2. What is a Segway?
The Segway Personal Transporter (PT) is a one of a kind self balancing device designed to go anywhere people go. The transporter is amazingly easy to use and operate. The Segway PT has five gyroscopes that automatically react to your body’s movements, when it should speed up, slow down or stop.
In August 2006 Segway Inc. unveiled the newest models: i2 and X2 with the innovative Leansteer™ technology and wireless InfoKey™. The new Segway models move in any direction that the rider leans into. The rider stands between the two wheels on a small platform while he/she holds onto a T- bar (handlebar). Segway PT’s operate along pedestrian pathways and walkways and do not require you to possess a license to ride one. They are safe and fun devices. Riding a Segway PT is the best way to get around town and see sights of interest.
3. What Segway models do PST offers for its tours?
At Paphos Segway Tour we offer the latest in gliding technology. We offer the newest of Segway models the i2 and x2 PTs in a beautiful array of colours. Both models provide hours of fun filled sightseeing, seamless rides and the easiest method of riding that you have experienced.
4. How safe is it to ride a Segway?
Segways are very safe to ride because of the high-technology that they have. Our thorough hands-on training, which you receive from our experienced, certified tour guides is enough to make you experts too and that makes you feel comfortable and knowledgeable about this unique device. Provided that you follow the tour guide instructions and you ride sensibly you will certainly have a safe and enjoyable glide. Adding to that our Segways are equipped with tail lights and we always provide helmets on our tours. Our routes are smooth and clear providing you with a seamless glide.
5. What if after training I cannot ride the Segway?
Having years of experience performing Segway Tours and training people, we can assure you that this event is very unlikely. We give every single one of tour participants a thorough hands-on training session (even those who have experienced Segway before), and we insist in training our guests until every single one of them feels comfortable and confident on using these unique devices. As such, in our experience it is really rare that anyone cannot master the Segway after completing the training routine. In any case if any of our guests feel stressed or particularly worried, or decide that this activity is not for them, we don’t force them to participate and give them a full refund.
6. How do I book a Segway tour?
You can reserve your Segway tour by calling us directly: +(357) 7000 7211 or by clicking here. A minimum of 24 hours notice is required. If you show up for an on the spot or a last minute tour, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate you for a tour at that moment, so please call in advance and make your reservation. If you prefer to come in and book a reservation, we are located at Apostolou Pavlou Avenue just steps from Paphos Harbour (across main harbour bus station, and opposite Hondros Taverna Restaurant).
7. What is the process for my Segway tour?
Once you have booked your tour and it has been confirmed, you will need to arrive at our store at the designated arrival time (at least 30 minutes in advance of departure) (See time table @ Tour Prices) Please be sure to bring the required forms of identification, Passport/ID and at least one major credit card (preferably the one you used to book the tour). Other Segway tour companies require a pre-authorized deposit on the Segway you ride, and we do not. After you complete the forms, our certified tour guide will give you a thorough training until he sees that you are an expert (comfortable) like him. As soon as everyone is comfortable with the training you are ready to roll.
8. What should I bring with me?
You should bring with you a camera and a small bottle of water. When it’s really hot out, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and a pair of sunglasses. During the cooler seasons it’s important to wear an extra layer of clothing and consider bringing gloves and a scarf, although Cyprus offers sunshine almost throughout the year. If it looks like rain we can provide you with a plastic rain poncho, or you can take advantage of our Rain Check policy and reschedule your tour.
9. What if I have booked a tour and it rains on that day?
Segway Personal Transporters are all-weather. Tours can operate in rain or shine, but at Paphos Segway Tour we run tours ONLY on a shiny, warm, sunny day and not like other companies that they run business even when the weather is heavily raining.
Our Rain Check Policy allows you to reschedule your Paphos Segway Tour when it is raining. Your safety is our priority at Paphos Segway Tour and will not run a tour when it’s raining and jeopardize your safety for the sake of a tour
When it’s raining heavily we will not jeopardize your safety for the sake of a tour, because:
- It’s unsafe
- The tour will not be as enjoyable
- You will not be able to capture pictures as if it was nicer weather.
At Paphos Segway Tour’s discretion for the above obvious reasons when it’s raining heavily we have created the “RAIN CHECK POLICY”.
Customers not wishing to take their scheduled tour because of weather concerns or conditions, are allowed to reschedule (“Rain Check”). “Rain Checks” do not have an expiration date. This policy is designed to cater to out-of-towners who are unable to find a satisfactory date to reschedule to while still in Paphos on their current visit. They have the option of taking their tour at any future date when they will be in Paphos again, or they may transfer their tour to friends or family. This can be accomplished with a simple phone call. Sometimes when the rain is light, we can still provide the service but the final decision is on your hands. We give you the benefit of the doubt and at the same time a Rain Check with No expiration date.
