Madrid: 3-Hour Segway Tour
- Skip the line
- Duration: 3 hours
Benefit from a short training session on Plaza de San Miguel in front of San Miguel Market to make sure you feel confident operating your self-balancing personal transporter before you head off. Then, cruise through the city center to one of the oldest squares at Plaza de la Villa. Admire the 15th, 16th and 17th-century buildings, including the former residence of the composer Federico Chueca at La Torre de los Lujanes. Take a look at the Royal Palace and impressive Almudena Cathedral. See the Egyptian Templo de Debod and make your way to Sabatini Gardens. End with a visit to the royal hunting estate at Casa de Campo Park.
Travel from Madrid’s city center to the countryside in a matter of minutes and discover the stunning Casa de Campo park. Begin in the heart of the old city, close to Plaza Mayor, and make your way to Plaza de Oriente to admire the colossal Royal Palace and the Opera House. Glide past Sabatini Gardens, then ride up the long and steep San Vicente Hill. Cross the Manzanares River to reach Casa de Campo. Once a forest reserved for kings and noblemen to hunt in, Casa de Campo is now a popular place amongst locals. Cycle to a small lake, filled with madrileños and rowing boats at the weekend. With the assistance of the e-bike’s engine, climb a hill to enjoy amazing views of the city skyline. Begin your descent to the river, admiring the cathedral and the Royal Palace from the Huerta de la Partida before returning to the center of town.

We were alone as a couple with Gabriel the German speaking tour guide. His German was fine. We have fully used the 3 hours. The route is for people with Segway experience, I would say. The tour was very informative, even if we weren't really interested in all of it. There were routes on the Rio where you could really 'extend' the Segway. Overall very satisfied. Info: you have to wear a hairnet under the helmet, which you can get there
We went as a three person group, and we really enjoyed it! Although the three hour tour felt extremely long it was very enjoyable because we got to see a lot of Madrid in a short amount of time.
