Itinerary
Your hoverboarding adventure starts when you make your way to the front of the Honolulu Zoo in Waikiki and meet your local guide. After 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 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!

Hover to the Waikiki War Memorial and Natatorium, then glide over the sand along a palm tree-lined walkway to a favorite local 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 past Diamond Head lighthouse 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 back along the beachfront boardwalk with wonderful views of Waikiki while listening to 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

"choose this segway tour!"

I was checking out all the different segway tours online trying to choose one that would be the best. My wife and I have been on many different segway tours and we like the ones with the bigger wheels. they are a more comfortable ride and can go on lawns,beaches,ect. Steve was great and played information about various places in our headset as we traveled so there was minimal stopping. he also had great snacks and drinks he shared with us. overall a perfect segway tour!

A birthday surprise for me, friends took me on this tour on our first day in Hawaii. We were lucky to just have the 4 of us. Steve was full of information, professional yet personable and an all round great guy. This was not our first time on a hover board / Segway, but it was our first ‘off road’. I would definitely recommend this as a different way of seeing and learning about Hawaii!

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.
