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. « less

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

We had a lot of fun learning how to ride our broomsticks. Personal service and a patient guide. Once we got to a park area near the beach we had a few minutes to hare around, you can go as fast as you dare! Safe in the knowledge that you can stop... (No you tube accidents here). Great fun for... More

We booked our tour via the internet, directly with Magic Broomstick. Upon our arrival in Auckland we walked over to the Fuller Ferry office, directly on the harbor, and booked passage over to Devonport. MagicBroomstick's office, is very conveniently located right where the Ferry offloads her passengers at the Devonport dock. Pauline, is the owner, and will be your guide.... More

After getting your helmet off you go for instruction which is very good and gives you all the skills you want to ride them. Once you... More

Having lived in Auckland for 10 years we finally got around to doing a Segway tour with Magic Broomstick and it was absolutely fantastic. We booked a private tour as there were four of us, ourselves and my parents who are in their seventies, and we were all so impressed with Magic Broomstick. Fantastic customer service, one-on-one instruction with a... More

I have gone on 3 Magic broomsticks tours over the last few years bringing various exchange students etc to give them a truly unforgettable Auckland/NZ experience. Pauline puts on such personal tours making everybody feel so welcome and adjusts the ride to your level of comfort. Would highly recomend and look forward to coming back again!
