We are regular visitors to antigua so have done most of the trips. When we saw the itinery for the segway tour we just had to give it a go. previous experience of segway was in a muddy field in england as part of a groupon deal. This is way better than that. We were well looked after given safety helment and elbowpads and the necessary safety talk and demonstration.

The customer service was spot on and we were made to feel like valued customers. There was only 2 of us yet we still went out with the 2 instructors. We travelled on minor roads until we got to the woods and then the first beach. Then more tracks and beach and then the climb up into the old fort which is a bit old and unloved but still has 7 cannon.

Then its some refreshments and back to the beach for some free time to segway as you please - very liberating.

Following this its back to the centre and more refreshments.

I guess we had about 1 hour 30 in the saddle as it were which for $65 was great value compared to what we got in England.

My son (15) said that this was one of the highlights of the holiday and I agree even though we did do some other cool stuff

If you havent doen it before give it a go its easy to do and lots of fun. Excellent service by the instructors. Thanks for a great morning out

Booked this trip while staying at Blue Waters, there was 6 of us myself and one other had never done this before, so we were a bit nervous, after a couple of minutes on the practice court it was like we had been doing it for a while. Juliette was great and gave us a running commentary about the island throughout. They provided drinks and wonderful fruit. We went to the beach and up to Fort James, I would recommend this trip it was great fun and good value for the money. Cannot wait for the pictures to be sent to us at no cost which is another bonus.

we booked the Conquerors of the Fort tour for a 10.30 start. Our guides arrived 5 minutes late and started the safety briefing. This was followed by being kiited out with elbow pads and helmets and then on to the segways. there was only 2 of us in the group and we are both experienced segwayers so we were soon out on the road. we were escorted by 2 guides, one leading the way and the other following and trying to give us a running commentary (via a megaphone) most of which we couldn't hear. We travelled to one beach, stopped for a little while to admire the scenery and then back on the segway, back past our start point and on to Fort James where we were given more time to explore on foot. This was then followed by free time on the Segway outside the Fort and then back to base before 12.30. Our 2 and 3/4 hour tour had lasted less than 2 hours and a lot of that time we were not on the segway. We found this tour to be extremely tame in comparison to others we have done and were not impressed witht the short time. on a positive note the guides took photos during the tour which they emailed to us free of charge

Wow is all I can say! What a pleasure booking our tour with Juliette! Prior to speaking to Juliette we weren't to sure about booking this tour.

Juliette provided us with so much good information, not only tour info but also with island info in a friendly, polite and professional way via phone and then follow-up emails. I am not sure if Juliette is an owner, but she really puts her heart and soul into answering questions and concerns about this tour and Antigua!

Because of Juliette's EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE, we are truly looking forward to our Antigua Visit and this Segway Tour next week!

Thank you again Juliette! See you soon! : -)

We did the Conquerors of the Fort tour and it was an absolute blast. After watching an instructional video, our guides got us onto our Segways and taught us everything we needed to know – getting on and off, moving forwards and backwards, turning and stopping. The hardest part was getting on because you have to step straight up without using the handlebars or the Segway will try to move. It takes a little getting used to but everyone caught on quickly. Believe me, if I could do it, anyone can. :-)

Once we were all comfortable, we rode to Runaway Bay for a look at the beautiful beach. Then we moved on to Fort James, an 18th century fort built to protect St John’s Harbor. The views from Fort James were spectacular. We had a little time there to look around and have some water and fruit kabobs. Throughout the tour, one of the guides took pictures which we received by email a week later.

What a fun way to see Antigua – one of the highlights of our trip!
