“It's fun being a nerd!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2010

We came to Queenstown with no intention of jet boating or bungying! Could see no good reason why we should throw ourselves off a perfectly good platform or have our eyes frozen at high speed . . . . But we did go with Kevin from Segway on Q for the two hour Queenstown tour. After being taught how to use the Segway we were off. Thank goodness speed limited at first! Before long we had our confidence and were covering the sights of Queenstown. So much fun . . . Kevin was great and soon had enough confidence to "let us loose" on Queenstown. Great value for money! Will do it again when next in Queenstown. Ingrid & James Leverrier

“Got to see Queenstown from points I would have never got to myself.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

The guide was very welcoming and friendly. I already knew how to ride the Segway so we started out right away. The tour takes you way up into the neighborhoods on the hill and gives you a great view of town. My favorite part was that he let me zoom around the park by myself and meet him on the other side.

“Fun for young and old”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2010

Me, my partner (both 50), and my 13 year old daughter took 3 Segways for a spin after getting some expert tuition from Kevin, the Segway on Q owner. Its just one of those things you have to do - they are marvels of technology and defy gravity! And doesn't take long to master and then enjoy. Kevin collected us from the caravan park and took us to the lake in Queenstown where we spent some time in the car park practicing. Then we headed off for a scenic and fun spin around the perimeter. Kevin met us at the finish point and dropped us off again at the caravan park. Not an extreme sport by any means but still heaps of fun.

“A MUST DO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2010

Like all the reviews for Segway on Q I cannot speak highly enough of the experience - a fantastic 21st century way to see Queenstown. I highly recommend it as a must do when in Queenstown. The Segway is a very intuitive little machine and is easy enough to master...after a practice session with a patient and kind Kevin - the owner of this innovative business. The cost is very reasonable compared to the value you will get out of the experience. It's a lot of fun and created many laughs and memories. Give it a go - you won't regret it!

“Fantastic Fun not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

There are many things you can do in Queenstown but this has to be the most fun and at a reasonable cost. Its a small company so you get the personal attention of Kev the owner, a very patient and friendly guy. We spent 10 minutes learning to control the segways and then over an hour whizzing around the town and on our own through the park. Give it a try and have loads of fun !
