Tuesday Feb 24, 2015 Jennifer and I booked this tour through the Aloha Concierge at the Aina Nalu. The price was quite reasonable for the length of the drive to the ranch and the horseback ride itself. Desiree and Kammie were our guides. These 2 women were very friendly and open and answered any and all questions that we had... More

The horses were very well behaved, the place is beautiful, our cowboy was so much fun! We were able to gallop and had a very nice BBQ lunch! I highly recommend this adventure!

We did the 12:30 ride one afternoon. It was not too hot as it was partly cloudy. The horses were very well mannered but I did have a concern that a couple of them had very heavy coats. One was really panting hard by the time we got back after galloping uphill twice. Our guide Butch was very nice and... More

Great ride along the mountain! Go in the morning, because it's so hot!! The guides were great, stopped along the way and took pictures for you at great locations. The horses were in autopilot, and just followed along, we were allowed to gallop in 2 places if you wanted. I guess not many places allow that, it seemed like a... More

I cannot recommend The Mendes Ranch highly enough. The crew that took us on our tour were fantastic and so professional. The views are stunning. The crew are beyond accommodating and they have a coupe beautiful spots where they take your camera and take pictures of you which is a great touch and not like other tourist spots who have... More

I booked this for my daughter and I while on Maui. We did the 845am ride. We were the only ones on that ride which made it a little more extra special. The views before we even started the ride were amazing. The horses were gentle and tame. Our guide was very nice and very informative. She took many photos... More

What a great crew and horses. We had a great time on the trails, the scenery and views are magnificent. We even got to run like the wind in a few spots. My Mom (70) did fantastic. We have some great memories and pictures for sure. Thanks Quick Smoike you charmer.

Jan 2 2015 My daughter is a very accomplished rider and I have ridden for many years (I also used to teach teens how to ride) so I thought a ride on Maui would be the perfect way to end our vacation on the island. I searched Tripadvisor for THE best place to ride. I do have to say that... More

The view during the ride is breath taking. We drove there from Lahaina taking road 30 and then 340 but along the north coast. So basically you are going North from Lahina on 30 and then take 340. It is a road that takes you along the ridge of the cliff on the north part of the island. The road... More
