Owner description: Our Segway Tours (Magic Broomstick Tours) are certainly a "Must do" while in Auckland.We take people sightseeing while riding a Segway Personal Transporter. This attraction is fun and exciting and just a little out of the ordinary. We first teach you the art of riding a Segway on our specially selected training ground,then you're off on a tour or short ride. Gliding to the top of the extinct volcano's, checking out the Military fort's of the 1880's, being gob-smacked by the awesome views of Auckland city and the Hauraki Gulf while experiencing the sheer joy of riding a Segway.

“The best Segway ride we have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

My husband and I are both seniors, and we love segwaying. It is easy and fun and if it were legal to ride one in NSW, Australia, we would own one. So when Andreas (sp?) took us out yesterday in Auckland, we were really looking forward to it. He was such a great guide, and we had him all to ourselves, which was special. The day was perfect - not too hot, but we were still able to appreciate all the scenery. We did the 2.5 hr tour and enjoyed every second. This was absolutely the best way we could have spent our afternoon. Thanks so much.

“Best ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This review is super old but better late than never hey. This was actually back in September 2010. My friend and i did a 2 hour segway and had the time of our lives. She is beautiful, knowledgeable, and lots of fun. We had told Pauline that we needed to cut it short as we were booked for a skywalk back in Auckland so had to take a certain ferry and she said no problems. As we got back to the terminal on our little machines the ferry started to pull away - we'd missed it. Pauline, amazing amazing, locked everything up and personally drove us back to Auckland. Best customer service. We were happy to just suck it up but she went above and beyond. You wouldnt get that kinda of customer service in Australia unfortunately. Im taking my mum and step dad to NZ in March 2014 and will most definitely be returning for a ride.

“Superb experience and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We were on our honeymoon and decided to take this activity

Pauline was an excellent guide, she took us all around Davenport.
It was the first time for my wife and Pauline have her extensive training and we were able to go up and down slopes and difficult terrain instantly after.

She gave us way more time than we imagined and patiently tool lots of our pictures too.

I would strongly reccomend this activity for anyone going to Davenport

“Must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

We were coerced into doing this by 3 late teen/20s daughters.
Glad we did. What a great experience and super way to see devenport and surroundings.
Pauline is friendly and knowledgable, perhaps even slightly mad, and made the day for us with fun and information as well as an excellent training on the machines.
Great tour up mt Victoria, strongly recommended to all.
