Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Our Segway Tours (Magic Broomstick Tours) are certainly a "Must do" while in Auckland.We take people sightseeing while riding a Segway Personal Transporter. This attraction is fun and exciting and just a little out of the ordinary. We first teach you the art of riding a Segway on our specially selected training ground,then you're off on a tour or short ride. Gliding to the top of the extinct volcano's, checking out the Military fort's of the 1880's, being gob-smacked by the awesome views of Auckland city and the Hauraki Gulf while experiencing the sheer joy of riding a Segway.
Useful Information: Lockers / storage, Activities for older children

“Fantastic day - a must if in Auckland”

Found this little gem while browsing back in the uk so booked up! Got the ferry nice an early, registered and was greeted with the happy smiling face of Pauline! We were then persuaded onto the longer tour which we are so happy we did!!!

We had 2 hours out on the segways with full training and fantastic insight to the area from Andreas! The weather, views and information was perfect and the free ice cream was just an added cherry! Highly recommend!!!

“Great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

We had a lot of fun learning how to ride our broomsticks. Personal service and a patient guide.
Once we got to a park area near the beach we had a few minutes to hare around, you can go as fast as you dare! Safe in the knowledge that you can stop... (No you tube accidents here). Great fun for all ages and the hour we did went by very fast, it was enough for us though.
Would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone else, or going back for more.

“Excellent and loads of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

We booked our tour via the internet, directly with Magic Broomstick. Upon our arrival in Auckland we walked over to the Fuller Ferry office, directly on the harbor, and booked passage over to Devonport. MagicBroomstick's office, is very conveniently located right where the Ferry offloads her passengers at the Devonport dock.
Pauline, is the owner, and will be your guide. She is wonderful!! She is very personable, courteous, friendly and listens to your needs. She is a very patient instructor, and my husband and I felt completely in safe hands.
This is the kind of tour that is fun to do with a group or as a couple or solo.
It was a blast! Thank you Pauline for the fun time and forsaking our tour so enjoyable and interesting.

After getting the ferry over from Auckland locating the place was easy just located in side the wharf
You can leave your bag with the operator as it is locked away in the shop. After getting your helmet off you go for instruction which is very good and gives you all the skills you want to ride them. Once you have done a few circuits round cones off you go with the guide. We did the hour long tour which was long enough. Other tours are advaliable to book as well,if you are doing the long tour to the mountain there is yet another weight limit to do check before you book your tour.other than that enjoy yourself as it is quite easy to ride. Toilet and food readily all around the wharf

“An absoute must-do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Having lived in Auckland for 10 years we finally got around to doing a Segway tour with Magic Broomstick and it was absolutely fantastic.
We booked a private tour as there were four of us, ourselves and my parents who are in their seventies, and we were all so impressed with Magic Broomstick. Fantastic customer service, one-on-one instruction with a real emphasis on safety, good value for money (we did a 1hr tour).
Seriously - go and do it - you won't regret it!!
