After the convenient hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach, sink into a comfortable seat for the journey up the mountain. Make a stop at the Kula Lodge Marketplace where you can experience the art and culinary talents of Maui and Hawaii's renowned artists and craftsmen.

After a stop at the Haleakala Park Visitor Center at about 7,000 feet (2,134m), make the final, winding, push towards the volcano’s magnificent summit. The crater overlook is just below the summit at 9,740 feet (2,969m), and there’s a good chance you’ll be one of the only people there. Gaze upon the colorful crater with its smooth, lunar cinder cones, and peer across the orange horizon to the peaks of the Big Island in the distance. After staying to watch the stars twinkle high above the volcano, descend the mountain for a 3-course meal near sea level at Café O’Lei. Meal options are both meat and vegetarian, and the evening concludes with a convenient drop-off right back at your hotel.

Sample Dinner Menu:

First Course:

Caesar salad

Kula green salad with papaya seed and lilikoi dressing (veg)

Portuguese bean soup

Second Course:

Top sirloin steak

Chicken linguine

Grilled vegetable Napoleon over quinoa with pesto and balsamic reduction (veg)

Very organized & efficient company. Confirmed reservation & pickup location early on. The staff is unbelievably kind & knowledgeable of the history Hawai’i. The views, ocean or an ocean of clouds is something one may never experience again. Absolutely must see in Maui!!

Awesome trip! Our tour guide was outstanding. Being a local, he knew so much information that he shared that made the drive to and from interesting. He went out of his way to make sure we ALL had a great experience. He got out of his van, up on Mt. Haleakala and took many pictures of us in order for us to have great memories. The other driver/guide just sat in her van while ours was out with us sharing the COLD and and beautiful sights. It WAS cold!! Some of our fellow travelers showed up in shorts, skirts, sleeveless shirts and and froze their buns off. PEOPLEbelieve 5e description when it tells you to bring coats and other cold weather gear. Were from Chicago and we were glad we had brought a light winter coat, gloves, and hatyou need them. The vistas at the top are incomparable. If youre going to Mauitake this tour.

This is a great tour if you don't want to worry about anything and let someone else take you up. Although our tour guide was very nice and helpful and easy to get along with, after doing the tour, i couldn't justify the price point. I paid a lot of money considering the road going up is actually very smooth, the only issue is the height. If you have already rented a car which almost everyone does and heights don't bug you, i would highly recommend just driving up yourselfJust drive slowly when going down. The sunset is amazing and so are the views at the top. We spent about an hour and a half at the top and then VERY quickly made our way down for the dinner. The dinner was ok, but nothing crazy. The tour also doesn't take you to the summit Where the observatories are, but if you drive yourself, you can go up there too. But just keep in mind, its not that much higher than where this tour takes you. The cost to enter is around 25-30 i think, so its definitely worth it to just drive up yourself and we saw TONS of people who had driven up themselves.

The overall experience was amazing--and the tour guide Henry only made it better! The tour is extremely well organized and efficient, yet we always felt the aloha spirit. What a wonderful opportunity! Roads to and from the top are very winding, so recommend folks prone to motion sickness take appropriate precautions.

Excellent tour! Being above the clouds was unreal. Our tour guide, Judy, was very knowledeable about the area and shared some very interesting facts. The dinner, following sunset was just OK at best. We didn't get to eat until well after 9pm and the food was just mediocre. The server we had was nice and friendly but I got the impression that he, along with the rest of the staff at the restaurant were ready to close up and go home. Still, the sights on the mountain well surpassed the meal.

As others reviewers have said, Henry was great, funny, knowledgeable and a skilled driver. Our weather was good and sunset clear. The disappointing thing was the poor quality of the meal and rushed service waitress literally slammed water glass on table. Go enjoy the view which is totally amazing! Check the weather forecast before you book.

Henry, our driver, was excellent. He was a skilled driver, very knowledgeable and entertaining. There are many switch backs up and down the volcano, so some in our group had some motion sickness. The view inside the dormant volcano and the sunset were well worth a visit. Thank goodness we were down on flat ground when a mechanical problem with the bus and this stranded us until a replacement bus could come and transfer us to another vehicle. This was done without too much delay and we were taken to the restaurant for the pre paid evening meal. This is when things started to go more seriously wrong. Cafe O Ley provided a tolerable meal, but their staff very obviously were aggravated by our delayed arrival. After rushing us through our meal they told us our buses were waiting outside to transfer us to our various resorts. They didn't even serve us the coffee that was promised on the menu. There were no buses waiting outside, and so 24 passengers were stranded outside not knowing what was happening. I did spot one of the waitresses hurrying off home. Two different groups in our party took taxis rather than wait beyond the twenty five minutes we were stranded there. The chaos seemed to have been caused by all the company's buses bring over extended by a cruise ship being in Lahaina, They obviously could not cope when one of their buses had to be taken out of commission . Hopefully this will be a rare occurrence for future travellers. Thank goodness our bus had completed the worst of the road's challenges coming down the steep side of the volcano before some of the mechanics failed.

The tour was excellent. The guide was excellent. He gave us a lot of good information about the crater, the plants there, and Maui. We would highly recommend the tour. The only issue was the food included for dinner at the end. The food was not the greatest and our guide told us all drinks that were non-alcoholic were included. The restaurant tried to charge us for the soda we ordered only because our guide told us the soda was included. My husband argues with the restaurant staff and we did not pay but in the future, what is included should be accurately explained. However once again the tour itself was excellent and the crater was a highlight of my trip.
