Full description
Climb aboard a self-balancing Segway to explore the most beautiful park in Madrid. Start with an introduction to the electric vehicles, and once you are comfortable on the Segway, glide over to the so-called "Barrio de las Letras" ("Literary Quarter") where some of Spain’s major literary figures, such as Cervantes and Lope de Vega, used to live. Journey down Calle de las Huertas to reach the Prado Museum, a world-famous temple of art. Then, follow your guide past one of the most beautiful churches in Madrid. See the magnificent facade of the Iglesia de los Jerónimos before arriving at Retiro Park. Ride around the park for about 40 minutes and see landmarks such as the lovely pond, Crystal Palace and monument representing Lucifer's fall from Heaven. Enjoy the relaxing sensation of gliding along the park's large avenues. Depart the park and make your way back to the start point, passing the Puerta de Alcalá (Alcalá Gate), Palacio de Cibeles (Cybele Palace) and Puerta del Sol at the true heart of the city.

We loved our trip with Paloma! The original route we had chosen was unavailable due to a parade and road closures so Paloma consulted us on what we wanted to do and came up with a new plan. She was the highlight of the day - professional, funny, and comforting. None of us had ridden Segways before, but with her guidance, we were zooming around in no time. Loved seeing the sights so effortlessly and felt very safe with Paloma’s guidance. My kids both want Segways now!

With this activity we make a mixt between visit and fun to ride a Segway Children (mine was 14 years old) are enjoy to follow other participants with such modern machine. The configuration on the city (special way for bicycle, space for all,...) is ideal. The security is insured by the experimented guide and by an adhoc equipment. An activity to make absolutely.
