from Hawaii Hoverboarding Waikiki "Sunset Glow" Tour
Take in a memorable tropical sunset while exploring Waikiki on a glowing all-terrain self-balancing electric hoverboard! The 2-hour 15-minute fun and highly informative guided tour showcase the beauty, history, and unique culture of Hawaii. Wireless audio headsets connect to an expert guide for commentary and music along the entire ride.

Discover the little-known secrets of Waikiki while taking in the highlights of Diamond Head, Gold coast, Kaimana Beach, and Waikiki Beach during the most magical time of day!

Included in this tour are free professionally edited souvenir digital photos!

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 at Kapiolani Park, you'll first learn to recognize some of the most popular island trees, such as Rainbow Shower and Monkeypod. 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 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 relax with nostalgic tiki pop culture comedy songs and ride through an Indian banyan that is over a century old. We try to guess Hawaii filmed movies and TV shows from their soundtracks on the way to take in the beach views while we hover towards the setting sun.

To soak up the relaxed island ambiance, we'll glide back along the promenade listening to famous Hawaiian music, even a song composed in 1874 by the very last Hawaiian Monarch, Queen Liliuokalani!

"Excellent Sunset Tour"
November 2018
I highly recommend Hawaii Hoverboarding Tours in Waikiki. I recently rode their Sunset tour, outstanding value and fun! I saw and learned a lot about Hawaii, enjoyed seeing the beaches, park and Diamond Head. Riding was fairly intuitive and our guide did a good job of explaining the dos and don'ts of riding. Operating and riding was a blast. It saved my feet as we easily covered far more than I could have on foot. The Sunset tour gives a big bonus, you get to see Hawaii's awesome sunsets looking out over Waikiki's famous beach with its swimmers, surfers and boats, boats,boats. The night atmosphere and lights are the frosting on the cake. This tour is a must do, you will remember. Five Stars for Hawaii Hoverboarding Tours! From C in CA Nov 2018
