Easy to Learn and Safe for All Ages

  1. One of the biggest advantages of Segway tours is that they are incredibly easy to learn. With a brief training session at the start, even first-time riders can quickly get the hang of balancing and steering. Your guide will ensure everyone is comfortable and confident before setting off.
  2. Safety is our top priority. Our Segways are well maintained with lots of new parts, like tyres, that have just been replaced this year. We also provide helmets for all riders. Plus, our tours are designed to follow paths and routes that are safe for riders of all ages.

Fun and Engaging for Kids

Kids love the novelty of riding a Segway. It’s an exciting and different way to see the sights, keeping them engaged and enthusiastic throughout the tour. Plus, the ease of riding means they can focus on enjoying the scenery rather than worrying about getting tired.
