We enjoyed our morning ride. The weather was perfect, the views were gorgeous, the horses were cooperative for the most part and the staff was very friendly. This is a fun way to see a less populated area of Maui. We actually ran the horses in two areas...a little frightening at times as we ran around the corners near the... More

The horseback riding was absolutely fantastic. The cliffside views along switchback trails were excellent and plenty of time was provided for photos at two different locations. Instructions beforehand were just enough for beginners before setting off on the trail. Recommended for sure.

This was a fun and memorable ride for my wife and my two granddaughters.In the words of our granddaughters, this ride was "epic". The views from the trail were incredibly breathtaking and awe inspiring. I have been on many trail rides and this is now one of my top rides for the view. The girls were paired with some very...

This was such an amazing ride with gorgeous views! The tour guides were friendly and professional and I even had a chance to try passion fruit off the tree. The guides give you opportunities to have your families picture taken together. Great and memorable experience with the family.

Our trip to the Mendes Ranch was one of my favorite parts of my recent trip to Maui. We did the two hour trail ride with BBQ lunch and it was great! First off, the views were spectacular! The ranch is nestled up in the mountains on the west side of Maui so you spent the entire time looking down... More

Loved the experience, breathtaking views, friendly cowboys and Ranch hands. My 8 year olds horse was a bit crotchety and the cowboys were so kind to help keep it going and keep her from being frustrated. They provided drinks, clean bathrooms, helmets, and were great for every level of rider. They also took pictures with our own cameras or phones... More

I booked a tour with Mendes Ranch for my husband and I after reading all the great reviews and we were not disappointed! My husband had zero horse riding experience and I had minimal but the guides are professional and patient and put you at ease. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and encouraged to make ourselves comfortable and... More

I just want to say that I have had horses my whole life and this was the best guided horseback ride I have ever had. Normally the riders are not aloud to go any faster then a walk but here they give people the option to canter your horse at two spots on the ride. The horses were great and... More

This was a great way to spend a morning riding horses through lush tropical trails with spectacular views of cliffs and ocean. Destiny our ride leader was great, friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were well-trained and very safe. They made an effort to match the rider's experience level to the horse. Most of the trails were either up or downhill,... More

As a special treat on our honeymoon, we arranged for a private afternoon ride at Mendes Ranch. I am not experience on horseback but they gave me a slow and steady old horse and I felt quite comfortable. Our guide Eric was quite good, giving us history of the property, showing us incredible views and even getting us up to... More
