The guides were great. The views were nice ocean views and a few optional short canters up hills. If you want to get a taste of horseback riding in a beautiful setting, go for it. If you are an experienced rider, you may want to go to other equally or more wonderful areas on the island to get your views.

The scenery through out the ride is surely breath taking! The guides are very nice and experienced as well. We also loved the complementary Hawaiian drinks at the waiting area. The only complaint I have for this place is the hygiene of the helmets. I did not expect them to be clean, but none of the helmets is even marginally... More

My daughter and I enjoy trail rides when traveling and this was one of the best ever for us. The scenery was stunning and the ride was appropriate for all levels of riders. Four attentive guides led by Destiny rode with us and we had a really fun gallop as part of the ride. This activity was a real highlight... More

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
