FAQ – Frequently asked questions
What is the Procedure?
Once we have completed a quick check-in, where you get your safety helmet, radio equipment and sign our liability waiver, we take you to our waterfront training ground, right behind our store. Here, we have ample of room to train you before your Segway Tour in great surroundings – no traffic, no disturbances, no people staring – just us, you and the machine!
Our guests usually have the Segway technique down within a few minutes – it is that easy!
Depart on your chosen Segway Sightseeing Cruise with your guide. Now imagine yourself cruising on a state-of-the-art-machine through the beautiful streets of Copenhagen with the wind in your hair, having a great time!
You will end your Segway Cruise experience back at our store where a complimentary, organic refreshment awaits you. Not only that but you will also receive a little fun Segway souvenir….
Many of our guests hang out afterwards and enjoy the sea-side view. Feel free to do so as well!
CAN ANYONE RIDE A SEGWAY?
Ensure everyone in your group is over 135 cm tall and weighs between 35-125 kg. Kids have to be over 12 years of age to ride on public roads - with a legal guardian having signed for them. Families/ groups with kids under the age of 12: We can tailor-make a private tour that doesn't go in the traffic. It is a really great route!
We require that you are able to stand for the duration of your chosen tour and can step up and down from the Segway with ease.
If you are pregnant or have any mobility issues, incl. knee or foot problems, you can not participate on our Segway tours. However, we can arrange a rickshaw option for the ones who are unable to ride a Segway. The rickshaw will follow along the tour and you will also get a radio to hear live commentary from our guide. That way the group will stay together!
A Segway is a self balancing transportation device that allows you to freely move around where ever you want to go. It uses a gyroscope to detect the movement of your body. When you lean forward it goes forward, when you lean backwards it reverses. The Segway slows you down if you are going too fast and it will hold your balance perfectly as long as the tires have traction. You should never jump or do tricks on a Segway.
Segway Cruise only uses the latest Segway models and we are owned by the Segway Distributor in Denmark.
Is it difficult to cruise on a Segway?
No, to put it simply! You will get individual training prior to tour start and most of our guests are ready to go within a few minutes! No pressure - all our guides are patient and will ensure you feel safe and comfortable before heading out. Furthermore, please note that our tours start exclusively in a non-traffic zone.
Another important point to note: Our spacious training ground gives you a solid opportunity to practice before we set off on your Segway Cruise Tour.
As the only authorized Segway tour operator in the whole country we always have the latest machines for your comfort and safety!
AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR KIDS TO CRUISE on a Segway?
To join our our public tours the child must weigh at least just around 35 kg whilst fulfilling our minimum height requirement of 135 cm.
If you have kids in your group who you do not want to take into any traffic at all then for a small fee during 2020 we are happy to plan a route that does not enter traffic at all and only for you and your family /group.
Another option is that we can always arrange for a Rickshaw to follow alongside one of our Segway tours if you have kids that cannot be on a Segway at all (or if any elderly would like to come out too). It is a great option to stay together. Please note we need at least 48 hour notice to make a Rickshaw arrangement.
ANY weather RESTRICTIONS?
Our Segway tours are completed in almost any kind of weather. If it starts to rain on the tour – or before – you will be offered a complimentary rain-poncho. However, please bring your own rain protective gear to make your Segway Cruise Tour as comfortable as possible. We will never complete a tour in dangerous weather such as: Snow, ice, heavy wind or cloudbursts. We reserve the right to cancel your booked tour under any weather conditions that we deem dangerous for our guests. You will of course get the option to re-book your tour or get a full refund in these cases - please also see our T&C for further info.
