Christchurch Segway Tour - Options to just take in the sights, or do a Post Earthquake Rebuild Tour.

The Tour of our Central Business District is very popular with visitors to Christchurch because they are interested to see how Cantabrians are responding after a disaster and rebuilding their city.

Helmet and full instruction given.

We operate all year round.

What a terrific way to tour Christchurch. First of all Graeme was an excellent instructor and ensured we could all 'glide' our Segway's comfortably before setting off, even for someone who's never been on one before and is slightly nervous. His knowledge of Christchurch, and informed and colourful explanations of the earthquake and rebuilding brought the city to life. The... More

Thanks for your feedback. We did the rebuild Tour with a coffee stop, met the Christchurch Wizard and had lots more with fun along the way, while checking out Christchurch Central's ever-changing streetscape. More

Our group of six friends toured with Graeme today. This was the first day of our vacation in New Zealand. What a great way to start! We learned a lot about Christchurch, the earthquake and reconstruction, and toured Mona Vale gardens which we absolutely loved. This was the first time for five of us to ride a Segway. We appreciated... More

Thank you for your wonderful feedback & lightening quick review! As mentioned we did the "Combo" tour stopping in Cathedral Square to enjoy a coffee. With the main points around our rebuild covered, we headed out to Mona Vale for a look at the grounds, Homestead, Rose Garden and Fernery. It was a really fun Tour, thanks for your company... More

This was an excellent tour to explore the city of Christchurch. Graeme customised the tour to suit out needs, as we were on a time constraint. He pushed the tour 30mins forward so we could get the best experience possible. The training was very well done and he made sure everyone felt comfortable and in control before we took off.... More

Thank you for your feedback. We did the rebuild Tour and the challenge as stated was to properly do the Tour and be back to base by the agreed time as there was a plane to catch. We did the full tour with all highlights including a dance at the "Dance-O-Mat". We even managed a race at the end. See... More

We wanted to do different things all holidays so we cycled to Fox glacier, water taxied in Abel Tasman, kayaked in Milford Sound and Segway'ed in Christchurch. And we are so glad we did! Initially Christchurch looked like a ghost town, but through a different lens we got to see the possibilities. Graeme taught us the basics of the machine... More

We started off the tour with a 30 minute training session on the Segway's where we learnt from graham how to operate the Segway. Graham was an excellent teacher and after the training my son and I felt very safe. We did the combo tour which was an excellent way to see Christchurch. Graham was an excellent tour guide and...

Or any time. Graham was a fantastic guide, not only to the city of Christchurch put also to the driving of the Segways. It is the best way to learn about and travel around a new place. Graham knew such a lot and it was really enjoyable learning about the city from someone who, so obviously, loves the place. Riding... More

My wife, daughter and I did this segway tour while we were in Christchurch last Friday. It was a great way to see parts of central Christchurch which were devastated by the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. Then we headed to Mona Vale, a fascinating garden close to the main parks on the CBD edge. Graham was a great guide and... More

Tremendous fun! Totally worth the money. Local guide with years of experience, very knowledgeable and friendly. Graeme was happy to take just the two of us on a Sunday morning. We had the best of time - a Segway is definitely THE way to see the city.

My husband, 12 year old daughter and myself did the tour of the CBD. None of us had ever used a Segway before and we had never visited Christchurch before. We met Graham in the park where he taught us how to ride the Segways before heading off into the city. Graham is a very clear and patient teacher who... More
