Ever dreamed of whizzing past Waikiki’s most famous landmarks and attractions without streams of traffic or wasted gas? Segway of Hawaii has been making this dream a possibility for tourists and locals alike for the past nine years, and you, too, can join in on the fun! Just hop on one of the six offered tours throughout Waikiki and Honolulu, (after a quick 15-minute safety lesson), and enjoy a 100-percent, eco-friendly adventure in paradise.
“Our tours are a great way for first-timers and return visitors alike to enjoy their time and do something good for Hawai‘i’s precious environment as well,” comments owner of Segway of Hawaii, Alan Rice.
Fortunately, these trips are both for leisure and learning as educated tour guides teach visitors Waikiki’s past and present history. Segway of Hawaii’s most popular trip takes their customers around Diamond Head and Waikiki, gliding past many thrilling sites, such as the statues of the famous, Hawaiian surfer Duke Kahanamoku and The Merrie Monarch King Kalakaua.
“It’s just so much fun and a great way to see the sights of Waikiki and/or Honolulu up-close and personally,” Rice adds.
So the next time you’re visiting Waikiki, ditch your car and ride Segway style with Segway of Hawaii.
