“Gentle Segway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The day was dry and this first try on a real Segway was great fun and as good as I could have possibly hoped. (The only Segway I had ever been on was courtesy of Nintendo via a balance board in my living room. This electronic version proved to have been a very realistic impersonation of the real thing and a good introduction to the balance skill required.)
We had 2 or was it 3 hours and the time flew by. First the initial acclimatisation on the level green. Then some small slopes. Then off on the path to explore the estate as a group. One in our party was a little slow so we did not go as far as our Instructor originally intended. Not to worry on this minor detail, it was a most memorable pleasant experience.

“Everyone Should Try It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

An amazing experience that you'll want to try again and again! Fantastic terrain to get the most out of the machines - and the rider! The knowledgeable guide made even nervous adventurers feel at ease. It was great to find an activity my teenage son didn't mind doing with me!

“Gyroscopic travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I have walked around Lews Castle many times but this was something really out of the ordinary. My Dear Daughter Ashleigh treated me to this experience, never to forget. Together with our Mentor we effortlessly Zoomed around the Castle roads and I enjoyed every single moment. Initial training was very easy and off we went with the minimum of effort. The sensation of speed was quite exhilarating but well within safety requirements. Everyone should try this at least once ! An hour very quickly passes so I advise to savour every moment of this pleasant experience if you get the opportunity. Thanks to Ashleigh and Segway Hebrides.

“Highly recommend giving it a go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We went as part of a hen day with 8 ladies, it was fantastic from start to finish, the training was simple & well instructed we did this in groups of 4 (so two teams) due to there being 5 segways in total including the instructors. After the training session we had a team1 versus team 2 assault course refereed it was brilliant, well coordinated, a great laugh & Worth every penny. You will not be disappointed no midgies nor rain could take away from how great a day it was. The 2 instructors were such good fun the winner even got a box of chocolates at the end - Bonus!! Definitely going again.

“Fantastic First Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Myself and my husband ended our trip to Stornoway with this Segway Tour and can't recomment it enough! It was our first time on segways and what a fun and interesting experience it was. Lews Castle is very impressive and the grouns are stunning. Finlay, the instuctor was great company and made us feel comfortable from start to finish and also impressed us with his knowledge of the grounds. We can't wait to see what it looks like when we return :)
