We coaxed our friends to do this tour because we did a segway tour once before and really enjoyed it. It is a fun way to see the town. Even my friend who was very reluctant to do this said about half way through, " I'm starting to like this!" Our tour guide was great too.

Landed in Seattle on the Monday afternoon and by that night we were on the Segways. There was only myself and my husband so we really got the most out of the segways. Shannon was brilliant and gave us some good ideas on where to go and what to see. We had used segways previously so it was great not going 'turtle' slow. Definitely would recommend the 2 hour 'ride'. Really enjoyed the experience

Ever since our segway tour of Tampa, we have tried to segway wherever we can on our travels. Seattle by Segway was within walking distance of our hotel, and while it is in a small little office in an interesting part of town, its almost a straight shot across the street from the waterfront. With a quick refresher, we were on our way around town and my teenage boys had plenty of opportunity to do circles and spins on the waterfront. They even tried an outdoor game of ping pong on their segways! We would definitely do this again!

No question about it: Riding a segway is a lot of fun and should be enjoyed by everyone. Our experience with the actual activity was great! However, our experience with the supplied guide was HORRIBLE!

If first impressions are lasting impressions, then this guy fits it to a tee. He continually referenced drinking alcohol as well as his smoking pot hobby and hinted that occasionally he is high/drunk prior to taking a group of people on a tour of Seattle. He told the group crude jokes and actually talked about past clients....making fun of them. This was in mixed company which also included a couple of young kids.

What a sorry excuse for a tour guide. Even their equipment malfunctioned during the ride.

Recommend a segway tour? YES
Recommend this company? Absolutely NOT

This tour guide is no longer with our company stemming this incident. This behavior is not acceptable nor tolerated by our company. Sorry you had to experience this terrible snapshot but rest assured it is taken care of.

We try to take Segway tours in all the cities we travel to as you get to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time. This tour was no exception....except the actual segways seemed much faster than previous machines we've used. Loved that!!! Even the members of our tour who had never experienced segways before loved them and within minutes were handling them like pros!! Kimber, our guide was wonderful. Funny and professional. Not as much commentary as other city segway tours but that suited us just fine. Seattle's scenery spoke for itself. Smart lady!!
