Segway instruction covered all safety aspects of riding the Segway. Graham is very patient and we all got underway to do the city tour of Christchurch. We saw virtually every interesting site and Graham is quite knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants heaps of fun, and education about Christchurch. We stopped off half way to buy... More

Thanks for your great feedback. We did the Rebuild Tour and had fun along the way, including a totally impromptu dance at the "Dance-O-Mat". As you described; the Tour is fun & educational regarding history & our rebuild effort after disaster. Happy travels! More

What an amazing morning cruising Christchurch on wheels. Absolutely loved the combo tour as we got to see a little of lots and of course ride the Segway. Graham gave us comprehensive instructions before leaving and everyone had a great time with a coffee stop off in the CBD. On a foolish (oops coolish) day would recommend a wind jacket... More

Had a great time on our tour of Christchurch with Graeme. Since we were a party of four, he was able to be flexible on the time the tour started, which was very convenient since we landed at the airport the same day. If you are a first time rider, no worries. There is plenty of time at the beginning... More

Wow what a great way to see the inner city. Segways are an experience all of their own, a lot of fun and easy to master. This attraction was great and highly recommended.

What a day. Family of five - kids 10-16. None of us had ever done Segway before. Graeme gave us a great lesson which was mercifully short. We were experts in no time! It was a great way to see the city. Covered a lot of ground. And Graeme is an expert tour guide. Awesome!

Graeme Gordon was an excellent host for our visit to the earthquake damaged and renovated downtown area of Christchurch. After a demostration of our segway skills Graeme gave us a short, thorough lesson on safety and we brushed up on our turns, stops and most importantly: dismounts. With our helmets securly on we headed out for the tour. Graeme was... More

Urban Wheels was such a fun way to have a look around Christchurch. We are locals who decided it would be fun to be tourists in our own city and go for a ride on a Segway. Graeme was very good and patient with the training before we were good to go, and very knowledgeable re: Christchurch rebuild. It was... More

My husband had reservations about this sightseeing tour of Christchurch. By the end of our tour we both wished it went longer. We had so much fun and Graeme is amazing. He is an extremely knowledgeable and passionate tour guide. Very patient yet thorough in his instruction. Wonderful way to see Christchurch. Suitable for all ages. Money well spent.
