Take a whirlwind tour of inner city Dunedin on a Segway, which allows you to cover much more ground than you would on a walking tour. Your guide will teach you how to safely and skillfully operate the two-wheeled, self-balancing, electric scooter and then you're off. Learn about the history and culture of Dunedin through your guide's commentary while passing highlights such as the Exchange, the Chinese Gardens, and the Toitu museum.
What to Expect

Our one hour Taster tours begin with comprehensive training. Segways are intuitive to ride. We will get you up and moving safely and skillfully in next to no time.

Then we’re off around inner city Dunedin

Get a sense of the history and stories of the colonial past, the relationships of Tangata Whenua with the Scottish settlers. Explore the Chinese influence on the city since the gold rushes of the 1860’s. See the historic buildings, the original hub of the city at the ‘Exchange’ and the first churches. Take in the prominent city street art and get a photo at the most photographed building in the country. Finally the settlers’ museum ‘Toitu’ and the ‘Chinese gardens’ .

The ride will feel like it flies by, but we will always make time for fun and photos. You wont be able to wipe the wide grin off your face. 

A minimum or 2 and a maximum of 5 riders are allowed on a tour. Please see the terms and conditions and FAQ’s. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Such a fun experience!

My boyfriend and I are local Dunediners but had never been on a segway even though we had seen them zooming around town all the time so we thought we would give it a try! It was so much fun and Dereck was very calm...More

Hello Elish Thank you for the review. Yes those first few minutes on a Segway are almost always a bit jittery, but you overcame it very quickly and looked very natural by the end of training. As always we do not take anyone out touring...More

Great experience!

Very interesting way to see Dunedin from a different view! After giving us a lesson on using the segways, our experienced guide took us for an one hour tour through the city. We all really enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it! Thank you!
