My wife was very hesitant to go on the tour. But after she got on the Segway and our guide explained it, she started to feel more comfortable. Less than halfway through the tour she was thoroughly enjoying herself. The Segway is very easy to control, and as long as you don't get foolish, as one guy did, it is effortless, safe and FUN. The other thing is that we covered a little over 6 miles, and without the Segway, it would have been much harder on us and we could not have seen so many sights.
