None of the three of us had tried these interesting modes of transportation. I fall into the category of if I can do it, anybody can do it. It is easy and surprisingly fun.

First time on a Segway so the whole family had a good time. Cool gardens, pretty good waterfall, semi-educational. A bit pricey considering the guide was a bit young and not really that knowledgeable but he did his best. Being on the Segway was super cool and definitely made the tour what it was.

This was one the highlights of our vacation. We just did the one hour Segway tour but it was super fun. Our guide, Keneau, was fantastic and very knowledgeable. All the folks working there were very nice and helpful. We had a nice picnic at the waterfalls, too.

I didn't realize that we'd be doing the Segway tour through such beautiful gardens. All week we'd been seeing and wondering about the various plants and surprisingly it took a Segway tour to give us some answers. Our guide, Keanu, quickly but efficiently led us through the Segway riding intro (most of us were experienced riders) then we set off... More

Segways were a hoot! It became very natural surprisingly quickly. We toured amazing gardens and took a trip up to a waterfall. Our guide, Ipo, was not only entertaining but very knowledgable. The entire family enjoyed learning about how the native Hawaiians use the plants for food, medicine, and tools, and learning the legends/culture was an extra fun bonus.

We booked our Segway tour several days in advance and were very fortunate to have our guide, Ipo, all to ourselves. We had taken a Segway tour several years ago and her careful instructions helped get us comfortable again. Her knowledge of the gardens and surrounding areas was quite amazing. From the tasting of certain plants to the interesting details... More
