We met our guide Cathy at paradise cafe and in no time we were zipping around the back parking lot with confidence. It was a blast! Cathy is well informed and took us to many spots for photo ops. She pointed out good places to shop & eat and she was right on every one we were able to try... More

Having enjoyed this three years ago my daughter and I wanted to have another go this holiday. Our first booking had to be rescheduled due to the weather and we even given a small discount because of this (which they didn't need to do). As we'd been before the latest trip took in new sights plus as there were only... More

We had the distinct pleasure of meeting Casey the owner and Cathy our tour guide this week. When you meet these individuals you instantly feel a connection. They go out of their way to provide top notch service. Cathy knows everything about the island. Hidden paths, best restaurants, history, the local plants/flowers (stuff I've never heard of). If this is... More

I had never really considered riding a segway. We met the owner, Casey, last year and we reconsidered. We went back to Zegway by the Bay for a second time this year because we had so much fan last year! It was even better! Casey is an experienced rider, which really helps for a first-timer needing to learn. She has... More

Our whole family of 6 (ages 14-50) enjoyed the segway tour of the island. My husband commented that he thought this was his best travel tour experience ever and I would totally agree with him. It was fun riding around on paths, sidewalks, and streets on the island. The information we received along the way was interesting too. Everyone in... More

Cathy did a great job teaching our family to ride the Segway and then showing us the great places on the island... I highly recommend taking this tour.

Our family of 4, two parents and 14 and 12 year old, toured the island during Christmas holidays 2013. Our guide (who I believe was the owner) was a fantastic guide and the radio system worked very well. We have done quite a few Segway tours, and this ranked right up with the best. Thanks for a great tour!!

We've traveled all over the country and search out segway tours wherever we go. This tour was one of our favorites! Great tour guide, great segways, and a beautiful island to explore.

My wife and I took the 2 hour Bean Point tour and had a great time. Never rode a Segway before but as noted by other reviewers the tour guide provides training before you head out. The guide provided narration over walkie talkies throughout the tour. It was an interesting tour made even better by using a Segway. Definitely reccomend... More

Soooo. since OMW is already taken by "on my way", I am starting LMTU which my Dad & Grandfather used to say which actually was "Well, let me tell you" when something was great but that is too many letters so LMTU will still mean "Well, Let Me Tell You" LMTU!!!...
