COVID-19 Business Update
In response to advice from the Australian Government due to concerns around COVID-19, Segway Tours WA have ceased all tours in Perth, Fremantle and Rottnest Island and their office is closed. Segway Tours looks forward to welcoming visitors back to Perth soon.
Don't let the Swan River, Rottnest Island and Fremantle pass you by, set your own pace without taking a step. Segways are the most exhilarating and relaxing way to soak in the beauty of Perth.
Cruise the beautiful river foreshore, explore the sights of Rottnest or discover the history of Fremantle, as we provide fascinating stories about WA's rich history.
Segways are the most modern, self-balancing personal transporters there are. They will teach you the safest way to ride in any pedestrian environment and give you time to perfect your new skills before setting off on an unforgettable adventure.
Choose one of the specialised tours with an expert and entertaining guide. They are insightful and offer personalised service, the fun is thrown in for free.
It's the most fun you'll have standing up!
Segway guided tours are for 60 or 90 minutes. Firstly they train you to ride, they are easy to learn and fun to ride. A guide talks to you along the way through your radio headset. This keeps you informed about the route ahead but you also learn about lots of interesting facts on your journey and share a joke or two.
Often you will see wildlife on route and there is always time to stop and take a photo or two on the Segway Tours. Dolphins in the Swan River, black swans in the parklands with their young chicks and there is always the Quokka selfie happening over on Rottnest.
Locals and visitors alike enjoy the tours as Perth has changed so much & there is always something to learn. They have the most informative tours, the best guides and you only need an hour or so to do a Segway Tour.
