Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike—it's intuitive but nobody is born knowing how to operate it. That's why the tour time includes 35-45 minutes of rider training so you can get comfortable on the Segway before we head out on the route.
The training session provides first-time riders with the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to safely operate the Segway. You'll be guided through a simulated obstacle course of cones, turns, and an emergency stop to ensure a safe, enjoyable experience.
Training includes:Hands-on training with an instructor, introductory video, test ride and skills review, rider courtesy instruction and review of the rules of the road.
Important:You do not have a confirmed reservation until you receive a confirmed e-ticket back from the tour operator. You must present your e-ticket or reservation number to ride this tour.

If you arrive late we will NOT let you join a tour group that has already started training. Safety and complete training for all of our guests is our 1st priority.
