Segway Edmonton's tour of the Edmonton River Valley is the first of it's kind.We employ a very thorough training program for riders of all experience levels. Upon arrival to Louise Mckinney park, you will watch a safety video about the operation of the Segway. We will then conduct a training session to cover all the skills required to safely operate a Segway.Once this is completed, we will depart and take an hour and a half tour through the River Valley with short stops to talk about the River Valley and the Segways. There will be a couple points where we will show you the top speed of the Segway in a safe, controlled environment.

My friend and I have been talking about this for 2 years. I finally brought her for her birthday and had the best time! This is an absolute must-do! Our Segway guide, Chloe, was super personable and hilarious. We will definitely go again!! Little tip - go for 1.5 hours :)

I tried this adventure out with a couple of girlfriends, we all enjoyed it. I'm a little fearful to try things at times but I found the instructor extremely encouraging and patient and he made me feel relaxed.

We booked a Segway course/tour to experience a part of or city in a new and different way. The staff at River Valley Adventure were very good, friendly and attentive. They managed to motivate everybody in the group (we were 6 people. I don't know how big they go with group size). The instructor was fun and proficient to get... More

The guide was amazing, knowing facts about Calgary that even us Calgarians didn't know. Well done, and I highly recommend this for anyone in any city. Hoping to see this in Vancouver soon :)

What a fun way to explore the river valley, riding on a Segway! You are given training on the Segway prior to take off and a guide is with you the entire time. As a result you continue to gain confidence as you go. We went in the fall with the leaves in full color but I would imagine it... More

These folks run a great tour package, and riding a segway is a lot of fun. I have live 45 years in Edmonton and still saw new things.

Hi wsw23, We are so happy that we could show you some more of the beauty Edmonton has to offer! Did you know the river valley is north america's largest urban green space!? This means you should definitely come back for another tour and explore the trails even farther! Thanks so much, Sincerely, The Segway Team More

It took me a few minutes to get comfortable with the segway - I was tour was limited - it became more about enjoying the segway and less about touring the river valley - there was a lot of construction and some areas fence off.

Had a great time in the fall of 2015. Took the lessons and then for an additional sum went for a ride through the river valley. Have been meaning to do it again.

My husband and I really enjoyed learning how to ride a segway. The only complaint we had was there just wasn't enough time. The instructor did tell us that if we book another tour that we wouldn't have to go through the training part again, we would just get an hour of touring, which would be awesome.
