I had the opportunity to organize a Segway glide for a group of friends while we were attending a conference in Coronado. In spite of needing a time frame outside the "ordinary" tours, Norm was easy to work with and scheduled our tour just as we needed. Because we were a large group, we had two guides (even tho' we...

Enjoyed a beautiful afternoon touring Coronado with my wife and 16yo daughter. Our guide, Jessica, made the day fun, interesting and safe. It was our first experience on a Segway, and it was a blast. I would highly recommend seeing Coronado and its beautiful neighborhoods from this perspective.

Coronado is almost 90% flat, making Segway rides even more fun and safe than other locations. I've never been on a Segway, being of a Certain Age, but the route passes right in front of the bay window in my apartment. The riders are clearly having a great time.

I had never used a Segway before, but I have to say it; learning how to use it was amazing. I booked the Segway of Coronado on February 15 and it was a great experience. Our guide, Barbara, trained us one by one how to use the Segways and in a few minutes, we were all ready to ride. She... More

Note: The poor rating stems from the lack of appropriate communication devices on this tour and therefore, not being able to hear the narration about the various sites.....otherwise, I would rate this as above average. My wife and I have talked about doing a Segway tour for years, but always chickened out. We decided that over our Valentine's getaway to... More

efforts, Owner at Segway of Coronado, responded to this review

Well, As a small business owner who has worked hard for the last ten years to deliver the highest standard of Segway tours available, as reflected by our 5 star rating in TripAdvisor and other travel sites, I was pretty dismayed with your incredibly detailed commentary and 2 star review. In your first paragraph you say “ The poor rating... More

Segway tour was a fun one! BARBARA, our guide, knew her stuff and made the trip really enjoyable. BUT .... not sure I'd book this tour company again for ONE REASON and ONE REASON ONLY. The people at the "tail end" of our touring could NOT HEAR ANYTHING she had to say ... and she knew the Island inside out!... More

My wife and I had never been on Segways before, but always talked about it. It is just as fun as it looks and unbelievably easy to learn - especially with the patient help of our tour guide Barbara. After a few minutes of learning and practicing we were off to tour the entire island. Barbara had a great perspective... More

My husband and I treated our son and daughter-in-law to the Segway tour, which none of us had every experienced before. I thought the price was reasonable for the amount of time we were involved, which was the "Coronado Tour Special", two for $118. Barbara was our tour guide and Segway instructor, who did a fantastic job. She made sure... More

I never rode a segway before and I had a blast. Barbara, our tour guide, was careful to teach everyone how to operate it and made sure we did so safely. We saw some interesting houses and architecture, as well as the bridge, ferry landing area and bike paths. Barbara relayed some interesting history of Coronado. The Segways had backpacks... More
