Well the previous reviews speak for themselves. We've been on segway experiences before but this was exactly what we'd wanted before and not got. The instruction was excellent but didn't go on for too long. I felt safe at all times but actually got to get a bit of speed up! This was a birthday present, 2 of us had... More

Myself and my partner have always wanted to ride on a Segway, and after seeing that you could do so locally, booked up immediately. The weather and location were both excellent, combined with the superb Instructors Matt, Josh, Edward and not forgetting Jane the boss made the whole experience totally unforgettable. We laughed and had so much fun in one... More

As good as everyone else here has said. It isn't difficult to get to grips with and the guides are friendly and helpful. Go before it becomes too well known about and ends up fully booked.

When we turned up yesterday, we were 3 over 50's with 3 under 14's and we had a brilliant time, so this is definitely an activity for all age groups.

I have just finished a trip around the parks with Martin and David who were great instructors. We went for the adventure tour which took us off through the woods, up hills, down long runs of steps etc. We had a great time, my 16 year old son who is a skateboarder couldn't stop smiling all the way round -...

We went as a mixed group, no one had tried this before- Martin and David were fantastic guides/instructors... Patient & clear! Within minutes we were whizzing around as though we were attached to the segways on a regular basis (although we weren't up to tackling the jumps & stairs haha!).

This was a brilliant activety for 4 in a bed. We had great fun and the instructors were the best we could have wished for. It's a pitty Segways are not allowed on the road or we would get them for our B&B in Torquay.
