Madrid Segway Tour
Reviewed by: jennifer h, December 2014
A really good experience, adequate training and then a detailed tour of the principal sites around the royal palaces of Madrid. I am 64 years of age and this was the first (hopefully not the last) time I had driven a Segway, very easy to handle , avoiding pedestrians on the Gran Via was a little daunting at first but easily achievable. Carlos our English speaking guide was fabulous and very attentive.

Absolutely fantastic tour!!! My daughter and I had never been on Segways before. They helped us in a low traffic area right in front of their business until we felt comfortable starting the tour. Our guide, Guillarmo, was outstanding. He gave the tour in very good english and made us feel like we were friends he was showing around his great city. He catered the tour to us, let us stop whenever we wanted, and had a planned tour in mind but was willing to alter it for us. We did the 2 1/2 hour tour and was sorry when it was over. We highly recommend this as a way to see Madrid without having to endure a boring tour.

This is a great way to see any city, I always go on a week day for the crowds, but it was crowded anyway. They are fun and easy to ride-we took the 2 hour tour, one hour isn't enough. The manager and our guide were very hospitable and informative. This gave us a chance to get familiar with the different areas, that we may not have found on our own. We went back after our tour and toured the Palace-wow, what a place.

Great tour, the instructers were really nice and helpful. Highly recommended! Super if you need to go around Madrid but do not have enough time.

we took this trip last sunday on a weekend visit to Madrid.4 couples either side of 50.no experience b4.
initial nervousness dispelled within 5 minutes practicing in front of segway shop. soon lined up and off on tour of Madrid. Couldn't believe we were within minutes crossing very busy street and competing with pedestrians for pavement space!!!
feels like your gliding along effortlessly raised above the slower pedestrians. segway feels like
an extension of your body a bit like skiing a smooth red run.
could have done with a little bit more detail on places we visited and saw, but a must trip in addition to any others planned. enjoy! we did!

great experience! If you step on the Segways, it feels weird for the first 5 minutes, but after that it's a lot of fun.
