Description

from Hawaii Hoverboarding Waikiki “Wiki” Tour
An unforgettable 1-hour 45-minute guided tour of Waikiki on an exciting all-terrain self-balancing electric hoverboard! Large rugged all-terrain tires provide added stability and confidence over Waikiki's sand, dirt trails, rough sidewalks, and grassy areas.

The highly informative tour of Waikiki was designed to showcase the beauty, history, and unique culture of Hawaii. With the use of an exclusive wireless audio system, you'll learn about the many dimensions of Hawaii and hear about what you see along the entire ride. Listen to nostalgic Hawaiian music or hear commentary from your expert guide while you hover through the historic Kapiolani Park, glide past charming cottages and multi-million dollar estates of the Gold Coast, stop at secret beaches, ride along palm tree laced Kaimana Beach, cruise by surf breaks and more!

This guided hoverboard tour of Waikiki even includes some souvenir digital photos and coconut water!

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 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 Beach. 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 stop at a nearly secluded beach, and we'll point out hidden bunkers from diamond head's military history.

Heading back, we'll stop at 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 hovering along a canopy-covered trail of monkeypod trees.

You'll then glide along near the water with views of the world-famous Waikiki beach. Your island adventure concludes by enjoying the breathtaking beach views hovering back to our start location and listening to famous Hawaiian music, even a song composed in 1874 by the very last Hawaiian Monarch, Queen Liliuokalani!

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.

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!
