haleakala crater sunset tour

Overall rating

Cousin Mitch did a great job explaining the culture, history and beauty of Haleakala on our sunset tour on Saturday October 29.

The Haleakala National Park possesses a unique landscape and a variety of species only found there. All the stops we made on our way up were worth it, however, our guide told us that the restaurant and visitor's center ... were not operating because of a lack of personnel, so it'd be nicer to have these options available. According to the description of the tour, we were supposed to get back to our pick-up place/hotel after 10 pm but we got back at 8:30 pm. I was expecting to do some stargazing up there in the mountain but there was no time, our guide asked us to be back n the van at 6:45 pm...so this is was I liked the least!! Other than that, our guide was very polite and helpful, and he gave us a lot of information about the places we were visiting.

Gorgeous Experience!

Sunset seems to be just as beautiful! Happy I chose tis tour to get up the volcano
