“So much fun!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I always saw Segway tours as something that lazy people not in shape did to tour a city. My original (and more adventurous) tour got canceled due to bad weather, so we were very limited on our options of what to do and the travel agent at our hotel suggested this as an option to see the city. Our guide was Lila and she was awesome! She was very good at showing us the city and told us about the history of all the places we visited and she made it fun! We even had a stop to play disk golf (which I am a big fan of doing in the US). We went up hills and down and by the lake and all over this beautiful city. What I like the best about Lila was how excited she got about all he places we went, as if she was a tourist herself. Also, she speaks Spanish, which is my native language, so if you're looking for someone to give you a tour in Spanish, Lila, is your girl!

“Had a great time!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We fell into the Segway Tour by accident. We had planned to take a flight over Milford Sound but weather didn't allow it. Our concierge recommended the Segway on Q tour and we were quite happy. Lila did a wonderful job instructing us on the use of the Segway. We had it down after a few minutes. It was cold old, but a great tour through Queenstown. Glad for the bad weather! Thank you Lila!

“Lila was great”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Lila showed us the use of the Segway, and I am 69 and found it easy and loved the ride. Took us for a tour through town and around the gardens. Great.

“Such great fun and very safe!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We booked the 2 hr guided tour on segways and thought it was worth every cent. A rundown on how to operate the segway you are using takes place in a secluded carpark and it is only minutes before you feel confident enough to take off on an adventure. Our guide, Ben, was great, keeping an eye on us as we travelled along the lake front, through the crowds and off into the suburbs - no hill was too steep for us! A segway is easy to maneuver and both my daughter and I felt totally safe and in control. We had a great time and it was an enjoyable way to get around QT on a beautiful day. This activity should be at the top of your "to-do" list while in QT!

Easy to use. Felt safe and comfortable. Instructors spent time to ensure we understood and felt safe.
