This was a GREAT Segway tour -- We did it on Sunday so no traffic, Hugh was a GREAT guide. Instructions were excellent; route was great; ongoing "Heads UP"; meaning what to do at the next intersection, etc. Hugh gave us great summations about the Museums at Balboa and all the parks on our tour. This was simply the Best Segway tour we have every taken!!! Later in the afternoon we took to the Gaslight and Coastal tour.

Had a great tour with our beloved guide, Segway Seth. Easy tutorial with enough time and practice to get comfortable. We always felt safe, and soon enough were ripping safely through the streets of downtown San Diego and Balboa Park.

Seth was fun, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about the sites, buildings, and monuments. He gave us ample opportunity to explore, and was a great photographer for us as well.

Overall, fantastic tour! Thanks, Segway Seth!

My sister and I did an awesome Segway tour today with Hugh! He gave a great beginner run thru of how it works and made sure everyone was comfortable before taking off. It was much easier than I thought! We cruised downtown heading to Balboa Park. He was very cautious with all of us making sure his “little ducklings” were always safe. This is a great way of seeing Balboa Park and I highly recommend this tour with Hugh! Thank you so much for the highlight of our trip!!

This Segway tour was very fun and revealed how huge and amazing Balboa Park really is. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a ubiquitous and beautiful snapshot of San Diego.

I went on the balboa park tour with Hugh for the fourth time and it keeps on getting better each time. Hugh is a great guide and very knowledgeable about San Diego and the sites we visited. I recommend the balboa park tour because you are so much in that 2 hour span. If I were staying in San Diego for another month I would definitely do the balboa park tour again and again. Bye the way, it is very easy to ride a Segway.

This was a highlight of our trip. Our son has a knee injury and there’s no way he could have walked as far as we went on the Segway. Our guide, Hugh, was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the area and he was very safety conscious. It was a great experience. Highly recommend.

Hugh the instructor was so kind and patient with my friend that is new to Segway. We both had such a good time that we both want to go back soon. A great COVID activity- there is open air and distancing and you can wear a mask. I just lightly sprayed the helmet with sanitizer and put sanitizer on my hands. So very fun- I highly recommend this activity for anyone - no skill needed👍🏻😁

Hugh was our guide and he was the best. He OBVIOUSLY has trained many, many people to use a Segway (which is, indeed, easy and fun). He has obviously done this tour many times as well.

All was great until my wife accidentally clipped a berm of curb around the base of a tree. She face planted and got skinned up on her face but, thank God, did not suffer any significant injury. Hugh was excellent in helping us and found an urgent care center for us to go to. He reassured us the Segways could be brought back by himself and, sure enough, he did it.

Segway tours are a lot of fun. You cover a lot of ground on one of those things. It is safe and easy.

Got the tour at a discounted rate. The 2 hours gave us the highlight of Balboa Park but not so much of Downtown. Its my son’s first time to ride the Segway and Hugh, our guide, was very patient and taught him well.
