It's not uncommon for a resident to only explore a city's iconic sights when guests come to town or when practicing hypnosis in a mirror leads to amnesia. Rediscover local landmarks with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a 48-hour tour pass from AlohaBus (up to a $49 value). Children ages 3–11 ride for free with a paying adult.
Friendly drivers steer AlohaBus's fleet of double-decker buses through Honolulu's destination-packed streets, chaperoning tourists and intrigued locals to points of interest and allowing riders to disembark or climb aboard at any point. With a 48-hour pass, visitors cruise three routes, enjoying fresh ocean breezes on the open-top bus as a GPS-activated narrative whispers fun facts in five languages, including English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and GPS's native binary.
A jaunt on the historic loop (8:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.) stops at the picturesque Thomas Park, Duke Kahanamoku statue, Iolani Palace, and Governor's Mansion, showcases the energetic financial district, and pauses at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. The Pearl Harbor Express line (9 a.m.–5 p.m.) carries visitors to the Arizona Memorial, USS Missouri, and the Pacific Aviation Museum. Centered on entertainment and dining, the nighttime loop (5:30 p.m.–10 p.m.) spins travelers past a variety of shopping and dining locations as vibrant and exciting as a piñata's family reunion.

Though AlohaBus occasionally offers online discounts, this Groupon still represents the best value.
Friendly drivers steer AlohaBus's fleet of double-decker buses through Honolulu streets, chaperoning tourists and intrigued locals to scenic and historic locations and allowing riders to disembark or climb aboard at any point. Vehicles arrive every 30–45 minutes at each stop, and riders can enjoy fresh ocean breezes from the open-top vehicles. The buses make eight continuous loops from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., including the daytime historic loop that explores Diamondhead, Waikiki, the Pearl Harbor express loop, and the nighttime loop that meanders through shopping and dining destinations. Complimentary earbuds play music and a GPS-activated narrative whispers fun facts in five languages, including English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and GPS's native binary. Guests can hop off at stops to get an up-close look at areas of interest or to refill the bus's gas tank with coconut milk.

“Had a great time and the hostess was wonderful. As a local, wouldn't normally ride the bus but had relatives in town and wanted to give them something different.”
“My family and I had a really good time. The driver and the guide at the top of the bus were very nice and informative.”
