    Hanapueo Tour (120 Minutes - Rating: CHALLENGING to ADVANCED)

    When riders have mastered the basics of gliding the Segway PT they are ready for a new level of ride. The Segway X2 is an off road vehicle that can go off road and really needs to to be appreciated fully. This tour provides just the perfect location running along the Hanapueo stream mauka (to mountain) from the Botanical Gardens. The trails are designed to give a great area of the rain forest to guide guests for an elevated touring experience, literally and figuratively. The tour takes riders under the zip lines and through interesting challenges to give gliders a one of a kind experience. The tour takes riders to areas of the gardens seen by only the avid hikers and zip line riders. Furthermore the views from Kamaee Falls are spectacular. From Mauna Kea to the wide Pacific blue, the views are spectacular and the Segway gives the world a new edge!

    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).

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Segway adventure, the park is varied in landscape and our guide taught us about many plants, I won't go into detail as this may spoil it for others, but we leaned many fascinating facts. To us these plants are exotic (we are from the UK and many of

    Our family of 4 was joined by a family of 3 and led by Tommy on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We had ridden Segway 3 times before but none were off road. Our usual timid daughter was so excited to get going she volunteered to get on the first unit offered. The off road wheels

    As this was not our first Segway experience we were a bit disappointed in the limited area traveled. Difficulty is moderate at most. Norton was an excellent guide thru the old Botanical gardens with knowledge he readily shared. Also ask him about his wild pig hobby. Gardens

    Aloha! Whenever we see a review less than excellent we always want to learn as much as we can so we may improve our attraction for all future Guests. We are glad you came to see us, but sincerely would like to know how the hundreds acres of partially groomed and some natural gardens were disappointing or how you felt they were limited. It would be good to get more specifics and for your trouble I would love to bring you through the gardens as my guest so you could show us what you experienced. Our gardeners are busy holding back a rain forest everyday. Their efforts to work the hundreds of acres under management are a Herculean effort, but they do an amazing job. The thousands of species are maintained so our guests can come to see the amazing variety of plans that have arrived in Hawaii from around the world as well as the canoe plants brought by the earliest Hawaiians and the indigenous and endemic species that we share with our guest through signage on hundreds of plants and growing. Those signs also share through our self-guided audio garden tour specific information about hundreds of specific plants in the gardens that is also included in our garden admission. I also didn't see in your review any mention of the pristine Kamaee Waterfall overlook where we often take Segway Guests. We would love to have an opportunity to see what you saw so we can improve the Guest experience we offer. I hope you are available to come back, but if not we want to at least offer our satisfaction guarantee to create as good a feeling we can about the time you spent at our garden paradise. Mahalo and A Hui Hou!

    My girlfriend and I had a blast on the 2 hr Segway tour. Our guide, Daisia was great! We toured the botanical gardens, picked, ate and took fresh fruit home and visited several water falls. Lots of fun on a sunny warm day. Highly recommend this fun trip.
