We've never been on segways before and were a bit apprehensive. Our guide Steven was great for teaching us how to ride them. He was very knowledgeable of the city and it's history, and his sense of humor made all the facts very entertaining. One of the best ways to see the city!

I was looking for something different for my husband and I to do together during our short trip to Seattle. I came across Seattle by Segway as one of the top 10 things to do in Seattle, and signed up after reading all the great reviews. Both my husband and I had such a fun time with Stephen, our knowledgable... More

My daughter has wanted to try out a Segway for years. We got an amazing deal on Living Social and had a wonderful tour with Stephen. Everything from initial instruction to tour completion was fantastic. Stephen even took his time after the tour to recommend local restaurants. I was a little nervous about getting on a Segway, but quickly became... More

We found Seattle by Segway through Groupon and it was a great deal. Family members had tried Segways before in Washington, DC and near Bodega Bay, California, and said they really had a good time, so we wanted to try it. What a great time! Stephen was our guide, who took the time to make sure we were all properly... More

I am a native and brought a visitor on this tour. Everyone on the tour thoroughly seemed to enjoy it, and we had a wonderful guide. It's fun for locals because of the Segways, and fun for tourists who get to cover a lot of ground quickly. The age spread of our trip was probably 16 - 60 and everyone... More

Great tour guide who coached the technique, and shuttled us thru 5+ miles of hilly Seattle in 90 mins. Tour guide Stephen was full of great tips to see the city on a budget, and made the whole experience awesome. I would definitely do it again,

The tour was great and the tour guide (Stephen) was funny and informative. For newcomers to Seattle, I recommend this tour at the beginning of your Seattle visit - then you can go back and spend more time at sites that you saw on the tour. The tour takes you past virtually all of the major tourist attractions - Space... More

It was our first time using a Segway, needless to say we all want one now! What fun machines - such a pleasure to ride. They really are suitable for all people, young and old. Stephen, our guide was brilliant, very knowledgable and personable. He was very helpful in encouraging my daughter who was very nervous about riding; she was... More

I went on this tour somewhat begrudgingly, as our tour was purchased by a friend as a surprise. My spouse and I are both locals, and we had avoided similar tours on vacation in other cities. It was surprisingly fun to ride the segway, and very easy to learn. I laughed more than I would have thought! The sights we... More

I hate sight-seeing. I was here purely for the adrenalin and experience. Riding this tech-contraption with multiple gyros and enough processing power to do your taxes was sheer pleasure. It was made even better by the excellent customer service and friendly staff. The tour was a bonus. Highly recommended to everyone with a few hours to spare in Seattle! Upon... More
