We did alot during our stay but nothing was better than the Segway tour in the northeast. You start out in pastures then progress to cliffside views before some country roads to another cliff side area. Nick and his team were safe and personable. Once you get the hang of it ask to release the speed governor! Very very exciting.....and the Segway really does all the work.

We did this at the beginning of the holiday, and I'm glad we did as we saw plenty of sights on the way and during the tour itself. Jason picked us up from the hotel and it was an informative journey, full of interesting insights. The segways themselves were great fun, even someone as uncoordinated as me managed to use hem. The area in the north of the island was picture perfect, and we stopped as several coves for pictures, and a play area for seeing what the machines could do! Nick taught me a few tricks. Would strongly recommend this, just wish my dad had joined in too.

Absolutely brilliant! Great crew, great rum and great fun! Only down side is it doesn't last long enough!
After spending the first 10 minutes terrified, suddenly you become an expert and the rest is easy! Even better when the speed is upped from 8mph to 14mph.
Highly recommend for something different.

This is a good alternative activity and would recommend. The segway tour is on the north east side of the island so the terrain is quite rugged and there are some great views of lucy bay and cove bay. You also see some black bellied sheep and cows. The tour lasts around 1hr plus return transportation to your hotel. There is bottled water and a rum punch provided during the tour! The instructors are knowledgable and very friendly and its very easy to learn how to use the segway.

We were collected bang on time from where we were staying, and the drive up to the north coast also allows you to see a some of the island along the way.
I had never used a Segway before, but after just 5 minutes practice, it was very easy. In fact, the machine does all the work for you! It is easy to get a bit carried away though, so don't become over-confident (like I did) and almost fall off. :-)
After a demo from the guides and a short practice session, you head off through the fields and up to the coast. The north coast is very different to the rest of the island, and there will be plenty of opportunities to take photos. The guides are very friendly and helpful and really make an effort to ensure everyone has a good time. You are also given a bottle of water, which was very welcome - and the tour ends with a rum punch, which is a nice touch.
The Segway tour itself lasts about an hour, so depending on where you are staying on the island, you should allocate 2-3 hours all in all.
This is an excellent activity and I would highly recommend it, and the company is very professional and trustworthy. Oh, and Bajans get a discount, which is a great way to encourage locals to try something new too!
