What to Expect / FAQ
What should you expect from a Segway® Personal Transporter (PT) Tour with us?
Simple answer: A very FUN glide, beautiful scenery, and historic places!
Here are the details
First, we meet at the location of your choice or our shop in Green Bay or Fish Creek. Next, you pick your helmet (or bring your own). The Segway PT trainer trains each participant one at a time on the Segway PT. After being trained, you practice your turns and learn to trust the Segway PT (TRUST is the key). So far, this has taken about two – 25 minutes depending on the size of the group (there is always at least a 1:9 ratio between guides and FUN SEEKERS). Then we head out on the Segway PT into historic, serene, and beautiful places in Wisconsin!
Advanced Notice- No Penalty, (calling 3 hours or more before the tour)

*NO PENALTY IN CASE OF RAIN OR BAD WEATHER. The Segway has no problem with the rain but we understand if you do! Tours go out in light rain but can be canceled or rescheduled. Please call 920-376-0256 to change or cancel your tour.*
Do you have room for more than 8 people on a tour?
Yes, we have more than 45 Segways! If there are more than 9 people in your group you will just have more than 1 guide to take care of you.
Is there an age requirement?
Participants must be about 11 years old. You know your child best! If in doubt, arrange a time with us to have them try it out. In order to do a tour without an adult a FUN SEEKER must be at least 18
How old is too old?
There is not an upper age limit. A person must be comfortable on their feet and not tend to trip or fall because of health or age.
Is there a weight limit?
No, but the participant must be comfortable on their feet and does not tend to fall or trip because of weight.
Do you have to have GOOD BALANCE to ride a Segway PT?
No. You just have to TRUST the Segway PT and it will balance you.
Why don’t you have the location on your website for where we meet for our tour?
We don’t want people to show up for their tour without a reservation because we will not have a Segway for you. When you make your reservation we give you the meeting location (or look at this link to see all our tour meeting locations).
How long does a Segway tour last?
The majority of our Door County and Green Bay Segway tours last between one and two hours, although the Washington Island Tour lasts about five hours and a few of the tours are 50 minutes. Make sure to bring your camera!
Can a younger child ride with a parent/adult?
No. The Segway PT is designed for one rider. In many cases you can rent a bike for them to bring them along.
What about LARGE GROUPS in the fifties and hundreds?
We can bring Segway PTs to your gathering and train everyone in your group. Call for a quote about group Segway events!
