Included in this tour are free digital souvenir photos, local snack samples, coconut water, and audio headset use!

Itinerary
Your 2-hour 45-minute hoverboarding adventure starts when you make your way to the front of the Honolulu Zoo in Waikiki and meet your local guide. After a safety instruction and practice, your hoverboard will become an extension of you to effortlessly explore the island on. Pop on your wireless one-ear audio receiver to learn about Hawaii's nature, history, and listen to nostalgic Hawaiian music as you hover from place to place.

Since you'll start in the heart of the action at Kapiolani Park, you'll first learn to recognize some of the most popular island trees such as exceptional Indian Banyan, Rainbow Shower, Monkeypod, Ironwood, Plumeria, Coconut Palm, and more. We take in the impressive beach views while learning about ancient Hawaiian and modern surfing on Oahu, known as the 'birthplace of surfing'. Stop at a little known prior human sacrificial temple location and learn about Hawaii's ancient Gods, Kings, Queens, and priestly Kahuna. Listen to beautiful examples of uniquely Hawaiian instruments such as the slack key guitar and ukulele as we explore the bandstand, then take a profile pic worthy photo at Diamond Heads most photogenic location. Hear about the island's volcanic birth, and learn how the fire Goddess Pele created it all!

As you look into the water for fish at a popular snorkeling and scuba location, your guide will show closeup photos of native marine life like green sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals, sharks and more! Hover to the Waikiki War Memorial and Natatorium, then glide over the sand along a palm tree-lined walkway to a local favorite beach Kaimana. Take in the charming historic cottages and multi-million dollar mansions in the Gold Coast while learning about the architecture and real estate development of Hawaii. You'll next climb up the face of Diamond Head to marvel at the panoramic ocean vistas, look for neighbor islands and whales in winter months, and point out hidden bunkers and diamond head's military history.

Heading back we stop to sample some local snacks, see where one of the richest men in Hawaii in the '50s and '60s once lived, listen to nostalgic tiki pop culture comedy songs, ride through an Indian banyan that is over a century old, and learn about Hawaii's first and last king's. Try to guess Hawaii filmed movies and TV shows from their soundtracks while taking in the waterfront views of Waikiki.

You'll then glide past hotels and residential condos, prior residences of past monarch's, and along Waikiki beach to the famous "Duke" statue. You'll return to the start location with famous Hawaiian music.

"Great Tour"
November 2018
First I have to say I am not a person who normally writes a review, but I so enjoyed this Aloha Tour that I wanted to write one. I have taken tours like this before in other cities and this was by far the best I have taken. Along with the fun of riding, I learned so much about Hawaii and saw so much, and of course the scenery was beautiful. Steve, the Tour Guide was friendly and very informative with a little humor thrown in. The Tour included information about Hawaii and also the sites we saw along the way and Hawaiian music to go along with what he was talking about. At one stop he showed us pictures of the fish we could see in Hawaii and as we looked into the water we could see many of those fish. We stopped for a short rest and he gave us some Hawaiian snacks to try, even poi! I’m glad I took this Tour. It was so much fun. ——— Kay, 11/2018

My family and I have taken several tours of this type in different places. The audio was excellent it made staying together and hearing what Steve was telling us so much easier than other tours like this that we had already experienced. The snacks were a welcomed break. Steve is an excellent and knowledgeable,e guide. I highly recommend this tour with this company.

Reviewed March 15, 2019
Get ready folks, my review is long. My husband and I travel alot. Every country or city we visit, we do a segway tour on our first day. I feel like with a segway tour, I can covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time while getting a little history along the way. Most segway tours start out with a tutorial on how to ride, but since it was just me and my husband, we really didn’t need a long tutorial. What attracted me to this company was the hover-board title. We found the company on google so we checked it out. Its a very appealing website that offered a coupon code as well. I felt like the tour was a little pricy, but the idea of using a hover-board on top of the available days and times had us sold. Pros: Availability. The tours are offered on many days at various times which is great Very friendly guide. Steve is the owner and made our tour very personalized with the small talk etc. I enjoyed that Snacks! Yes. We stopped about 3 times during our tour and with each stop, Steve gave us a sample of Hawaiian snacks that the locals eat. Ive been on over a dozen segway tours and this was a first. Steve made sure there was restroom stops along the way. Hawaiian music. We each was given a headset where we could hear the tour guide. When the tour guide wasn’t talking, we listened to island music...my husband thought the music was a little distracting, but I enjoyed it This tour is great for beginners on the segway, Steve is a great teacher. He took a-lot of pictures! He will email them to you as well. I liked how he used his camera to snap pictures of us. Saved a-lot of time. With other tours in the past, everyone took turns pulling our their cellphone to get the tour guide to take pics. I liked that he used his camera. Cons: Theres really no huge difference to me between the “hover-board” and segway. We were able to ride on the grass a little more with the Hoover and his was a little more wider. It sparked my interest and its a good selling tactic; but don’t let that be the only reason to do the tour. Ive been able to ride in the grass a little with segways in the past. The tour was pre recorded. I felt like as a tour guide, on his end; its clever because you don’t have to remember what to say with each group. On the other hand as a customer, i felt like we were moving faster than what was recorded. So I found him, slowing us down to make his recording match our speed. I didn’t really like that When we were just listening to the island music on our headset, I still felt like we were moving slow. He was being super cautious as well. Telling us over and oiver to watch for this and that. I get it, but after a while I was tired if hearing it. I felt like I heard it more than I ever heard with any tours in the past. The tour is in Waikiki close to the beach and I really didn’t like weaving around the crowds of people. I couldn’t really focus on his voice and avoid running into people. We did the afternoon tour, maybe the morning tour would of been better for us. In our tour, it mention about going to Diamond head....well, i thought we was gonna actually go to the Mountain. Thats not the case, we rode to a spot where we was able to get a good view but don’t expect to go anywhere close to the mountain. Was a little disappointed about that. Overall, I say book the tour. I think you would enjoy it!

I must admit that before going on the hover board I was a bit nervous as to whether or not I would be able to keep it balanced and controlled out in traffic. It was awesome! Our guide was patient and very understanding of my nervousness. He was thorough in helping us understand how to control the hoverboard and kept the jittery people closest to him on our travels. I enjoyed it fully!

This tour was hands down the highlight of our trip! We went on the sunset glow tour, Steve was super friendly and full of great Hawaiian facts! We really enjoyed being able to listen in to the guided headsets as well as being able to hear Steve talk to us through them loud and clear, this was great as it can be hard to hear each other otherwise. The tour was very well organised! I felt as though Steve went above and beyond on this tour taking photos, providing food and drink, we didn’t have to think about a thing other than looking at the beautiful sights and it was so appreciated by us! Can’t recommend this tour enough! :)
