Interesting culture, beautiful scene and fun downhill

We got exactly what we thought we would get. It was the self guided downhill. The rest is guided and well done. If you are confident on a bicycle, it’s perfect for you. If you are a little apprehensive on a bike, you might consider the guided tour. They use vans to block the traffic from behind and pull over a bunch to let the car traffic pass. If you are confident on a bike, this will drive you kinda crazy. Either way, it’s worth getting up too early on a vacation morning.

Summit Tour is a Must

My husband and I loved the summit tour and are glad we paid for this portion of the tour instead of just doing the bike ride. We really enjoyed going into the park, seeing the view from the top of Mt. Haleakala including the surrounding islands, and seeing the summit and crater. The bike trip down was also a lot of fun. There weren’t as many places to stop along the way as I had expected, but we had a nice lunch and the views were great. Our tour guide for the summit tour was wonderful too.
