2nd time on segway, but Seattle has steaper hills than Chicago. Our guide was very helpful in getting us out of a few spots like pier 57 and narrow congested sidewalks. Once on the open sidewalk, there is nothing like the freedom of a segway. Circling the space needle , almost catching fish at pikes market , putting gum on... More

My teenage daughter and I did the 2 hour Segway tour and had a blast. I was a little uneasy at first getting on the segway but after 2-3 minutes I felt confident and ready to go. We rode to the Space Needle and Pikes Place. We were in a small group of 6. The guide told us a little... More

There were six in our group of strangers and we had a great time learning how to use the Segway (easiest thing ever!) and get to know each other a little. Our guide (I'm awful with names...) was funny, very helpful and easygoing. We learned a few new things about Seattle, even though we live in Kirkland, and had a... More

I live in Seattle and it was amazing. We cruised around Seattle- on alaskan way, seattle science center, pike place market, etc. Segways are so much fun!

We are big fans of the Segway and finding a Segway tour is always at the top of our list when we visit any major city! We love them! This one is very good covering approx. 3.5 miles and hitting a lot of the major sightseeing areas...the Waterfront, Belltown, the Space Needle, Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square. Hayley is...

I've been to Seattle many times, but discovered this was a very unique way to see the downtown area. My son was excited to take the tour this way and we both had a blast on the Segways! We would highly recommend that you take this tour and you'll be amazed at all the attention you get from the people... More

We booked this trip last minute on our last day in Seattle. The office is in a sketchy part of town but when you start the tour you forget about the minor stuff. The Narrator had a dry sense of humor that my son and I enjoyed but you do not get alot of details about Seattle it is just... More

Was a little hesitant to ride a segway at first, but after a little practice and some tips from the tour guide, it was super easy and a lot of fun! Absolutely worth the money. They offer a 1 1/2 hour tour and a 2 hour tour. My advice would be to take the 2 hour tour so that you... More

A unique and fun way to see the City. The Segway is extremely easy to use. Our tour guide cautioned us not to touch (or hit anything). This is key advice. I observed that bumping something with the wheel could result in a loss of balance and potential falling off. My one suggestion would be a one ear head piece,... More

Riding a Segway is probably the most funny way to visit a city like Seattle. The Segway is an incredible machine, so easy to pilot, so natural. As a baby, it took me a year to learn how to walk. It took me only 5 minutes to learn how to ride a segway and it's less tiring than walking :)
