Well the previous reviews speak for themselves. We've been on segway experiences before but this was exactly what we'd wanted before and not got. The instruction was excellent but didn't go on for too long. I felt safe at all times but actually got to get a bit of speed up! This was a birthday present, 2 of us had... More

Myself and my partner have always wanted to ride on a Segway, and after seeing that you could do so locally, booked up immediately. The weather and location were both excellent, combined with the superb Instructors Matt, Josh, Edward and not forgetting Jane the boss made the whole experience totally unforgettable. We laughed and had so much fun in one... More

As good as everyone else here has said. It isn't difficult to get to grips with and the guides are friendly and helpful. Go before it becomes too well known about and ends up fully booked.

When we turned up yesterday, we were 3 over 50's with 3 under 14's and we had a brilliant time, so this is definitely an activity for all age groups. Marin was an excellent instructor who made you feel at ease straightaway. The tour around the parks took us to different terrains, it was a great experience we would love... More

Martin trained us both with a very pleasant manner; and made it simple to understand. Would recommend to anyone wanting a fun time doing something different. Suitable for any age.

I have just finished a trip around the parks with Martin and David who were great instructors. We went for the adventure tour which took us off through the woods, up hills, down long runs of steps etc. We had a great time, my 16 year old son who is a skateboarder couldn't stop smiling all the way round -...

Just got back from a day out Enjoying the Glide around Heaton park with Simply Segway. We were a group of 12 so split into two smaller groups. I can safely say we've never laughed so much for a long time, it was really good fun. Martin and David were excellent instructors and were really patient. I'd really recommend this... More

We went as a mixed group, no one had tried this before- Martin and David were fantastic guides/instructors... Patient & clear! Within minutes we were whizzing around as though we were attached to the segways on a regular basis (although we weren't up to tackling the jumps & stairs haha!). A highly entertaining & fun thing to do with anyone... More

This was a brilliant activety for 4 in a bed. We had great fun and the instructors were the best we could have wished for. It's a pitty Segways are not allowed on the road or we would get them for our B&B in Torquay.
