Our guide Kat was amazing! At first the Segway seemed a bit daunting but she was a great teacher and it truly did only take a few minutes to get the hang of it. The tour thru Garden of the Gods was beautiful and far more memorable than had we just driven the roads ourselves. Would recommend to anyone!

Our tour guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable about the history of Garden of the God's and all of the rock formations. The weather was awesome which allowed us to see all of the sites. I would definitely recommend the segway tour to locals, new comers, and visitors.

Fantastic tour guide. Super fun on the Segway. What a great way to see the park and learn some history at the same time. Money well spent

So fun! Our tour guide Kevin was knowledgeable about the history and formations in the park.

Well laid out. Interesting artifacts. Exciting building.
