Although this tour does not go through all the sights and does not overwhelm you with facts, it is very entertaining and very interesting. You can remember a lot more and have a different view of the small things in the art-historical development of the old town. Thomas explains very clearly and conveys his enthusiasm authentically. The tips for culinary delights are also great, otherwise as a tourist you don't pay attention to them.

The best Segway experience we had for a while. Mother & Son team to bring the best out of Dresden on a segway. We thank you for being such a pro team. I felt that both of them were looking for our safety. The segway are highly maintained, and with personal care, with an attention to details. We enjoy our visit and our ride together, with a great hospitality and city history. Highly recommended AAA+++

Great introduction. We were able to practice various things (curbs, bumps) extensively so that everyone felt safe on the devices. The tour was very varied between tourist destinations and just driving. We were all super excited and can only warmly recommend this tour.

The tour was really exciting, it was great fun and you saw a lot. The tour guide went into everything and explained everything very well. Can just be recommended!

very nice group. Received a lot of new expert information. Well-prepared guides (gloves/extra jackets - it was a bit chilly)
