We had a great ride down the mountain with Cruiser Phil's. Our guide Trevor did a really good job and was a lot of fun. Very safe ride with very little pedaling. Great scenery. Lots of stops.

Tour was awful! Might as well utube it and save your money. Bikes were 100 years old! Try another bike company. This one is terrible!!!

This guest did not go on the tour. They called in sick,the night before. Because she is not happy about our refund policy, she has decided to play this hand. Mahalo for visiting Maui!

Granted, the weather did not cooperate atop Haleakala but our spirits were not dampened by the rain the morning we were there. The ride down the mountain was on a 55 lb bike with drum brakes. The weight of the bike and the drum brakes...More
