See Poole’s award-winning Upton Country Park which has 130 acres of parkland, shoreline and formal estate gardens in style with this guided Segway tour.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by your instructor who will issue you with safety equipment and run through a safety briefing. You will then take to your Segway and master the skills of the Segway in the practice area. Once everyone is feeling confident and your instructor is happy with your progress you will then venture into the gardens and woodland of Upton House and Country Park.
Glide through the grounds taking in the amazing view across Holes Bay. From here you will continue through the nature reserve where you will see an abundance of wildlife and plants, some of which are unique to this site. Go off the beaten path as you venture into Grove Woods, where you will see what these amazing machines can really do as you zap through the trees and up and down slopes on dirt tracks!

Yes I recommend this product.
I bought this as a birthday treat for my husband that could be shared with him by the whole family (ages 24-73!) and I'm so glad I did. We all thoroughly enjoyed exploring the park and the wonderful sensation of travelling effortlessly through its beautiful scenery. We rode on grass, tarmac, off-road through the woods and along gravel paths - the scenery changed constantly. Great length of session too - the instructor, John, was very encouraging and gave us plenty of time to become accustomed to the segways - by the end all of us felt really comfortable riding them. It was fantastic fun and was finished off with a superb cream tea that included sandwiches, cup cakes and scones - the whole experience was so much more than we'd expected and we'd recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure. Can't wait to go again!
