      Fun for whole family.
      We had a blast. Such a fun hour. When everyone in the family had a great time you know it’s a winner. Kevin was great with his training & sense of humour. I would 100% recommend giving this a go.

      So much fun today for our family with Kevin. He was super patient & a great teacher. Enjoyed the scenic trip around the gardens & especially around the waterfront. If you want to do this activity but don't feel confident then definitely do it, if Kevin can teach me to ride he can teach anyone! Great family activity!!

      Fun time
      Training in car park was great and prepared newbies well. While the ride through the lake front was great, it was a little challenging going through the crowds walking the wharf area. Kevin and his team were friendly and helpful, and made this a fun experience for all.

      Fun times in Queenstown
      We had just arrived in Queenstown at our Hotel and decided to go for a Segway Tour. What a great way to spend an hour! Not only did we have an awesome tour guide (Kevin) but we were the only two in the group, so lots of special attention. After about 10 minutes of training we headed out for our tour. We went through town and rode through the park by the lake. We then went around Queenstown Gardens which was fun because it offered up and down trails and other fun things to navigate. The nice thing about this activity is it can be done quickly. We were gone for about an hour and then walked back to the hotel. So if you have an hour or two to kill go get on a Segway! They have one hour and two hour tours. Next time I’d go for 2 hours, and I’d recommend if you’ve already been on a Segway to take the two hour tour, because you will be able to see more of the city.

      Excellent Service and Experience
      Segway on Q was the best way to see Queenstown. It was an entertaining and unique experience, which was enhanced by our guide who was an excellent teacher and had plenty of knowledge to share on the local area.

      Fantastic way to see Queenstown
      From the moment we walked in the store, our guide was friendly, welcoming and clearly knowledgeable when it comes to Queenstown. After a brief introduction to the segway, we were off on a 10km tour of Queenstown Bay. The ride was very comfortable, pretty easy to use and a much more efficient to cover the town, than on foot. Our guide showed us some points of interest and interesting NZ tidbits along the way which added to the experience. Fantastic views and would recommended 100%!

      13th birthday treat!
      My son has been keen to try segwaying for years and finally he's tall enough. We booked this trip as a birthday treat and the whole family had a great time together. The safety and training section was clear and well run, then the rest of the trip was just fun! We loved the added local history and information, but the segway ride was terrific. Our guide, Miguel, was so interesting and attentive, I felt safe and engaged all afternoon. I would happily do this again!

      A couple of hours to enjoy
      Another activity I have wanted to try but always missed opportunities. Worth the wait for sure. Instructions and a little practice to start then we are on our way, scenery stunning, the gardens soo pretty. These added to an exciting adventure andcso pleased I made the time to do this. It may not be as easy as it looks, but not difficult. Of course children manage better than the ageing. I am mid 60’s and enjoyed every moment.

    We called up on the spur of the moment, and were lucky enough to get an hour tour just for our family of four. Our guide, Kevin, was fabulous - quickly showing us how to operate the segways and then leading us on a really fun ride through the city and gardens. A really fun way see Queenstown.

    This Segway tour was a fantastic two hours of travelling through the town of Queenstown and around the lake. Seeing the magnificent scenery and even trying our hand at Disc golf. Kevin was a great guide and made the tour fun and informative and well worth every cent. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

    Booking was easy. As a solo traveller they needed other customers to book the same time slot but, were very helpful about making that happen for everyone's convenience.

    Everything went really well. Our guide (and owner of the business), Kevin, was friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining and ensured our safety and enjoyment all along the way. His side stop to give us a shot at playing a hole of the Disc Golf course was great as were some of the small thrills he tossed inat the end - all optional and classically Queenstown (adventure activity capital of the world!!).

    The equipment was well maintained and the ride was well-supervised without constrainng the fun, or the relaxed atmosphere that is Queenstown on a sunny afternoon.

    I did the 2-hour tour and since we were just three guests, we were able to cover quite a bit more than a larger group with Kevin giving us the chocie to explore further, or turn back.

    I've done Segway tours across four continents. I always enjoy them and this was certainly right up there with the best. If you're in Queenstown and want to see something more than obvious stuff for skiing, jet boats and bungy jumping then I strongly recommend this tour with Segway on Q.

    Fabulous way to see lots in a short time. Top quality equipment and instructor. A full safety briefing and practice session in a safe site is conducted for about 10 minutes before touring to ensure everyone is comfortable and able to manoeuvre well.
    The tour was almost exclusively off-road, with only one crossing which the guide escorted you through. Lakeside, main wharf, gardens all covered with stops along the way to explain history, fun facts and time to enjoy your surroundings. Keven takes you in small groups and is a fun and professional guide.
    My only note would be about the initial meeting location which is off the beaten track (on purpose). It can be a little confusing, but if you follow instructions carefully and watch for a gravel drive instead of a proper exit at the roundabout you will find it without a problem.

    The 2 hour tour was lots of fun. My wife and I found the Segways very easy to learn to ride and Kevin was a great instructor - friendly, easygoing but safety conscious. They are great machines to get around on and we felt confident on them very quickly. Amazing at climbing steep hills and covering rough ground but also easy to control when going through the township. A great introduction to Queenstown on our first day in town. Very highly recommended. Greg & Wenjie

    What a way to explore Queenstown! Our second time doing this tour with Kevin, he is extremely welcoming and has some very interesting facts about Queenstown you wouldn't otherwise know! He is very attentive and always makes sure you’re comfortable and safe whilst riding his well maintained Segways. Highly recommended and not to be missed on your next trip to Queenstown. - Roberts family.

    Some of our group of 8 were a little hesitant about this adventure, however it went well past all of our expectations. We had a blast and got to see more of stunning Queenstown. Kevin was a clear and patient teacher who got us all up and wheeling and confident in no time. He gradually increased our speed as our confidence grew and we all came away wanting to own our very own Segway! I HIGHLY recommend this tour as an environmentally low impact, highly enjoyable experience 👌🏻

    We had a great time on the segways with Kevin! We are a family of 2 adults, 3 teens and a 9yr old and it was loved by everyone. Best way to tour a bit of the town and Kevin was informative and interesting to talk to. We enjoyed our 1 hour tour so much we went back for the 2hr tour (at the request of the kids) the next day. Kevin was very accommodating and we thoroughly recommend you put this on top of your queenstown activity list.
