Such a great experience! The tour guides were all awesome! So friendly and funny. The drive up to the sunset was really good and the bike down was even better. I totally recommend this experience 🤙

Amazing Adventure
Jimmy_S, Feb 2024
What an absolutely amazing experience!! The sunrise was great! I was a little nervous but our guides were fantastic! They explained everything we needed to know before we began our adventure! It was one of the greatest things we did on our Hawaiian trip! We highly recommend this, you will love it!
Haleakala sunrise bike tour
Matthew_K, Feb 2024
Watching the sunrise over the volcano was spectacular! Riding bikes down the switchbacks on the mountain was exciting and well conducted. The guides gave great lessons and were very safety conscious.
Great experience!
Genevieve_T, Jan 2024
This was a great experience. We were a little disappointed that we couldn’t ride down the whole way but that was not the fault of the company- relatively new laws and contracts with the National Park and the city of Kula limit how far commercial guides can take their customers. We did do the switchbacks twice and that alone was thrilling, hence the five stars. Sunset was beautiful but flipping cold do take the pants and jackets they offer you! You can always ditch them before you ride. I appreciated the guided tour as I’m not a super experienced rider (I’m good enough but don’t do it all the time), and the instruction we got helped ease what anxiety I had. All in all super fun!
On Top of the World

The view was spectacular and the tour guide Eddy was great. our bike ride down with Russell was scary but fun. Beautiful day and view to match.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Aloha, and thank you so much for being a part of our ohana on the Haleakala Sunrise Guided Bike Tour! We're super happy that you had a great time and enjoyed both Eddie and Russell on the tour. We hope to see you again the next time that you're on Maui. Until then, much aloha throughout 2024!

Great trip up the volcano for sunrise
VINCENT_H, Sep 2023
Everything was very well organized at the base. The whole team was very professional and safety conscious but made sure you had a great time. Eddie was the best driver. Always joking and the photo in the clouds was extra special. Drew was a great bike lead. Crazy man going no hands. Highly recommend this tour
A life changing experience for healing brings the best is to come
Paule_B, Jul 2023
The encouragement given by our guides were making it possible for me to go up then biking down the Haleakala mountain. Thank you to Ryan, Larry and Roy I think, the one that has been going up for the last 33 years. A life changing experience. The highlight of my sunrise experience is the Hawaiian chant at the top. Bless the day, forgive and forget/ start a brand new day with lighthearted joy. Mahalo! Aloha- I welcome the breathe of z life.. the breathe of our inner source 😉🩵🫶
Amazing sunrise and bike ride
Wendy_G, Jul 2023
The team at Bike Maui were incredible. They drove us to see the amazing sunrise and regaled us with stories and information about the native plants and history of the island. They carefully orchestrated the group in the bike ride down the mountain. This provided a full day of entertainment and a great introduction to Maui.
Beautiful Sunrise!
Tracy_L, Jun 2023
It was a good time. The sunrise was awesome. The views are beautiful. Rory, Nate, Jeremy and Sebastian were great guides with a lot of knowledge about the history and culture of Hawaii.
Magical Sunrise
Jose_U, Jun 2023
It was amazing sunrise. As the sun appeared the chanting of Aloha from the Hawaiian rangers and tour guides added to the magical environment. Totally recommend!
Well organized and enjoyable experience
Michelle_F, May 2023
Beautiful sunrise and very knowledgeable and pleasant tour guides. I liked that we arrived shortly before sunrise so we weren’t waiting in the freezing cold too long. The bike ride was all downhill, no pedaling at all just braking. You’re going down with a good amount of speed, so even though it’s not physically demanding I would still recommend some comfort on a bike ahead of time. We had a great time and would recommend it!

