    My husband & I had the pleasure of going on our first Segway tour this past weekend. This family run business is top notch and I would highly recommend it to anybody. They spent a lot of time training us on how to use the machine which made me feel safe and confident once we headed on the tour. We would periodically stop to take pictures & hear more about the history of the different homes, parks, and lakes that we passed. We look forward to going on the canalside tour with this group next summer!!!

    100% Awesome!!

    Purchased a private tour with the company. They took
    the time to train us on the Segway while entertaining us with their upbeat
    humor. For anyone who has never been on a Segway before this is the most
    important part of the day. You learn how to balance yourself on the Segway, how
    to maneuver around cones designed to mimic obstacles on your outdoor adventure,
    and, most importantly, how to slow down to a stop.

    The adventure did not
    stop there. After gearing up with helmets for safety, we took to the streets of
    Buffalo and learned about the history of the Pan American Exposition. We were
    able to stop for photo opportunities. Along the way they continued to provide a
    wealth of knowledge about the area and its history. Humor was the driving force
    of the tour and it was a welcomed experience. They were able to tailor the tour
    to personal interests/inquiries about the area as well.

    There's no other
    touring company like this one around. Take advantage of this wonderful
    opportunity. It's great for couples, families, friends, and much

    We took the Segway tour at Disney's EpCot before they were discontinued.
    We also took the Segway tour in downtown St. Louis.
    After taking the Segway tour offered by The Buffalo Touring Company
    we can say it was the best, most interesting and fun of our three adventures.

    Had a great time learning about the history of Buffalo and seeing some historical sites with a different view. Riding the Segway was so much fun!! Brandon and Norm did a thorough job of training us so everyone felt comfortable. Loved that we had a small group. Very personal tour and they spent time answering all our history questions. Would recommend to all! You'll love it!

  • Bill Hogan (Tuesday, August 11 15 01:29 pm EDT)

    Our family had a great time this past weekend. A beautiful day and just a great historical tour of the area around the history museum and Delaware Park. We highly recommend it...Segway training was awesome!!

  • JoAnne Viapiano (Friday, July 10 15 06:07 am EDT)

    Took the tour in celebration of my husband's birthday. This was the second time we were on a Segway Tour (previously in New Hampshire). WE HAD A BALL!!! Norm and Brandon gave extensive safety training prior to our tour and we climbed on with no inhibitions ( and no mishaps along the way).
    We upgraded to a private tour and learned things about Buffalo that we did not know, even being life-long residents.
    Have already recommended the tour to our friends!!!

  • Doug Thompson (Monday, June 29 15 09:46 pm EDT)

    The Segway tour was terrific. I was very impressed with the training- very thorough with a strong emphasis on safety. The tour itself was extensive and eye-opening. What a beautiful city Buffalo is! I highly recommend this tour to locals and visitors alike.

  • Barbara (Saturday, June 27 15 06:20 am EDT)

    Hi Norm, Brandon & Mom!
    Last week was the most fun I had in a long while. Never would have imagined myself on a Segway. My brother Victor tricked me and you all were in on the surprise and I loved it once I was so properly and patiently trained. You guys turned my fear into a wonderful experience. This 61 year old is ready to roll again! Thank you Victor, Inez, Norm & Brandon.

  • Kari G (Tuesday, June 09 15 06:38 am EDT)

    Phenomenal tour!! One of the best tours I've ever been on. The segways are so fun to ride and norm and Brandon are fantastic tour guides! I grew up here and learned history of the area I never knew. A must try tour!

  • Bill Nutty (Tuesday, October 28 14 09:13 pm EDT)

    We had a great time. Training was good and anybody can do this. The tour is interesting and takes you to places you don't normally see driving around the city. Segways are a lot of fun.

  • Susan (Monday, August 18 14 09:26 pm EDT)

    Thoroughly enjoyed our Segway tour of Buffalo. Our tour guides were Norm and Brandon and they were outstanding! They gave us a 30-minute safety class before the tour started and took the time to make sure each of us was comfortable before starting off on our tour of the Delaware Park area (site of the 1901 Pan American Exhibition). Riding a Segway makes it easy and effortless to cover much more territory than we could possibly do on foot. As we sped by walking tourists, they watched us with great envy! Several people asked if they could join the tour midway. This tour was incredible. I don't think it could have been better in any way. Riding on the Segway was quick, easy, breezy, and fun. Don’t miss this tour when you visit Buffalo!

  • Nancy Cooper (Tuesday, August 12 14 07:49 pm EDT)

    An awesome way to see Buffalo's historical area. I grew up in Hamburg and thought the tour was fantastic. Not to be missed!!

  • Ricky (Wednesday, July 16 14 02:00 pm EDT)

    What a great tour and that too on a Segway!!!! My sister was here from India and I wanted to take her on a tour she would never forget. This was awesome. So you go on a segway throughout Buffalo, places like Delaware Park, near the water..etc. All the staff are so polite. They will first have a class where they teach you how to function the segway and then only when you are completely confident do they take you out on the tour. They will give you water, gatorade if you get thirsty and let you take pics as well. If you are in Buffalo, and defy want a tour and not the old fashioned bus tours, take this SEGWAY tour for sure.

