Maui Downhill offers a unique experience: ROCKETING down the side of a volcano on a bike! Way fun!!! The bikes and helmets have some pretty good wear but are fully serviceable. Great experience with these guys. If you get motion sick then take a NON-DROWSY...More

The ride down was enjoyable, but there was only one stop for pictures. We’d thought there’d be several places to take in the views. Our weather was good and we had no incidents, although one rider in our group did have a bike where the...More

DO NOT BOOK, if you want a reliable bike tour. After reserving months in advance, they cancelled the bike tour the day before with the explanation “your tour did not come together” which equates to, we don’t have enough customers to come pick you up...More

Great fun. Dress in layers. Guides make all the difference for a great trip. I can't remember their names but bus driver, van driver and bike guide were excellent. Recommend for a great family experience.

They said it would be 8-9 hours door to door. Frustrating inefficiencies, waiting around, logistics issues, incompetence, etc., we had to call an uber (our $55 expense) to get back to our hotel in 9.5 hours. Others had another hour of being shuttled about. Polyad...More
