We had a great experience with Michael. He quickly explained how to use the segways and then led us on an informative tour of Kilkenny. He was able to provide information on all the main historical sites and gave us good historical overview of the city. The segways were fun and easy to use.

Michael's tour was very interesting. He was friendly and cheerful and related to us very well. Most importantly, he knows the history of Kilkenny very well, and he strongly encouraged participants to ask questions. One downside - no fault of Michael's - it was lightly raining when we started. He gave us the choice ahead of time to continue with the tour - or not. We went, and I'm glad we did!

This was truly a great experience. We had a group of 6 and most had never ridden a Segway. Michael took his time to go over all of the safety aspects and taught each of us how to ride the segways safely. We were provided a helmet and an earpiece so we could hear about instructions or history along the way. We went down some beautiful paths along the river. We stopped and were allowed some time in a couple of beautiful churches. Michael gave us so much history about the beautiful city along the route. I highly recommend this tour. Our ages were 27-66 so it is good for all!!

A lovely introduction to the sights and history of Kilkenny. Everyone we rode past looked a bit envious that we were zooming around. We had a lovely time.

Michael was a great tour guide! He had a great depth of knowledge of the city and his instructions on the segway were great. I like how he led the tour in chronological order. It was a great experience. I really enjoyed it.

Michael was an exceptional tour guide. His humor and knowledge of history combined with his accent made it a memorable experience. The Segway tour is a way to experience a large area of the city with many highlights in a two-three hour period. We highly recommend this tour! (Family of 4 from America- Maryland)
