The tour started out alright going up to Haleakala for the sunrise which was gorgeous. The staff were attentive. The ride down the mountain was disappointing for me, it lasted perhaps one hour. For anyone who is comfortable on a bike the pace was glacial not due to the guide but more due to the way the riders were organised.... More

First the positives. The driver (Brad) and guide (Willy) took pretty good care of us. We were fitted out with rain pants and wind breaks and helmets at the shop. There were hot drinks (coffee and hot chocolate) and pastries while we waited. There was a very good and thorough briefing prior to getting on the bikes. They opted not... More

Excellent early morning excursion to the top of Mount Haleakala for sunrise followed by a guided tour 17-mile bike ride down the mountain and breakfast stop. Guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Maui Downhill the BEST !!

I have been on tours with Maui Downhill before. In the past I enjoyed the view as we rode down Haleakala at a slow pace. I talked up this tour and convinced eight other people to book the Sunrise Tour, October 15, 2016. This ride was terrifying. We were on and off the bikes in less than two hours. We... More

The overall experience of this activity was amazingly fun! This is the perfect experience for the novice bike rider. Maui downhill is a guided tour which means they have everything pretty much covered. (Shout out to Charleston <-- our amazing guide) At the Store: they offered a resort pickup at no extra charge, danishes & coffee at the office until... More

The experience with the Maui Downhill crew was incredible. First of all, Doug, our first guide, was extremely pleasant and friendly and engaging. He made sure that each of us on the bus got acquainted & not in a cheesy way. He got us to the viewpoint early enough to beat the crowds and ensure a perfect spot for viewing.... More

My boyfriend and I met the group for a 2:15am pickup. They took us to the shop for a quick cup of coffee, a danish, and fitting of the bicycle helmets. I had read reviews and knew that it may be cold. So while others came in shorts and tank tops, we had on long pants, long sleeves, pullovers, and... More

I did this ride about 10 years ago, and although some minor changes have occurred the ride and staff are still amazing. My wife and I did the sunrise ride, we met the staff at the pier at 3am and got situated with gear then began the 1 ride up the mountain. Once up top it was between 15-30 degrees... More

Great experience! We took the day trip this time instead of the sunrise and enjoyed it even more. You can learn and see a lot more on your trip up! The guides were informative, fun, professional, and we felt very safe and well taken care of in their hands. The biking down is exhilarating, the views are stunning. Highly recommend!

Aloha, We are glad you enjoyed your time with us, both times! Yes, the sunrise is something everyone wants to do and everyone should do, at least once. However, Maui Downhill offers other tours that everyone will enjoy. A hui hou (Until we meet again)! More
