Potential Flash Flood Warnings didn't stop us. The ATV crew remained calmed and collected. Gave us a ride none of us would forget with the views and the history. Main guide was hired 4 years ago to authenticate the surrounding valley and give the Hawaiian culture respect in a commercialized adventure. Highly Recommend to support the local company livelihood along... More

Thank you for your upbeat review. Just a touch of clarification is necessary. This company is plugged into NOAA, Civil Defense, RadarScope, mauka scouters, coastal observers, as well as direct visuals on the mountain that ALL go into our decision to proceed on tour. We modify all water related activities when the watches and warnings are issued for the area,... More

This was absolutely the best part of our trip to the big island. Uncle Les and the other guides were amazing! Their passion and love for the land and their culture made this ATV ride top notch. Not only do you get to ride the ATV, swim in a waterfall, and take in the beautiful scenery....you also learn about the... More

These guys really have a lot of passion for their history/culture and love to share it. The tour is great (over 10 miles of riding the ATV) and the 3 stop points are nicely timed. We had unfortunate weather for the second half (clouds/rain) so we didn't get the view of the large waterfall, but can imagine how stunning that... More

We had an excellent adventure with Ride The Rim. If you want to get muddy riding an ATV or UTV, see some excellent views and learn about the Waipio Valley and the nature surrounding it, this it the tour to take. The tour guide, Rez, was very informative and fun. The only thing to plan on, is having clothes and... More

We signed up because we heard the riding ATV's near the Waipio valley was a pretty cool thing to do. The experience was that and so much more. BIG thank you to our guides (Rez? Brendan? And the older gentleman who seemed to know pretty much everything). The basics are: you meet a little general store to link up with... More

We went a few days ago with a friend family. We you got the buggies that held 3 to 4 people. It was a blast and the views were spectacular. So glad we decided to add this to our list of activities while on Kona this time.
