Papeete is a very pretty town but also crowded and congested. Using a Segway to get around seemed like a great idea, and it was for me. My husband on the other hand had some problems operating the device and eventually took a tumble. I think the guide did and excellent job orientating us to the vehicle so the fault was all his( yes we are still talking but agree we may be getting a little too mature to try new fangled things!) There is a lot to see and do in Papeete, this was a good way to get the feel of the land.

Tour by Segway is a great idea! The Segway is very easy to ride and operate, I’ve never ridden one before. With the Segway we were able to cover a lot of ground very quickly and see many interesting places, sure beats walking. The tour guide even took us to a large courtyard zoom around and play on the Segways, it was a lot of fun. We are in our sixties, so it was a good choice for us.
