“Loved it!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

About a month ago we were downtown and saw a group of people on the Segways. It looked fun so we were happy to be able to book the tour this past weekend. It was amazing!! I've lived here for 28 years and never understood how beautiful downtown was until now. The history of our city is phenomenal. Our tour guide Jim was fun and informative. He knew all kinds of interesting facts and tidbits. We ended staying downtown after the tour just so that we could enjoy some of the sites we had visited. The Segway is FUN. We loved zipping around Columbus on two wheels. The tour is two hours and there is a wonderful break in the middle where we sit by the river and soak in the view. Jim gave excellent instruction and made sure that each of us was comfortable on the Segway before we started the tour. The view of the city was amazing. I had forgotten just how beautiful downtown was and it was cool that many people along the tour path knew Jim. I actually want to do the tour again with some of my family. This is a must do and worth every penny.

“The best way to tour Columbus”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

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!

“O-H-I-O!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

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.

“Great outing & lots of fun!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

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!
