Owner description: Segway Edmonton's tour of the Edmonton River Valley is the first of it's kind.We employ a very thorough training program for riders of all experience levels. Upon arrival to Louise Mckinney park, you will watch a safety video about the operation of the Segway. We will then conduct a training session to cover all the skills required to safely operate a Segway.Once this is completed, we will depart and take an hour and a half tour through the River Valley with short stops to talk about the River Valley and the Segways. There will be a couple points where we will show you the top speed of the Segway in a safe, controlled environment.

“Awesome river valley fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We brought my husband's cousin from Japan (who did not speak much English) to show her Edmonton's beautiful river valley. Despite the language barrier - Chris gave us a fantastic tour on the easy to master Segways (even both my teenage kids did great!) and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Edmonton or who want to try out the supercool Segways to view something in our backyard! Well worth the money!

“I want to do it again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Four of us went out today with Jay as our instructor. She was patient and anticipated all the challenges we would have. We had an excellent time. The segway driving was much easier than we anticipated, and it was great fun. We all want to come back again, hopefully on our next visit to Edmonton.

“River Valley Adventure - Segway Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

My husband and I live in Edmonton and decided to try a new adventure for a Saturday morning - take a segway tour. We rode our bikes to Louise McKinley Park and then proceeded to the River Valley Adventure building to take the training - Chris made us repeat things until he felt we were very comfortable with the machines and their capabilities. With not a cloud in the sky, the river valley proudly displayed her greenery and flowers and we "segwayed" to places that showcased our beautiful city. We had some history lessons along the way as well, thrown in for free. The cappucinos & peanut butter granola bars from the coffee shop would have been worth the trip as I am sure many of the runners and bicycle enthusiasts who use the wonderful trails in that area must already know. This is a little nugget in the middle of a busy city that is definitely worth your time and money!

What a great way to explore Edmonton. My guide was excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable. He was very thorough in providing instructions, and we had a wonderful morning riding the trails. We had a lot of fun on this unique adventure.
I would highly recommend it!

“Combine a little adventure with a lot of beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Our family of eight (two parents in their fifties and assorted kids from 19 to 29) had a wonderful November afternoon touring the beautiful North Saskatchewan River trails on segways. The training was extensive and I recommend a 45 min tour if it is your first time, in order to get properly trained and still have enough time to do a tour. Personally, I was glad to have the thorough training although it was super easy and quite intuitive to learn to ride them. Some of our crew would have liked to take off and make a real adventure of it but our guide kept us in line and set a pleasant and safe pace. A smaller more experienced group might have been able to let out the line a little more. Edmonton has a real treasure in the parks it has established along this river and this was really a fun way to experience it. The trainers and guide were personable and professional. It was a great experience.
