“Great experience and new perspective on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We have enjoyed riding at Piiholo Ranch each of our last three trips to Maui. When we asked our kids what one activity they absolutely wanted to do, this was it (and they have done it all . . . ). Our recent ride was with Frenchie and Morgan as guides. They were both wonderful. The scenery is spectacular and the horses were excellent. I should add that we are from Montana and have owned horses of our own. These were not your trail weary, rode out horses who won't respond to the reins. They were the best I have ever seen on a commercial trail ride.

Thanks to the Piiholo crew for a great experience. We'll see you again when we are back in Maui!

“We loved it !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Following a recommendation by our host, we booked a two hour ride at the Piiholo Ranch. Both my wife and I are totally novice riders and thanks to the good introduction of our guide Frenchie (Merci!) we felt at home on the backs of our horses right away. The horses where all very well kept. The ride took us through the up-country of Maui, across green pastures, up to a lookout with a beautiful view of Maui. We really enjoyed this experience!

“Consistently wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We try to get to Maui yearly - Most recently this past October. We always make time for Piiholo Ranch stables for a ride. There are stables much closer to our condo, but, Piiholo Ranch is the only place for us. The people are super friendly and accomodating. Their horses are lively and the views on the property are breathtaking! We have come to request our favorite horses, and, time and again, the staff comes through. Thanks to Tamalynn and her great staff.

“Scenic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

My husband and daughter did the 2 hour advance tour. They had a great time. The land was beautiful and the guide, Morgan, was awesome. Very in tune with them. She took pictures for them and pick fruit. They got to go at their own pace.
