I had never seen the attraction of Segway but I was persuaded by my sister to try it in Nelson. It was fantastic! I got the hang of it really quickly and it just becomes instinctive. The hour just vanished and it was a great way to see the town. Top fun.

My guide was very patient and took time to ensure that I was competent to ride the vehicle before being let loose on the footpaths of Nelson. I was suprised at how easy it was to ride and how stable it was (for someone whose sense of balance is challenged at best it was a relief!). Its a great way... More

My sense of balance is poor but I was very suprised at how easy it was to ride one of these. My guide and tutor was very patient and explained the principles thoroughly and ensured that I was both competent and confident before we took to the streets exploring. I must have looked a complete idiot, grinning from ear to... More

This was the second Segway trip we've done with Move Nelson but this time we took my sister and brother-in-law, who'd never been on a Segway before. They're both hooked! It's so easy to learn and WAY more fun than hiring bikes. We went on the Riverside trip and also had time to have fun with the Segways in the... More

Had an absolute blast. 11 and 14 year old girls and they loved it. Hugh was a fantastic guide and I'd highly recommend it. I'd go again tomorrow but the Capitol expenditure manager won't let me.

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.
