What a great time! Chris was so knowledgeable and helped me feel safe and comfortable using the segway. As a first timer, it can be a little bit scary and intimidating, but Chris made me feel so comfortable. During the tour, Chris' information and tidbits about Edmonton were so awesome! I learned more about the city I have grown up... More

I was rather nervous to drive a Segway in the river valley, though I had taken a very brief mini-course in a mall a few years ago. Last summer we decided to try out Segway Tours of Edmonton and we all had a good time. The instructor was top notch, carefully explaining with demonstration the dos and don'ts of driving... More

My sister organized an afternoon event with friends, and our activity was the Segway Tours in Edmonton. The staff did a great job teaching us to use the Segways, making us feel confident and having fun riding the Segways. We loved the atmosphere and outdoor adventure. I definitely recommend Segway Tours to anyone visiting Edmonton who loves nature and scenery.... More

The tour was done efficiently and seeing the river valley on a segway was a novel way to tour. A lot of your attention is focused on the actual mechanics of using the segway. I had always wanted to try one of these and this will be good enough,been there done that! The company is poorly run, we were double... More

We learned about the tour on the news and thought lets try it. We have lived in Edmonton all our lives and have never really toured the river valley. Booking online was easy. We arrived and watched a short video and then was introduced to our segways. Josh was wonderful with his instruction. Once we got the hang of it... More

Our group had the opportunity to become licensed Segway drivers through an easy training program. Each of the 12 people in our group had success in mastering the Segway through the thoughtful teaching and guidance with the staff at Segway Tours Edmonton. I recommend Segway Tours for your family or group. Perhaps a fun social event for your Board of... More

My fiance and I found a deal through Groupon for this company. We took the 60 minute tour. When you first go, you have to watch a safety video. Then the tour guide showed us how to use the segway...and then we were off! I would go again for a longer trip to explore the river valley a little bit... More

We did with the Segway one hour tour offered by River Valley Adventure Co. today and it was a riot. There was a short video to watch on a small TV with bad sound - good thing Segways are pretty intuitive despite the video stick figure taking tons of falls. Then it's about 10 minutes outside learning the basics. After... More

For someone who had not tried a Segway before I really enjoyed it, and highly recommend it. The tour gives locals and visitors alike a nice introduction to Edmonton's river valley park system. The machines are a blast to use, and the people at Segway Tours were great. Go for the full 1 1/2 hrs; one hour is not enough.
