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...

Our good local friend booked it for us as a suprise during our visit. Her 75 year old mum loved it, and so did we. Hugh is a fun guide and an excellent teacher who makes it easy to overcome the initial trepidation and jump right in to having fun. A great outing in Nelson.

We just had a segway ride in Monaco and it was so much fun!!!! I was a little apprehensive at first but Hugh was very patient and supportive. I soon got the hang of it and we went on our way. Hugh did not rush us, rather we set the pace and he was a brilliant teacher! I would definetley... More

We were given a Nelson Segway tour as a Christmas gift from my parents. The four of us (mum, dad and my partner) had a fantastic time with lots of laughs. Really easy to get the hang of and a fantastic way to have a look around the city. Would thoroughly recommend it for something a bit different.

I enjoyed my two hour tour enormously. I grew up in Nelson region but don't know the city too well, so I took the 2 hour heritage tour. The segway was very easy to learn (less than a minute) and it was sooooo much fun to ride on. If you get a chance - do this!
