My wife and I had wanted to try a Segway tour for awhile and, wow, why did we wait so long. Josh and Ben were excellent, giving each of our group expert instruction on the use of our Segway (mine was Pinot Noir). We felt totally comfortable when we got out on the road and our safety was of paramount importance to Josh and Ben. Ben took lots of pictures which we are looking forward to seeing. I think we will be doing the Armstrong Redwoods tour in the very near future.

Relaxed, convivial, adventuresome ... the tour and guides were just right! Arriving at the meeting spot, my friend Angela and I were impressed as we observed Jordan and Remy taking a very appropriate amount of time with each guest individually. They each kindly and patiently gave instructions step-by-step on how to comfortably and responsibly ride the segway.

Once we were all feeling competent and mobile, we ventured down the road, single-file, gliding off to our first wine tasting at off-the-beaten path friendly small proprietors in the Russian River Valley area. Our group was small (7) and some of the guests chose to simply enjoy the segways and afternoon - and forego the wine tasting. I wasn't one of them! I enjoyed all three elements of the day as well as our guides, the wineries and the cute little town of Healdsburg thereafter.

All-in-all, a unique and pleasant adventure that we recommend highly.

This was my 4th Segway of Healdsburg tour. My wife Linda and I have done The Russian River tour x2, Dry Creek tour x1 and most recently the Redwood Tour. I can honestly say that each of the tours was as much fun as the others, I have no favourite. As always, each tour starts with a training session, the duration depends on how quickly each rider becomes confident/competent to ride a Segway. The tour guides will not commence the tour until they believe the group are ready to go. We were accompanied on the most recent tour in the Redwoods by my 70 year old mother in law, she is still smiling following the trip, she loved every minute of it. Our tour guides were Josh and Ben, thanks guys for another outstanding trip. Lots of interaction and loads of information about the redwoods and surrounding area. As always the tour guides take loads of pictures which are included in the price of the tour and an e-mail link is sent to you soon after your tour. The guides are also more than happy to take snaps of you with your camera at stopping points on the tour. Having read a few other reviews, I see comments about vocal requests re tips. As a British visitor , I see "tip" containers/reminders on bar tops, coach dashboards and many other locations, tipping is always optional and I would ask "How does a Segway Tour Guide remind guests that tips are appreciated ?" . Keep up the good work and I look forward to being on another tour next year.

Our group of 6 did the Russian River Valley Wine Segway tour with Ben and Corrine and we had a total blast! Some of us had previously done the Boston Segway tour so this was was a cool "open road" alternative to the city type tour. It also afforded us the opportunity to visit less traveled smaller wineries in Healdsburg like the Vizlay Winery run by John Vizlay, which I recommend highly.

Segway of Healdsburg was very accommodating and responsive. They set up a separate tour for our party since the normal tour group for the day was full. They also did a nice job of blending a mix of Groupon and non-Groupons into an overall fair pricing scheme for everyone.

I highly recommend Segway of Healdsburg especially Ben and Corrine. Segways are always a blast to ride, but SoH made it even more enjoyable and memorable. Also love all the digital pics they emailed us after out ride.

My family of three (ages 61, 51, and 13) had a fine experience learning to use the Segway and visiting a couple of wineries. We received the photos by email as promised, and they bring back the laughter and sense of adventure of that day. The only negative was the very vocal requests by our hosts to "tip generously," which was repeated a few times and also written on the receipt and pointed out prior to signing.
