Meet your instructor at the Ferry Ticket Office in the Devonport Ferry Terminal. Sign in, store any bags you want to leave behind and have a helmet fitted. Then it's out to Victoria Wharf for a safety briefing and to either refresh your Segway riding skills or learn from the beginning. Enjoy plenty of time to practice before beginning your tour. Ride around the Devonport Waterfront to enjoy the views and have more training on some gentle inclines and over some rough terrain to improve your confidence on the Segway. Pass by ancient lava flows, the local yacht club, historic taverns, buildings, and beautifully restored Victorian villas as you make your way to Cheltenham Beach. Take in the view of the Hauraki Gulf and the many islands including Rangitoto the oldest volcanic cone in the region. Glide effortlessly up the hills so you can get the spectacular views of Auckland city.
Pauline our guide was excellent. I had never been on a Segway before but with Pauline's expert guidance we were soon whizzing about like pros. If you are ever in Auckland book yourself a tour you won't be disappointed.

I loved the Segway tour on Waiheke Island. Our Intrustor and guide Andrew was very friendly. We had two bags of luggage, which he let us put in his van. He helped me with my helmet and I felt very safe and looked after on the tour. It was such a fun experience, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Tam was an amazing guide, and all the wineries were absolutely beautiful. Even though it's winter it wasn't too cold and the views were still stunning. We took some great photos, found some new favourite wine, tried oyster shots, and learned a lot about wine and Waiheke (but not so much that it was overwhelming, just the right amount of lighthearted storytelling). If you're not looking to take photos of the vines (they're dormant in winter) then winter is a great time to visit and feel like you have the wineries all to yourself, it's a real experience! Thanks again to Tam and Enjoi, we had a great time
