Tour was fun but it's better when each person has their own headset to listen to history along the way, rather than trying to hear the tour guide use a bullhorn. Jonathan was eccentric and could have arrived earlier to teach new Segway riders so the time on the tour wasn't impacted. Overall the group was satisified and had a great time, but two of us has done multiple tours in other cities and found this one much less organized and professional.
We experienced our Segway tour just hours after landing in Seattle. The Segway 101 tutorial was effective and quite sufficient for someone who has never been on a Segway before. Our tour guide was awesome. He showed interest in us and what we were looking for in our tour and he shared information about Seattle... some of which I'd consider obscure. Information about the Seattle Aquarium, the Edgewater Hotel, the Space Needle, and the happenings underground during prohibition. The best part of the tour was experiencing it all on a Segway! We highly recommend this tour and would do it again just to ride the Segway.
This Segway tour is a really fun way to see a whole lot of the down town Seattle area & the water front in a short 2 hour time frame , it's the most fun you can have on two wheels !!!
Knowledgeable guide, covered a lot of ground!!
Brandon was wonderful! Accommodated our requests and had lots of info about the city. Wonderful!
Our training to use the Segway was excellent, and our guide was attentive to make sure the group stayed together. We felt the tour could have been much more informative about what we were seeing as we rode around.
The Segway ride itself and the areas we traveled were excellent. I was disappointed that 50 minutes of a 2 hr. tour was spent learning to ride Segways when only 2 out of the 8 people had never ridden one. I felt that too much time was spent indoors before getting to actually ride. Also we only stopped once for pictures and thought that we should have stopped more often.
Really enjoyed the tour. Riding a Segway was a great way to cover a lot of ground and see a big part of the downtown area, although with enjoying beautiful views. Our tour guide, Jonathan, taught us more about Seattle's history and current environment. Would highly recommend.
Effective instruction. We were concerned that the area would be too congested with pedestrian for a safe tour by beginners, but no problem. Allowed up close looks at downtown neighborhoods.
We went on the Segway tour as a family of four and we all enjoyed it. The tor was a great way to whizz around the key sights in Seattle and our guide was very knowledgeable. Being on a Segway made the tour special, and even our teenage sons enjoyed it. Thank you!!
Eric spent too much time on training and very little on tour guiding...telling people what they are seeing. He only articulated what we were seeing on the end of Pier 70 and at the EMP. To his benefit, the International Fountain was under repair and a train blocked the Alaskan Way crossing, so he took us north through the Myrtle Edwards park and over the overpass up to Seattle Center via the Key Arena entrance...possibly better than up the hill from the Sculpture Park!
Having never been on a Segway before, I was quite nervous but the guide had me zipping comfortably along after a brief practice session. We got an excellent overview of the city and the guide had lots of insight and knowledge of the places we visited.
Location was in a bad part of town. To make sure we were on time we got there early and found the door unlocked while the homeless begged from us. When making the reservations, the lady on the phone was not very helpful in assisting us to negotiate the city. Ryan did a great job.
I have been on Segway tours before where the guide used a walkie talkie system to make sure that all participants could hear the relevant information. That system wold have enhanced our experience. On the other hand, our guide, Jonathan, was very enthusiastic and that was good.
Great time. Guide was awesome. Highly recommend adding this to your vacation experience.
We felt the Seattle location was poor, the shop did not reflect a good professional business and looked and felt like a back alley trade. The tour leader was unexciting, in a hurry and looked like we woke him up. 30 min. into the tour he began to have more life and share more knowledge of the area. We have had an opportunity to take 4 other segway tours in other cities so we were not novices. At the end of the tour we had a challenge with the payment as I had paid on line thru Groupon.com and explained it to him. A call was made to his supervisor out of state. He was kind to cancel the charge and give us credit to make it right, alittle ackward. We thought he was cooperative yet ill informed of the policy and procedures with Groupon. Hopefully this constructive criticism will be beneficial to the success of your business.
Probably should of had another tour guide helper to bring up the rear, and make sure everyone makes it across the streets safely. Also could of had more information given during the tour about the city etc
Seattle was one of the better cities we have segwayed around. Very good way to see the sights .
Our Johathan was the best tour guide I've ever had on a Segway tour. The tour itself was great - we were trained, there was good information given at several spots and I felt safe. I would highly recommend taking this tour.
excellent tour and guide, if not a little eccentric. a little difficult to find. wish it would've been more clear on the time. our tour was 90 minutes on the road and 30 minutes in the building. there's no reason to hide this information, and it makes for a difficult conversation at the end. always be upfront with the customers...do not make them ask. it's awkward....and can tick them off.
We loved the segways and our guide was excellent. I would have loved to go by the public market which is something I thought we were scheduled to do and get some more information about pioneer square while we were there. The instruction we go was very good and made everyone feel comfortable on the segways. This was the last thing we did in Seattle and I wish it had been the first. It provides a great overview of the city.
I would have liked more commentary from the guide. When I took a Segway tour in Columbus, the helmets had microphones, so the guide was able to regal us with great tidbits throughout the tour - not just when we stopped.
Best way to get acquainted with the water front Pikes Place and Space needle area. Highly recommend
There was communication problem. When I purchased tickets via the phone, I was told to be there at 2:00 for a 2:30 appointment, When we showed up at 2:00 the office was closed and we had to wait for 20 minutes before anyone came. Your office is not located in a good area. In addition, after tour was complete, we were asked to pay again. I had to show my receipt to prove payment and when this was done, the office said that there was a manual entry for payment. The tour itself was awesome and we had a great time.
First of all - the overall tour was great. Our guide was extremely pleasant and informative. IMHO having been on a few of these in various cities this one felt the least 'professional'. Let me explain. 1. The location of the facility is horrible. I realize there is overhead to staffing the office space however only having someone there 10 min prior given your location is unsettling. This leaves people mostly first timers to your city potentially waiting / standing in one of the worst places in the city. Not a good impression and very uncomfortable for many. 2. Most of the tours now include an ear piece as part of their guide. While some may find it distracting this only provides the folks at the front to get live updates and given the city traffic etc this limits the actual verbal tour to the 'stops' where everyone gathers. This also provides the guide with a means to get feedback from those that become separated from the lead pack.
The guide (Ryan) was late and completely unwelcoming. However the instruction on the Segway was good. It's a shame we never got to top speed as the route was fairly busy. Ryan didn't offer to take any photos along the way which was disappointing. Two of the ladies on the tour fell off their Segway but Ryan was totally oblivious and we had to help instead. Overall it was enjoyable but it could have been so much better.
