This was our 4th segway tour with Freemove. We have twice done the 45 minute tour and twice the tour including a wine- tasting in a local Cave. We have recommeded it to friends and taken friends along for an afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. It is a great fun way to see the town (without exerting too much energy!) and the cave wine tasting is very informative. Nicolas is a great guide and excellent instructor. We thoroughly recommend this and will almost certainly be back again!

Along with my husband we took a Segway tour in Amboise last Friday. It was such a fun and thrilling experience. We had never been on Segway before but after a 5 min intro we were good to get underway with our 45 min tour of Amboise. Would highly recommend it, our guide Nicholas was informative and he has a great sense of humour. I would say this is an activity for all ages we are 50+ and If we can master it anyone can. Definitely give it a go you would be in very safe hands.

We took the 45 minute Segway tour of Amboise as were initially a bit worried about 'could we do it' and 'what if it is really hard' to use the Segway.

Worries were soon put aside by Nicolas who gave us clear instructions and built our confidence so we were quickly ready for the off.

The tour was interesting and took us up to the top of Amboise where we could overlook the town and surrounding area. We didn't realise we could get up to such a viewpoint and probably wouldn't have done it on foot as it was very hot - however the Segway made short work of it.

Nicolas was friendly and fun throughout and we had a great time. I note they also have tours in Tours and Blois and would do another Segway tour the next time we are in the Loire without a dobut.

We are now hooked on the Segway.

For anyone thinking they 'can't' do it like I did (I'm rubbish with my balance normally), please give it a go - it is fab. We just wished we had booked the longer tour.

Nicolas isn't the girl on the front of the Freemove flyers. It turns out he is a bloke. He's a great guide, his French pronunciation could do with some work though. He has a great sense of humour & is slightly mad. The Segways are superb & fully live up to expectations. The tour around the town shows them of in many varied conditions & is certainly well worth the cost. One warning, a Segway will move up to the top of your " I want one of those list"! Also, an after effect is that you expect to simply lean forwards to achieve forward motion - much like attempting to zoom in on a photo by un-pinching two fingers!
