In early April, my daughter and I rode the red line. Ciso was a fabulous tour guide. He was easy to hear (not muffled), funny and informative. We liked that could get on and off at leisure. We got off at the Honolulu Museum of Art and the Japanese temple. (Temple was lovely. Chinatown area was a bit sketchy.) The bus was on time and not terribly crowded. This was a nice and safe way to spend the day! (We appreciated that Ciso showed us a hidden piece of art at Salt...and even offered a quick bathroom break at Ward!) We have ridden the bus on past trips (pre-Covid) and this return tour did not disappoint! (One day of riding was $40 US for adult and child.)

This tour was great! You have enough time at each place (about an hour) to really explore, or you can just ride it around and see the city. Our guide Ciso was very knowledgeable and gave us interesting facts along the way, including little history lessons. He was so funny too! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a good view of Honolulu.

My favorite part was stopping at Hanauma Bay and being able to take photos and video, however, Finny makes the entire tour. He points out all of the thinga that would possibly ask. I don’t remember anyone asking questions. He engaged the guests and encouraged them to play aling in answering the questions. His personality was outstanding and he pulled you on with some personal information about he and his fiancé which made you feel more comfortable. HE IS THE BEST!

As most travellers know, all it takes is a single event to taint one’s vacation experience. In this case, that taint came in the form of the ticket checker at the Waikiki Shopping Plaza trolly stop (stop #1), on the afternoon of April 26th

We had been enjoying our 7 day all line pass, and had several wonderful trips on the pink red and blue lines. Every driver deserved 5 stars.

This was the last day of our 7 day pass; we decided to take one last trip on the red line to visit Zippy’s on Vineyard, and spend the afternoon at Foster Botanical Gardens, so we hopped on the pink line, to the Waikiki Shopping Plaza to catch the 12:30 red line.

When we got there, 20 minutes before the red line arrived, the the ticket checker was loudly disparage “his drivers”, telling other waiting customers “I’m going to have to talk to my drivers”, and “they should not have let you do that”.

As the red line arrived, he positioned us just makai of the trolly stop sign. When all the passengers had exited the arriving trolley, he decreed that we were in the wrong place (exactly where he positioned us), and that he would be boarding us last.

My wife has mobility issues, and uses two canes; getting on early determines if we get on at all, so we walked away to have lunch. Angry, and frustrated. My only words to him were “that would have been nice to know”

We returned later to take the pink line back to our hotel. When we showed him our all line email ticket, he told us we could not get on the trolly with that, and proceeded to write up an orange slip. His coworker didn’t really seem to buy into this, but said it was a good idea. It was then that we realized that he had been doing this to everyone who had an email ticket.

Our email pass explicitly states:
“Use this email confirmation as your ticket to ride the Waikiki Trolley Pink, Red and Blue Lines.
Just show this email to the Pink, Red or Blue Line driver as you hop on at any of our convenient stops located throughout Waikiki.”

I’m not sure why he decided to implement his own policy, unless he gets a bonus for each orange slip.

This tainted what may be our last trip to Waikiki, and I expect he had had the same effect on hundreds of Waikiki Trolley patrons that day.

For $5.00/person/day, you can hop on and off the trolley from Ala Moana Shopping Center to Waikiki. There are about 10 pick up points, running every 30 min this was a convenient way to get around. The best part was the entertaining driver, Uncle Tony, who pointed out the sights, provided tips, and gave an essential lesson in some Hawaiian words.

The trolley is the best way to go around the important spots on the island. I recommend buying the 4 day unlimited rides because you can hop on and off and use the 3 different lines so you don’t miss anything! Tour guides are very fun and knowledgeable, some of them will also talk about the best restaurants and affordable activities. Definitely recommended!!!

I rode the blue line and it was such a gorgeous, scenic bus route! We got to stop at the Halona Blow Hole to take pictures for about 10 to 15 minutes, which was greatly appreciated. There is also a coastline that will absolutely take your breath away.

I'd just recommend sitting in the part of the bus that isn't behind metal bars. It gets too windy!

And let's say you're facing the back of the bus, you'll see a lot more scenic stuff (Diamond Head, the "beverly hills of hollywood, giraffes from a nearby zoo, whale watching) sitting on the RIGHT side of the bus. Or you can sit in the back and watch both sides.

I wouldn't recommend this bus ride for people with back issues. The seats don't provide support.

We used the $5 per person/day trolley to go to the Ala Moana Shopping Center and it was such a great deal! Also a great way to see Waikiki. Love the freedom to be able to hop on and off as needed all day long. We are a family of five and it was a cheap and easy way for us to travel, with convenient pick up and drop off points, and trolleys running every 30 mins. Big props and shout-out to one of our drivers, Keoki, who made the ride fun and entertaining. Not every driver we had was like that, so you are lucky if you get him!

We did the Waikiki Trolley several years ago and decided to buy a seven day pass for our trip this year. Today we rode the Blue Line with Vicky. She was wonderful giving us great facts about Hawaii, telling us legends etc. She was a great driver and a great tour guide. I hope to see her again. Thanks, Vicky

I took the Blue line hop on hop off trolley in waikiki last 10/2021. I purchased 1 day pass online but you can also purchase the ticket in person.
Our tour guide/trolley driver was Finny! 5/5 stars! I really enjoyed his tour guide as he did a great job sharing about the interesting history of the attractions and great tips to maximize the local experience in hawaii (great places to eat, hike, swim etc). His good sense of humor made the riders smile and laugh! It was interactive tour as Finny answered questions from the riders. I remember almost falling asleep when I went to other trolley rides before in other states (I won’t mention which one) as it was “too educational” for me lol!! But not with Finny! It was fun! He also did a great job communicating with the riders about the pick up time when they were hopping off the trolley before the final stop (same stop as the first pick up area). Mahalo Finny and Waikiki trolley tour team!
