Experience Honolulu History & Cultural Tour with Segway of Hawaii!

Step aboard as you learn to learn to ride your very own Segway Personal Transporter and once training is completed your Honolulu Segway tour experience takes you along Oahu’s waterfront to Aloha Tower at Honolulu Harbor to check out the restored coral reef and the fish that now comes to feed.

We then enter downtown Honolulu through historic Bishop Street, passing the historic transportation buildings from more than a century ago as you glide into colorful Chinatown and Hotel Street to make our way toward Washington Place, home to Hawaii’s Governor, the State Capitol Building, and then enter the grounds of Iolani Palace – home to the only palace on American soil. Here, we view the centuries-old banyan trees on the Palace grounds, see Iolani Barracks, the King Kamehameha Statue, and the historic Kawaiahao Church and continue gliding beside the little nestle of austere buildings that form the Mission Houses built in 1820 by Hawaii’s first missionaries. This Oahu Segway tour truly takes you back through Hawaii’s history as you enjoy riding on the technology of today!

We then glide back toward the ocean and Kaka’ako Waterfront Park, where we glide to see the Echo Stone and the Ehime Maru Memorial and the Park’s spectacular cross-island vistas. You may even enjoy some Hawaii whale watching during the winter months too!

We then head back towards the beach and glide back to our starting point. This two-hour tour offers an experiential glide through the history of 19th Century Honolulu and how that history has shaped the culture of Honolulu today.

Honolulu History & Cultural Tour Includes: Cold bottle of water and cold Oshiburi at the end of the tour.
