We did the 2 hour tour which, as far as value is concerned, is well worth the extra money. Our tour guide, Capt. Christine, was friendly and informative - her film trivia tidbits regarding the city of Boston were especially interesting. My only qualm concerned the route itself: we were told the city had allowed the company to use only... More

After 30 years in Boston I was looking more for an excuse to ride a Segway than a tour of the city. We cut through downtown just after rush and it was fun to see the expressions on people's faces. Since we 3 were the only ones on our tour, Matt customized it for our interests - just going on... More

We had done this once before (in Spain) so knew roughly what to expect, although this time there was more on road driving and less hills. These things are easy to use and great fun. All 3 in our party, especially our 18 year old son, thoroughly enjoyed the hour+ tour which took you on a mixture of roads and... More

I've been to Boston before and love seeing even more whenever I get the chance to visit. Boston By Segway is a great way to see it. This was my first time on a Segway and I had a little trouble with downward slopes but due to the patience of Captain Phil I soon got the hang of it and... More

The Segway tour is a different way to have a fun experience in Boston. I live in the area but saw things from a totally different perspective which is not as likely to happen when you're walking to destinations. Riding the Segway allows you to cover more territory in a shorter period of time. The downside is traffic. We went... More

Your company was recommended to us by a friend. He said it was outstanding tour. He was a 110 percent correct. Our group had an great time, but what made it especially enjoyable was our captain...Captain BOB. He was OUTSTANDING! Capt. Rich JB

We got POURED on!!!! Our guide was kind enough to take us to a CVS to get ponchos, but my biggest criticism was that the rain was in the forecast. They offer ponchos for sale if it is raining, and for only $1. I would have liked if they would have thought of packing some for our group. we all... More

We were reluctant because the weather forecast was 80% rain. They do this rain or shine and if you don't do the run you lose your money. Only downer of the trip. That being said I am glad that we were forced to ride rain or shine. The staff were very encouraging and nice. Capt. Matt was great and very... More

In 2009 we did this tour with some of my side of the family. Saturday we did the tour again with my wife's side of the family. Both times were just fantastic, but Boston by Segway is stepping up their game. First off they moved to a new location since my last visit. Better for training, better for teaching you... More

Caption Max was awesome! He was very fun and made jokes along the way. The walkie-talkies were a great way to communicate while on the segways. Max was very knowledgable about all the sites, restaurants, and attractions in Boston. He always stopped and helped when something was wrong. he also made sure we were very safe. Excellent tour, excellent tour... More
