Chiquita Road Wine Tasting Segway Tour from Healdsburg

Take a breathtaking tour, gliding through the Dry Creek Valley in Healdsburg.

It's a bit hilly, so typically only people who have had some prior Segway riding experience are taken. There are some exceptions to this, so don't hesitate to ask for the tour if it's what you really want!

You will stop for a break at the Ridge Winery, where great photo opportunities abound, and refreshments are served. There is a marvelous tasting room with a gorgeous view, where riders can taste a small sample of this winery's fine offerings.

Enjoy the beautiful rolling hills of Chiquita Road on a Segway Tour from Healdsburg!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Segway? How does it work? -- The Segway Human Transporter is the first of its kind - a self-balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do. Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway sports high-tech gyroscopes that monitor your balance 100 times a second and automatically respond to your body's movements. To move forward, the rider simply leans forward. To stop or move backwards, the rider leans back slightly. The rider glides smoothly as the Segway senses where you want to go. You will use Lean Steer i2 Segways on this tour.

How do I learn to ride a Segway? -- All first timers are required to take an on-board training session to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Training time is part of the overall tour time. During the busy summer season training time may be slightly longer. Riders are trained on safe Segway operation, emergency stops, safety cone course and the "Share the Road" policy. Training includes a short safety video. All riders are required to wear a helmet.

Can I test drive a Segway for 5 minutes? -- Test drives are not offered. Take a tour - it's fun!

Who can ride a Segway? Are Segways safe for children or people with disabilities? What about pregnant women? -- Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike - it's intuitive, but nobody is born knowing how to operate it. That's why 20 to 30 minutes of training are enforced, so that you can get familiar with the device. A Segway is not an ideal mode of touring for people with some mobility issues. All guests must be able to easily and quickly step on and off the Segway without any assistance, which requires physical abilities similar to climbing and descending stairs without assistance or use of a handrail. Segway riding is not recommended for pregnant women. Unfortunately, pregnant women will not be permitted to participate.

Important Notes

Safety is very important. All guests must be age 12 or older and weight at least 100 pounds. If you book a tour and any of your guests do not meet the minimum age and weight criteria, they will not be allowed on the tour and you will not be given a refund. You will have the opportunity to practice on the Segways until you feel comfortable.
