November 26th isn't just a ordinary Saturday. In fact it was my mom's birthday. My mom was surprised with a gift of going on a horseback riding adventure with her family and two amazing guides and one cute little girl, Jerry and Andy and little Jordan. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day of going up the green... More

Thank you Jerry, Andy and Jordyn for an amazing time on my birthday. It was a special birthday gift to be able to come back and experience horseback riding with my family on your ranch. My horse, Akamai was a beautiful and sweet horse. It brought back so many wonderful memories when my husband and I first went horseback riding... More

Really down to earth people, I couldn't have asked for better guides, Jerry and Andy and her cute little daughter Jordan. The horses are great and the view was beautiful, couldn't beat the clear skies and the whole view of the island. If you want a horseback riding adventure, Thompson Ranch is the one you want.

Years ago, in the 80's, my wife and I did the Thompson Ranch horseback tour with Jerry. We were just married and decided to experience horseback riding for the first time. We always remembered that ride and would reminisce about it often. 30 years later, our two sons wanted to take Mom horseback riding, again, for her birthday. I immediately... More

My husband and I had such a great time riding with the family. We first arrived (without any problem going up the driveway... unsure what that one reviewer was speaking of). We were first greeted by the friendly puppies and almost just stayed there petting them!! We were originally booked for 4 and had to cancel 2 from our party... More

I never write reviews and don't believe half of them, but this was an experience that you HAVE to do if you are in Maui! This is not a cruise ship crappy excursion that packs em in and takes your money. This is a real up the mountain horseback ride. The views are unreal, the horses are tame, the owners... More

The most beautiful experience I had on Maui, maybe even in my life! The land, horses, dogs, pig, goats, and people are beautiful! Andie, the daughter of the owner of Thompson Ranch was the one to take us on the tour where we traversed the side of the Haleakala mountain to about 5000 feet on their personal land. We rode...

The most genuine, non-touristy thing on Maui that you could ever do (read tips in last section). Family run by the Thompsons, they've been doing this for a couple of generations now. Firstly, the Thompsons run a working ranch, raising cattle and goats along with chickens and turkeys. Jerry, the owner has a story behind everything and it's great just... More

Commander,Wrangler, Akamai and Davey took us on a tour of part of the 1400 acre Thompson Ranch located on the southwestern(?) slopes of Haleakala at about 4000 ft. It was a cool summer day alternating between sunny and cloudy. From the main house you could see into the Maui valley below and the ocean beyond. Jerry Thompson, the owner, was... More
