This tour was an absolute blast. Jim, our tour guide, was AWESOME. So informative, so fun, so nice, such a great guy! In teaching us how to use the Segway, he gave very clear instructions and was super-patient with a couple of us nervous Nellies. Once we were comfortable on the Segways, we zoomed about the city and listened to everything Jim knew...which was a lot and which was not boring. :) This was a great way to get up close and personal with the city without getting tired of walking. I highly recommend it!

WoW...didn't know one could leave a "tour" so informed and well entertained! This is a MUST DO in Columbus, OH. What better way to not only see an entire city but also learn some history and take in beautiful sights! Jim--our tour guide, was AMAZING. DUDE...he knows his stuff about Columbus, OH. I might be a little biased being a history geek, but I was engaged the entire time and the best part...uh..BEING ON A SEGWAY!! I highly recommend it. NOTE: where comfortable shoes b/c you'll be standing for at least 2 hrs.

We planned to tour downtown Columbus over Christmas to see the lights & displays. Unfortunately, they were booked so we did the tour Labor Day weekend. We're locals and didn't expect much as we were just looking forward to riding the Segways. Jim was our tour guide and blew us away with his friendly demeanor and knowledge of our town. It was so easy to book our tour (we called 614-222-3005) and to find their office (near the food court in the Convention Center). Having done two other Segway tours (Chicago & Bermuda), we found the rider orientation the best ever. As experienced riders, we not only learned something new, but were amazed at how fast Jim got the newbies up and riding comfortably. Something else the other tours didn't have but certainly should have used, was the "live helmets"; speakers inside the helmet padding that connect to a radio receiver on your belt so that you can hear the tour guide from a distance. The tour covered more ground then expected and covered a lot of sights. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn a little about the history of Columbus, Ohio or just wants to ride around a really cool downtown area on a Segway!

Just came back from the tour around CMH! Great time had my myself and my visiting parents. The segway was easy to learn and we were given ample time to practice. The tour guide was very informative and kept a great eye on everyone. You'll be glad you took this tour. Enjoy!

Had a great time and the city was surprisingly nice and clean. I thought the older people in our group were going to slow us down, not at all. Everyone learned how to ride quickly and easily. Tour guide did a great job.
