Waking up 2am to make it to the shop and prep for the ride up the volcano did not sound ideal at first. But once we experienced the amazing sunrise on Haleakala we new it would be something we would never forget. The bike ride down was just as memorable. At one point we stopped, removed our helmets and just listened to the sound of nothing. It was completely silent . . . so peaceful. We stopped by a lodge like restaurant which had the most delicious smoked applewood bacon (and breakfast of course). We still talk about it.

I had a great time. Our tour guide was very nice and super fiendly and all was very well organized.
the view from the vulcano is worth geting up soooooo early - and the ride down the volcano was a good toping. the bikes had been super and in a very good technical condition.

In my opinion, a self-guided tour is absolutely the way to do this trip. Not only is it cheaper, but you are in complete control of how fast you get down how often you stop and what you do. There really is no need to have a guide. There are only three turns you need to make the whole trip down, and they're all pointed out to you on the trip up in the van.

Our driver, Remy, was great fun and wholly entertaining at 3am! Sadly we didn't see the sunrise as the clouds rolled in at the wrong time. But we did get to see some of the wonderful colours as it started.

I had higher expectations in terms of the trip in general as someone had recommended doing this. The trip down isn't particularly spectacular but there are some good views. I guess I just expected more. Still worth doing in my opinion, but do it at your own pace, not in a group. And I totally recommend Maui Sunriders

We were a bunch of cranky tourists at 3am & the people at Maui Sunriders were happy, positive & smiling. Informative, safety conscious & considerate. They assumed we were able to pick up on the basics & didn't need our hands held - I certainly appreciated that! Pointed out sights & cool trivia on the bus ride up. Pointed out good places to stop for a bite or a pic. I would definitely do this ride with them again!

Had a great tour guide, Remy, who drove us, and our bikes, up to the top of Haleakala. The views from up there were spectacular, and the ride up was fun-- Remy joked and quipped the entire way up and shared funny stories of his young family. The ride down was a blast-- the equipment was well maintained and safe and we were able to stop in various towns on the way down to walk around and explore. It was an overall great experience.
