I booked this for my daughters 21st on recommendation from a friend. 10 of us went from 21 - 76yrs. We went for the 1 hour tour. Absolutely loved it! We all had a brilliant time. Jeff and team were great. Would definately recommend and we all want to go again!

“Fantastic hour, time well spent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

My boyfriend had always fancied a segway ride so I organised a visit to Go-Segway during our holiday to Devon and it was worth every penny. It cost us £20 each for the extended tour which was about an hour.

Segway Tour Trail is available to everyone over 38kg (6 stone) and under 127kg (20 stone), plus riders must be over 135cm (4ft 5") 54" and under 201cm (6ft 7") .

When we arrived at Haldon Gateway, there were lots of facilities on the site, a cafe, toilets, bikes for hire, go ape....just lots to do, if plain walking in lovely countryside wasn't enough.

We were given the appropriate protective clothing and briefed on how the i2 & X2 Personal Transporters worked by qualified instructors before we were let loose on a few trial runs. With an accompanying instructor, we then enjoyed a tour through Haldon Forest with some stunning views. We covered so much distance in what seemed so little time, in a thoroughly enjoyable manner. The experienced instructor pointed out any potential dangers and mentored us throughout the whole ride in an entertaining way. He also kept in touch with his base about our progress as we went along.

The weather was a bit drizzly but it didn't spoil the fun.

We enjoyed it so much that we aim to go again, sadly not with go-segway as we were just holidaying in the area and its too far away to get to for us normally but we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Hope the next place lives up to their high standards!

Not sure why our response has been so late- but a huge thank you for your fantastic comments and really great to have you all on our Segways. It's always good to hear that we are doing a good job. Of course if you are ever down this way....

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

If you are new to Segways then this will be great fun. Last weekend four of us went on the safari. They do three types of tours. Longest one being safari. If you have children with you they may be better of starting on one of the other two tours but if you are adults I think the safari would be best value for money.

Take warn gloves in cooler months. In the really busy summer it may not be so great, having to slow down for all the walkers and cycling.

Take cash to pay, not got a card machine at the moment. I'm sure that will change.

Would definately go again, both they guys running it (Jeff and Phil I think) are good teachers and guides.
