New Orleans Segway Experience Tour Reviews

NEW ORLEANS SEGWAY EXPERIENCE TOUR is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 142.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZIIINNGGGG!!! I would recommend this your for any and everyone! Our trip to New Orleans started out rough but this Segway your turned it all around for us! The tour was long and enjoyable. Everything was refreshing and exciting for myself and my friends. This tour introduces us to areas in New Orleans that we visited later during our stay here. My only negative would be the helmet sizes. If you have large hair, be sure to flatten it prior to your tour. One of my friends was refunded her money and couldn't participate in the tour because the Elmer didn't fit on her head. Other than that, this tour is a MUST DO! Brad was great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Orleans Segway Tour Just got back from New Orleans and this was a highlight of our trip. The rain was awful the day we booked and they were so flexible with rescheduling times or giving us a refund. We were able to reschedule and we had 2 hours of fun, laughs, and a great tour of New Orleans. We learned a lot which made our next few days wonderful as we knew where to go and what to do. We were given great recommendation or food and drink and we followed their recommendations. Our guide John was amazing and lots of fun. Great time. Worth the time and money. Never to late to learn how to ride a Segway!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Better Way To Tour The French Quarter My wife and I wanted to tour the French Quarter and thought taking a Segway Tour would be a better option than a bus, bike or foot tour and we were right. We were a little apprehensive about the skill it would take to safely ride a Segway but such worries were short lived given the excellent instruction and time teaching everyone how to operate such safely and effectively. This operation is truly professional and courteous. The segways are in good operational shape and quite comfortable to operate. Our tour guide was informative and courteous. She kept us safe while on the tour. Group sizes were about 7 people per tour. Price was reasonable and we highly recommend the New Orleans Segway Experience Tour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must do in New Orleans! My husband and I had never done a Segway tour and had a fabulous first experience. We signed up online and when he arrived we ended up having a private tour by Johnathan. He was fabulous but I will NEVER remember all the dates and facts he told us. The Segway was super easy to learn how to drive (and stop) and we were on our way after a short video and training. If you have never toured New Orleans, this is the way to do it! We saw everything from Bourbon Street, to Armstrong Park to the Mississippi River and SOOOO much in between. Take my word for it, it is FABULOUS!!!
