Magic Broomstick Segway Tours
Accommodation DetailsWe run guided sightseeing tours and short rides on Genuine Segway Personal Transporters.
Having been in business for the past 12 years we have taught hundreds of people to ride so the chances are really high that you'll be able to easily learn too. As one of my tour guides says "once you've got the first wobbles over with and the first tentative ride on the training ground you'll realise it's not scary, it really is FUN." Then we'll be off touring the historic village of Devonport with it's many beaches, volcanic cones and spectacular views. Devonport is also home to our New Zealand Navy which also boasts an interesting and interactive Naval museum at Torpedo Bay in Devonport.
Devonport is located on Auckland's Waitemata Harbour only a 12 minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland City. Auckland is built on a volcanic field of at least 48 volcanic cones 3 of them in Devonport.
On our Segway Tours you will ride to the summit of these volcanic cones to marvel at the spectacular views of Auckland City and the Hauraki Gulf while also enjoying the uniquely awesome sensation of riding a Segway Personal Transporter.
During the 1880's military forts were built at the summit of 2 of the volcanic cones, North Head/Maungauika and Mt.Victoria/Takarunga. On the tours you will be able to explore the gun emplacements and tunnels which have become one of Auckland's best tourist attractions.
Your tour guide will give you interesting information and facts about these locations.
For those of you who only want to experience the ride we will take you for a short ride to one of our local beaches so you can test drive a Segway Personal Transport for yourself.
Guided tours and rides leave daily from Shop 17 (next to the Fullers Ferry Ticket Office) in the Devonport Ferry Terminal. To make sure we are available and to avoid disappointment, we strongly advise that you either book and pay online. Alternatively you can call or email us to book a time to suit.
