Book now!

Going in the Gardens on a Segway® Personal Transporter (PT) is such a cool experience. When you're on a Segway PT you know you are having fun because of the Segway Smile, and when you glide in the rainforest -- it just doesn't get any better!

Start out with an introductory tour and learn the machine with your certified guide. Then step into the experience of riding on a longer trip where your guides will lead you all through the gardens, the rainforest and even a longer journey to Kamae'e Falls at the top of the gardens property.

See the 360 degree views that include Mauna Kea with its observatories, the paniolo cattle ranch, and the wide blue Pacific Ocean with whales occasionally breaching within view. This is the glide of a lifetime!

Explore the scenic Hawaiian countryside, visit historic areas where your guides will share stories, ride through the gardens and explore the rainforest - all this while effortlessly gliding on a Segway® Personal Transporter (PT).

Safety helmets are a must and are provided for each rider at no extra charge.

Our staff is well trained in Segway PT technology to ensure every customer has the best possible experience.
