Copenhagen: 1 or 2-Hour Segway Tour

1. Copenhagen: 1 or 2-Hour Segway Tour

The guided Segway tour gives you the opportunity to explore Copenhagen in a fun and unique way in just 1 or 2 hours. As the only officially authorized Segway tour provider in Denmark, you will benefit from touring on the newest Segway machines with experienced guides, ready to give you first class customer service — as a bonus, you will help keep Copenhagen green & clean as Segways are zero-emissions. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start for check-in and training where you will receive your helmet, sign our waiver, get your radio, and meet your guide. You will then be individually trained in driving a Segway on a spacious and quiet training ground until you're comfortable to take to the streets. Don't worry if you haven't tried it before — it is super easy and most people learn it within minutes. The Segway is an incredibly intuitive machine. Some great routes are planned for you on both the 1 and 2-hour tour. All tours begin along the water for a nice stretch in a no-car zone. This is a great way to take off and still see iconic sights such as The Little Mermaid, which is one of the first photo stops. In fact, you will see famous must-see sights on both these tours including Nyhavn, The Royal Opera House, Amalienborg Palace, The Marble Church, Kastellet (The Citadel), as well as some hidden gems. The 1-hour tour covers over 10 of the major monuments and is a fast and fun way to see the city center from Langelinie Kaj all the way to Nyhavn. The 2-hour tour also ventures in to the inner city and you'll cruise by The Black Diamond, The Royal Library Garden, Christiansborg Palace, City Hall Square, Tivoli Gardens, the cosy Latin Quarter, and Kongens Nytorv. You'll also take a small break halfway through at the cafe in the Royal Danish Theatre, where there will be some special offers exclusive for you, if you wish (no purchase required). A Segway tour is a really great way to get acquainted with Copenhagen, plus you'll get up close to sights where cars are not allowed, and you can cover much more ground faster than you could by foot. You will truly feel the rich history of Copenhagen. But don't worry, the stories are light and fresh but still with substance, like everyone should be on a good day. Just imagine cruising right up on the square at Amalienborg Palace and waving to the Queen, if she's home. Or driving right through Kastellet (The Citadel) — a still functioning military site from the 1600s.  After your tour, you will receive a fun Segway Souvenir and you are very welcome to join your guide for a complimentary organic refreshment, and stay to enjoy the water front view. All tours include photo stops and only consist of small groups for your comfort and safety. Hope you are now ready to Segway cruise Copenhagen.

You will see more than 10 of the major sights in the city. The 2 hour tour - which is the most popular one - will take you further into the city center to explore iconic sights such as the parliament, but you'll also get a local experience off the beaten track through the cute and quirky streets of Copenhagen, taking in all its beautiful architecture and everyday life. On this tour there is a small break half-way through in the 'Hyggelige' Cafe in the Royal Danish Theater. Here, there are some exclusive offers, if you wish to make use of them. Both tours end back at Langelinie Pier with some organic complimentary beverages and a small Segway souvenir.
