haleakala Rim ride anymore, and we were a little disappointed that we didn't get to do that one. HOWEVER, the ride on the ranch WAS beautiful. We got to see the beautiful slopes of Maui and our guide was awesome. He... More
