We visited the Outer Hebrides whilst on a cruise around the British Isles. The ship were charging double the price for the Segway tour. We went direct and had the most wonderful hour, stunning scenery that will stay in my mind forever. LOVED IT X

We had a great time at Segway Hebrides. A good, safe way to learn and experience a Segway tour for the first time in beautiful surroundings away from the traffic and pedestrians you sometimes see on other tours in cities abroad.

Nice countryside a few stops to learn about the history and culture of the island. Good new equipment and a pleasant and safety conscious guide. Dog walkers are quite a menace !

This was a great way to see the castle grounds and our guide was both very patient and informative. Would definitely go back. We had been on Segways before and this was a great environment to use them in. Book it.
