Excellent trip. I thought we would be clouded in but by the time we got to the summit, we were actually over the clouds and a beautiful sunset ensued. Well worth it

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

Trip up an down the mountain took lots of time. I would have enjoyed getting to the top a little earlier to explore a little more before the sunset. The sunset was amazing. No complaints with that.

The trip to the top of Mt Haleakala at sunset was awesome. The top of Mt Haleakala was above the clouds which made sun set spectacular. Do not forget to take warm clothes as it is VERY cold at sunset.


4 star rating: Recommended November 2012

Trip up the mountain and back down was long, but worth it for the view and the sunset. Need to bring something warm to wear as the temperature was quite chilly. Tour guide was knowledgable, but not too chatty as some of the others were.


4 star rating: Recommended September 2012

A once in a lifetime experience and staff was very knowledgeable.
