“Off Road Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

I have just finished a trip around the parks with Martin and David who were great instructors. We went for the adventure tour which took us off through the woods, up hills, down long runs of steps etc. We had a great time, my 16 year old son who is a skateboarder couldn't stop smiling all the way round - apart from when he fell off ! Great fun !

“Brilliant fun and great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Just been to Simply Segway today. It was fantastic fun, especially the off road sections. The instructors were all friendly and very helpful. The location in Heaton Park is really good with a mix of pathways and off road paths. All in all this was a brilliant fun experience....lots of laughs at those of us who fell off.
Thanks very much to all of the people at Simply Segway...we would thoroughly recommend it.

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

Just got back from a day out Enjoying the Glide around Heaton park with Simply Segway. We were a group of 12 so split into two smaller groups. I can safely say we've never laughed so much for a long time, it was really good fun. Martin and David were excellent instructors and were really patient. I'd really recommend this as a fun day out for all ages (our ages varied from 14 to 55) for birthdays / christmas pressies / just something really different. Great!

“Simply Segways... superb!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

We went as a mixed group, no one had tried this before- Martin and David were fantastic guides/instructors... Patient & clear! Within minutes we were whizzing around as though we were attached to the segways on a regular basis (although we weren't up to tackling the jumps & stairs haha!). A highly entertaining & fun thing to do with anyone who fancies trying something different. Heaton Park was fab, and there is even a restaurant at the pavilion for lunch or a coffee (sambucas). Thanks so much, we will recommend to others and will definitely return!!

“Simply .......... Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

This was a brilliant activety for 4 in a bed. We had great fun and the instructors were the best we could have wished for. It's a pitty Segways are not allowed on the road or we would get them for our B&B in Torquay.
