Segway in the Gardens is such a cool experience. When you Segway you know you are having fun, and when you do it in the rainforest -- it just doesn't get any better than this.
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).
