We so enjoyed learning how to ride a Segway... WHAT FUN! My wife was apprehensive at first, but Walter got her comfortable. We cruised around to quite a few sights, so much better than walking! Thanks!

Walter was great! Very good orientation/training. Being able to practice in the nearby parking garage was especially helpful to newbies. Great way to see the city for the first time. Beautiful area.

I think they are about $60 to $70 pp. It is a little tricky at first, but you get used to it and they let you practice before you go out on the streets. Well worth it - we really enjoyed hearing the history of the city.

This activity is by weight, rather than by age. You must weigh at least 100 lbs. to have the Segway operate correctly.
