Nice but...
Written by sabine Dunias, on 25-04-2022

Great welcome, very nice supervisor who takes the time to familiarize you with this unstable machine. After a little acclimatization to the object, the ride begins, first a little "sportive" in the sense that it is necessary to share the way with cyclists, pedestrians...then more relaxed on the quays of the Seine. Although expensive for a family of 4 people, the moment could have been nice but .... my husband fell and made a big sprain of his ankle. So obviously, the memory kept is not great. In the emergency room, we were told that the Hoverboard for the less young (we are 40 years old) was the equivalent of the trampoline for the children, the most accident-prone gadget! Although very nice, our supervisor could not really help us, it was necessary to bring back the machines to the store before helping the victim, like simply finding a pocket of cold in a first time, to freeze immediately, that would have been however useful. When you find yourself on the banks of the Seine with a sprain and a broken foot bone...it's immediately hell. So I would rather advise you to use a scooter or a wheelchair with handlebars, which seem to be more stable unless you are not afraid of being in a cast with crutches for several weeks. Finally, maybe for the price, a quick presentation of some of the buildings seen along the Seine to turn this simply "fun" stroll into a fun cultural visit could be appreciated. To finish on a positive note, I repeat, the reception and the supervisor were really nice.

We are sorry that your husband was injured during this ride. This is the first time that such an accident has occurred during a Hoverboard ride. We sincerely wish him a good recovery. We exchanged with the organizers. They told us that you were able, despite everything, to continue and do the entire course with the group. We hope that this experience will remain for you and your 2 children a pleasant moment.

A young and dynamic team My 14 year old son was supposed to participate with a group of nine people he didn't know but had to cancel at the last minute Normally they have to cancel and well they still maintained the walk since we had waited for their arrival so he did a tour with an instructor in training and another animator Pretty cool, huh? He loved it, he wants to go back as soon as possible Go ahead, you won't regret it!

Very synaptic animator but what diploma does he have? Not enough supervision if we were more than 3.

It was good but hard! ?
Written by Anne B., on 08-03-2021

The kids loved it, that's the main thing. Easier for them than for us (old people over 45 years old) to apprehend the Hoverboard, I think. We had no chance, we were mixed with a group of the city of Paris and they were very very numerous! As a result, our leaders were entirely dedicated to managing the herd (and they had to be, for obvious safety reasons) and we may not have had all the help or advice we could get. They were very kind as they offered us to try again another day, outside of the school vacations. A great team, very attentive, even when they are overwhelmed. And a REAL adventure, a must try. Not as simple as it seems but very funny.

This unusual ride was a great pleasure for my 2 little sons, their guide Steeve is extremely friendly. The security is respected, protections and yellow vests. They were only 3 children already "warned" knowing how to practice the hoverboard, they had the right to a longer ride because they did not need an initiation. It was a good time for them, and I left them in complete confidence. I recommend this activity and will look into the other proposals for the next time. A big thank you to the team

We had the luxury of being very few in number, the guide took the time to explain to us how the hoverboard works and he was attentive during the course, especially on our safety. Very nice! Small disappointment because the guide knew absolutely nothing about Paris, he could not inform us at all about the name of the buildings or the bridges. I would have expected a tour coupled with tourist explanations.

The weather was gray and it was the month of August, then inevitably we had right to a privileged ballade, because we were only two! We appreciated it very much, as well as the kindness of our guide... Not at ease in overboard I could make the ballade in electric scooter, and this flexibility is a plus. I recommend it for young and old.

Great welcome from the provider. Especially since we were only my son and me. I was afraid of a cancellation but they were very careful with us. Little apprehension at the beginning but my grip (in foot!) is easily done. Very playful... but my legs were a bit stiff after an hour. Nice ride on the edge of the stage (Paris beach area) with a passage in a totally deserted area to have fun taking speed. A really good experience that I don't regret...

A first experience in overboard. Appointment in front of the store which does not pay mine (but in full move). Our hostess, a bit reserved at the beginning, explains us the machine and the protections. Small group of about ten people. 1 minute walk from a place sheltered from cars: ignition, boarding and ... forward. Our hostess relaxes and will be of a boundless sympathy during all the walk. A beautiful ballad in edge of the Seine, neither too long nor too short. We wait for the latecomers less at ease, we meet again at precise points? An excellent first experience, to recommend certainly...

Very good supervision because I had never done it before. After a few learning exercises in a safe place, we went to the edge of the docks. A great excursion with the family with very good memories.

Lack of professionalism
Written by S. G. on 04-08-2019

The course for the handling of the hoverboard is effective, the advice is good to quickly get by with the hoverboard. What I didn't like is that one of our hoverboards ran out of battery at the beginning of the ride, that we waited quite a long time for it to be replaced, the ride was not extended to compensate for the waiting time nor was any commercial gesture proposed. One part of the walk is nice along the Seine, the other part in a tunnel. Despite these disappointments, it is a nice discovery. However, considering the price of the service, one can expect a better quality of service.
