I wasn't too sure about taking an ATV tour; I hadn't done one before and something about roaring through the beautiful Kukuihaele forests on a noisy 4X4 seemed off to me. However, once out there I totally understand the draw of this type of activity! Our group had a blast navigating the winding and rocky trails above the Waipio Valley... More

One of our highlights of our vacation on Hawaii was our Ride The Rim adventure to the Waipio Valley. Our guides were not only attentive to our needs, but had safety and comfort in mind and provided some great history and cultural information. The report Ride is great fun - the views are indescribable and priceless!! Words hardly do justice... More

We were very excited about this tour. We arrived at 12:45 as directed for the 1-3pm tour. At 1:00pm the rest of the booking group (another 12 people - wedding party) had not yet arrived. At 1:15pm we were still waiting for them...and still sitting at the check-i desk. Finally they took my daughter and I up to the starting... More

This guest is correct. We had great difficulty with a large wedding party, giving us one ETA after another, resulting in us waiting for their arrival, which we usually do not do. Our policy for refunds is predicated on how much of our tour is completed in the event of difficulties. If an entire tour is enjoyed by the guests,... More

We've been to the Big Island a handful of times but this was the first time to Ride the Rim. It was an adventurous ride on the side-by-side and we seemed to hit every puddle along the way! The guides were all very helpful with the helmets and a short instruction. I'm glad we decided against the ATV just because... More

The Ride-the-Rim tour was a great getaway from the more heavily trafficked tourist areas. You can pilot your own ATV or opt to be a passenger on a larger ATV. You'll be given safety gear and training before being turned loose. The ride is not too difficult for the average adult as long as you pay attention, but challenging enough... More

The tour is very scenic and you learn a lot about Hawaiian culture and history from your guides. The ATV's and side-by-sides are a blast to ride through the scenic mountain trails.

Pat and Omar are fantastic tour guides! They both are very fun and knowledgeable. I am normally not a history fan but I thoroughly enjoyed learning about their heritage and the history of this amazing island. My husband and I had a great time. It was a great ride with gorgeous scenery. The 3 stops were breathtaking! The snacks and... More

My wife and I did this tour a few days ago. It was a fun trip. They guides were great and the scenic views were nothing short of spectacular. It is truly one of the best ways to see the valley and get a great history lesson with locals as your guides. When you see the valley you understand what... More

This is absolutely the best way to see the Valley of the Kings! Three special stops reveal sacred areas of Waipio including a phenomenal views of Hiilawe Falls. If you aren't awestruck by the natural beauty- then the ride on the ATV is a rush. You are allowed a dip in the pool of a waterfall but the water is... More
