“FALSE ADVERTISING”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Bought a Living Social for 2 hr guided tour. Office was run by 2 girls, 1 who was ambivalent to the point of being rude. Tour was 1 hour of someone remembering a rehearsed script. At the end of the 1st hour, we were told we were "on our own" for the next hour. Being from out of town, we bought the 2 hour tour because we didn't know where we were going! Also, temperature was 98 degrees and no water bottle was provided, as they offer on their website. Other Segway tours are MUCH more professionally run (would highly recommend Bike and Roll's in DC).

“Great tour and fun ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Riding segways was easy to learn and fun. Tour guide took us off the beaten path and down some side streets. I would do this again and again.

“Segway was fun, but tour was ok!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We went on the 1-hr segzone tour of Annapolis and it was our first time on the Segway. The tour started 20 min late and the tour covered very few historic places. I was hoping that the tour would cover the Maryland state Capitol building, but it was not on the tour.

Beware of the unexpected 'tax' that you are asked to pay when you arrive there. I had lot of back and forth to reserve the date with Segzone, but in the end, we're glad we took the segway ride. The tour ended within 40 min and we were given an option to ride on our own for the rest of the time. This was the fun part for us!

“Nice tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We took the 2 hour tour, the 1st part is the historical tour of Annapolis, and during the 2nd hour they let you take the segways and ride by yourselves. We had never been on a tour where a company would let you take a segway on your own, and we were very pleasantly surprised by it! It was awesome. We were not sure where to go, so we just rode around St. John's college, which is one of the oldest in the US.

Segways are very easy to ride. Before the tour starts they give you a 20-30 minute lesson and practice time.

It its not easy to find parking in that area. It was a busy day and the parking lot by the marina was full, so we parked in the street (residential area) with a 2 hour parking limit.

“Great way to enjoy an hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

My mom and I took my aunt on the Segway 1 hour tour. I had been on the same tour 2 years prior and enjoyed it. We took a 10AM tour. We arrived 15 minutes early, filled out the paperwork, waited for others and we on the Segway just after 10AM. The explanation on using them was great, the tour guide was great and we went to some good nearby Annapolis spots. The tour guide had some good information about the different buildings we looked at and it was so much fun being on the Segway. We were back just around 11AM. We did not get a bottle of water this time, so bring your own (it gets hot)! There are small pockets in the front of the Segway you can put a bottled drink and small personal items in.
