There were 4 in our group with no one else on the tour so that made it kind of extra special I think! Tiffany our guide was an excellent instructor and tour guide and she made it all fun! It was just totally great trying something new!

Our Tempe Town Lake first segway experience

My wife and I truly enjoyed this tour. This was our first time riding a Segway. Our tour guide "Tiffany" made this this whole event absolutely great. From the Segway training, to showing Tempe Lake, and explaining everything very clearly for us made this tour one to remember. We will definitely take our next tour with you again soon, but we have to have Tiffany as our tour guide.

So much fun!

Tiffany and the other guide (I can't remember his name.) were awesome! Tiffany was very detailed with her instruction and both guides were always making sure that we were ok and having a great time. I can't wait to do it again!! One suggestion I would like to make is that at the end of the tour they should offer an additional hour for anyone who is interested for a fee.

Went with some friends to try it out, and it was a lot more fun than I anticipated. I look forward to trying their downtown Scottsdale tour once the weather cools off.

I had a great experience with my Segway ride! I struggled a little bit balancing but the tour guides were fantastic and worked with me until I felt comfortable! The ride is on a relaxing course and a great activity for any person of any age! The tour guides do a great job of making you feel comfortable and show you how to have a good time! I would definitely recommned this activity to anyone!

Great fun!

The instructors were very helpful and made it easy to quickly learn how to ride a Segway! A few laps around the parking lot and we were good to go! There were college age kids on up to people that were in their 70's that took the tour! It was an hour and a half of leisure Segway stroll in Tempe. My wife, son and I really enjoyed the tour and we highly recommend it to everyone! We will be doing it again! Easy to learn, safe and fun!

Mary and I had the best time, did not want to stop. This is our third segway experience and by FAR our best. The weather, the route, the guides (Tiffany and Emma) were just the very best. We will do some kind of segway trip with you guys ever time we go to spring training. It was really, really fun. Thanks you guys. Mark and Mary

Ratings and Reviews for:
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Advance purchase is strongly recommended, as tours often sell out quickly. To maximize your chance of getting the day and time you prefer, please book well in advance. You can do this using only Visa, Mastercard or American Express.
Who can ride the Segway?
Although riding a Segway is relatively easy, all riders be at least 16 years of age (an adult or guardian must accompany children under 18). Also, riders should have the ability to make motions such as climbing and descending stairs without assistance. The Segway is not appropriate for those weighing under 100 pounds or over 265 pounds.
I have children in my group that are under 16 years old. Can they still come on the tour?
No, unfortunately children under the age of 16 are not permitted on the tour for safety reasons.
Do I have to sign a waiver?
All Segway riders must sign a liability waiver before participating. Riders under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign for them.
What happens if it rains?
If it rains, Segways are water resistant and we will provide ponchos, so we should still be able to go out. In the event that severe weather forces us to cancel, you will be able to reschedule your tickets subject to availability or receive credit for a future tour.
Are pregnant women allowed to attend?
Unfortunately, for safety reasons, pregnant women are not allowed to participate on Segway tours.
How long are we actually on the Segway?
The training takes about 30 minutes, so the tour will last for about an hour.
Do Segways have the ability to store bags, purses?
We have the ability to transport necessary items i.e. cameras, medications, etc. Segway of Tempe is not responsible for lost or stolen articles.
How do I learn to ride a Segway PT ?
All customers are required to take a 20-30 minute hands-on training session to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Riders are trained on Segway PT operation and emergency stops. All riders are required to wear a safety helmet.
How safe is the Segway PT?
The utmost care and research has gone into ensuring that the Segway PT is safe. The Segway PT's balancing technology is truly revolutionary and provides an exceptional riding experience. The Segway PT has redundant systems and sophisticated alerts built into its design, and many thousands of hours of use have demonstrated that the Segway PT is safe when used appropriately. It is important that Segway PT riders understand their responsibility to ride safely. Proper skill level and understanding of the Segway PT prevents injuries caused by loss of control or misuse.
What's the difference between the morning and evening tours?
The evening tours are timed so that you will see the sunset, and can take advantage of the cooler times of the day. Otherwise the tour routes are exactly the same!
What is the Gen2 Segway Personal Transporter (PT) i2?
On Monday, August 14, 2006, Segway released their second generation personal transporter (PT) with the model name i2. This machine utilizes new technology called LeanSteer which allows the rider to lean in the direction he/she would like to turn. The Segway keys have also been updated to include wireless capability.
How fast can the Segways go?
The Segway can go up to 12.5 mph, and we will allow you to go up to maximum speed on the tour. The tour route is a very safe environment with plenty of open space!
How many people are in a tour group?
We can have anywhere from 6 to 25 people in one group.
I am a local - will I still enjoy the tour?
Absolutely. Even if you're from the area, you will get firsthand experience of touring Tempe Town Lake, learning its history and seeing things you haven't seen from a unique perspective and in a way you've never tried before!
Are food and drink available? What about souvenirs?
There will be snacks and drinks available for purchase at the store (the starting point of the tour). T-shirts and ball caps are also available for purchase at the store. We will not stop along the route to purchase anything, though.
How will I hear the tour guide’s commentary?
Each rider will be provided with a top of the line headset unit, making it easy to hear the information being offered by the guide and guaranteeing an optimal tour experience.
Will we go inside any of the locations?
No, the tour is conducted entirely outdoors. We will, however, have many opportunities to take photos along the way!
Are restrooms available?
Yes, a restroom will be available at the store at the start of the tour, and then at a rest stop about 20 minutes into the tour portion (50 minutes after the start time).
Are rentals available?
Unfortunately Segway rentals are not available. Try a tour instead!
Can I arrange for a private/corporate/business event?
Yes, we offer private group tours, up to 25 Segways, for corporate functions and private events. For more information, please click on the "Contact AZSegway" link.
