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 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 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, and ride through an Indian banyan that is over a century old. 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 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

"choose this segway tour!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 26, 2020
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.
