These tours would be ideal for seniors or those who are unable to walk a lot yet still want to see around and be able to stop often, unlike a bus tour of an area.



Segways have the following tours available all year round:

PERTH TOURS
Segways are the most exhilarating and relaxing way to see the beauty of Perth. Cruise the beautiful river foreshore, soaking up the sights, or stop for photos as you hear fascinating yarns about Perth's rich history, dynamic boom times and its breathtaking plans for the future.
