  • Awesome tour, recommend it to all, any age can do it, would definitely do it again. Great way to see Old Town.

  • we both really enjoyed our tour. Your feet may get a little sore but it was well worth it. I am over 60 and our guide said I was a natural. We will do this again if we ever get a chance.

  • A great way to see Old Town Scottsdale, especially in the heat! We did this tour in the evening, when the temps were a bit lower. Cameron was a great tour guide ... very knowledgeable and energetic. We all learned a lot about Scottsdale thanks to Cameron! The only downside was that it became dark very early, so it was difficult to see some of the sites. We would highly recommend this tour, and you shouldn't be worried if you've never been on a segway before. There were just enough instructions, and you get an opportunity to practice a bit before heading out. In no time at all, we were all pros! Thanks Cameron for a great evening ... and for showing us Scottsdale's best artwork, The Doors and the LOVE sculpture. We LOVE Old Town Scottsdale! The Ward Family from Hamilton, ON Canada

  • Cameren was our guide. He was fantastic and enlightened us to all the spots in Scottsdale to go, some History, and his knowledge of the desert keep us entertained as well. It's a lot of fun and they train you well before you get on the Segway, so it's pretty easy and fun! I live in Phoenix, AZ, my sister NY and I would do it again when I have anyone visiting. Thanks for a great time Segway!

  • My first Segway tour. I was nervous. I'm overweight and thought - oh boy! But it went smoothly. Our guide kept us moving along and I was very very happy that he kept me right by him in case I needed help. He also made sure the other more experienced riders had fun as well. A nice balance no pun intended. I would say - step out of your box and try it!

  • A wonderful experience! The Segway was fun and very easy to master. It only took about 5 minutes or so of practice to get the hang of it. Our guide was especially attentive to the safety aspects of the equipment and our tour.
    Sadly, I did not get the full advantage of the tour due to the lack of available headphones for the participants. It was near impossible to hear the guide's commentary.Though I must say that he did the best that he could given the circumstances.
    I was appreciative of his taking the time to take a photo of me.
    Viewing Old Scottsdale on a Segway is definitely the way to go. I've recommended the tour to my friends and even long time residents of Phoenix that I know.
    ps. I enjoyed the Segway so much that I am considering buying one.

  • Best travel tip we ever got- Do a Segway Tour. So much fun! Our tour guide Chris was so chill and calm that all us 1st timers had no reason to be worried. Highlights of shops, restaurants, area history and sights! So worth it- definitely will do again!

  • This was so much fun, I didn't want it to end!
    Chris was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide, he shared Scottsdale history as well as useful information about the area. The Segway was easier to maneuver than I expected, if you can stand, you can Segway.
    I definitely recommend this experience/tour. I will do it again the next time I'm in the area!

  • It was a blast! My parents are in there 60's so I was worried that they would have problems on the segways.
    They loved and were naturals.
    Jared gave us good training before we got started on our tour and made sure we felt comfortable before leaving the
    parking lot.
    Jared gave a great tour with some sights and history included.
    I would highly recommend this tour. I think my parents enjoyed this part of the trip as much as seeing the grand canyon.

  • What an experience: wonderful history of Scottsdale, charming quide, and we learned how to ride a Segway! It wasn't nearly as intimidating as I expected, and way more fun. I want to go again today. Jared is a great teacher/coach, he made the f2 hours fly. Terrific adventure for everyone....
