Adventurous and fun
, Sep 2021
We repelled down one dry run and 2 waterfalls. Going down the waterfalls was thrilling. It was intimidating at first but they do a good job at going over the basics. Liked that our group was small - just 6 people total but would have liked to do more repelling.

The water splashing in the face while climbing down the falls - exhilarating - I would like to do it again with larger falls and longer time !

I Repealed Down a Waterfall
, Sep 2021
What an experience. My wife and I booked this tour even though she had no repealing experience. The guides were great. There is nothing like saying you've repealed down a waterfall in the rainforest.

Going down the waterfall...
, Sep 2021
Going down the waterfall and the tour guides, deacon and Naomi. First time experience and for my birthday weekend and I loved it and will be doing again.
, Aug 2021
Our tour guides were amazing and very knowledgeable. When we met them, they were super friendly and encouraging to those who were a bit more scared. I was scared but by the last waterfall I felt a lot more confident. Truly such an amazing experience and highly recommend
Fantastic and unforgettable experience
, Aug 2021
Loved, loved, loved this adventure! This was my first time ever rappelling off anything, much less cliffs and waterfalls. Our family of 6 (my husband and I plus 4 children ranging in age from 13-20). I was apprehensive and very intimidated by the whole thing but our guides were super patient and gave us great instructions. It was an unforgettable experience and made for spectacular family memories. I highly recommend this, you won't regret it. It was pricey but worth every penny.
Disappointed with dry rappelling
, Aug 2021
Disappointed that we did not get to experience waterfalls or swimming as water conditions were deemed inappropriate. Was very overpriced for 3 dry rappels.

Beware when booking through Viator.
, Aug 2021
We were a group of 5 traveling from the east coast and could not have been more excited for this adventure. I booked the experience through viator in early July for August 5. I received confirmation emails, and was able to download my tickets and my credit card was billed for close to $1000. Upon arrival we were greeted by the Rappel guide who told us we were not on the list and that this happens all the time when booking with Viator. She then walked us to the starting point and had us call the main office for Rappel Maui. Jody at Rappel Maui was pleasant and explained that we should not have booked through Viator since this does happen quite frequently. Okay! So why then, I asked, has Rappel Maui continued to partner with Viator???? She had no answer for me. She could only assist by requesting a refund. She could not fit us in on any other date, she did not offer a discount voucher for our next trip to Maui ( we come every 6 months) nor did she offer to give us a call if there happened to be a cancellation within the next 2 weeks. As a small business owner myself I am baffled by all of this. Customer service by both Viator and Rappel Maui have A LOT to be desired. If Viator is known to double book on behalf of Rappel Maui, why not require the customer to email or call Rappel to confirm? Why is Viator's system so unreliable? Why does the Rappel site and other Maui adventure sites direct the customer to the Viator site when they know that their system is flawed. I am being generous here. I didn't get angry with anyone at Rappel, it isn't their fault. I was pleasant in dealing with Jody and was clearly very sad and disappointed but I didn't take it out on them. We were, after all, in Maui! I'd be a crazy person to not be simply grateful to be in this beautiful place. That being said, we drove from Kapalua, 2 hours, to the Rappel site only to be told we should not have booked through Viator. I believe both companies should take a good look at what is happening here. I will NEVER book through Viator again, nor will I recommend Rappel Maui to anyone since they didn't try to work something out for us. There are other Rappel companies and I am certain they are far superior. It is easy to surpass Rappel in quality of experience since they denied us an experience! Lesson learned.
