Hi, I am visiting the area with my 15 y/o daughter visiting family. We are over from UK between 11th & 14th August 2015. We both have no experience of Segways and wonder if this ok after tution. Also with my daughter being 15 does that stop her from visting The Brewery Co if we chose that as our chosen route?
