- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Discover the delights of Segway travel with a tour around Upton Country Park in Dorset, the perfect way to experience the thrill of Segways and see some of the beautiful sights the nature reserve has to offer.
The session begins on arrival at the park where you'll find the instructor ready and waiting, with all the Segways prepared for your trip. After a quick demonstration you'll take your first step onto these futuristic machines, and have a quick practise to get used to the sensation - trust us, Segways are unlike any vehicle you've tried before! The instructor will then guide you through the nature reserve, zooming down flower-lined paths and heading towards the majestic Upton House, an 18th century manor house that makes the perfect backdrop for a photo on your Segway! You'll then head off-road into Grove Wood, rolling past 300 year old trees whilst trying to spot all three species of UK woodpecker. The off-roading requires a bit more concentration as you dip, turn, and accelerate across the uneven surface, before following the guide back to the starting point at the Upton Country Park tea rooms.
The Segway tour in Dorset is ideal for those new to the wonderful world of Segway, and makes a totally unique gift that is sure to be remembered for a lifetime.

A most enjoyable experience. Good introduction and practice to get the feel of these amazing pieces of machinery. The route through Upton Country park was varied and interesting, on all types of terrain. By the end, it was as if the Segways just went the way of your thoughts; almost didn't need 'driving' at all. Very good all round.
Lovely tour of Upton Park! Very fun. We would have enjoyed racing more off roads and going faster LOL :-)
