What a fun AND educational tour. Russell made sure all of us were comfortable riding the segways before we set out. He loves history and really did his research. And he has a great sense of humor. He even provided bottled water. Loved this tour.

Thank you for the question. It's more about size & weight than age. A human being needs to be 54 inches or taller and weigh between 100 and 260 pounds. I hope that helps.
