    Fantastic and fun way to see a peaceful bit of Alaska.
    Kelly_L, Sep 2023
    It was a great tour - with a very knowledgeable guide. I was pleased to be away from the hustle of Juneau and to experience a more peaceful experience on Douglas Island. Highly recommend!

    The scenery was amazing, loved the hike through the rain forest and our tour guide Mary Ann was a lot of fun…highly recommend the tour, it took us just a few minutes to learn how to ride the segways.

    We had a blast with Maria and Lucas. They were a delight. You can tell they love their job. Very knowledgeable and especially patient with the newbies. 5*.
    Breathtaking
    Jolene_H, Aug 2023

    Love this Segway tour! Repeat customers!
    RebeccaWeiChi_W, Aug 2023
    We first took this Segway tour in May with Lucas and Carli and we had such a great time that we came back in August with Carli. Lucas and Carli are wonderful and so knowledgeable. We used one of Lucas’ jokes on the cruiseship and won a deck of cards! :) Highly recommend this tour company. They are a wonderful bunch of people!

    Fun, friendly staff, stunning views
    Sarah_E, Jul 2023
    Maria and Kacie were friendly and upbeat. We got some individual practice with the segways and then rode down a quiet two lane road on north Douglas Island with spectacular views. I wish I had brought a GoPro to wear. We took a couple of breaks to view stretch our legs and walked down through the rainforest and enjoyed some quiet time on the beach. One of my favorite excursions.

    Very misleading you roll the segues down the road and then you get off and walk through a rain forest
    Duane_G, Jul 2023
    This was very misleading. It’s not rain forest Segway. You ride the Segway on the road then you get off and walk down into a rain forest. I would like a refund no where did you say it was walking down into the rainforest I had knee surgery and unable to do so your hose. Kate and Maria were very good but this is a very misleading ad
    Response from Host, Aug 2023
    I understand your expectations were not met. We work hard and we have met and exceeded the expectations of over 2000 guests this summer with more 5 star reviews than I can personally respond to. VIATOR - Trip Advisor tour description states very clearly, “…then hop off your Segway and walk a short 7 minute trail to a secluded beach”. We hope the rest of your Alaska trip was pleasant and provided a host of memories. Kind regards.
    Whale watching from a Segway!!
    Charles_O, Jun 2023
    We got picked up by Chris the owner. Even tough it was just my wife and I they still honored the trip. Along the way Chris gave us some very interesting history of Juneau. Mia, our young guide was enthusiastic and also educational. We actually saw a humpbacked whale a few hundred yards away! Highly recommend this Segway trip. Fun and nice people

    A Must Do
    Windy_g, Jun 2023
    This is a must do. Our group of 8 had a blast and all said thry would do it again. Great time in the Alaskan air. You will do a short trek in the woods so bring a walking stick if needed.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    So many 5 star reviews, I have not been able to keep up with responding to them all! Thank you for your kind comments, I am sure others will appreciate them and will help them make the decision to experience a tour with iRide Alaska!!
    Segway Fun in Rainy Juneau
    Melanie_J, Jun 2023
    Our Segway Tour was great. In spite of the inclimate weather our guide, Olissa, shared her love of Alaska. She provided a wealth of information as we trekked through the beautiful rain forest. We would recommend this tour to anyone. It was a lot of fun. Thank you, Olissa!

    Fun segway tour!
    Kimberly_C, May 2023
    I booked this excursion for our stop in Juneau (Royal Caribbean Quantum of the Seas 7 day cruise). Carly & Jeran were awesome, knowledgeable guides. It was my first time on a segway; they were so patient with us, even though one of my friends was very nervous. The views were incredible and the hike was fun and educational. I'd definitely recommend!
    Response from Host, May 2023
    Who knew Segways were the secret to conquering nervousness? Carly and Jeran deserve an award for Segway therapy! They deserve a Nobel Prize for Segway patience, and we'll campaign for it. Plus, the incredible views and educational hike were just bonuses. iRide Alaska: making nervous friends glide and guides legendary!
    Best Segway tour ever
    Jessica_w, May 2023
    Amazing tour guides did a wonderful job! Loved every minute of our Segway tour of Juneau Alaska. Would definitely do it again

    Mediocre
    Lisa_A, Aug 2022
    Great Rain forest trail. Non event on the waterfall and stop at the inlet. Our guide was not very informative.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Lisa, thank you for your comments. The primary reason for the two stops you mentioned is for guests to rest their feet. The rainforest trail is the gem of this tour, we are glad you enjoyed it.
    Our favorite Alaska excursion
    Armi_S, Aug 2022
    It was our first time to ride a Segway and this tour did not disappoint. Ruben met us all with our tour guide, Bridget to help us get acquainted with our segways - they were both very patient and took extra care to ensure we are all comfortable with navigating our personal rides. Bridget then took all of us (party if 6) to an amazing tour of the island and along the way, the views were amazing and breathtaking! It allowed us to see the island from a different perspective and had a good balance of enjoying the fresh air and scenery while on the Segway and a little bit of exercise when walking thru the forest. This was our family’s favorite Alaska excursion! Thank you Ruben for great communication from start to finish and to Bridget for giving us an unforgettable experience!
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    It brings a great deal of joy to know of all of your shore tours, ours Segway Tour was your favorite! Thanks for your kind wonderful review.
    Fun time
    Timothy_M, Aug 2022
