Our guide (it‘s almost always the same guy that leads the segway tour) was very friendly and gave us so much informations about Warsaw and it‘s history - it was great! Beside that, he was able to answer every single question that we had! Thanks so much!

Very enjoyable trip to the old city. The guide told us various things about the past of the town. We never used a segway before. It was very easy to use and highly maneuverable. In short we had a good time.

Paul was a fantastic tour guide, he was knowledgeable and passionate. The Segway was easy to ride and the old town was beautiful. Paul pointed out some good places to eat for later on as well.
