Excellent way to see Kilkenny, the tour was really enjoyable and the segways were so much fun! Would definitely do it again if I come back for a visit! Great value and time well spent!

I went on this tour around Kilkenny City. I would really recommend it as it’s both fun and interesting. The segway’s were all new and safety gear and instructions were very carefully given by our tour guide Michael. It’s a great way to find all the hidden gems of Kilkenny City and also learning about the history as trying to find them on foot would take quite some time. 10/10 from me.!!

The Segway tour is a great way to see kilkenny's tourist attractions within a small group. Michael was a great guide, he was personal and had a laugh with us as well as giving us insight to all the history of Kilkenny. At first we were nervous going on the segways as we has never done it before but Michael went through it all with us before we hit the streets of Kilkenny. On the training grounds we had time to practice at our own pace and get comfortable on the segways on flat ground, also going over rough terrain. It is definitely an experience I will remember. At the end of the tour Michael also recommended the Hungry Moose for food, it was delicious. If you are going to Kilkenny, you should definitely book in to do a Segway tour with Michael. Michael puts his all into making his customers enjoy Kilkenny.

Had an amazing tour with Michael through Kilkenny! Michael was friendly, knowledgeable, and so interesting! We learned so much about the history of Kilkenny in an exciting way. This wonderful tour showed us all of the main sights in Kilkenny in 2 hours- would have taken us days to see it by foot. Michael encouraged us to ask questions, make stops when we saw something we were interested in, and to have fun! 10/10 would recommend. I went with my mom and we had a total blast! Thank you Michael!!!!

My wife and I booked a tour with Kilkenny Segway Tour on our trip to Ireland. I purposely booked the tour for the first day we arrived in Kilkenny. I thought it would be an interesting way to get around quickly and become familiar with the next town on our trip. The tour did not disappoint. Michael was an excellent tour guide and we enjoyed his stories about the different landmarks in the city. My wife was a little nervous on the Segway at first and Michael was very supportive and proceeded at the pace we were comfortable at. This was a unique and fun experience and I would highly recommend the tour.

Me and my family of 5 did a Segway tour with Michael and it was so much fun. I was honestly very nervous about getting on a Segway but after just 10 minutes of the practice portion of the tour it was very easy. I would definitely recommend this tour as a good way to see all of Kilkenny!

My wife and I don’t get away as often as we like anymore. With three kids who have busier schedules than us, we find ourselves spending more time on them than we do us So when an opportunity came up to visit Doonbeg, I decided to turn it into a weekend away, after all it’s not too often the three kids get offloaded! So to break up the journey from Armagh to Clare, Kilkenny seemed to be a nice halfway point on the journey for a Friday stopover When my wife and I first met, we chose dates that brought us out of the comfort zone and were quirky and fun, so I set about searching for something in Kilkenny that ticked those boxes, and to be honest as hard as I looked I couldn’t find anything that came close to Segway Sights We only had a day in Kilkenny, and in hindsight, I don’t see how we could’ve taken in the whole city and it’s history in that day without Segway Sights! I didn’t realise the history, stories, architecture and culture that the city was steeped in until we completed our tour, and that is testament to just how fantastically planned out, thought through and delivered the actual tour and concept was It’s rare I would ever want to do the same thing twice but if we ever go back, I’d maybe get another 1hr fix of the tour. The 2hr tour was perfect, crammed full of info, loads of ground covered and never got bored. Between sights and tunnels and castles and winding streets, nowhere was out of bounds Michael was so knowledgable and patient. He answered all my nerdy questions whilst still keeping my wife’s attention who wouldn’t be as enthralled with the facts as I would be which in itself is a talent worthwhile lol Look Kilkenny is a great place, buzzing and vibrant, and all the rest of it... but it is an even better destination with this facility on offer!!! Worth every penny and more... we genuinely can’t recommend this tour enough It’s fun, it’s unique, it’s a great way to scope the place out for a longer stay and a great way to explore everything when tight for time, it’s relaxed and informative What a great asset in the crown of modern Kilkenny

This was one of the best guided tours I have ever taken. Michael our tour guide was fantastic and knew so much about the history and culture of Kilkenny. We first started out with training, where each of us was carefully guided and looked after so that we all felt comfortable before going on the tour. The tour itself took in all the main sights of the city and we heard stories about the origins of Kilkenny, it's medieval history, & some contemporary history too. Travelling around Kilkenny on the Segways is fantastic fun and allows you to see and hear so much in such a small amount of time. I cannot recommend this tour enough, just try it out you will not be disappointed.

Had a fabulous day with Segway Sights, thank you Michael for all your advise in training us, with 12 women it was a tough job lol.... we had a great day, highly recommended ◇

This tour was so much fun! We got to explore parts of the city that we would never have seen and Michael has a wealth of knowledge. I felt safe at all times; the segway was very easy to maneuver, and within minutes I was zipping around like a pro! Don't miss out on this tour!!!

Michael was a great guide. We met him at his business location and got trained how to use the segways and off we went. The information he shared at each location we visited was very interesting. Our teenage children really enjoyed the tour and even remembered some of the things Michael taught us about Kilkenny. We could have done an entire day with Michael taking in the sites. Thank you for sharing beautiful Kilkenny with my family.

Booked the 2 hour Segway tour before going down to Kilkenny for the weekend. Great overall experience and tour guide, Mick, is a sound man! Segway is very easy to ride and route gives you great views of all the historical landmarks within the city. Mick gives great explanations of each site too. It was the highlight of the weekend away

We took the Segway Tour with Michael in Kilkenny when we were visiting from Dublin. You may think this tour is only for tourists coming to the country but it definitely is not . The tour can be enjoyed by anyone . We had a great time on it and really enjoyed Michael's tour. He's a friendly guide and very patient . The Segways are great for zipping around the city and you take in all the main sights it has to offer . The Segways are really easy to use. This is my second time in Kilkenny and I will definitely be recommending this tour to everyone. Keep up the good work Michael .

I would highly recommend this to anyone as a wonderful way to see the all the sights in a very efficient and fun way!

I happened to find this tour on Groupon. Michael did an amazing job taking us around Kilkenny and telling us about the history. We had originally planned on doing the tour and heading out to our next destination, but because of this tour and Michael we ended up spending more time in Kilkenny. Michael was amazing and knowledgeable. I highly recommend for people to take this tour, you see so much in a short amount of time and then you can go back and see what you want to see!

This was an amazing way to see Kilkenny and learn the history. Michael was so knowledgeable and helpful when we were lost trying to find the location (we were lost a lot the first day). This was a wonderful way to get around and get a feel for the town and then make a mental note as to what you would like to go back and see later. I would recommend this to anyone that may be interested or going to Kilkenny
