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

People don't assume our OMG means Oh My Goodness. 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!!!...

This was our first time ever riding segways and my husband and I had a blast. Casey was such a wonderful tour guide. She made sure we both felt comfortable on our segways before we started. I was worried they would be touchy and hard to control but they were not at all. We did the 2 hour tour around... More

Whether you are a first time visitor or a yearly visitor, this tour is a must. Well worth the money! Casey is an entertaining tour guide. We would absolutely do it again! This is a great experience for adults of all ages. Casey does a great job training before you head out on the tour.

We had a great time on the Zegway tour. It was just the right length of time and riding the segway was easy to learn and a lot of fun. Our tour guide was wonderful. We ended up staying for lunch at the cafe where the tour is ran out of.

I had a great time. It wasn't that hard to get the hang of it. I highly recommend this excursion. It was an interesting trip. Casey made it fun and she was watching out for our "little parade." This trip was a Christmas gift from my daughter and son-in-law.
