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.

Great fun whizzing around devonport

Had a fun afternoon on a chilled Sunday zooming around on segways. Went up to north head and all over the island. Really good fun. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

My wife and I came to see Pauline around four years ago and tried the 'Taste of Segway' tour around Devonport and loved it! Today we came back to her for the big 2.5 hour tour around Devonport and up North Head. I am so glad that we booked the longest tour on offer because riding a Segway really is... More

My family just enjoyed 10 days in New Zealand, and Magic Broomstick tours was a great way to kick off our first day! My 12 year old son, 21 year old nephew, and myself hopped the ferry to beautiful Devonport thanks to a recommendation from our Sofitel concierge Kris. Pauline was so kind and accomodating, actually coming back to the... More

Thanks for you review, It was a pleasure to come back and honour Kris's recommendation. It certainly left me smiling just to read how you enjoyed the Segway hotdogging. I remember your son ending up with a muddy derriere :) Best regards Pauline More

Having been once before in 2013, Pauline was not only accommodating in squeezing in a quickie for me and my business partner for a 2 hour trip on an indifferent Sunday morning but remembered me from some 3 years later. Not a bad feat given the thousands that must pass through the doors. Must be the sheer ugliness! Anyway, we... More

What a great way to see the highlights of Devonport. It is usually a great place to visit, but getting off the main road, into the suburbs and up the mountain usually requires a car. Getting into Devonport in any other way than a ferry is not advised, which is why the Segway tour is a great solution to sight... More

First time on a Segway. Delightful way to see the lovely town of Devonport. Guide Pauline was very knowledgable about the local area and pointed out all the history and sites. The view from the top of the hill was fantastic, and riding the Segway was easy even for a beginner. The 2 hour tour was $150 and was well... More

We had a great trip out on the segways with Pauline, who was a fantastic guide. Saw lots of parts of Devonport that we wouldn't have otherwise. We took a half day trip over from Auckland on the ferry and had a nice lunch and mooch around the shops after our segway trip. Our two boys (14,11) loved it.

We toured up to Mount Victoria with Pauline, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It didn’t take long to get up to speed (literally and metaphorically) on the Segways, and in no time we were whizzing along the streets of Devenport. Though Pauline must have taken tourists on this path hundreds, if not thousands, of times, she was friendly, genuine and warm,... More

Wonderful way to see a lot of what Devonport has to offer in a short space of time. Good tutorial beforehand meant we found the segways very easy and fun to use.
