While the experience was neat, the sunrise beautiful and the ride fun, there were a few updates I think are needed. For one, the "breakfast" was gross coffee and a gas station-like pastry. The "office" was dirty and other than watching the safety video, the stop did not seem necessary. The ride should be split up by riders who feel comfortable going fast and those that don't (we felt a bit cheated since there were a few scared/conservative riders). Finally, the day was a bit strung out (it was a 10 hr day and could have been an hour shorter), we ended up at a lunch place we didn't have a say in but had to pay for ourselves and overall the day was a bit more expensive than we thought it should be (paid $150). Again, glad we did it and would encourage others to go, but think improve,nets can be made and people should know what they are getting into.

My wife and I were picked up at our condo, took the tour to the top of Haleakala and I rode a bicycle 26 miles down to the ocean. The trip was very well planned and our guides, Rob and Tom, were great. It was challenging and scary at times but what a rush!! The views were spectacular when you had a chance to enjoy them. A big recommendation if you want a thrill.

We came to Maui this time around with the intention of making the sunrise and ride and we were not disappointed! We got to the top early and got a great spot on the edge for the sunrise. Then our guide Mike made the ride both fun and educational. He shared all the cool local history and knowledge with us. Shannon was his partner and she was great...they both made this experience perfect! Thanks Mike and Shannon!

Mike was an amazing, down-to-earth, patient, funny, and helpful guide!!! He informed us of local information as we drove up the Volcano even at the early hour he seemed wide awake. We were up the Volcano in time for the best viewing location for the Sunrise (wear everything warm you have) and gave us great instructions etc for the ride down. Made everyone feel confident about the impending ride. Gave more local information on the way down and pointed out points of interest etc. I regularly go mountain biking and this ride was still mind blowing - where else in the world will you get to bike down a Volcano. Not to be missed - would definitely do it again if I went back!!!

Me and my husband did the day trip. It was one of the best activities we did in Maui. It gets cold in the top of the mountain so dress in layers, but I think its worth getting up early and the trip to the top of the mountain. I had an amazing time.
