Our Segway Tours (Magic Broomstick Tours) are certainly a "Must do" while in Auckland.We take people sightseeing while riding a Segway Personal Transporter. This attraction is fun and exciting and just a little out of the ordinary. We first teach you the art of riding a Segway on our specially selected training ground,then you're off on a tour or short ride. Gliding to the top of the extinct volcano's, checking out the Military fort's of the 1880's, being gob-smacked by the awesome views of Auckland city and the Hauraki Gulf while experiencing the sheer joy of riding a Segway.

Our Segway Tour with Steve was a unique wondeful experience concerning the riding induction, the tour up Mt Victoria, the history of the place, the stunning views, the profesional guiding and the always safe feeling on these phenomenal riding machines.

Today was my first experience on a Segway and I was pretty scared (I'm truly very uncoordinated!) But Steven (the tour guide) was so patient with me and walked me through my paces at my speed till he was sure I was ready. He was always there with praise, reassurance and only arm length away if needed. His easy going... More

We booked in for the 2 and a half hour tour around Devonport. The tour guide was excellent with really good training before we were allowed on the streets of Devonport! This tour had everything. Segways are such a great way of travelling and with the addition of the tour guides information on the history of Devonport it was an... More

My friend and I were looking fort options to see the sights while in Auckland and an Internet search brought up Magic Broomstick Segway tours. A quick phone call and we were booked in for a 1.5 hour tour the following day. An easy ferry ride from Auckland took us to the cute little place that is Devonport and we... More

My wife & myself were on a coach holiday of New Zealand. We had been wanting to try our hand at Segwaying after seeing it advertised in Australia. The operator was very informative and patient when we were learning. The trip around Devonport was picturesque and she an eye on our journey. The hour long trip has hooked us.

Well...what can we say! What an amazing experience! As neither of us had been on a Segway before we were apprehensive about driving it up mount Victoria. However, as soon as we met Pauline we knew we were in safe hands. She was amazing-so friendly and knowledgable about Devonport and Auckland and was more than happy to answer all of... More

Great experience. Having marveled at these machines from afar for a long time, finally I get the chance to try one. We were a family of four taking the "family fun" package and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not as easy as expected at first, thanks to Pauline's excellent tuition, we soon picked up the technique. Instead of just... More

I was happy to get out of Auckland as there was not much to do and called Broomsticktours for a 2+1/2 hour tour. They said I was the only one but they were happy to see me at 3PM. I had a short but clear training and riding on a Segway feels so natural it's unbelievable. Andreas was my guide... More

I have previously done a segway ride with Pauline before and on my second trip to New Zealand with my parents I HAD to go back for another, this time taking my step dad along. He had the time of his life. In his words it made his day. We did the Mt Victoria tour with Andres (what a gem)... More
