What a great day - learned a ton and had fun too. We were with our two grandsons and the tour guides did an excellent job of making the tour appropriate for their age and interests.

Segways are just plain fun! We enjoyed our guide CiCi who was friendly and informative as well as constantly keeping us safe.

It was a little difficult to get in and out of the carriage but our driver was experienced and there was no problem.

The experience was very informative and relaxing to go at your own pace.

It was easy to follow and the presentation was interesting.
