As soon as we knew there was a segway tour in Auckland, we booked it. Alison, our guide, took us past all the beautiful houses and up to mount Victoria and the gun emplacements as well as the beautiful open spaces and the beaches. Devenport looks like a lovely place to live. The tour is so much fun and zipping up the hill to the mount is a breeze. It is the easiest thing in the world to learn to do and once you try it you'll be hooked. It is the best way to see a city or a town because you can cover so much ground so quickly. Get over on an early ferry- say 110 ish and do the tour then have brunch at Corelli's. Or have brunch and do the 12.30 tour. Either way, you won't regret it. And everyoen smiles as you pass them by. Segway envy is a REAL thing. Yee-ha.

Hey Farmer668,
Just love your review and I'll pass it on to Alison who will be thrilled that you enjoyed the Segway experience so much. Also great to hear that you were impressed by Devonport's charm.
Best regards

Loved our 1-hour tour with Eridani. Never been on a segway before but Eridani's instructions and safety briefing had us up and going with confidence in a very short time.

It was a fun tour as well as informative. Even though we are Aucklanders who have been to Devonport heaps of times, Eridani showed us places we'd never been to.

Eridani took great care to ensure we were safe at all times on the Segways - checking traffic, alerting us to bumps in the footpath or pointing out low-hanging trees in our path.

My only criticism is that they didn't respond to my phone message or the paid online booking. I had to phone twice to get hold of them and ensure they'd got our booking (which was for a special date that I didn't want to miss). However, I suspect that most of their customers just arrive at Devonport Wharf and phone them from there.

The Tour took me to the sites of the North Shore I didn't know existed.
The North Heads Historic Military defence sites with a large Gun, with Bunkers and Tunnels was just one of the highlights. Having ridden a Segway's on overseas tours I found it very easy to ride.
My guide was very knowledgeable about the Devonport area and she spoke with passion about the history of the people and the places on the two and a half hour ride.

Thanks Grant B. It's great to get your feedback. All of our guides are local residents or if not now have grown up here in Devonport therefore are passionate about the village and it's history, so thanks for your 5 stars and for taking the time to rate us.

Had such fun on our Segway tour with Ariane (sorry not sure if that's correct name or spelling but she was great!) Our tour guide made sure we knew what we were doing on our Segways and then we set off for a fun and informative tour round Devenport which is so pretty and we had spectacular views from North Head and other spots around the area. Thanks so much!

Thanks for your review Lizzie. I 'm really pleased you enjoyed your tour with Eridani (Ariane - that's a pretty good attempt) I know she loves Segway guiding and North Head is her favourite. Best regards Pauline

We rode the ferry to Davenport with no particular plan for what to do while we were there. When we arrived and saw the Segway sign, we suddenly knew just what we would do. We headed up to the North Head for fantastic views of the village of Davenport and the Auckland city skyline before exploring the tunnels and battlements. Then we were off to the beach for a brief visit. We capped the tour off by heading back through the village to the ferry building. The village of Davenport is charming and chalk full of lovely examples of Victorian architecture. Our guide had extensive knowledge of the village as well as some fun anecdotes. We had a great time with Magic Broomstick Tours.

Thanks Karol, Your tour guide Eridani just loves showing people around Devonport. Growing up in the village her special love is of North Head, I'm sure as a teenager those tunnels were explored more in-depth than I know about, and I never knew the ranger dogs even existed. Eridani enjoyed meeting you both. Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to write a review.
Best regards, Pauline
