Owner description: Segway Orange County has been the only Segway-authorized tour location in Orange County since our opening in January, 2005! We conduct 1.5-hour and 2.5-hour guided Segway tours of the Balboa Peninsula from our store in Newport Beach. Enjoy the Balboa Pier, the boardwalk, the beautiful homes, the harbor and the famous "Wedge" while riding an amazing Segway accompanied by one of our local, knowledgeable tour guides.

From the beginning, I felt that personal touch when booking over the phone with Carol. We booked kind of last minute and she was so helpful! We didn't necessarily have teens, we had a 19 and 21 year old with us.

When we were running late, Carol booked us onto the next available tour the same day over the phone!

We arrived at Segway OC and Preston taught us the basics before leading in the tour. We rolled up Balboa Pier, visited the Wedge, and saw some of the beautiful luxury homes in the Island. Segways are surprisingly easy to ride and very nimble. A fun experience that I highly recommend. We had a fabulous time with Preston at Segway OC.

What fun! My daughter, her friend, and myself got to spend a spectacular day touring the Balboa and New Port beach on Segways. First, don't panic. It is really easy to get the hang of and the training is really good.

Margie was our guide and she was full of personality and very informative. She had trivia and made the day really fun. The place is absolutely beautiful and it was a cool way to see everything in a short time. We laughed and learned and took lots of pictures.

If you are up for an adventure, this was a really cool way to spend the morning and was super easy to learn.

Go do it and ask for Margie if you can....she was the best!

Segway tours have become one of our go to activities when traveling to new cities. These guys did not disappoint. Guide was fun and knowledgeable. You get to see a lot in a short time on a Segway. Equip was in good shape, the training top notch and getting on and off the ferry was a lot of fun. A must do.

Want a break from Disneyland rides? Go for a ride on a Segway. After a couple of scheduling hiccups, Richard took us on a tour of Balboa Peninsula and, because it was cloudy, the place was uncharacteristically uncrowded so we had a great ride. We traveled along the boardwalk, enjoying the beach sights and the palatial homes, and had a an informative running commentary. It was an enjoyable afternoon, and they make sure riding is safe and you are comfortable with the machine before leaving the store.
