What is the Segway Personal Transporter?
The Segway PT is the first ever self-balancing, eco-friendly, electric-powered transportation device. With dimensions no larger than the average adult body and the ability to emulate human balance. The Segway uses the same space as a pedestrian and can go wherever a person can walk.
How does the Segway work?
Dynamic stabilization is the essence of the Segway. It enables the Segway to work seamlessly with the body’s movements. Gyroscopes and tilt sensors in the unit monitor a rider’s centre of gravity at about 100 times a second. When the rider leans slightly forward, the Segway moves forward. When the rider leans slightly back, the Segway moves backward. The Segway is really safe when used appropriately.
How far in advance do I need to reserve?
You can call or email us to check availability on the same day of your glide. However it is quite possible that there will be no places. We suggest you reserve your tour as much in advance as you can to secure your desired date.

Absolutely, however, we do recommend that you ask your instructor to take your picture so you can focus on riding and balancing on your Segway.
