I chose to hike down but booked with the Mule Rides!! They were awesome from the very start. The booking experience was so personal with Roy texting me to make sure everything was confirmed. The arrival was handled smoothly and I was sent on my way down the sea cliffs. I was on my own but quickly joined up with... More

The Molokai Mule Ride was our favorite tour of all the excursions we did between Kauai and Molokai. RJ and JR were so friendly and able to calm any nerves we may have had. While the ride at first seems scary, very quickly you learn that the mules are sure footed and it becomes easy to sit back and enjoy... More

We've been to Hawaii many times although this was our first time to Molokai. Molokai is a wonderful island but the mule ride was definitely the highlight both of the island itself but the entire trip. Everything about the ride was wonderful: RJ, JR, Lulu and Audrey were wonderful guides, the trip down the sea cliffs is breathtaking, the history... More

When we checked in to the mule ride we were warmly greeted by JR and made to truly feel like the "aunties and uncles" we were called the rest of the day. The ride was great fun. Even though I am not an experienced rider , Stripes the mule gave me unquestioned confidence. The skinners, RJ, Lulu, and Audrey were... More

Took my wife to Maui and Molokai for 10 days and if we had one thing to do again this would be it. The mule skinners were informative and so helpful and friendly, the views were unbelievable and is something the camera pictures cannot capture the beauty and awe of where you start and where you end. We did not... More

We chose to hike down, but the mule handling staff were helpful to all in the group. At the bottom the tour was equally enjoyable and we enjoyed learning about the history of Kalaupapa. Beautiful scenery during the hike. Hike is somewhat challenging but very do-able. Surprised us that the hike down was more challenging than up. So glad we... More

We went as a mixed group- some hikers and some adventurous enough to ride the mules. JR and the whole crew were amazing! Lulu took the time with all of us to make sure we were well cared for and to genuinely thank each snd every one of us. They were able to share the real aloha spirit. An outstanding... More

My wife and I are experienced horse riders and found the ride to be very challenging. It takes about 90 minutes each way and the path is often very steep, rocky and wet (when we were there). The mules are generally sure footed and you have to trust them. But it is unnerving as they are making their way down... More
