When it comes to Oahu Tours, the Waikiki Trolley is the way to see the sights of Waikiki. With its exciting “hop-on hop-off” feature, you can customize your own touring experience. Whether you'd prefer to wind through historic Honolulu, take in the scenic eastern coastline or shop 'til you drop in Ala Moana Center, this trolley has a route for you!

Choose from three popular Oahu Tours lines: see historic Honolulu on the Historic Honolulu Sightseeing Tour (Red Line); take a trip through Oahu’s stunning eastern coastline on the Scenic Diamond Head Sightseeing Tour (Green Line); or hop aboard for a quick ride to Ala Moana Center on the Ala Moana Shopping Shuttle Line (Pink Line).

Friendly customer service representatives are available at major stops to help you find your way or to give you ideas on what to do. All customer service representatives are fluent in English and Japanese.

The Waikiki Trolley combines the flexibility afforded by a rental car with the informational-value of guided Oahu tours! Once redeemed, your ticket is good for an entire day. The Waikiki Trolley is an excellent way to become oriented to the city at the beginning of your vacation, giving you an idea of which attractions to visit later on.

Comments about Smart Destinations Waikiki Hop On/Hop Off Trolley:

We used the trolley both for seeing some of Honolulu and as transportation to some of the sites. It was less convenient as transportation due to limited pick up sites and waits. It worked well, though, as a means of seeing some of the city. We had experiences with a wonderful woman at the main station who helped us figure out which line to take and an experience with a rude attendant at one of the other stations who didn't seem to want to be bothered with tourists and their questions.

Wonderful, but not with Go Card
By Vlad Verified Reviewer from Florida on
Pros:
Sightseeing, Trolley, Transportation, Getting around, Wonderful
Cons:
Only 1 pass per card,
Best Uses:
Sightseeing, Seeing Honolulu, Visiting other attraction, Getting around,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Waikiki Hop On/Hop Off Trolley:

Waikiki trolley is a great, relaxing, informative, enjoyable way to see parts of Oahu. A big drawback is the Go Card's one pass per card limitation. Note: a similarly priced, competing Visiticket Honolulu Power Pass offers one pass per each day of the duration of the card, which is much better.

Good way to see the city
By Ashley from Torrance, CA on
Pros:
Many options, Informational
Cons:
Tickets are a hassle, Time-consuming
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Waikiki Hop On/Hop Off Trolley:

I assumed we could just hop on the trolley, flash our Go Cards, and get on our way. Not so! We were told by the driver to find the shop at the Galleria and get our tickets there. So we trekked all the way over there only to find a saleslady that didn't speak English and told us to come back tomorrow. So we did, and we finally got our trolley tickets. They were good for two days on any line. We chose the red line and took a historic tour around Honolulu. It was fun but took a while. We also tried out the pink shopping trolley, which was way too overcrowded despite coming every ten minutes. It was nice that we had a stop right in front of our hotel. I wish all lines of the trolley operated all day. Pink is the only one that runs through the evening.
