We booked a two hour tour with Michael. He was friendly and very helpful. He took his time making sure everyone was comfortable on the Segways before heading out. We explored the whole city and Michael narrated the entire time. He is both knowledgeable and fun! Highly recommended!

We took the tour at 6 pm and it was just wonderful! Kilkenny looked beautiful as the sun lowered in the sky. Michael is a great guide, he's passionate about his local history and kept us well entertained with lots of stories and anecdotes. We moved chronologically through the centuries as we toured the city and things really fell into place for us. The segways were surprisingly easy to handle and we had a good opportunity to practice first. The audio headsets meant we could always hear Michael clearly. Highly recommend the Kilkenny Segway Tour. Good to support this local guy running a small business.

I was concerned due to my age (66) that I would not be able to learn how to use the Segway. With Michael’s patience and teaching skills, I learned in about 15 minutes. During the tour Michael kept a keen eye out for our safety. The tour was fantastic we saw all the major attractions. Michael is both knowledgeable and personable

I was skeptical about doing this activity (due to my age) but I am so happy my friend talked me into it. Michael patiently taught us how to use the Segways. We were able to see more of Kilkenny than we would have on foot, and to visit more sights than would have been possible any other way. Micheal kept us safe and gave us a lot of information in an easy to understand manner. This a wonderful activity. Do not miss it!

We took the Segway tour with Michael last week and it was just a perfect way to buzz around Kilkenny and see all the highlights. I have visited Kilkenny many times but saw more on the Segway tour than I'd ever seen - it was a very full 2 hours. Michael was knowledgeable, accommodating and took great care of us. Not only is it a great way to see the sights and learn about the city, it is a very fun way to spend an afternoon with family and friends. I highly recommend this tour. Thanks so much Michael!
