I'll admit that I took this tour just because I wanted to ride a Segway. After seeing these things on TV and in the movies, I couldn't refuse. I expected the tour really be all about the machines, what they do, how they work... But...More

I think the guide (who also happens to be the owner of the company, Bob ?) should retire from this business for his own sake. I've never seen such a nervous wreck ! Or an impatient one. Never ridden a segway before ? No problem,...More
