Unfortunately we did not check our phone before arriving at the location alerting us that they could not accommodate our 10 AM reservation. Regardless, the staff expressed their apologies profusely but arranged a tour 2 hours later. This gave us time to hike to the top of the acropolis which was not Included in the tour. After a short meal at a local restaurant, we received a quick lesson on the Segway and we were off. The six of us were quite surprised with the ease of use of the Segway. Our guide, Chryss (sp?) was absolutely marvelous. We covered so much ground getting wonderful views of all the major attractions. You get very little opportunity to walk around any of the sites but that was ok with us. We were completely satisfied with this tour.
The Segway is the best way to see a city, especially on your first day of vacation since you cover many kilometers in a few hours instead of walking for days. In Athens, the folks at the tour company are extremely professional, have an excellent staff and assure you will see sights of the city, learn the history, and have a wonderful experience. We were greeted with smiles when we checked in and had professional instructions in how to ride the Segway. It is easier than you think since riding a Segway is easier than riding a bike, and after some professional instructions from our instructor, our group was cruising around with no issue! Gabriella was our guide on the Acropolis Tour and stopped many times to explain the history of what we were seeing, ask if we were doing okay, and also took pictures of us at any time we wanted. She was excellent!! Athens Segway is the best way to see Athens!
A great way to see athens and a lot of fun on top of that. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly
The Segway is the most fun. The information provided is limited and restricted to the sights you are visiting. So much more scope to provide more background information about Athens and the city. Still it was a lot of fun.
Fun and exciting tour. The sights were beautiful and interesting, and the ride was very enjoyable. The tour guide could have done a better job of bringing the group together and explaining the sights as well as discussing the myths and history relevant to the locations. If the tour guide would have shared more knowledge like some of the other tour guides we had in Europe, the tour would have been exceptional.
