“A fun way to tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

We took the tour as part of package deal and off season it was only my wife and I which made it even more fun. Never having been on a Segway before didn't matter, the staff took the time to make sure we were comfortable on the machines before hitting the road. Once on the road our guide Dan made sure to check on us often and made sure to share his knowledge of the island and places as we rode around the city. If your in Avalon and want to try out a Segway and have a bit of fun stop by and see the folks at Catalina Segway.

“OK but a bit boring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

I have taken Segway tours in other cities and have always really enjoyed them. This tour, the guide was very informative but the sites were a bit boring. Should have taken us to more sites.

“Family fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Grandma, grandpa, grandson and friend (12, 13) took the 1.5 hour tour. It was not so much about the sights, but riding the segways. A lot of fun and easy. The kids only talked about going back again.

“Truly remarkable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Was so excited when i read there was an Extreme Offroad Segway tour and we were not disappointed. It was just the two of us and the tour was lead by the owner Joe. He gave us a personnel history tour of the island and more importantly led us down some fun trails. I have ridden on a segway multiple times, but this was my first offroad trip. Great views of Avalonas well as saw a number of deer. I highly recommend this tour as it was my highlight of the trip.

“Offroading on a Segway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

This was a bucket list item for us and it did not disappoint. After a few minutes of practice it was super easy and was even more fun than it looks. We drove up past the golf course to the botanical gardens then went off-road heading back towards the beach. The views are incredible, the scent of sage was great and the guide, Skip, was really informative and fun. This is definitely a "must do" while visiting Avalon.