  • Gay and Rich Hardoby (Saturday, July 05 14 12:31 pm EDT)

    Norm and Brandon took us on a great tour of North Buffalo. The Segway instruction was comprehensive and thorough. They took their time with us until we were comfortable on our own. They're really fun and easy to ride and we had a terrific time. We'll definitely go again and bring friends. Thanks guys, and Cheryl too for taking care of all the gear.

  • Josephine Burke (Friday, May 16 14 10:42 am EDT)

    My son came in from Michigan to spend Mother's Day with me and it was also his birthday so I wanted to do something special for him. I surprised him with a 2 hour Segway tour and it was the best 2 hours we spent over the weekend. What fun and what great tour guides Norm and his son Brandon are. We saw things in Buffalo that we had never seen just riding by them on the highway; the Segway is very easy to ride and control; it's a MUST if you're looking for something special to do this summer; you won't be sorry you took the tour.

  • Wayne Burke (Wednesday, May 14 14 02:15 pm EDT)

    Norm & Brandon provided an extensive training session (easily 20 minutes) so that my 75 year old mother and I were completely confortable by the time we started the tour. Even as a native of Buffalo, I learned something about the history of the area. Would definitely recommend this outing.

  • Erica Chappell (Wednesday, October 30 13 09:47 am EDT)

    We had an AMAZING time on the Segways with Norm and Brandon. It was so cool to ride them, it felt like flying. Buffalo is really so beautiful and full of history. The free museum ticket was a great bonus. The tour along with riding the Segway is double the fun and excitement! We will definitely be doing this again. Thank you!

  • Bob Kuhns (Thursday, October 24 13 11:03 pm EDT)

    Great experience! Competent instruction and great guides. I would highly recommend BTC for anyone wanting to try the "Segway".

  • Nancy Herzbrun (Tuesday, October 15 13 03:00 pm EDT)

    My husband surprised me with a Segway tour for my birthday, and I wasn't sure if I would be able to do it...coordination isn't my middle name. As soon as we pulled up to the training area, Norm and Brandon not only had a Happy Birthday sign waiting for me, but they were very reassuring that I would have no problem. They were right! Within a few minutes, I was in the swing of things and had the best time ever!! I can't thank my husband for one of the BEST gifts ever, and Norm and Brandon made my day complete. There aren't enought adjectives to describe what a wonderful, fun and interesting time we had. I can't wait to do it again.

  • Barb Fritz (Wednesday, October 09 13 09:26 am EDT)

    I bought my husband a gift certificate for this experience for his birthday and had to buy one for myself. I was a little apprehensive as I am a little accident prone. Absolutely no worries! Norm and his son, Brandon, give a thorough training experience. They are both patient and kind. Within minutes we felt like pros on the Segway. What a blast! Our tour was beyond what we expected. Not only was it a Segway tour,but a brief Buffalo tour of the area around the History Museum including Hoyt Lake, Delaware Park, and an outside look at the Darwin Martin House.They even take a picture of you on the Segway and email it to you! So cool! We loved every second of our tour. It is so worth the price. We look forward to doing it again. This Buffalo experience should not be missed!

  • Paula (Thursday, October 03 13 10:23 am EDT)

    I had a wonderful time. Learned some very interesting facts about Buffalo. Thought I would never be able to do this, but the training by Brandon and Norm was great and I got the hang of it in no time. I would do this again and again.

  • Lucas Lorentz (and Kristen "Lorentz") (Thursday, August 29 13 09:03 am EDT)

    I cannot say enough good things about this experience. I found out about this through a fellow co-worker and decided to give it a try for my (newly made) fiances birthday. I put together a little flyer and stuck it in her birthday card. When shesaw what we would be doing her first reaction was excitement and the second reaction was "how did you(I) find out about this?"

    This adventure is well worth it! Norm and Brandon could not be two better guides suited for this. They take the time to not only make you comfortable on the Segway but are also very Intuitive with how the route is designed to keep you moving and always looking aroud at the beautiful surroundings.

    Everyone that lives in the area or is visiting the area needs to take advantage of this and help spread the word. I took a STACK of cards and got rid of them in 1 day.

    We look forward to coming back again and again. Thanks Norm and Brandon!!! Lets not forget Mrs. Norm!!!!

  • Carol (Wednesday, August 28 13 02:33 pm EDT)

    Had a wonderful time. Learned some very interesting facts about Buffalo. Thought I would never be able to Segway, but the training was great and I got the hang of it in no time. Everyone should have this on their Bucket List.

  • Sherry Becker (Sunday, August 25 13 07:56 am EDT)

    Highly recommend this tour. Norm and Brandon do a fantastic job of giving Buffalo history while taking an amazing ride on a Segway. A Great Buffalo experience. Thanks Norm for bring this to Buffalo

  • Chris and Mike Leavitt (Monday, August 05 13 02:08 pm EDT)

    This was so much fun we did it twice. We highly recommend this experience as we found it to be fun, informative and extremely safe. Norm and Brandon are just swell and do a fine job of preparing and coaching us thru the whole trip.