Truly a fun experience
Victoria_M, Apr 2023
Amazing experience! Absolutely loved seeing the view and the sunrise. The bike down was intense. Only reason I gave this a 4 and not a 5 was I didn’t realize how fast you can go and how those turns can be super intense if you’re not used to it. But, I do like the option of hoping on the bus if you don’t feel comfortable. Definitely wear the layers!! We loved our tour guide Russel and Cory. Russel took some great pictures of us and had great information about Haleakala, he was also great at giving direction for biking. We look forward to seeing his project come to life and maybe hike and camp Haleakala one day.
Haleakala sunrise bike ride disappointing
Noel_J, Apr 2023
We took this same trip about 20 years ago and it was fantastic. Unfortunately, this 2023 version fell far short. There was a raging rain & wind storm when we left at 3am, and it was forecast to continue for the entire day across the entire mountain, yet the trip was not canceled. We knew to expect rain, mist and cold at the top so early in the morning, and that sunrise over the caldera may not be seen, but to continue the trip with such a horrendous forecast for the downhill bike ride spoke of more concern for Bike Maui profits than for their guests' experience. We actually planned our trip so that we could reschedule in case of poor weather (as they guarantee they'll do if possible), but we had no choice because they didn't cancel the trip. We think they should have. 20 years ago the bike ride provided beautiful vistas of agricultural fields & the ocean, through eucalyptus groves & charming mountain towns. BUT!…now bikers are only allowed below the Nat’l Park boundary at 6500’ (used to start at top—10K’). And the town of Kula no longer permits bikers to ride the middle section of Haleakala. So now you get your bike at 6500’, ride for 5 miles, get back on the van to ride thru Kula environs, then ride the bike for the bottom 5 miles which are not at all scenic or interesting. Used to see vast pineapple plantations & sugar cane fields on the island> the last of those closed in 2016 (no longer economical to grow/process & ship from Hawaii) so the fields below Haleakala are not as beautiful. IF you decide to go, be aware you may not see sunrise (always clouds/weather at the top), the bike ride itself is not so great anymore(see above), BUT the Bike Maui personnel WERE excellent and we had an amazing, informative & colorful lesson on the history, people, agriculture, & volcanos of Hawaii from our van driver, Marlon. Our bike ride leader, Russell was experienced and reassuring for newer riders & very kind. Also, if you ride at all, consider the UNguided tour which gives you the van ride up the mountain & you bike down yourself without van support from 6500’. Call & ask if the unguided rides are able to bike through Kula which would be more enjoyable….I think they may be allowed...
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Aloha, we thank you for your review and concern regarding weather. We do allow rescheduling due to these types of factors, but unfortunately it seems that you got incorrect information from somewhere. I'd like to ask you to call us and a manager can assist you. We agree that the new laws are an unfortunate circumstance that could have had better alternatives. We are continuing to work with our products and the routes. It sounds like you participated in our trip before we implemented a few changes that would provide a longer and better experience. I again ask you to contact us directly and we can address your concerns. Thank you for your feedback.
Unforgettable Experience!
Sue_B, Mar 2023
Watching the vibrant colors of the sunrise was an experience that I will never forget!!! In spite of having to get up at the wee hours of the morning and the wind that took our breath away as we were waiting for the sun to rise, it was well worth it! The bike ride down was also an experience that I will never forget. Our guide, Russell, was great! He was so positive and reassuring on our ride, and we learned quite a bit about the Maui environment!
BETH_R, Feb 2023
Was fun seeing the sun rise above the clouds and riding the bike down the volcano. But there was too much driving and not enough biking. Would prefer to have been on the bike the entire time. Did not enjoy being in a van for more of the time and biking a short amount of time.

Nick_P, Dec 2022
Was a great time with a friendly and helpful staff. The staff made the trip. It might seem intimidating but it truly is not bad. I would highly suggest the guided tour as they use a van to block traffic most of the time to allow you to use the entire lane of the road.
Must do
Kelly_R, Dec 2022
Absoutely amazing experience. Between the bus ride and the bike tour I would definitely say it was an amazing way to start off our trip. So informative so much fun.
