My wife and I did the morning tour on 25th August which is an amazing time to visit Cairns. Craig was our tour guide and was such a friendly and knowledgeable guide. The ninebots were so much fun to ride and would defiantely recommend this tour to all. Trip advisor has hundreds of reviews
I was late and missed the tour I had booked. Craig and Damien accommodated me the next morning, and would have even if I had been the only one on the tour that morning. Two more showed up for the tour I did take, and we were zipping around on the Ninebot Segways in no time. It also feels perfectly safe. Craig obviously loves his work, and loves meeting people. He is a lot of fun. The route through the botanical gardens is lovely. The only thing that they could add is a little time to just play around zipping on the segways to have fun. However on the way back, we were able to go as fast as the machines will go. Cairns is a beautiful place to ride one of these.