  • Mike (Wednesday, July 31 13 10:21 am EDT)

    Great night. Lots of fun and Norman and Brandon were superb! Highly recommend this for a night of relaxing enjoyment and many laughs.

  • Dawn Barnas (Monday, July 29 13 09:51 am EDT)

    This is the best way to tour Buffalo. Norm and Brandon are excellent teachers and so knowledgeable about Buffalo history. It was a very enjoyable day. I would love to take another tour in the fall when the leaves are changing.

  • Nancy Shea (Monday, July 29 13 08:51 am EDT)

    Great time!! Very professional and entertaining. I would highly recommend this to anyone or any organization.

  • Mary (Sunday, July 21 13 03:42 pm EDT)

    Thank you Norm and Brandon for the adventure today with my family and friends. We all had a great time and couldn't ask for better trainers and tour guides.

  • Donna Dickman (Sunday, June 30 13 06:32 pm EDT)

    The best birthday present ever. I have wanted to try a segway since they first came out. My husband Dennis & I had so much fun. After a learning session we were off on an adventure. Brandon & Norm couldn't have made it any more fun & historically informative than they did. I would recommend this tour for everyone.

  • Peggy Buckel (Friday, June 28 13 11:00 pm EDT)

    I grew up in North Buffalo, but moved to Rochester 40 some years ago. Norm & Brandon did an excellent job showcasing the area as well as showing us some of the historic sites in Buffalo. The trip brought back many memories of my years growing up in Buffalo. Norm & Brandon are great tour directors, teachers and guides. Segways are easy to learn to ride which what makes it such an exciting and enjoyable experience. Thanks for a wonderful trip. It made a great birthday present for one of the members of our group.

  • Alice (Wednesday, June 26 13 09:30 pm EDT)

    Riding a segway is awesome in and of itself. Add to it the friendliness and knowledge of Norm & his son, Brandon, and it makes for a unique way to learn about the history of North Buffalo.

  • George Adams (Thursday, May 23 13 11:12 am EDT)

    Every phase of Buffalo Touring's Segway riding experience is fun! The location is geographically and historically perfect.
    In a matter of minutes you'll feel safe and comfortable on the scooter. This tour is so good, I'd recommend buying season tickets!

  • Dan, Shelley, Max and Emily (Wednesday, May 22 13 09:37 pm EDT)

  • George and Sharon (Sunday, November 04 12 09:26 pm EST)

    My husband surprised me with the Segway tour for my birthday. What a riot! Norm and Brandon were very attentive teachers, making sure we were comfortable, and then off we went. We had so much fun, even though it was cold! I would recommend this to ANYONE. We wanted to just ride the Segways home! A great way to spend an afternoon, and also we got a great history lesson from Brandon about all the sights we visited. Highly recommended!!

  • Abby (Friday, October 12 12 04:01 pm EDT)

    Family took the very fun tour over a chilly Columbus Day weekend and the touring company had thought of everything, including gloves to lend us. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

  • Jackie Ghosen (Wednesday, October 10 12 04:00 pm EDT)

    My sister was visiting from Cleveland, so I took her on a tour of Buffalo "Segway style." What a great time! Brandon and Norm were knowledgeable and fun, and the Segway's were a riot!

  • Paul Friedrich (Sunday, September 23 12 11:25 am EDT)

    It was super. I wish I could have broken away and taken the Segway home. It felt like a part of me and I hated to part with it.
    The tour was excellent and very interesting. I hope to do it again with more friends and see other parts of the city.
    Two thumbs up!

  • Richard & Terry (Saturday, September 08 12 07:38 pm EDT)

    What a great time we had on our tour. Training was thorough and complete. We had no concerns after working with Norm and Brandon. It was a wonderful way to experience the sites around Delaware Park. Brandon was a great guide and shared a lot of knowledge about the history of the area. We would recommend taking this Segway to all our friends.

    The tour was great and Brandon is very well informed with historical information on the tour.

  • Joe H. (Monday, August 06 12 07:29 pm EDT)

    The Buffalo Touring Company has made it fun to see many Buffalo attractions on a Segway! Norm and Brandon took a great amount of time to make sure that you learned how to ride the Segway on your own. It was a long tour that took us around Delaware Park and many other great places. You also learn a lot of interesting facts as you go along the tour. I had a great time and highly recommend this tour!

  • Bonnie (Friday, August 03 12 01:41 pm EDT)

    What a blast! I highly recommend this tour to both Buffalo visitors and Buffalo residents.

    I took my sister on a Saturday tour and it was one of the best experiences. First, it is easy to schedule with three time options and quick response time from the coordinators. Second, the staff is more than just instructors and guides - they are entertainers who really care about your enjoyment. Third, I learned things about Buffalo I had never heard before. The tour was personal, intimate, enjoyable and educational. What more could you ask for

    Congrats Buffalo Touring Company for making the Seqway Tour a highlight of Buffalo's offerings! We will be back
