A Segway is a personal transportation device maneuvered mostly using body weight. Since the inception of Segways they have become a unique way to experience new places and now you can take a segway tour in Brisbane.
Using a Segway is easy to learn for almost anyone. Furthermore, it allows you to experience the beautiful sights and soaring views around you up close, all while being much faster and less tiresome than walking.
