Magic Broomstick Tours
Since 2008 the guides at Magic Broomstick Tours have been teaching people to ride the sensational Segway Personal Transporter and taking guided tours around the waterfront, the beaches, the back streets and the volcanic cones to explore Auckland’s Historic Village of Devonport.
We know what it takes to teach people how to safely ride this “State of the Art” machine, to have FUN and explore all the best places that make Devonport Village unique and exciting.
I’ve been running the business since mid 2009, learning the ropes and being the tour guide. As the business has grown I have employed other Segway Tour Guides especially in the summer season. Meet your Guides here.
Fun Activities in Auckland
It’s human nature to be a little apprehensive when learning something totally new therefore your tour guide will take the time to individually help you through the process of learning to ride a Segway (it really is easy) and give you plenty of time to practice before you embark on your Segway Experience. Your Guide will be an experienced Segway Rider who is able to handle all conditions while keeping a watchful eye on you as you ride your Segway Personal Transporter.
Magic Broomstick Tours is committed to delivering a high quality of service and to giving you value for your money. Our aim is to keep you safe, to give you the most unique experience and to have lots of FUN as you explore the historic village of Devonport. See you on a Segway
Meet our incredible guides
Being a Segway guide for Magic Broomstick Segway Tours combines a lot of the things I love – fresh air, chatting to people, Devonport and, of course, actually riding the Segways!
Having only lived in the area for nearly twenty years I’m not really considered a local yet – but, having lived all my life in Auckland, I’m a very proud Aucklander and I love to talk about Auckland and Devonport. I grew up having day trips with my family to North Head, Cheltenham and Mt Victoria and dreamed about living closer. Well the dream came true and my husband and I have raised our 2 sons on this wonderful peninsula that has such a great sense of community and access to so many activities that define Auckland.
Being on a Segway is unique as there aren’t many places that have them. I love it when first time riders hop on, get their first wobbles over with, then take their first tentative ride along the training ground, and then realise that it’s not scary, it really is fun and let’s get going on our tour as they just want to ride!
I never tire of the views going up Mt Victoria – love to hear the “Wow” of the riders behind me; or riding into Balmain Reserve to view Rangitoto and Cheltenham Beach; or when the riders have fun in Mt Cambria wooshing down the slopes – they really get the Segway bug after that.
Segways are a blast to ride but that’s common knowledge, what makes my job especially FUN is getting to show off the historic part of the town that I’ve lived in for the better part of 20 years.
I moved to Devonport when I was only 5 years old and have lived here ever since. I attended Devonport Primary School which resides upon the side of Mt. Victoria/Takarunga, which I had to walk over every day. The mountain quickly became one of my favourite places to explore so naturally I was very pleased when I found out it was one of the locations I get to take people on a tour.
I’ve always been interested in local and world history so part of the joy of my job is when I get to teach people about Devonports’ history. As well as learning new things from people who ask questions I don’t know the answer to; causing me to, when I get home, do some research.
