Norah was terrific. Took us around town; many stops to see sites and learn about the city. It was a good time and we appreciated her taking us round about many of the locales I wanted to check out.

Outstanding tour and lesson. Definitely add time if you are able to extend your time and talents on the Segway. Loved it for a 59 yr old woman. No problem.

Amazing experience! Staff was very polite and accommodating. Would definitely do it again.

My experience was great! Our instructor was excellent and the weather was very good.

We needed more than the 4 hours we had. It was so interesting!
