The ride was very exciting and beautiful. Our instructor Remy was very knowledgeable and entertaining, giving us both safety instructions and fun tips. The equipment was in great working order and gave us a very enjoyable and secure trip. I would do this trip again and highly recommend doing this to everyone who has ridden a bike without training wheels.

A fun-filled bike ride down the volcano and through small towns
Seth_F, Dec 2023
So much fun for those who can ride a bicycle. The tour no longer starts at the summit though. Hawaii regulators made this change in January 2023.
Sick views & nice people!
Emily_H, Dec 2023
Dane was a great tour guide! Views were great! Town we went through was cute! Great food when we got back to the town the shop is in. Fun adventous day!
Fun fun fun

Johnny was the best tour guide. The sites were amazing and fun to be on bike. The honey cream latte at coffee shop was BEST I have ever had
Amazing Time
Patricia_P, Nov 2023
Our tour guide, Remy is the best! Thank you for a great experience. We will definitely be back soon.
Fun For All
Gregory_E, Nov 2023
Staff was informative and helpful. We chose this excursion as you can go at your own pace without being part of the group. Was disappointed that the Kula portion was cut out and we had to be picked up and dropped off once again.
Exhilarating Ride Down Hairpin Curves
Amy_W, Oct 2023
Speeding down the tight curves of Haleakala was fun! Time and money well spent, seeing the changing geography and learning the history of the area on the drive up. It was disappointing that we had to shuttle through Kula, but out of the operator’s control due to local legislation. The stop in Makawao was fun and delicious, with the added bonus of stopping at the Maui Cookie Lady Store!
Family Fun
Robin_G, Oct 2023
A great family activity that combines adventure with an appreciation for the abundance of natural beauty.
Good but not what was advertized
Everest_W, Aug 2023
This was a good overall experience. There are a couple notes to keep in mind. About 1/2 the ride was not available due to not being allowed. This was a major disappointment. Not a problem that is controllable by the Maui Sunriders but it should have been advised on the site. Not sure if this is a seasonal thing or what.
You Gotta Do This!
Mark_L, Aug 2023
Johnny was our tour guide and was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We took the self guided tour and were extremely pleased. It wasn’t difficult at all and Johnny gave us some very great tips. My family of four enjoy this extremely, and I would highly recommend it. The bikes were in excellent condition and the road was very easy to navigate. Once again, I highly recommend this tour and I highly recommend this company.
Awesome experience and will definitely do this again.
Fred_K, Jul 2023
We had a blast driving down the mountain and enjoyed the amazing views of beautiful mountains and ocean and horse ranches. Our tour guide Rocco was born and raised in the town of Makawao which is a town at the bottom of Hakeakala. Rocco was very knowledgeable about history and geography of the area and gave us great recommendations on places to eat. He went above and beyond and took very good care of us. We definitely recommend Sun Rider bike tour and especially recommend our tour guide Rocco.
A BLAST!!!! Just do it!!
Paul_B, Jul 2023
Warning: this is for seasoned bikers (not beginners or people that havent ridden a bike for awhile) The ride was too steep and extreme an incline for my wife, so unfortunately she couldn't join me and she had to ride down in the van :( ... but I absolutely loved it and had a blast! Apparently I was the fastest one lol. I highly recommend this to bikers. Very little peddling and all brakes. Nice bikes and supplied gear. The guide is an awesome and funny guy (leave him a big tip!) The only suggestions I have is wished they provided big brightly colored signs to make the stop and shop more visible. I was the only one that flew by the stop and had trouble finding the place (it's tucked away from the street) and note that parking is NOT free (you must pay).

Being together as a family, seeing the beauty of Hawaii and feeling safe at the same time. Thank you to everyone involved!
Professional the entire trip
Natasha_F, Jul 2023
Service was great! Andre was professional and he really went out of his way to be sure everyone was prepared and comfortable. Good quality bikes were given to everyone. They also loaned you a small backpack with a lock to explore and a windbreaker if desired. Both were included. The only downside was that laws have changed in Maui so that you can’t bike down from the summit but we did go to 6,500ft. Not bad for a fun day in Maui!

The ride down the mountain was amazing, with such beautiful areas. The guide was very helpful with giving information about the area we were riding
Bike for fun!

Cruising down the mountain for minutes, taking it all in! Stopped in the little town and bought some art and had Shoyu chicken at Ohana Island Grillz (sp?).
A great ride.
