Segway Tours FAQs
The Segway Human Transporter is the first of its kind – a self-balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do. Segways are easy to use and operate and usually takes new riders 10 minutes of training to learn. The two-wheeled Segway sports high-tech gyroscopes that monitor your balance 100 times a second and automatically respond to your body’s movements. To move forward, the rider simply leans forward. To stop or move backwards, the rider leans back slightly. The rider glides smoothly as the Segway senses where you want to go. We provide riders the i2 Segway with Lean Steer Segway Model

Riders are trained on safe Segway operation and emergency stops. Training includes a 10 minute safety video. Riders are required to wear helmets.
The Segway has a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour. Some tours operate at slower more pedestrian friendly speeds. with Lion (Lithium Ion) batteries a rider can average about 24 miles between battery charges. A fully charged Lion ( Lithium Ion) battery will last with constant riding for approximately 6 hours.
Riding times vary with hills, rider weight and speed. Segway has key settings that limit the top speed. Most tours will start at a lower training / turtle speed setting. Each tour location determines the appropriate top speed for its local route and conditions. With many routes through crowded streets and city centers speed is reduced for a relaxed cruise and safety.
