Amazing trip, our guide was Joe who lead an incredible tour. Super knowledgeable, supportive, and informative. I’d definitely come back for a trip with him and Dean (driver)
Great views, fun biking, and humorous commentary

This memorable bike ride was wonderful with incredible views of the entire island, including giant waves breaking on the north shore. It was a fast and fun cruise down the mountain, made even better by guide Joe's informative and humorous commentary.
Great Ride and Service!!

Had a great time in Maui and a great time on our ride with Mountain Riders. Our guide Manny was interesting and safety conscious!! My kids, wife and I had a great time and really appreciate the personal service!!
Great experience for a thrilling, but safe, bike excursion down Haleakalā!
Holly L, 03-01-2023
This was an awesome experience! With Manny as our guide and Shane as our driver, we were guided up Haleakalā with lots of laughs and stories. Then we were guided safely down in a thrilling, but no pressure, coast/ride back to where we started the day. There is rarely a need to pedal, but you should still be in good condition and able to ride a bike.

On the way down, we stopped for about 45 minutes in the quaint town of Makawao in upcountry. We found a cute coffee shop called Vida and then noshed on a two-pound chocolate-peppermint-whiskey cookie from the Maui Cookie Lady. (You really gotta try these cookies!)

The bikes were heavy road bikes (rather than mountain/trail bikes), which made for a safe and smooth ride. Full helmets (and any other gear you needed or wanted) were provided. We made several slows and quick stops on the way down. Don’t miss out on this amazing experience while you’re in Maui!

I expexted to start at the top and to end up at sea level….was not the case.

Tour guide Joe was terrific.
Tip request was unfortunate
iluv2trlv, 01-02-2023
We never watched got to watch ‘the Maui bike industry’s only safety video’ and we never had to provide proof of insurance. We didn’t have a ‘quick stop’ in Makawao - it was a 50 minute stop so the tour guide could have his lunch. Both of these points were stated on their website.

The guide talk about the volcano and rare plants and animals native to Hawaiian Islands was a bit skimpy. He did tell us about all the ‘wild’ chickens and how dangerous they are as they are let loose from illegal cock fighting. I’m not sure they are indigenous to Hawaii. Breathtaking views? We were told to keep our eyes on the road looking straight ahead. If we turned our heads to look at the views we might crash!

The bikes were very road worthy with great brakes and comfortable seats. And overall the bike ride portion was enjoyable.

We purchased our tour from the cruise ship and paid $189.95, not a cheap tour. The same excursion could have been purchased directly from the company for $109 online. Number 11 on their rule sheet had tipping suggestion of 15 - 20%. And we were told by our guide that they depend on their tips and that they ‘know what we all paid, and so we should be tipping $30 each’!!! We didn’t have $60 US cash on us and we couldn’t use our credit card for the tip, but we did have $20 cash and were planning to tip them this, but I was so offended by his assertion that we were expected to tip so they got nothing! Besides, I’m not sure it was worth $219.95 (with tip).
