Highly recommended! I had a great instructor (Dave) - who was a real petrolhead like myself. So having someone who can both instruct you to drive in a very straight forward manner at the same time as offering technical explanations for everything was brilliant. Couldn't recommend it more! We came from Brighton for this and it was well worth the... More

There were 7 in our party, 3 had done Segway before and the rest hadn't. Booked this experience as they seemed to do a little bit of training, some charging round a field on our own and then a woodland trek. The place was easy to book, easy to find and the team on-site very friendly. The facilities were pretty... More

This is an exceptionally well planned off road driving experience. We were instructed in a calm, clear manner and at no time were worried, even though it felt as though we were going to tip over sideways or sink up to our doors in mud. We drove through deep water and over ridges when all we could see was bonnet... More

I just couldn't stop smiling, from the minute we were introduced to our machines to the moment we had to hand them back (boo hoo!). It was brilliant in every way - the staff, the ambience, the environment, even the weather (almost) smiled on us.... Everyone, just everyone, should go and do this! Thank you to our incredibly kind friends... More

My sons fancied doing something fun to bring the half term to an end so we decided on Segway. We arrived and were greeted by a very friendly member of staff who briefed us indoors on the use of the Segway. Outside we were able to go faster and the kids loved it. We were only outside 10 mins when... More

Not knowing what to expect I was a little nervous, however, Amie was so kind & helpful & made me feel relaxed. It was sooo much easier than we thought, and the surroundings were lovely. Definitely something we will be trying again. The sun was shining which was amazing, but I think in the rain would be just as much... More

What a fantastic time was had by eight family members who enjoyed their Christmas present of a Segway experience. A beautiful sunny day helped to make it even more enjoyable in the lovely countryside.

We had an amazing time on our Segway experience despite the weather not being the best (albeit far from the worst February weather). All three of our party were a little apprehensive prior to going (we had been bought this as a gift) as we had never done anything like this before. The tuition was incredibly helpful and put our...

I took my son and a friend for a Segway experience. A traffic jam caused a slight delay but the staff helped us and waited for us to arrive. The two boys loved it so much that we signed up for all 3 of us to go again, as there was an open time slot. Our instructor started off with... More

I am surprised you were expecting the crazy car / blindfold driving to be on the off road course, the Group On deal does state it`s a coned slalom course we either use a flat field or yard area depending on the weather and ground conditions It would be very unsafe to use the reverse steer car on the off...
