Very good and fun experience, we have never used a SegWay before, the guide was very kind and patient his name is Andre, he gave us a quick lesson on how to operate the SegWay. We had our tour at 8AM so there was nobody else apart from my partner so it was more like a private tour. The guide showed us around the city and explained the history behind the famous buildings and sites. The guide Andre spoke really good in english. Overall the experience was really pleasant and fun would definitely do it again. I recommend it to anyone even the elderly to try it as it is very intuitive and easy to learn the SegWay.

After a few minutes of Segway orientation off we went. The pace was great for seeing the city and the tour through the old town and the market were great. The presentation of local history through the focus of local landmarks was perfect. While, at some points, we were sharing the road with cars at no time did we feel unsafe.

Versatile tour with a competent guide

Booked the tour spontaneously an hour in advance. Everything went smoothly. The guide was a very pleasant person who made the tour exciting for you. His creative interim ideas really enhanced the tour. He also responded very well to our lack of knowledge of English and explained everything very clearly. So if you want an overview of the city, its history, good dining options and a few insider tips from a creative and very human guide, this is the place for you. Riding the Segway is extremely valuable anyway ...
