Fantastic tour with Mountain Riders from the top of the volcano to watch the beautiful sunrise and ended all the way to the beach. I did this same tour 15 years ago and it was worth it again!
Awesome experience, the wait was worth waiting for when the sun started to peek through the clouds and the light came out. The bike downhill was also a great experience. I was hesitating at first but our guide made me comfortable . Really great experience
Such a great experience! the tour guides let us have our own time to watch the sunrise and the bike riding was so fun. Best to do this tour because it is much safer to bike when the company controls traffic and you don't have to worry about getting hit by a car which you would if you just went on your own. Highly recommended. Most fun thing I have ever done in Maui!

This is a must do experience. It literally feel like you are sitting on top of the world. The stars in the sky before the sun starts to come up are breathtaking, and then the colors are amazing. The day starts very early - our pick up was at 2:40am but is worth it. The driver from Mountain Riders Kay was on time and nice as could be. Very important - DRESS WARM! Seriously, it is crazy windy on top of the volcano and very cold! Do not underestimate the temperature! The van follows your bikes down the mountain during the ride, so you can easily take off layers once you get off the top. When you get to the crater, they tell you to stand by the guardrail, but if you walk up the path to the right use your cell phone flashlight!, you can get up even further and find a rock to sit with an unobstructed view due east. And wait for the sun to actually come up! Once sunrise is done, they pile you back in the van and drive you down past the entrance to the park - you can't ride bikes in the park and don't book with anyone who says they will! The bikes used here are heavier than mountain bikes, but they are easy to control. I am the most risk averse person but I loved the ride down - even the multiple curves and switchbacks were doable! The whole ride is just over 26 miles and very little it requires peddling. We stopped once just before cowboy town to get some food - there was only one place open as it was Christmas Day - and they actually stopped us a mile before that because there was a steep uphill, with strong headwinds and coming rain. But after food, in a light rain, we rode the rest of the way all the way to the beach! A really great ride! The folks at Mountain Riders are extremely nice and attentive. They are very concerned for your safety and your comfort the entire way down. If you are uncomfortable with the ride for any reason, you can simply ride in the van. Oh, and they take cool pictures of you and your family on the bikes!
Fantastic - highly recommended. We had so much fun, and the views are amazing!
This tour was absolutely worth waking up in the middle of the night to see the sun rise over the volcano. Biking down the volcano was so exhilarating and exciting, and Elvin was so nice and knowledgeable during the entire experience. Both guides went out of their ways to make sure we were completely happy and comfortable. Highly recommend this tour!
It was a great excursion! the staff was amazing and the bike ride was so much fun!
This was so awesome! The guides Kay and Kevin are great!! We got there early enough for a front row view of the gorgeous sunrise. The ride down on the bikes was exhilarating and so much fun! When we go back, this will be something we will definitely do again!
Had a great time with Kevin and Tom and the rest of the Mountain Bike Riders staff! We saw an amazing sunrise and we were well positioned thanks to the advice of the crew to stake out spots early along the rail otherwise you will have lots of heads in your sunrise pictures. The early pickup 2.15 am was well worth it because we beat the crowds into the park and had a clear view of the sunrise over the clouds and crater.
The ride down the mountain was amazing, very safe and a lot of fun with appropriate equipment brakes on the bikes as well as breaks for food and pictures along the way. We also enjoyed the amount of information, local history and anecdotal stories that each and every member of the crew was willing to share with the group along the way.
Overall and outstanding experience on Maui and one we would recommend to all!
Great experience, great tour guides. They were very good with my mom who went on the trip and she is 76 years old! An experience of a life time. Great job guys!
Most unique way to see the sunrise above the clouds and a volcano. The tour guides were great and took great care with us. We had a safe trip down the volcano going up to 25 mph.
What an amazing experience. This was worth waking up early for. The crew was so nice and funny. The bike ride was really cool. It is an easy ride and the views were breath taking.
I want to thank you so much for a day that will always be remembered. The sunrise was more spectacular than I would have ever imagined and the bike ride was amazing. The tour guide was well informed and added to the full experience.
Great tour guide and sunrise was spectacular. The ride down on the bicycle was 26 miles and exhilarating. We loved the tour.
We had a great time. The sunrise views were breathtaking. Bike ride down was a blast. Request Bobby and JoJo as guides. They are what truly made the excursion memorable.
Great trip- the view was spectacular, the guides informative, and the ride down the mountain a real thrill-
no one tells you this, but they supply jackets and over pants so you don't have to bring your own
Don't worry about the tour starting too early, we arrived right on time to get the best spots for the sunrise of our lives. The crew were great fun, cracking jokes and making us feel at home. Timing was perfect, we were provided with warm clothing since it's rather cold until the sun gets up in full. After the sunrise we drove down a little to get on the bikes. The ride itself is not hard at all! You're riding in the middle of the lane behind one of your tour guides in front, with the tour vehicle, you drove in before, blocking you from behind, so it's not dangerous at all. If there are cars that need to pass your group, you're warned well in advance by the front guide to get to the right side of the road and stop, if needed. Since the ride is 99 downhill, you don't need to be a good biker. As long as you can keep your bike going straight and apply brakes when needed most of the ride, since, again, we're going downhill, it's all vanilla and the views are amazing! You'll be back at your hotel/rental by noon to catch some sleep on the beach to make up for an early wake up call!
Fun fact: the ride even smels great! Eucalyptus, sweet flowers, the good stuff!
Highly recommended. This was a blast, thanks to Roger and Kevin for taking us around. I cannot recommend this enough! Do not hesitate and just go ahead and book.
Scary at first, I was a bit nervous about riding but the guides Kaualani and Isaac were so encouraging and Kualani was super informative about lots of things we saw on the ride that it just made it more fun, interesting, and appealed to my nerdy side. We also got to pet and hold a chameleon which was one of my favorite parts!! 5 stars to this and highly recommend to anyone! Thanks!!
Overall it is a fun morning. We were told to be ready to be picked up by 2:30am. The driver did not arrive until 3:15am. It is very cold on top of Mt. Haleakala. Mountain Riders do supply a jacket but make sure you dress in layers. If you ride a rode bike don't expect the experience to be like your normal ride. It is all downhill and the bikes are set up such that you really cannot peddle if you are going more than 10mph. You do stop in a cool little town for breakfast. The sunrise and the scenery coming down the mountain is beautiful. Overall it is a very enjoyable morning.
Such a great experience! The guides were great, and I felt safe with them. The bikes are a bit shaky and could be upgraded. Overall, the guides made the tour so special.
What a fantastic trip and memory! Mountain Riders provided us a wonderful experience!
Great guides. One of a kind views. Adequate protection from weather/injury. Bikes very worn but functional.
