This was without doubt 1 of our favourite trips. Stunning views and a great guide. Bring a coat as it was windy at the top.

Our tour guide was exceptional, careful and very informative. The views are amazing, but be aware that the weather is changeable and there is a risk of low clouds, which means no views. The Silversword plant was an eye opening to me because it is a rare pant. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Tour guide is courteous and friendly. Pickup time and overall tour are excellent. Lunch was very good, thoroughly enjoyed it. Unfortunately could not see the crater because it was very cloudy up the mountain. Iao Valley is magnificent.

Very good trip, but be aware that you are climbing to 10,000 feet all in one go. Altitude sickness suffers beware! The views of the 'moonscape' are something else.

Great trip with a very helpful driver. The views and the experience at the 3000 metre level were amazing. Highly recommended.

Slightly stressful start as the initial pickup bus transfers you to a tour bus that can be packed. The views from the top of the Volcano are fantastic and there's also a stop at the national park entrance (where all the American's aboard seemed to be stamping some sort of USA park visits passport). 20 minutes at this entrance was sufficient time, however we only spent 10 minutes at the mountain summit. This was very disappointing as there was plenty to see and there are effectively three sides (three viewing points) to see it from. We then had 45 minutes at the crater viewing station, but again this wasn't enough as it takes 30 minutes just to climb up and down to the main viewing point. This made the restaurant meal in one of the villages at the bottom of the mountain very disappointing as it was very expensive, tips were automatically charged on the bill, and we spent longer eating than we spent at all three viewing stops combined. I paid to see the volcano, not to sit in a pay for yourself restaurant. After lunch we visited the innards of the smaller volcano on the other side of the island. This is interesting but nothing special as you don't visit any high up vantage points. The main volcano is certainly worth visiting, and doing it on this tour is fairly hassle free, but there was nothing like enough time at the volcano's peak and were I to return to the island I may prefer to hire a car and make my own way to the summit so that I can spend several hours there.

The weather was terrible so we couldn't really enjoy the views.Not the driver's fault. I was disappointed but left Maui so I couldn't go again.
