This is the number one thing to do in Nelson, and a great way to see parts of the town, full instruction and handy tips. We were a party of mainly seniors and Hugh was a good teacher.

If you wish to see Nelson from a holistic perspective please take the Segway tour with Hugh. We spent two and a half hours seeing miles and miles of Nelson. We would have never gotten the quaint and unique blend that the city has to offer. Hugh has such knowledge as well as a love for his city. Segways are... More

Six of us had a very enjoyable time with Hugh. After a quick lesson, we all managed to feel pretty comfortable on the segways. We had a fun time, exploring the waterfront, the Japanese garden and getting some speed up and doing some slaloms on the rugby field. Highly recommended.

We ( a group of women in our 50s) had a fantastic ,fun time on the Move Nelson Segways. Founders park was a great place to learn and experience the unique segway way of moving. Hugh was a great person to deal with in booking this activity and in teaching and encouraging us on this activity. We felt very safe... More

Four of us (2 couples) had a fun time on the Segways. None of us had ridden them before and my wife was very apprehensive about riding these unusual machines. A few test rides soon settled any concerns and we had a great time. Supervisor was calm and patient and passed on some of the history of Nelson. Highly recommended.

I had never been on a segway before, well except the one on the Wii board, and do not have the best posture, sense of balance and special awareness, so was expecting to fall off several times. I had seen people do it before and end up with all sorts of injuries. The weather not great, rather than cancel the... More

Thank you so much Hugh for spending the morning showing us lots of aspects of our own town that we'd never really taken the time to appreciate. The Segway was easy to learn and you were a patient and very helpful teacher, gently guiding us round obstacles and showing us where to go. It was a totally unique experience. We'd... More

Many thanks Hugh. We really enjoyed the family outing on the segways around Stoke. Lots of fun and quite a different perspective to see things from. The segways are so different to operate, but it is quickly picked up. A really great activity for a group of friends or family as well.

I loved this experience, my boyfriend and I did a Segway tour of the city after we'd been staying there for 3 months and it was excellent fun! It was a bit strange at first getting used to the controls but once you get the hang of it, it's so easy and we were whizzing along getting lots of stares... More

I booked a 45 min tour for Easter Sunday as part of our weekend away in Nelson. It made the weekend! Brilliant! We started from the Founders Park carpark,after a comprehensive (and apprehensive)training/getting used to session, my wife (who is not the most adventurous) took to it instantly, never took the grin off her face and proved to be the...
