Took 12 yr old grandson. He fell off in first 10 minutes and lost his confidence. Guide was very patient with him and very helpful, as we held up the group by going slow. Totally recommend I loved it. I would do it again for sure.

Cannot recommend this enough! We did the night time tour and it was incredible! So much fun. Bit scary at first for first time riders, but had an absolute ball

Was a great way to get around the city and see things you normally wouldn't. Loved it!

We had such a fun day exploring our city by Segway. We would recommend this tour.

Fun and safe way to see interesting focal points of the city.
