The mini bus holds about 25 people when maxed out, but doesn't feel like a school bus. Very comfortable with large windows and comfortable captain's chairs for seats. No cup holders, but nice otherwise. Also, the bus did not seem "top-heavy" like it would tip easy like some old school buses do. The guide played slow Hawaiian tunes while everyone was bleary in the wee hours of the morning, which I thought was a nice touch and pleasant. Our driver had a great personality and was a local, who told us stories but did not ramble on too much. She was very pleasant, and a good driver. Our bus made a few stops on the way down which I liked, and she got us to the restrooms faster than the other tours. Not enough restrooms on the mountain so go when you can. The sunrise itself was crowded but was worth it IMO. If the wind wasn't so blustery it wouldn't have been that bad, but the temperature on the top was about 44 degrees (not bad for us midwesterners) but then you add in WIND CHILL, and it was a little harsh--felt more like 25 degrees because of high winds (I estimate about 40mph) VERY windy. The only thing I did not care for on this tour was the ending, which took us to a nice restaurant with three choices of breakfast A B or C you had to pick one. The food itself was OK but I would have rather just went back to my condo and planned my own breakfast and started the day. Otherwise highly recommended.
Let me start by saying that we are not really "tour" people. We like to go and see what there is to see not through someone else's lens, but through our own. A lot of tours give you a ton of information about this that and the other, but mostly we want to experience things without a lot of noise, or commentary. That being said we did enjoy the Haleakala Sunrise tour, largely because it took the work out of driving up Haleakala in the dark. It was very crowded once we got there, because we got there a lot later than everyone else. All in all the tour took about 8 hours, which was honestly about 4 hours longer than it needed to be. While I gave them 4 stars, because they provided what they promised, I would not recommend doing it this way. I would go with some people who had done it before and were not afraid of the drive. It wasn't a bad value, just was not the experience that I wanted.
