Bahamas Segway Tour
Has anyone done one of the Segway tours in Nassau? They are not associated with the ship, but we are are considering trying it? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Just so you know..... a couple of years ago a Segway tour group was attacked and robbed in Nassau. The group included people from several ships in port that day, and DCL immediately canceled all future Segway tours there (we were supposed to be on one of them).
I'm not sure if the situation has improved, but I don't think DCL has offered that excursion since that incident.

There are 2 groups doing Segway tours on Nassau (or at least there used to be; I don't know what the current situation is). I did one just prior to the robberies. I don't recall the company's name (I'm going to see if I can find something, but we arranged it through the RCCL ship). But it was the company that was not involved in the incident. I really, really enjoyed the tour (we spent a while learning how to ride the Segways, then went to Fort Charlotte and an old botanical garden). Unfortunately, one member of our trip fell off her Segway and badly injured her ankle, and had to be hospitalized in Nassau. So I'm really torn about recommending this tour. I really loved it, but it seems like there are a lot of risks involved. Even the tour I was on went through an old, gorgeous, but abandoned botanical garden that the company had gotten the government's permission to use. The thought that there could have been an ambush there never entered my mind. So sad.
