Polynesian Adventure Tours/Gray Line Hawaii announced the launch of its Aloha Bus sightseeing tours onboard seven open-top, red double-decker buses April 7.
“We are excited to launch the Aloha Bus program and offer a new and exciting way to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii,” Colin Murphy, president of Polynesian Adventure Tours/Gray Line Hawaii, said in a statement. “The double-deckers are not just a mode of transportation, they are a visitor activity in themselves. You get to travel in high style, enjoying the sunshine, trade winds and scenic views of Oahu, while seeing the sights and learning about local culture and history.”
The company has spent $3 million on the new buses and will hire 60 employees to work the resulting tour products. The roundtrip activity begins at the Duke Kahanamoku statue in Waikiki and makes its way toward downtown Honolulu and the Chinatown district, enabling passengers to board and disembark at a range of scheduled stops along the way.
Prices begin at $39.99 for a one-day ticket.
