Kind of a kick! Had never done this before, so thought I’d give it a whirl. Darin, “thee” guide [(-:] was exceptional! Really took the time to make sure that ALL participants were comfortable, safe and “able” to pilot their vehicles. Also, VERY safe during the tour through the northern end of Lahaina town and up Lahainaluna. You ROCK, bruddah Darin!

4.5 stars! We had a very nice time on our tour of Lahaina with Darin. Very beautiful views and lots of fun “playtime”. He was extremely friendly and really seemed to enjoy his job. And the sunset was spectacular!
The only reason I didn’t give this attraction 5 stars is that I was really hoping to see a few landmarks pointed out. Don’t get me wrong; it was a very fun time that all ages of the family would enjoy. I just really wanted a little history lesson of sorts. I would recommend this tour for those looking for a unique experience in Maui.


We were on a cruise and booked Segway Maui on our own. We had the BEST time. Safety is #1 there. We saw a safety and instructional video then did training outside the store before going on the tour. John was our instructor and guide and couldn’t have been more wonderful. I was afraid of falling but John was patient and encouraging and so kind. We highly recommend Segway Maui and hope to take another tour with them the next time we visit Lahaina.

We had been to Maui before, and only had a day while our cruise was in port, so we decided to give this a try. Mark was our helpful and informative guide. We chose the Oceanside tour, which took away from the madding crowds of Lahaina and along the oceanfront towards Kaanapali. It was a great trip. Mark gave us history of th area and took lots of photos for us. It was easy to operate the Segway itself, and we had a chance to practice before we took off on the trip. Well worth a try!

This is so much fun, really reasonably priced and super easy to learn for first-timers. My son and I took a tour of Lahaina with John and he will show you spots you just might miss, along with the famous ones in the guide books. Our hour and a-half flew by–we’ll go for one of the longer tours next time. This is one road trip guaranteed to keep you smiling!

This is my second Segway review. I also posted one on Segway of Hawaii. To repeat a little bit, we’ve ridden segways in fun and exciting places (Old San Juan, Chicago by the Lake, NOLA, Nassau), and once again we were fortunate that my wife and I were the only ones on this tour. We signed up for the advanced tour, and once we were tested by Mark, our tour guide, we were packed in a van and driven up the coast to a nature preserve.

While this trip did not have the fantastic views of Diamond Head that our other tour had, this one was just plain fun! Mark pointed out some local trees and fauna. He had clearly done his research and knew interesting facts about various plants and locations.

This was a “hilly” ride, which is extremely fun on a Segway. At different points we could see other islands, and the view was beautiful. But just riding up and down the hills, in the preserve, was just plain fun. There was just the right amount of stops to keep our legs fresh but we just spent a couple hours riding. With the wind in your face, and sun and ocean, it was fabulous. I just can’t express in words how much fun we had. Both my wife and I commented that some tours are a lot of history, which is fine, because that’s why you’re doing the tour. This tour was just for the fun of riding a Segway.

Again, we took the advanced course, I’d recommend you take the city course, which is through Lahaina and very beautiful, if it’s your first or second time out

For those who have never ridden a segway and are wondering if you can do it, let me tell you, you can! My wife and I are both almost 60 and we love it. We try to do it on every cruise we are on. As long as you are within the weight limits (check with the place you are using, each one has different requirements based on the their segway model) and can stand upright for a couple hours, with breaks, you’ll do fine. You don’t have to have great balance, because the segway does that for you. I encourage everyone, at least try it once.

As you can tell, we had a great time. Again, I would have to say there are no “Cons” for this tour, only “Pros”! Note that if you take the advanced trip in the preserve it does take about 15 minutes to get there, so make sure you keep that in mind for timing. You still get the full amount of time on the Segway, so no worries.

Mark was a knowledgeable and congenial tour guide. Ask him how he got to Hawaii, it’s an interesting story!
