- 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.

If you're looking to complete an adventurous segway tour, this is fantastic. The tour guide was very friendly and put me at ease as I was slightly apprehensive before getting on the segway. Soon realising you have a lot more control then what you first think! I would love to go again.
I had the most enjoyable time during my segway tour! The guide was extremely friendly and made sure everyone in the group felt comfortable on the segways before setting off on the tour. The tour route was really lovely, as we headed through Upton Country Park in Dorset and got to see some amazing countryside views along the way. I'm definitely going to be back because they said they regularly change the route, as a lot of people come back again for a second go, so I get to see more wonderful places in Upton Country Park.
Really good experience, enjoyed the Segway tour despite the cold. It was made so much better by our guide Chris.
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 :-)
We then walked back over to the meeting point for the segway tour and were welcomed by our instructor Jeremy. Once everyone in the group had arrived, we were given an introduction to the tour and how to safely work the segways. Then it was time to hop onto the segways and give it a go for ourselves. I was very impressed with the sensitivity of the segways and how - with only the slight push of the handlebar - you'd really get them moving.
The initial part of the tour included a training stage, which involved gliding the segways around a circle of cones. This was great, as it gave everyone time to get to grips with the techniques and gain confidence before we went out into the park. As the group followed the circuit around, you could really hear the energy and excitement in everyone's voices as they tested the segways. Throughout the training, Jeremy would instruct us to change direction and speed up, which made the training a lot more fun and created a challenge for everyone. Although we all felt confident to go out into the course, we did laugh over the number of cones that had been run over!
Now all the training was completed, it was time to head out into the park on our segway tour. Throughout the tour, we traveled in single file and glided effortlessly around the paths of the estate. It was amazing to witness the historic and natural side of Upton Country Park on a modern mode of transport, as we saw the well-kept gardens, extensive lawns, the shoreline of Holes Bay and Upton House. It was no surprise that we all wanted to stop along the way to take some pictures of the views and, of course, ourselves on a segway!
If you're looking for an experience that involves both scenic views and a fun activity, then this Segway Tour Experience in Dorset is definitely one to book! Get the family together for a fun day out, meet up with your friends and have a real laugh throughout the tour, or go by yourself, as you'll be joined by a friendly instructor and group of other budding modern explorers.
