Segway beginners and experts alike will enjoy this Honolulu culture tour. At the beginning of your tour, you'll undergo a brief training session to familiarize yourself with the Segway. This remarkable invention is a self-balancing vehicle controlled by leaning. Following the training session, you'll make your way along Oahu's waterfront to the first stop on the tour, Aloha Tower, a 10-story lighthouse that has greeted vessels since 1926. It was the tallest building in the state for 40 years. At Honolulu Harbor, check out the restored coral reef and the fish that now come to feed.
Enter downtown Honolulu through historic Bishop Street, passing the historic transportation buildings from more than a century ago. Glide into colorful Chinatown and Hotel Street to make your way towards Washington Place, which will take you back in time to the 1800s. The three-acre building, which is largely composed of coral stone, was once the official residence of the Hawaiian governor and a major site in the overthrow of the Hawaii Kingdom back in 1893. Enter the grounds of Iolani Palace, home to the only palace on American soil, and view the centuries-old banyan trees on the Palace grounds. You'll see Iolani Barracks, the King Kamehameha Statue, and the historic Kawaiahao Church. Formerly the national church of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Kawaiahao Church is one of the oldest standing Christian places of worship in the state. Continue gliding beside the little nestle of austere buildings that form the Mission Houses built-in 1820 by Hawaii's first missionaries.
Head back towards the ocean and Kaka'ako Waterfront Park, where you will see the Echo Stone, spectacular cross-island vistas, and the Ehime Maru Memorial, dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in a 2001 crash between the USS Greeneville and Ehime Maru, a Japanese fishery high school training ship. During winter months, there is a chance you may even see a whale.
