Great ride. Tour guides gave lots of history of the area and provided a great experience. Not for those wanting to go crazy and jump quads over mountains or anything like that. But for my wife and I, we have our own quads at home, and thought this ride was just fine. Certainly easy to do for the first timer.... More

I don’t normally write reviews unless I am incredibly impressed with a company, and thus, I am taking the time to write about our experience. My parents and I went on the Ride the Rim ATV tour at Waipi’o last Friday the 10th and LOVED it! It is a 3+ hour off-roading tour around the rim of Waipi'o Valley with... More

My wife and I did this with another couple. It was spectacular. Not just the adventure itself, but the information we received during the tour was great. We would highly recommend it. We will be taking our child when we return.

A fantastic tour! I had never been on an ATV before and the guides Handsome, Mana, and Jeremy were great educators. I never felt unsafe and often felt like I just wanted to go faster. I would have to remember to take a moment to enjoy the scenery as we went through the forest because boy was it breathtaking. Another... More

My husband and I rode the two passenger vehicle and had an absolute blast. Beautiful scenery, tons of fun! It had recently rained, we were covered in mud, and loved every minute! DO IT!!

We did this tour on our last visit to the Big Island (5 yrs. ago) and we were very excited to do it again, and we were not disappointed! This tour is extremely well run (on time; professional guides; ATV's in good working order). It is also such a unique experience, you cannot see these views any way else. We... More

Awesome experience! Took the ATV tour to the Waipio valley. It was a lot of fun and the guides were great! They told us about Hawaiian culture and history at each of the view points along the way. They were great story tellers. Be ready to get muddy! We had a blast driving through tons of huge mud puddles. The... More

I wasn't too sure about taking an ATV tour; I hadn't done one before and something about roaring through the beautiful Kukuihaele forests on a noisy 4X4 seemed off to me. However, once out there I totally understand the draw of this type of activity! Our group had a blast navigating the winding and rocky trails above the Waipio Valley... More

One of our highlights of our vacation on Hawaii was our Ride The Rim adventure to the Waipio Valley. Our guides were not only attentive to our needs, but had safety and comfort in mind and provided some great history and cultural information. The report Ride is great fun - the views are indescribable and priceless!! Words hardly do justice... More

We were very excited about this tour. We arrived at 12:45 as directed for the 1-3pm tour. At 1:00pm the rest of the booking group (another 12 people - wedding party) had not yet arrived. At 1:15pm we were still waiting for them...and still sitting at the check-i desk. Finally they took my daughter and I up to the starting... More

Eileen L, Owner at Ride the Rim, responded to this review

This guest is correct. We had great difficulty with a large wedding party, giving us one ETA after another, resulting in us waiting for their arrival, which we usually do not do. Our policy for refunds is predicated on how much of our tour is completed in the event of difficulties. If an entire tour is enjoyed by the guests,... More
