Blake's Segway Tour
Ranked #1 of 5 Tours in Montgomery
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We were a family of 4, Mom, Dad and two surly teenagers, the latter enduring several days in a car with their parents, horribly deprived of facebook and Grey's Anatomy. We made a quest when the kids were young to get them to all 50 states -- and now years later, Alabama is #48. Did I mention they are now both teenagers? When first visiting a new locale, we often like to do a Gray Line tour or some such to get acclimated. Blake's Segway Tour beat this, hands down! None of us had ever ridden a segway before, but an individual lesson in an uncrowded area from Jeff Blake, the proprietor, had all of us confidently riding like pros in no time. They really are a lot of fun. Jeff is a Montgomery native and it shows -- a history here, an architectural detail there, a hearty "hello" to a fellow Montgomery denizen -- Jeff is masterful in his presentation, informative and entertaining. He showed us where everything is - Riverwalk Stadium, the Civil Rights Memorial, Hank Williams and Rosa Parks, we even (inadvertently) walked in on the Governor making a speech in the Capitol! It was a splendid introduction to Montgomery, a highlight of our trip, and we all forgot we were traveling with teenagers for a couple of hours. A really great time for all. Thanks, Jeff!

Jeff Blake's Segway tour in Montgomery, AL was outstanding! If you have never been on a Segway before, not to worry. Jeff takes time to teach you everything you need to know and more so that you feel completely safe on the machine. Jeff's knowledge on the history of the city was amazing! I learned so much about the civil rights movement as well as a lot of historical data on the buildings inside the downtown area.
Overall, this was an amazing experience and if you find yourself in Montgomery, AL don't make the mistake of missing out on this!

A big thanks to Jeff for introducing us to Montgomery and Segway in an informative and fun filled afternoon. A great ambassador for the Capital of Alabama and Segway is a great way to see it. We were Segway virgins with Geoff breaking us in gently smoothing out the bumps. Highly recommend this tour followed by Pizza and Fat Tyre Amber Ale nearby at Saza serious Italian in the Alley.

Best yet! My wife and I have taken a couple of Segway tours in the past but this was the best one yet. Jeff does a great job, takes you anywhere (within reason) and is very knowledgeable about Montgomery's history from it's formative days to the Biscuits' new baseball stadium.
Looking forward to doing this again when politicians are not 'cluttering the area' (I had to get that in)
I highly recommend it, in fact I encourage everyone to do it. It is truly easier to learn to ride than a bicycle - then you are hooked as I am.
We'll be back!
