Why Do Tours With Us?

Truly experiencing the great outdoors in the Northern Territory couldn't be easier than on a Segway. Segway Tours Sales And Leasing NT is the official Segway dealer distributorship and Segway tour operator in town.

Here's why our tours should be at the top of your list:

  1. Segways are seriously good value. Affordable. Unforgettable. Quiet and eco-friendly. No drivers licence is needed and they are suitable for anyone 12 years or older. Easy! This is the best fun for families!
  2. You can take control of a Segway in minutes. It's virtually intuitive and we include a brief training session to get you started. In no time, you'll be off exploring the Esplanade, touring East Point, or gliding into the sunset at Darwin's Botanical Gardens.
  3. Segway Tours Sales & Leasing NT is a member of Tourism Top End. We can put together tour packages for individuals and groups. So there'll be something for everyone, we are always developing new ideas for tours. In fact, there's a new tour in the pipeline right now.

We Can Change The Environment

More and more people are switching to the Segway. For short journeys typically made by car, a Segway PT (Personal Transporter) is the smart, green eco-friendly choice that is also a lot of fun.

The purely electric Segway is 11-times more efficient than the average car. Compared to even the most miserly scooter, an environmentally friendly Segway is more than 3-times as efficient.

A Segway relies on battery power. But even while recharging its battery from a common wall outlet, the Segway emits 14 times less greenhouse gas than a car. Don't believe us? Read for yourself how Segways give off Zero-Emissions during operation!

If 10 per cent of America's 900 million car trips a day (half of which are less than 5 miles long, as estimated by the EPA) were replaced by 3-mile Segway rides, here's what we would SAVE:

  • 23,469,553 litres of petrol LESS every day.
  • 129,727 tonnes of CO emissions LESS every day.

Reduce your carbon footprint, ride a Segway instead.
