You will not be disappointed!!!

“This was by far my favorite activity in Maui!!! My horse Aloha was incredible and made me feel comfortable the whole time. The ranch managers and staff are excellent! They make you feel safe the whole time! I had a blast and wish I could have spent the entire day at the ranch!”

A must for a Maui visit!

“If you are visiting Maui, you MUST take this horseback riding tour! We had never been on a horse before, and Don and his entire staff were very patient and thorough and we felt very safe and relaxed. The views are just amazing, and unless you take a helicopter ride around the island, you will not see this incredible view. My wife and I rode with her brother and his wife and the four of us had a one of a kind experience in Maui!”

An unforgettable experience!

“So much fun! The wranglers were friendly, funny and very easy in the eyes! Horses were calm and easy to navigate for a first time rider like myself. Such a fun way to enjoy the wonderful Maui views and learn the history behind Mendes Ranch. A great experience all around.”

Horseback heaven!

“Staff was very fun, friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were very well trained so even a newby can ride. The trail and views were amazing. I loved the history of the ranch. We would do this again our next trip. Well worth it.”

Unique Island Experience!

“This tour takes you away from the tourist scene and shows you the beauty of the island in a way you won’t see unless you experience it on horseback. The ranch was beautiful and loaded with many different, interesting animals. Each horse has their own personality and the guides do their best to pair the rider with the horse best suited to them. They take time to educate riders on safety and the history of the ranch and island.”
