Covering 33,000 acres of rocky, volcanic wilderness, the park offers dramatic views.

Stop for lunch (own expense) in historic Makawao town to refuel before your afternoon adventure. Next head to Iao Valley State Park where Iao Needle rises 1,200 feet (366 meters) from the valley floor. Walk along a short trail to an overlook. Nearby, visit Kaahumanu Church, named after one of Hawaii's monarchs, Queen Kaahumanu. Finally, journey through the city of Wailuku, county seat of Maui and home to historic buildings, the details of which your guide explains before you continue on past flower farms, pineapple fields, and sugar cane plantations.

We wanted to go up the volcano and this was the way to do it. The driver was great, she stopped periodically going up the volcano which allowed us to get more used to the altitude. There were stops at the park visitor center and at the top. The landscape up there is amazing,

Once in a lifetime experience, bike down the volcano totally worth every second. We used a guided tour to bike down and glad we did, we felt safe at all times with the guides. The panoramic views on the stop points are incredible and the stop at the quaint little town of Pai'a

This tour is operated by Polynesian Adventure Tours. This tour was very unorganized and disappointing. Overall we felt scammed. Viator advertises this tour as 9 hours and that is incorrect it was 6 hours. There were only two thirty minute stops and an hour and a half for lunch

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We apologize that you felt rushed and that the tour didn't meet your expectations. Our tour brings guests to the Haleakala Visitor Center for views from 9,740 feet elevation - it's a wonderful sight to behold. The summit at 10,023 feet elevation is restricted to vehicles under a certain weight restriction mandated by the National Park. We hope you enjoyed your trip to Maui and again thank you for taking the time to post your comments.

The scenery is beautiful on this tour. Unfortunately, Haleakala was completely obscured by cloud cover, so that was disappointing--be prepared for this possibility. You spend a lot of time on the tour bus -- not much time to walk around the attractions -- and there is either a
