The Essentials

What is Segway PT?

  • Segway PT was invented by Dean Kamen in 2001. On “Good Morning America”, he showed the amazing capabilities of “the world’s first self-balancing human transporter.” The Segway has two wheels and can stand upright all by itself. It is a self-balancing machine that operates almost like a car.

Are there physical requirements or limitations?

  • Participants should be in average physical condition. The tour requires basic balance and full range of motion to navigate. There are no medical professionals on site and we therefore ask that you take your personal situation under consideration prior to booking a tour. Pregnant women are not allowed to take the tour.

Quechee Segway Tours - Gary Neil, owner of the Quechee Gorge Village, decided that Quechee needed to be spiced up a little bit. He came up with the brilliant idea to start a Segway company that would take people around the beautiful Quechee countryside and inform everyone about the impressive history of the area. That dream became a reality when Quechee Segway opened on Friday, June 19th, 2015. Since that day, Quechee Segway has been giving numerous tours that have resulted in big smiles and lots of laughs!
