My boyfriend and I were in the Boston area and heard great things about the Segway tour. The Segways were a bit intimidating at first, but the instructors helped us to feel confident and safe. Captain Sean lead our group and gave us an amazing experience! He was very knowledgable about the city's history, and he took wonderful photos. I... More

Our two hour tour of the city flew by it was just such great fun and an efficient way to see so much. We were a family of 4 and all a bit worried about mastering a Segway but after 15 mins video and tuition we were off and all of us found it so easy. We had our own... More

This was my 3rd time in Boston, 2nd time with oldest son (14) & 1st time with my wife. I didn't want to take the usual tourist bus tour, like I did the last 2 years or walk 20 miles around the city… 2 years ago saw the Segway tour but waited until my son was 14th (minimum age) to... More

This was our first trip to Boston, and the first time on Segways. Our Boston by Segway experience was at the upper end of our price range, but it would have been worth twice the cost. Safety Stan was funny, informative, and, well, safe. We were well cared for and entertained. We debated between the 1-hr tour and the 2-hr... More

I took my best friend on the 2 hour tour as a birthday present and we both had a great time. We are both local but still saw areas of the city that we had never seen before and we learned some things about Boston. For a visitor to Boston, this tour provides a great overview of the city.

Boston has so much to see. This is a great way to get on overview of the city. Entertaining, exciting, and educational. The segways are easy to maneuver, and just down right fun. I would not recommended for young children or those that have difficulty with balance. If you can stand and lean, you're all good. I recommend the 2... More

What a fun way to see Boston! I was a bit nervous at first, but got the hang of it after about 10 minutes. We got to see many of the sites and our tour guide Christine filled in the details on what we were seeing. Definitely recommend if you want an alternative to the standard tour options.

Thanks Captain Bill for a brilliant (if somewhat scary at times!) journey round Boston. All five in our group were novices and despite one-to-one training and a confident pat on the back from our trainer, left for the busy streets of Boston with more than a little trepidation! But it's amazing how quickly you relax and really start to enjoy... More
