A-MA-ZING!!! It was totally what I expected and much more. Beautiful landscapes! Jeremy, our tour guide was excellent. He gave us lots of interesting and funny facts during the tour was aware of us the whole time and gave us precise instructions about the paths and the bike. Lunch was pretty good and transportation at the hotel was on time. I would totally recommend it. Wonderful experience and totally worth it.

The Kualoa Ranch was beautiful! There was an option to do single track riding with the guide which was good fun and a great adrenaline kick.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2011

Wonderful! We had 9 people for our group mountain bike ride, I had my doubts it would be fun , but Jeramy (our fearless guide) made it awsome! You could go off road, or you could stay on the trail. It had been raining so the trails were VERY muddy but that just added to the challenge and the fun! This is a must do for any bike enthusiast!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2010

A "mildly" challenging bike ride to experience the beauty that is Oahu! Our guides were friendly, informative, and knowledgeable. Be prepared to get dirty!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

Although I had never mountain biked before, I still found this tour enjoyable and something that I would do again should I visit again. The valley we rode through was beautiful and we also had the chance to check out some movie locations such as Jurassic Park and Lost. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys being outdoors and loves a challenge.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2012

A great day mountain biking with plenty of commentary. The guide was excellent and looked after all participants interests and levels.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2010

The mountain biking trip catered to a variety of skill levels and Jeremy, I thought, did a great job for the Kuaolua Ranch. I booked through viator.com and found out that the wrong date had been booked by viator which was easily changed by John at the Ranch when I called to confirm. It was a very relaxing day for my wife and I and we got some great pictures and learned trivia on what movies had had footage filmed there along with historical info on the valley.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2012

Might have been a better tour if the provider hadn't sent along one of their employees who obviously wasn't fit enough to do the ride. We ended up waiting 30 minutes for the guide to return her to the base. The guide also spent too much stopping when what we wanted was more riding.
