Great but got scarey on the hills especially after my Segway ran out of battery charge while going up the hill!

The company should take greater care that the Segways are fully charged before sending groups out! Mine starting vibrating and slowed way dow on my way up a steep hill ! It... read more

The company should take greater care that the Segways are fully charged before sending groups out! Mine starting vibrating and slowed way dow on my way up a steep hill ! It broke my confidence on the Segway and I felt fearful after that! But I did enjoy it very much before that!

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary on the island paradise. She surprised me with a Segway tour. Neither of us had previously segwayed. Our tour guide Chris was awesome. He showed us the ropes on how to trust and maneuver our two wheeled machines. Our tour took us off-roading in the hills above Avalon. It felt intuitive, safe,... More

$68 per each. Started at 9:30 with a 10 minute practice and then we went on with the tour. We were told to stay on the right side of the road and keep 5 feet in between just in case somebody stopped all of a sudden. It is pretty easy. We went to the Casino that does not allow gambling.... More

Two years ago my family and I had a good time on the segway trip so we decided to try again. Unfortunately they only serve Cruise ship passengers on Monday and Tuesday so they said to come back on Wednesday, which we did. Their reservation office was closed but a business partner explained that Wednesday's are slow so they aren't... More

First time being on a Segway. It was easy to do, and the trip was about an hour and a half. We went up in the mountains, gorgeous views, and our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the island. Definently recommend!

The tour wasn't as dangerous as described. My child who was 13 was not permitted to take the tour for "safety" reasons. I think as long as you are physically tall enough with some maturity and respect for the tour it isn't "unsafe" for children who are not yet 14. Tour was great. Would definitely do it again but didn't... More

I celebrated my 70th birthday with a very fun and challenging off-road excursion -- it was very thrilling for both my husband and me.

Took the tour around Avalon. Chris our guide/instructor was fantastic telling us stories of Catalina that only locals would know. He was professional but also made it fun. Once you get the hang of them the Segway are great fun. Would thoroughly recommend it to young and old, just don't run any tourists over!.

We (4 of us) had a great time with our guide. We did the Hogsback (?) tour - and he was very knowledgeable about the island, answering all our questions. Safety first, so he made sure we all knew how to get on, get off, and park your segway. It was fun! and a great way to see the island.... More

I have always wanted to try this and although it does take some getting used to, it is a fun way to travel around an area. I don't think I could do the offloading Segways but around town and with the guide, it was fun. Our guide was Butch, and he is very knowledgeable about Catalina Island and historic things... More
