Hop on board and enjoy your Segway experience. Your activity begins with a training session and safety briefing. When ready, head out on a ride to El Retiro Park, passing through the center of Madrid.  In the financial district, you will see the National Spanish Bank, near the Circulo de Bellas Artes with its amazing roof terrace. Admire the impressive Cibeles Fountain (the Goddess of Madrid) in front of Madrid City Hall. See Retiro Park, which is full of gardens with fountains, monuments, a huge lake, and a crystal palace hidden behind its doors. Ride through the beautiful Barrio de Las Letras area, where writers like Lopez de Vega and Miguel de Cervantes used to live.  Continue through Barrio de las Letras, home to some of Spain's major literary figures. Glide through Calle Huertas and past the Prado Museum. See the Church of Los Jerónimos and the old Retiro Palace, a popular park. Cross the Gate of Philippe IV, where you'll find the first of the French gardens, featuring curious sculpted trees. Ride along the wooded avenues to the Fallen Angel Fountain, one of the world's few statues dedicated to the devil. On the ride back, you’ll see La Puerta de Alcalá, the most important of the remaining gates of the historic city wall. Before returning to the starting point you’ll also pass by Cibeles Palace, the old financial district and the Puerta del Sol.

The company was easy to find and the people were friendly and efficient, the whole Segway thing was great fun and we got to see much more of Madrid than would normally be possible in the time. Also my guide was great, friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this trip to all adventure types.

Lisa was an amazing tour guide and really patient with us when we trained on using the segways. She took us through the city and park on the segways. We were all apprehensive about riding them since we didn't have experience, but we were pros by the end of the tour. Really cool experience!

I must specially mention our guide Lisa, who rode “the extra mile” to ensure that we had an enjoyable time. We were using the Segway for the first time and were apprehensive before the ride. In a short while, Lisa made us feel very comfortable and we could focus on all the enjoyable sights and stories that Madrid has to offer.
