Mike was wonderful. A great story teller, but let us nap in the way up. The windbreaker really helped with the cold and the sunrise was out of this world
Amazing views
Christine_M, Mar 2023
Mike, our tour guide was amazing. Great stories, historical facts and getting us set up in the perfect viewing spot. Breakfast at the end was very good too. Even though It was extremely windy which made it VERY cold, I highly recommend. Dress warm!
Haleakala sunrise is unforgettable
Jody_R, Mar 2023
We had a great experience with our tour guide, Michael. He was very helpful and knew a ton about Maui history and ecology. It was a long day but nice not to have to worry about the driving and permits ourselves.
Must Do Maui Activity
Keith_W, Feb 2023
What an amazing trip! Our guide Michael was exceptional - very knowledgeable, friendly, and concerned about our comfort on the ride and on the mountain. This is an absolute must for anyone visiting Maui who want an inclusive National Park Experience. Bring warm clothes and a time lapse camera and a positive attitude - you will have a blast!
Easily the most memorable...

Mike_M, Dec 2022
We were with Billy and absolutely loved him! He is so knowledgeable, thoughtful and funny. It is also obvious that he is a really good human being with values that match mine. I got engaged at the crater that morning and he made it even more special and exciting. Please share with him how much appreciate and love the experience and education he gave us. Thank you
Great Experience
Michelle_R, Dec 2022
Our driver and guide Billy was the Bomb! He was full of a vast amount of knowledge about everything from geology to biology to the history of Maui and Hawaii. True pleasure. The rain gear they give you and vests are fantastic. Unfortunately we didn't get a great sunrise but we stayed until we got some of the experience and could see the crater itself. Definitely worth every Penny. Breakfast after was delicious.
Billy was a great guide.
William_S, Dec 2022
Unfortunately the crater was clouded in so missed the sunrise. Our guide/driver, Billy, was great. His knowledge of flora, fauna, history, culture, geology and more was great and made the tour exceptional.
Mike was a great guide
N_S, Nov 2022
Mike took a lot of photos for us and shared really interesting facts about Maui’s history. We also capped the trip off with a great breakfast.
Awesome trip
IRINA_N, Nov 2022
We had a feeling that we are on a top of earth surrouded by clouds. Bring a hat and gloves with you. The tour guide and driver at the same time Mike was awesome, sharing a lot of history and stories with a group.
One of the best tour on Maui
Massanu_S, Oct 2022
The Tour was awesome! Our Guide Michael was the best! He was easy going and offered us great information about the history of Hawaii and the island of Maui. Michael was funny as well. He picked us up early and understood we all were sleepy so he did not talk much in the beginning of the tour. He let us all sleep until we got to the top. Our group on the tour was smaller which I think made it even better.
Best thing in the island
