Owner description: Magic Broomstick Segway Tours is an absolute "Must do" while you are in Auckland. This activity is fun and exciting and just a little out of the ordinary as you experience the unique sensation of riding a Segway. We first teach you the art of riding then you're off on a tour or short ride. Gliding to the summit of Mt. Victoria or North Head, Devonport's volcanic cones, where you can checkout the Military fort's of the 1880's and be gob-smacked by the awesome views of Auckland city and the Hauraki Gulf is suitable for those over 13 years of age. If you would like a shorter ride we have a "Taste" of Segway which takes in the beaches and Victorian Villa's of Devonport. If you have a 10 year old in your group you can still experience the awesome Segway as we have a FUN Family ride especially for you.
Useful Information: Activities for older children, Lockers / storage

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.

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
