Lived up to all the great reviews, great way to see part of Madrid, a must if you visit Madrid even if you're not a first time visitor.
Niko the guide was superb. There was only my husband and me on the tour so we had his undivided attention and commentary.
Saw all the sites in a fun, effortless way. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Would definitely recommend!
If you are going to visit the museums, this card is a must have!! You get access to all of the major museums (for no additional fee) and you get to go to the separate entrance and bypass long lines. I love the Reina Sofia museum! The Prado is a must see. Enjoy!!
A must have when you are in Madrid. It was so great to get an overview of the city and then use the bus to get to and spend time at different stops!
VERY NICE TOUR. HIGHLY ADVISABLE ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE, LIKE US, WHO ARE VISITING MADRID FOR THEIR FIRST TIME.
Great tour and very knowledgeable guide called Jop.Good way to get orientated, saw all the main sights.Nice little stop at a cafe for drinks and tapas(included) and although it did rain towards the end so pleased we did it.Suitable for all ages and abilities.I booked online before we went and it worked out cheaper than those that had to book on the day !
Great ride, lots of info, friendly staff. Would recommend this ! :))
Nicolai was friendly, and funny - a great guide!
Both my wife and I were Segway virgins, but he taught us in no time at all and we had so much fun zipping through Central Madrid! Much more interesting(and faster) than walking!
What a great experience! Nico was fantastic throughout, explaining the workings of the segways individually before providing an excellent guided tour of some of the major sights in Madrid.
It is a great way of seeing the City and a very unique feeling navigating your way up the Grand Via on a busy Friday lunchtime!
This proved to be a very easy way of getting an overview of the historic centre of Madrid and, in fact, of finding how very walkable is this part of the city. We had intended to use the ' hop on/hop off' feature but felt that, other than the round trip, we had no need. On the ground the stages are not easily identified. Luckily our hotel was close to the Prado and we found stage 1 quite easily.
Worth the money. Wear comfortable clothing, shoes and bring water.
We loved it. Saw a lot of sites and heard commentaries about them that we would have never heard if we didn't do the tour
Overall, learning to ride and handle a segway was fun. We would certainly do it again. The tour guide explained it well and made sure that we stayed safe during the tour. He was very knowledgable about the city and its high points. Unfortunately for us, it started raining during our tour but we pushed on. The tour guide was prepared and provided us with ponchos. We even stopped off at the famous Chocolateria San Gines for a special treat. Madrid is not a city with a lot to see like Baracelona. But the guide made it fascinating with his extensive knowledge of Madrid/Spain culture and history.
Overall this was a fine tour. Learning to ride and control a segway was fun and we would certainly do it again. Madrid doesn't appear to be a fascinating city in the way of some other Spanish cities such as Barcelona, Seville, Granada, etc. However, the tour guide made it fascinating with his extensive knowledge of Madrid/Spanish history and culture. Unfortunately for us, it started raining during our tour and we kept going. The tour guide was prepared and provided us with rain ponchos. We even stopped off at Chocolateria San Gines for a famous Spanish treat.
