- Are Segways safe?
The Segway has a self-balancing system which makes it extremely safe. The rider is in complete control on this intuitive two-wheeled vehicle as he/she controls the pace, even when going downhill, and the direction of movement with ease. These characteristics make the Segway a much safer alternative to bicycles, scooters and other such two-wheeled vehicles.
- Is there an instructional session before the Segway tour?
The guide gives a, in-depth 15 minute instructional session before each tour. There is also a trial run for the group which is done in an open and safe location. The tour begins only when the guide sure that everyone feels comfortable with the Segway and can control it with ease.
- How fast are Segways?
The Segway is capable of moving at speeds of 20 km/h [13.5 mph], however the law in Israel requires that Segways move no faster than 13.5 km/h. That being said, our tour guide sets a pace that is the most comfortable for everyone in the group.
