The sunrise isn't until after 6 and it isn't that far of a drive. Figure out a different system guys, I mean cmon...... More

There are several tour companies from which to choose. I did a lot of research and we've done this tour twice now. I can say that not every tour operator is the same. I believe Cruiser Phil's Volcano Riders is your best option. And I wouldn't want to do this trip alone. Having a guide in front of you and... More

If you want to be astonished by gorgeous views, wonderful sunrise, excellent bike ride and great tales about Maui, its people, its vegetation and its animals you have to book Cruiser Phil's Volcano Riders. My wife and I did almost everything that you can do in Maui and in our opinion (this may vary from person to person depending what... More

A gorgeous, once-in-a-lifetime sunrise over Haleakala? Check. A great, scenic bike ride down an active (but extremely unlikely to erupt, don't worry) volcano afterwards? Check. Going on this guided tour was definitely a highlight of my trip to Maui. If it weren't for the warmth of the van and of the outerwear gear provided, waiting for the sunrise in the... More

We were picked up at our hotel at 3am by Drew. We then went to the base camp. Had breakfast snacks, they gave us warm clothes--windsuits including pants and jacket, warm coat and gloves. (FYI since February, you need to apply for a permit 6 weeks in advance if going solo without a tour such as Cruiser Phil's). We were... More

If you are looking for a highly professional and well organized, safety oriented company, look no further. Our guides Preston and Nat were very accommodating and knowledgeable, sharing their experiences and passion for the beautiful land of Maui. Sunrise over the volcano was truly spectacular, followed by leasurely yet challenging 28 mile ride down the hill, with every turn unveiling... More

2:00 am is very early to get up and the top of the volcano is very cold (32 F). Putting that aside the sunrise was well worth it. A quick warm up in the van and then on the bikes. Ride down was worth the money. The family felt safe the whole time and the guides were very entertaining. Would... More

My husband and I went to Maui for our 40th wedding anniversary and decided we would do things from our "bucket list", this was one of his, mine was to see the "Sunrise" from the top of Haleakala. Well one out of two ain't bad. The weather did not cooperate for the "Sunrise" but it did for the bike ride.... More
