Getting up early is horrible. But the reward is worth it. Listen to this warning wear heavy clothes. A heavy hoodie and sweat pants are a mandatory in the winter months. You get a back pack if you need to layer down but trust me you stand up there waiting for the sun to rise for 35 mins at least and its freezing. But after seeing the sunrise witch is amazing its all worth the cold.

We had Remy as a tour guide he was very informative and made the ride up very interesting.

The ride down was awesome. Plenty of places to take pictures and barely any pedaling. Its a blast. The views can't be beat. Again you def don't be disappointed just dress warm to begin with easier to layer down.

Natalie was the best. As our guide she was very friendly, helpful and really took the time to make sure we were safe! She also was very informative and educated us about the island and the Hawaiian culture. She was so impressive in how she loaded and took the bikes down. Come to find out she is the only female bike tour guide that works the sunrise volcano ride. Natalie you are all around WAY COOL!

For you avid bike riders: This company is the way to go! My husband and I are avid riders, mountain and road, so we were so thankful that Maui Sunriders is a self-guided tour. Matt and I were the first ones on the bikes and the last ones to return them so we could really enjoy the stops along the way. We were horrified when we passed the guided tours! If you know how to ride a bike or ride every day, save your money and skip the guided tours. You will not get lost going on your own and those other companies are not safe. We saw 2 different guided tours stop their groups for a break on the blind corners of turns. Plus you are stuck going as fast as the slowest rider....Not FUN!.

I highly recommend Maui Sunriders! You won't regret it!

Derek and Natalie were very friendly and accommodating. Derek was our guide for the trip up the mountain and was very entertaining. He was also very knowledgable about the history of the island to include the mountain itself. As mentioned in some of the other reviews, bring a jacket because it does get pretty cold at 10K feet especially right before sunrise! The sunrise itself was incredible, pictures do not do it justice! After the sunrise we got dropped off at 6500 feet and Derek made sure everyone knew how to get back to Paia and how to get in contact with him, Natalie or the store if we needed anything. The ride back to town was incredible. Well worth getting up at )o dark thirty!

Nine 50 somethings had a brilliant day out today. Derek couldn't have been more helpful sorting us out and Natalie was the perfect guide. We enjoyed the summit tour and then the ride down from the park gates to Paia was fantastic. Thank you so much. Highly recommended.

Do this trip the first day there - because you meet so early in the morning - but our guide kept us entertained but let us nap half way up the mountain (but that wasnt easy with the curvy roads).
All equipment is provided, and the newest bikes I saw around - except a good sweater, which you'll NEED. After setting off on the self-guided tour (BEST way to go ... no waiting for an entire group of 15!), stop at the Lavender Inn for coffee and breakfast.

Highly recommended!!!
