A perfect way to see Waikiki! Bought the 4 day Pass and was able to use it on 4 days of our choice over a 7 day period. Able to do each of the Lines as many times as you wish. Recommend doing the full loop first to see what’s available then decide where you want to go back to. Very helpful staff when you initially board and also the drivers.

Great experiences. We rode two of the three lines (red and green) and really enjoyed the red line. Potter was entertaining and informative. We hopped off andspent time at the art museum (wonderful selection of the world's greatest artists) and the botanical gardens. Good job!

This was one of the best things on our trip. It's so much better than renting a car. Our drivers were great tour guides. This is something that you need to do at the start of your trip so you know where to go and what to do later in your vacation.

This is the best. 4 trolley lines to take you different places in Waikiki and up the coastline. Try o sit on the right side for beautiful views. Take the green line to Diamond Head and return on the Blue line. It is one of the best things we did.

Maggie was pretty awesome and knowledgeable. and the sites were sweet
