The Segway Machines
A Segway is a self balancing transportation device that allows you to freely move around where ever you want to go. It’s super easy to use a Segway – 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! Our qualified guides will patiently train you until you feel safe on your Segway. But most of our guests are ready to go within 5 minutes! But no pressure, take your time regardless.
Once you get the connection with the Segway, you are ready to go! The Segway uses a gyroscope to detect your movement: lean forward to drive, lean backwards to slow down or stop, and control the directions with the handlebar – it really is that simple!
As the authorized Segway tour operator in the country we always have the latest machines for your safety!
Our spacious waterfront training ground is the ideal private setting to learn and practice. Our location makes it possible for you to take off through quiet ‘no car’ paths and ease into the traffic.
Any restrictions to cruising on a Segway?
Your weight must be within 40 to 125 kg. You must be at least 135 cm tall. We don’t ride with kids under the age of 12 on public roads but we can tailor-make a private event for your family.
If you are pregnant or have mobility issues you can not participate on our tours.
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 have younger children or someone in your team not comfortable/able to cruise on a Segway we offer a Rickshaw solution or an E-bike. Whilst you cruise on your Segway(s) the others will follow along beside you in the comforts of a chauffeured Rickshaw or on their own cycle. Please note we need at least 48 hour notice to make these arrangements.

What about the weather?
Our 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 cruise 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.
