Your certified guide will lead you through our botanical gardens where you can experience the taste of spices and a variety of organic fruits, listen to the soothing trade winds and then off to places deep into the rainforest you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience, unless you are a true hiker. On a Segway, these trails become rites of passage, that makes this a once in a lifetime opportunity for a fun and tropical adventure in a way you call your own. « less

We had a lovely morning with Arlen at the Botanical Gardens. He was super fun and we thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. I am a plant person so the whole tour was educational. We loved the off-road Segways. Our friends had never Segwayed before so it was particularly entertaining to them. A great way to see the gardens. Hint: Go early... More

We bought a pass to the gardens with a zipline and segway combo. We had a great time. When we did the segway tour and Arrlen was our guide. He gave good directions and let us practice and we caught on right away. We even rode it through the maze. Your body just guides the direction that the segway will... More

My sister and I were headed to the Hawaii Tropical Botanic Gardens when an early turn off the road landed us at the Botanical World Adventures. By the time we realized our mistake, I had already purchased the 2.5 hour Segway tour. I was a little unhappy at first when they wouldn't refund my money, but I quickly did an... More

Segway tour was easily one of the highlights of our stay at the Big Island (along with getting stuck because of hurricane Iselle.) Our tour guide, Arlin (sp?), was great. He's fun, professional, friendly and knowledgeable and attentive. It's our first time on Segway and Arlin made it easy to follow & learn. After a couple of minutes on Segway,... More

Today my husband & I took the Mamalahoa Segway Tour at Botanical World Adventures and had a fantastic time! This was our first time on segway and I was a little nervous about taking a 2.5 hour tour my first time out. Our guide was Keanu and he was terrific. He did a great job teaching us how to handle...

To be honest we were more interested in the Segway riding than the tour, so we chose the 1 hour Botanical Garden Tour. What a blast. None of us had ever tried a Segway. The young fellow that took care of us showed great concern and patience. He introduced us to the Segway and ensured each of us was comfortable... More

Being a first time zipliner wanted to try something mellow and this was perfect now I am ready to try a different level. The gardens here were beautiful, plants, flowers, trees are labeled and is on 10 acres. They also have Segways to rent and they have a walking maze. Guides were excellent and office staff were very friendly. Note:... More

If you are a gardener, farmer and/or nature lover this is for you! We did not do the Zipline or the ride the Segways but walked through the 10 acres of lush vegetation. Flowers, trees and plants are labeled. The gardens are well marked trail/sidewalks/signs to get you to where you are going. There is a maze (think English gardens)... More

Aloha! Mahalo for coming to see us. We appreciate that you chose to be our guest in the gardens. We have recently made new efforts to improve the signage on the plants in the gardens. We have over 1,000 species identified and are adding to that list every day. It has been estimated (as the gardens was developing) that we... More

Rain or Shine, the show goes on, and remember - you are in a rainforest, so come prepared for RAIN, but wear layers, it can turn sunny in a split second, then pour down rain the next minute. That said, we had a BLAST. The staff was excellent, the equipment was in great shape, and the Segways are so much... More

We took the two and half hour adventure on the segways. The sights were amazing, especially the waterfalls and our tour guide, Arlin was an added bonus. He was very professional but still had a great sense of humor, extremely educated about all the plants,flowers, fruits, land and trees. The office staff was friendly and organized. I would definitely recommend... More
