This was a wonderful tour. The Segway itself is a little hard on the feet (the soles of your feet will be sore), but it's a great way to see Santa Barbara. The training is thorough and it's surprisingly easy to ride a Segway. Skye...More

Had a great time segwaying around Santa Barbara. New ownership. Good people. Our guide was Skye and he was excellent and very knowledgeable. A bit cold in March so dress appropriately. We were new at this and Skye took the time to "train" us. Thanks...More

The Segway is more fun that driving a car with its top down. Never rode one before, took about five minutes and you feel like a pro. Better than a bike, as it does the work, allowing you to see more. Did the Old Town...More

Sky was great fun. We covered a lot of ground on the Mission tour. Bring a light coat or sweater, as it can be chilly and the weather changes fast. Well worth it!

Glkl- as much as we appreciate a good review, I believe this was meant for another company on Maui? I'm sure they must have done a good job and deserve your praise. Perhaps look them up and send it again to them. Thank You, Genivieve

12 years old and 5 feet tall is just fine! 12 is the minimum age and 5 feet is a great size for the Segway tour! I hope to see you soon!
