Segway Orange County has been the only Segway-authorized tour location in Orange County since our opening in January, 2005! We conduct 1.5-hour and 2.5-hour guided Segway tours of the Balboa Peninsula from our store in Newport Beach. Enjoy the Balboa Pier, the boardwalk, the beautiful homes, the harbor and the famous "Wedge" while riding an amazing Segway accompanied by one of our local, knowledgeable tour guides.

Preston was so nice, showing the... More

With some of us having used Segways before and others very unstable with their balance, the staff were just so patient, understanding and most importantly, able to help us overcome any challenges so we could enjoy the experience. Hats off to the staff, so much fun!

We were on limited time at Newport Beach and we decided a Segway tour might be fun. No one in our party had ever tried it and we were filled with apprehension until our guide, Preston, stepped in and put everyone's mind at ease. Within minutes, we were actually proficient riders under his expert tutelage. He made us feel comfortable... More

Prentice, our guide, was very attentive to how we were doing and loved sharing stories about the various houses and areas that we saw. We went down areas that I wouldn't have found on my own. My two fourteen year old grandchildren loved it! Of course, they would have liked for the Segways to go above 12mph- but had a... More

My 12 year old and I had a fantastic time with Preston! This was our first time, and the Segways were a lot more fun, faster, and responsive than we expected. For something fun and different I would highly recommend it!

We had such a fun time! We got a groupon for discounted tour and when you are on a budget it made it so much better! Our guide was fun and knew the area well. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you for the great morning. :-)

Family of 4, mom, dad, 12 year old, 14 year old. We had a great time. It took a little getting used to the Segway but after a few minutes we felt comfortable with it. Great tour, interesting commentary from the guide, lots of great sights to see. We loved it!
