Aaron was a great host and so knowledgeable. He got us up there nice and early and we got a great spot a bit out of the wind. It was really cold and cannot recommend how important it is to dress right and with all that a blanket is necessary as well. An amazing experience from beginning to end despite getting up at 2:20am. The thousands of stars in the sky and just being there for this new day to begin. Fantastic and something everyone should do at least once. The Hawaiin chant as the sun rose to welcome the new day. You have to do it. Breakfast at the Kula Lodge was nummy.
The tour was amazing and well worth getting up so early. We had the perfect spot and our tour guide knew so many interesting facts.
Great tour. Our guide ( scott ? ) was informative and upbeat the whole time. Would recommend to anyone interested on seeing the sunrise at Haleakala.
Really disappointed! There was ALOT of cloud cover and not the best sunrise but my boyfriend proposed to me on top of Haleakala. Very romantic! Scott our tour guide, was lovely and very professional. He has a passion for what he does. He shared ALOT of knowledge about Maui and Haleakala. Next time we are in Maui we will definetely give this tour another go so a fingers crossed perfect sunrise....
Bring warm clothing, freezing at 4 in the morning 10000ft above sea level.
Guide was excellent, breakfast was fabulous.
Limo bus was luxurious for such an early start, 1.30am pick up.
Bring your camcorder!
This trip was amazing. The bus was very comfortable and our tour guide was great. We arrived at the top of the volcano in plenty of time to see the stars before the sun began to rise. What a sight. Being above the clouds for the sunrise was so beautiful. Well worth enduring the cold for an awe inspiring experience.
The Tour was wonderful!! The ride up to the volcano and sunrise was spectacular!!
The tour guide was very knowledgable and accomodating and a real nice guy!!
So happy we went on the tour. Highly recommend it
This was an amazing experience. The day was great. The sunrise was amazing and the o0ver-all tour experience was superb. This is a 1st class tour and the tour guide was full of detailed information about Hawaii and the island of Maui.
The tour guys on our trip were fantastic. Needed a recorder to capture all of the information that they gave to us. We had 2 vans on our tour. Scot and Aaron were wonderful.
Both tour guides that we had were wonderful. Scot and Aaron had so much information to share with us. Would pay to have them again.
WOW!! What a fun and fantastic as well as informative tour. Even having to be up at 2am to get picked up, our tour guide was very talkative and came across as very proud of Maui. The fun part for me was being told to dress warm as it get a little chilly......oh it is so much more than a little chilly and of course being British and going to a warm climate I had only packed shorts hahahaha so stood up at 10,000ft with shorts and a jumper (my girlfriend at least had long trousers on) I was FREEZING!! But the plus side was I bought both me and my partner a fantastic sovenir from the visitor centre, 2 rain jackets to help keep us warm so we could take some fabulous photos. Now when friends ask us where we got a jacket with Haleakala National Park emblem on the chest we get to retell the story over and over again. And also even though it was a little cloudy we both got some fantastic photos of the sunset and some unforgettable memories. Would happily brave the weather again, UNMISSABLE!!
We really enjoyed this trip and came away with some amazing memories. Our guide Aaron looked after us really well and gave us lots of interesting information about Maui. Seeing the sunrise was a fantastic experience, although wrap up warm it's pretty cold at the summit! We had never done a tour in such a small group but I think it added to our experience as Aaron could pace parts of the tour to suit us and it meant there was more opportunity to ask questions etc. It was an early start for this tour but we felt it was well worth it.
This tour is certainly worth doing and we were lucky that nature was on our side and we were lucky enough to see a beautiful sunrise. It was wonderful to be able to sleep in comfort after the early morning pickup but nothing prepared us for how cold it was up on top of the volcano. When they say it is going to be cold they mean really cold and then you add a freezing wind to the experience. Even though it is probably quite warm when they pick you up from your accommodation (even at 2am), you do need lots of layers, including gloves, jacket, hood/beanie etc.... for when you get to the top Our driver was able to provide a lot of interesting information and breakfast was plentiful and yummy. A wonderful experience and very glad we took the opportunity when visiting Maui.
