Fantastic, the best way to visit Amboise. Our guide was great and we couldn't believe how easy it was to learn to Segway. Made us smile all the way round town.

I really can't recommend this experience enough. Nicoli (aka Wolverine by the kids) was the perfect example of French cool, calm and collected. We came, we saw and we definitely felt we conquered Amboise in the lightening speed of 45 minutes.

Dad & kids (11 & 9 (but tall so passed the 12+ criteria)) popped in and were very quickly acknowledged as being suitable and able for a tour in a couple of hours time. We came back at 17:00 and after a quick induction of street we were lead through Amboise and all its delights.

Nicoli was installed confidence in all of us and we quickly felt we had done this all our lives. We even got to the point we were filming each other on our gadgets as we moved along.

My daughter said that it just may have been better than Skiing. Either way, as Nicoli put it, you are "Super Human" traveling at a max speed of 20kph(12.5mph) you get a lot more than a tour.

Highly recommend

This was our 4th segway tour with Freemove. We have twice done the 45 minute tour and twice the tour including a wine- tasting in a local Cave. We have recommeded it to friends and taken friends along for an afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. It is a great fun way to see the town (without exerting too much energy!) and the cave wine tasting is very informative. Nicolas is a great guide and excellent instructor. We thoroughly recommend this and will almost certainly be back again!

Along with my husband we took a Segway tour in Amboise last Friday. It was such a fun and thrilling experience. We had never been on Segway before but after a 5 min intro we were good to get underway with our 45 min tour of Amboise. Would highly recommend it, our guide Nicholas was informative and he has a great sense of humour. I would say this is an activity for all ages we are 50+ and If we can master it anyone can. Definitely give it a go you would be in very safe hands.

We took the 45 minute Segway tour of Amboise as were initially a bit worried about 'could we do it' and 'what if it is really hard' to use the Segway.

Worries were soon put aside by Nicolas who gave us clear instructions and built our confidence so we were quickly ready for the off.

The tour was interesting and took us up to the top of Amboise where we could overlook the town and surrounding area. We didn't realise we could get up to such a viewpoint and probably wouldn't have done it on foot as it was very hot - however the Segway made short work of it.

Nicolas was friendly and fun throughout and we had a great time. I note they also have tours in Tours and Blois and would do another Segway tour the next time we are in the Loire without a dobut.

We are now hooked on the Segway.

For anyone thinking they 'can't' do it like I did (I'm rubbish with my balance normally), please give it a go - it is fab. We just wished we had booked the longer tour.
