Had an absolute blast. 11 and 14 year old girls and they loved it. Hugh was a fantastic guide and I'd highly recommend it. I'd go again tomorrow but the Capitol expenditure manager won't let me.

This is the number one thing to do in Nelson, and a great way to see parts of the town, full instruction and handy tips. We were a party of mainly seniors and Hugh was a good teacher.

Four of us (2 couples) had a fun time on the Segways. None of us had ridden them before and my wife was very apprehensive about riding these unusual machines. A few test rides soon settled any concerns and we had a great time. Supervisor...More
