This will be my second review of Segway, Isle of Man.

I had to entertain some corporate visitors round an island tour on Friday (28th March), So giving it some serious thought for something different, decided it would be ace to take them out on an outdoor Segway Tour. I'd done it before myself and loved it, so why not?

My visitors were from South Africa, Swaziland & Colombia and had never done Segway before - so were all a bit nervous, but Jason & his team put them right at ease. Simple instructions - easily delivered and everyone understood :) bonus. After the quick briefing in the training room it was outside for the practical. Everyone picked it up straight away and they were off!

2 of the group couldn't take part unfortunately due to their own health issues, but sat drinking hot chocolate, tea and cakes with me & there was certainly no shortage.

Everyone really enjoyed their tour of South Barrule which was split into 2 sections, with a quick stop in between and due to confidence, the speeds were adjusted so they could all go a bit faster.

They only spent 2 days on the island (1 of which was in the office) and they all left for their flight after their Segway tour buzzing from how much fun they had and told Jason he must get himself to Cape Town as there is nobody doing it (Gap in the Market :) )

So - if you have corporate guests (or any visitor for that matter) that you want to entertain and they are up for something a little bit different, give Jason and the team at Segway, Isle of Man a call - they were:

Very Professional
Very Patient
Very understanding
Great hosts
Gave clear and precise instructions

An all round professional outfit that I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending time and time again.

Thanks,
Dave

Did the plantation trip and a god laugh was had. The instructional given before was good and they make sure your competent before they take you into the plantation. The speed is limited and you do two laps with the second being slightly quicker than the first. Refreshments are provided afterwards free and are included in the price. Would leave it a while before doing it again but would recommend it if you haven't tried it yet. Is ideal for a different present

I was quite petrified when I stood on the Segway but with the absolute brilliant patience and guidance of Jason, I had a truly wonderful time out in the plantation. Jason was fantastic. He talked through the rules and regs simply, no jargon, so the boys completely understood. There were no frightening words, but only words of encouragement, and was extremely at one with the lads. Very calming, and to the point.

A good first taste of the Segway experience. I think off road, on the plantation, without as much speed restrictions would better though.

Yet again, thanks to Jason for making my 9year olds birthday. The boys were so much looking forward to the Segway experiance for weeks and they were not dissapointed. Jason was fantastic. He talked through the rules and regs simply, no jargon, so the boys completely understood. There were no frightening words, but only words of encouragement, and was extremely at one with the lads. Very calming, and to the point. The boys set of, jubious, but within seconds completely had the hang of it and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experiance on the promenade.
The only issue I have now is that they are hooked, and are desperately saving for another go!!!
Thanks again Jason, you made is birthday, and I am sure we will all meet up again VERY soon.
