We took the Untold Stories Trikke tour. It was great! Excellent guide. We were a little worried about driving/riding the trikke but after a little beginning jitters we caught on.

Thank you for your wonderful review! It was a pleasure to have you both on our tour. If you decide to get your own Segways, be sure to check out our excellent preowned models at about half the price of new. Thanks again!
