    • Expand/Collapse How strenuous is the Segway tour? Are they difficult to ride?

      We’ve found that our guests pick up on how to ride a Segway within the first 10 minutes, but we like to take 20-30 minutes to explain the machines, demonstrate the best riding techniques, and then allow time to practice before heading out to see the sites. We like to ensure that every guest feels 100% confident before beginning the tour. While riding a Segway is fairly leisurely, you will be on your feet for the duration of the tour.
