We didnt get to see the sun but still had a great experience thanks to our wonderful tour guide Nettie! She is what the hawaiian spirit is all about!
The sunrise tour was amazing. Our tour guide Rory was very knowledgeable and funny. It was very cold up on the volcano, so make sure to bring a hooded sweater/jacket and wear socks! I did not wear any socks and that was a mistake... We were lucky that we got the first sunny day in this week, so we were able to see the stars and the actual sunrise! I've never seen that many stars so close to us, it was amazing! Rory also makes sure we get there early enough to get a good view.
Wonderful a true life event! however when the alarm went off at 2am I felt otherwise :! the driver and bus was packed but we had a good time bring warm clothes and gloves and a dependable camera as its cold!!!
I wish the food and coffee was better i didnt eat anything I should have brought my starbucks VIA. I was staying at the Montage so I was a little spoiled but it was a great Trip I highly recommend!
I love this tour. Our tour guide Glenn made our trip very enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious.The only recommendation is to wear a big jacket since it is cold, really cold!!!
Rory was a great tour guide, terrific driver and gave us a lot of cultural and historical information on our way to a spectacular sunrise
The Tour guide for got his name was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was very attentive to all of us.
This was an awesome tour. A glorious Sunrise that was breath taking.
The best part of course was the sun rising...a beautiful sight!! The volcano was really cool looking! We had a knowlegdable and great driver. He took the stress of driving to Haleakala from us. Do take a coat and hat to protect your ears-very cold and windy. Worth the price!
Amazing and fun tour guide - spectacular sunset and experience - good breakfast location. Overall a very good tour.
This trip was worth it. Nattie, our driver had great energy and gave a fantastic tour! She helped us prepare for the trip the best that she could. She made sure enjoyed the tour and pointed us out the best place to stand during the sunrise. We learned a lot about the culture and history of Maui through the tour. We learned so much more than we expected.
Loved the sunrise tour. Our guide Nettie was very informative and witty as well. She kept us occupied with her stories and took great pictures of all the guests! I definitely recommend it!
An excellent way to see the sunrise! Our driver, Nettie, was so excited and energetic keeping us entertained the whole time we were with her. We arrived early enough to get a prime viewing location and the sunrise was spectacular! After the sunrise we proceeded to the observatory and let the masses descend. We had a leisurely ride down the mountain after most of the traffic was gone, stopping along the way where possible. Finishing the tour off with a hot breakfast was a nice touch.
Peaches was our guide for the day, she did an outstanding job! Very informative. If you get a little queasy you might consider something for motion sickness, the road is winding. The breakfast was delicious, everyone at our table concurred. Thanks for a great morning.
This tour is worthwhile alone to experience a new creation moment. Go prepared to stand for about an hour and a half to observe the crystalline night sky and the diamonds glittering there, and the creeping daylight that finally exposes shadows and crevices, and finally, the explosion of our star sun over the horizon! As the NPS guide indicated, each new day is unique so make it your own. Our driver, Glen, seemed knowledgeable, but perhaps not as engaging as I'd enjoy, but it's a good trip. Breakfast at the golf clubhouse was plentiful and good. It's cold so go prepared...some do,some don't. The firing of the cane fields was unique. The number of bicycle riders descending the mountain is amazing.
It was a once in a lifetime experience that was magical to watch as the sun rose above the white fluffy clouds!
Rory our tour guide was the best! He brought such great energy to the trip which was much needed since the tour starts at 2am. He was also very knowledgeable about the history of Haleakala and Hawaii, he made everyone laugh and feel comfortable and safe throughout the tour. He simply made this tour awesome. Coffee, pastries and breakfast on this tour was another plus!
The Sunrise Tour was the highlight of our vacation. It was well organized with bathroom and breakfast breaks. The tour guide, Glenn, was a wealth of knowledge. We enjoyed it tremendously! The sunrise was lovely!
Out guide, Glen, was knowledgable and entertaining. The bus was comfortable and our breakfast delicious but nothing can compare to the breathtaking views Mother Nature and Haleakala had in store for us. Mahalo.
This tour really is spectacular just like the title intimates. It was cold up there, not as cold as it could have been but still quite cold so anyone doing this tour should definitely dress warmly, bring gloves, wear layers, carry a blanket, whatever you need. Once warm just stand and wait for the most breathtaking views you will see and experience. Totally worth it, I highly recommend!
Overall highlight of our trip to Maui....despite getting up at 130am to be picked up at 2am. Rory our driver was excellent, he provided a great history of other islands no he way back as well as getting us to the top in enough time to have a prime spot for viewing. While it is a good chunk of time to devote and you have to get up early we were back by 11am with enough time to lounge by the pool and take a much needed nap! Glad we did it and we'll worth it, but no need to do it again on our next trip back whenever that might be!
The sunrise was indescribably amazing! The tour was great and especially the tour guide!
Note: Dress very warmly, it is freezing up there!! Bundle if you can.
This was pretty cool. We weren't thrilled about being picked up so early at our hotel but it takes awhile to get up to the top of the crater so it was best to have someone else do the driving in the dark in unfamiliar territory. and it was worth it!
Beautiful sunrise above the clouds! Do it!
What a beautiful morning in Hawaii! Rory was an awesome tour guide and has a wealth of knowledge. He ensured we were there early to be standing right by the guard rail. He kept us well informed of what to expect minute by minute. Remember to dress warm and even bring the blanket off your hotel bed my concierge even recommended it! Leave the driving to them well worth it!
