Our guide Paul is experienced and Segway is an awesome way to see the island (and meet some quokkas). I was totally new to this but the introductory session helped me gain confidence on the Segway very quickly.
Just a word of advice - if you book the 11am tour but are coming into Rotto on the morning ferry, it may be too rushed as you would still need to get a bus ride to the Segway meeting point. We were late for the morning tour, and thank God Paul allowed us to join in the afternoon tour, but I would advise participants to choose the afternoon tour if they are only taking the morning ferry in.
