Recent guest feedback:
Thank you for such a fun day. We had the best time on your tour.
Jacob was amazing. So relaxed and very knowledgeable about the island and volcano.
If I was to rate all our adventures, I’d say that our time with Maui Sun Riders was my favorite. The tips Jacob gave us going up the volcano were much appreciated. The doughnuts on a stick were a nice treat. You gotta try the guava filled doughnuts. They were AMAZING. Thanks to the backpack with a lock, we were able to explore the little towns and purchase some local art. I like to support local businesses while traveling.
Thanks again for a great experience.
