Ripped off
Nicholas_R, Mar 2023
Felt like we were ripped off. The ride was reduced by some 9 miles from a year ago when we made this same ride. We paid more on Viator than from what was listed on Maui Sunriders web page. We were not told of this ride change, which was required by the state, but should have been made aware of this change as we would have not made this purchase knowing that the ride had been shorten.

Loved it! The views were amazing! Our guide was extremely informative and helpful! I was a bit nervous seeing the steep climb and I’m not a very experienced biker but it was great!
great customer service!

It was exciting, fast paced! Dane was a great guide and they provided everything to ensure a memorable ride.
Scenic ride
Carol_H, Feb 2023
The incredible view on bike down and fantastic best cappuccino I’ve had at Espresso Mafia stop on way down. Thanks to very informative tour guide on tips on other key cool spots to visit in the area. This is great tour for beginner to leisure bikers. For avid road riders - I would recommend renting an electric pedal assist road bike from the bike shop instead to ride up to 10,000 feet- and back down. That’s my plan next time.
Great ride, great guide
Mark_F, Feb 2023
The whole experience was excellent. From the time we arrived until the time we left the guide, Audrey, was informative and entertaining, and the ride down the volcano was a real thrill.
Great experience
Kathleen_R, Feb 2023
Don’t make the mistake that I did and go to the wrong venue as there are 3 different locations of this bike company. We missed the mountain ride because of my error but the company was most gracious in providing us with an alternative plan. They gave us 2 e-bikes and the use of them for the day. We had a wonderful time navigating the coast line and the bike path. Thank you for the fine customer service
Exhilarating and thrilling.
Kip_C, Jan 2023
A sensational experience racing down a volcano at 25 to 30 miles per hour amidst the beauty of Maui. Maui Sun Riders Bike Company provided an extremely informative trip up the volcano and an exciting journey back down the mountain. If this is on your list of activities in Maui, I highly recommend Maui Sun Riders Bike Company. A first class operation,
Great day excursion
Barbara_D, Jan 2023

Brian_G, Nov 2022
Super friendly staff. They made the experience very comfortable, gave us great tips about things to do and places to eat, helping us to have a much broader experience than I was expecting. I would definitely do this again.
Perfect day

Great views and great ride!

Stopping and shopping
Virginia_D, Oct 2022
Shopping the markets and town during the ride. The ride was an easy downhill except for one spot. Got tired and grateful for the rest spots to shop and eat something. View was incredible once the fog/cloud cleared. The ride up was also entertaining. Our guide Audrey was engaging as she gave us the history of the Haleakala and travel tidbits of Maui and Lanai. Mahalo!!
spectacular !

I thought it was an excellent experience, it was described perfectly. Our tour guide, Aubrey was very informative and educated the riders on ALL the important points from a safety standpoint to making the most of your experience and what yo look for on your ride!
Okay, but not top of my Maui list.
Karl_K, Sep 2022
Beautiful scenery, of course. Bikes were a bit funky if you are used to bike riding. Seats were set low so you could sit on seat and touch grounds with both toes. This meant coasting (99% of tour) with both knees bent. Trip up in bus is about 1hr. Trip down on bike about 1hr (excluding stops). Okay experience, but not tops on my list in Maui.
Amazing experience! Nice...
Katherine_G, Sep 2022
Amazing experience! Nice to go at your own pace. There was much less traffic than I expected and cars are respectful of bikers. Highly recommend
