I loved to ride a segway, it's easy, really cool and you can see lot's of places without getting tired of to much walk. The guides are really informative, they take care about everybody in the group, no one is left behind. The tour started on time, they gave us a training before and you are totally fine with that. I really recommend anyone to try it, is really fun.

Justin was our tour guide...funny and knows his stuff! I prefer doing a Segway Tour from a 6-hour bus tour hands down. All information you need is on this tour. If there are any other questions with other sites we have not touched, just ask. For parking, there's a parking garage right next door to the tour place, very convenient.
