What Is a Segway Tour?
A Segway tour is like a mini-city tour, but with a twist. Instead of hopping on a bus or going on foot, you’ll use an electric self-balancing vehicle to whisk you off around the town. You and your friends or co workers will get your own super-duper two-wheeled vehicle. A guide will stay at the head of your group and guide you safely around the city. They’ll point out landmarks, recommend the best restaurants and give you some fascinating facts about the city.
Are Segway Tours Safe?
Yes, Segway tours are totally safe. They’re like walking tours, only you don’t need to use your feet to get your around! Cool, huh?
You’ll each get a helmet, arm pads and knee pads so if you do find yourself off balance, you won’t graze yourself! Though, this is very unlikely to happen.
What to Wear on a Segway Tour?
A Segway tour is located in the great outdoors, so it’s highly recommended that you dress for the weather! You’ll be elevated at a small height and will need just a small amount of movement to tilt the Segway, so you don’t have to wear your gym clothes. So, you can pretty much wear what you want. However, we advise against high heels!
Is There a Weight Limit for Segway Tours?
Yes. As advised by Segway events, the minimum weight required for someone to ride a Segway is 45kg (7.08 stones). Maximum is 117kg (18.4 stones). You must also be over 134cm tall. This is to ensure your safety and to enable the Segway to move effectively.
How Do Segways Stay Balanced?
The genius mechanisms of the Segway involve balancing sensors, microprocessors and monitors to determine how fast and how far to move. It’s a little bit complicated, but all you’ll need to worry about is tilting your body backwards and forwards to speed up and slow down the Segway.
Where Can You Go on a Segway Tour?
We offer a number of Segway tours in some top UK cities as well as destinations in Europe. You can whizz around Brighton, explore Edinburgh or discover Manchester. If you’re heading abroad, you’ll find Segway tours in some popular locations such as Marbella and Munich.
