Solo traveller from the UK. I have been on a Segway before, but needed a little refresh to regain confidence. The practice run that was held at the start for each person was a great way to ensure everyone built confidence. I liked the way the tour was carried out, although I was alone, I never felt like that as we were mostly riding in single line due to safety and public. So, groups and couples that came together were not doing their own thing. I thought the tour was well worth the money and the weather was gorgeous too. I loved Dominique and Ryan’s jokes a particularly the ones about Clinton and the advanced Segway trick 🤣 Really good value for money. We started at about 1315 and came back around 1515. I was pretty much exhausted in the end lol - great day out! Only improvement I would suggest (and it’s minor!) is to be aware of the headphones used for radios. I’ve got small ear canals and they weren’t great for me (only held in place by helmet/hair). Overall, thank you so much!

The tour was very good, the guide (Chris) was very informative and the headsets allowed him to provide information throughout the tour. The Segways were fun for a change in transport mode.

James and Chris were an amazing team. It was a very educating tour with more added value information than I could imagine. Perfect organization. Will certainly use their services again.

Wonderful trip! On time, as planned. Very nice and prepared guide. I recommend! ❤️❤️❤️

Tour was amazing, great sights, and our Guide Alicia was awesome.
