Smooth pick up. Right on time. Got to the top an hour before sunrise. Beautiful night sky with stars and clear view of Venus. Sunrise was beautiful. Breakfast was fine - nothing spectacular but that’s not the reason for the trip anyway. Caroline was a great driver and shared tons of info. She was also very kind and accommodating to an elderly couple on our tour - ensuring they safely got on and off bus etc. And there were several bathroom stops and they were real bathrooms - on the way up and back and at the top, which is always nice. Cost seems high but it’s the going rate for this kind of tour and we were definitely all glad we did it and didn’t attempt to drive up those winding roads on our own during the darkness.

It was super windy the morning we went up, and I was glad I had pre-ordered five jackets for all five of my family members (my dad and brother originally didn't think they would need an extra jacket). As offensive as the wind was, the experience was overall pretty magical. The roads are designed in such a way that very few people got motion sickness (our guide provided ginger chews to everyone just in case still), the conditions were just right and we were able to see the full sunrise (they reportedly couldn't see a thing just the day before), and the breakfast afterwards was in a quaint setting. Great experience overall!

Hands down a must, if you’re coming to Maui. Our tour guide Glenn (with 2 N’s) is hands down one of the best tour guides to have on this island.. I would even attempt to book him or get in his van if you can. He made the experience that much better. Knowledgable and passionate about Maui and left with an education on the island I had NEVER thought I’d imagine. AMAZING. Thank you!

Loved our trip from beginning to end! We were picked up promptly at the time we were told, the guide was really friendly and knowledgeable, the van was comfortable, we were very thankful for the warm coats! Glenn told us the perfect place to stand to watch the sunrise. We enjoyed the breakfast and the views were spectacular! A+++

Trevor was a great guide! Full of knowledge and felt safe and comfortable throughout the entire tour. This is a “must see” experience.
