Review by Dennis Kenny
Fun event with great instructors.
18 July 2012
Explore the beauty of the English countryside with this Segway Adventure Tour. With an experienced guide leading the way, you’ll access places that bicycles and cars can’t take you.
Choose from two stunning locations - Leeds Castle in Kent or Upton Country Park in Dorset - for this exhilarating tour that will have you whizzing your way along picturesque trails on an adventure to remember. Easy to use, Segways are a novel and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation, perfect for seeing the sights in the great outdoors.
On arrival, you will be welcomed by your instructor and issued with your personal safety protection equipment. Once you have signed a short disclaimer, you will receive a safety briefing and demonstration on how to use a Segway. You will then have the chance to practice driving your Segway before embarking on a tour through the countryside with your guide.
Be sure to take your camera with you as you’re bound to want to stop and photograph the beautiful scenery as you make your way through one of these two locations:
Kent – Maidstone: Explore the breathtaking grounds of Leeds Castle, which many consider to be the loveliest castle in the world. You’ll take in views that those on foot don’t usually get to see as you venture through gardens and meadows, over water and off-road before heading uphill for the ultimate view.
Dorset - Poole: Your guided Segway Tour will begin with a glide through the grounds to a breath taking view across Holes Bay. From here you will continue through the nature reserve where you will see an abundance of wildlife and plants; some unique to this site. On the return towards the house there will be an opportunity for a professional photographer to take pictures of you, on your Segway overlooking the grounds or the House itself; these are available to purchase after your tour as a reminder of this exciting experience. Your tour may also take you onto dirt tracks and into Grove Woods where you'll see what these amazing machines can really do as you zip up and down slopes and through the trees.
