We had a mid 50's, slightly overcast day( Portland late winter , right?) but no rain which was perfect for our first Portland Segway tour. There were 5 of us, with only myself, having been on a Segway before. After a brief but thorough Segway lesson by Tyler, our guide, we were off.
We cruised throughout SW Portland , up into the PSU Park Blocks, up to the Saturday Market and from there down to the river.
By the time we crossed the river , all riders were totally comfortable on their Segways .We rode down the eastside Esplanade ( let 'er rip!!!) and then crossed back into SW Portland on the Morrison Bridge sidewalk. From the Tom McCall park back down the river and back to our starting point.
The 2 hour tour went by in a blink.Everyone had a great time and we were all ready to go it again.
A huge thanks to Tyler for his patience and great guidance.

I had my dad in town for the weekend and found this tour last minute when looking up the shanghai tours. SO glad we opted for this tour, we all had a blast.

We took the two hour tour that goes over the bridges and couldve gone longer! Theyre super fun and easy to use and a great way to see the city, even for me and I live here in portland.

Our guide was awesome, not too tour-guidey which was nice. Cant wait to go again with our next guests! It will for sure be a staple of entertaining out of town guests.

Our guide, Tyler, was a great instructor and guide. Very calm and relaxing.

I have lived in the Portland area since 1967 and we learned many things about Portland I didn't know, all while on the Segway.

We toured to the park blocks and then up to The Pearl, Yes, all the way to The Pearl. Pedestrians and drivers were very polite to our tour. Our ride along the river on the way back was gorgeous, making our way through the bikes, joggers and walkers.

Tyler had suggestions for us, but let us decide where we wanted to go and how often did we want to stop for tour info.

The Segways are easy to operate and should be easy for all after a short and fun training.

We have actually booked another tour in the summer, requesting the same guide! Thanks Portland by Segway and Tyler. Contact with Shannon in the office before and after was very professional and courteous.

Put it on your "MUST DO" list.

We had such a great time and seeing the sights. Tyler was our guide and he was so cool. We had to reschedule our large group due to weather and they were so accommodating.

Today 6 of us went on a Segway tour in Portland with Tyler. We had fun touring places of interest both downtown and along the waterfront. He was friendly, responsive to questions and flexible to allow us to see sites we were interested in seeing. I would certainly recommend a tour with Portland by Segway and Tyler in particular. What a blast!
