Was picked up in front of resort by bus to go to volcano top / mountain. Dink our tour guide was very respectful and let everyone sleep to start because we were picked up at 250 am. About 30 mi uses out he gave clear instructions and everyone got off vehicle for tour. It was very cold and extremely breezy with winds at about 40 moh and 40 degrees with wind chill. We waited for about 50 minutes for total sunrise that was beautiful with clear sky and noted being above clouds since you are at visitor center just below 10000 feet. Afterwards we went to go have breakfast and Dino gave extensive history information about everything around area and the islands to include answering all questions.

The views were amazing. Although at times it was very very cold because of the wind. No one tells you about the wind! Definitely bring a winter hat, gloves, and a winter jacket. I had a short sleeve shirt on, a long sleeve and a light hoodie. Jeans and tennis shoes. It was NOT enough because of the wind. This was June 2024. Despite the freezing wind the tour was and views were worth it! We stopped at a couple of places down the mountain to take pictures too.

Wayne was fantastic!! Dress warm, take a blanket, I’m Canadian & it was definitely a lot chillier than I thought it was going to be. There is nowhere to buy anything, until after the sun rises. This was an incredible experience, one I would do over again. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. We were lucky enough to lay our eyes on a double dragons eye sunrise. If you’re on the fence, don’t be! Book it! You can sleep on the way up, it’s too dark to see anything anyways!

Sunrise was beautiful. Very cold and windy. Be sure to bring gloves, toboggan, and jacket. Driver was very knowledgeable about history, flora, and fauna. Breakfast was good. I had the eggs and bacon, but wish I had chosen the macadamia nut pancakes- they looked delicious. Only negative was that it was crowded and by the time we arrived on the mountain, so I had trouble finding a good viewing area (I’m short, so second row doesn’t work for me). Gift shop was crowded and I felt rushed-park issue-outside of tour control. Overall would recommend.

Sunrise was beautiful. Bus driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Learned a lot about the history of the area and the flora and fauna. The only negative was that it was crowded by the time we arrived and since I’m short, it was a little hard finding a good viewing area. Also felt a little rushed in the gift shop-not the tours fault. It was small and very crowded. Very cold. Bring warm gear.

Christopher S

Great tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and fun. I would highly recommend it. Well worth getting up to see the sunrise.

Excellent tour with a great guide who had an entertaining sense of humor and a wealth of knowledge. Breakfast at the Maui Plantation was really good.

This tour was not great. The bus arrived too late at the top for any stargazing and then didn't stay long enough to fully enjoy the sunrise. It was barely up in the sky and we had to go. I also didn't have enough time to get a shirt from the souvenir shop. Too late for the full experience, too rushed, too much money for a quick site of the sunrise and a decent breakfast. If you like tours and not moving at your own pace you may like this but as a family we thought it could have been done better for the cost. Give your people more time to do what they came to see. If they are done looking at the sunrise or are cold let them in the van, but for those of us that came with warm clothes, we should have more than 30 minutes to witness the beginning of the day. Honestly we should have been there for 2 hrs total. All told we were there from 5:15-6:10 (Sunrise 5:37am) but at the restaurant from 8:30-9:45. That seems a bit unbalanced. We will not recommend this to a friend. You can register for $1 for a reservation 60 days prior if you are comfortable driving up a mountain. I was extremely disappointed to learn this too late and then didn't have any other option but this tour.

Wish I had taken the advice to layer warmly more seriously. But the view and sunrise was so breathtaking, I took my mind off the cold start to the morning.
