Great fun once you master the Segway. You need a little balancing, ability to go front & back, and you need to know your left from your right. Even if you live in the area you can still learn a few new facts.

My memory is the minimum age was either 15 or 16, but even more critical was a minimum weight of 100 lbs. as that is the minimum required for the Segway’s gyro system to sense the individual and then balance the Segway.

Anyone ever do the Magical History Tour by Liverpool Productions? I am planning on going in 2008. There seems to be a lot of shorter tours but I want as much about the Beatles as can get :-). Have you heard of any other tours that last this long or this elaborate? Thank you
