Having never been on a Segway before I was a bit apprehensive about this tour, however by the time I completed training and we made our first stop I felt very comfortable on the Segway. Our guide was both friendly and knowledgeable, and the use of the Segways allowed us to see much more of Berlin than we would have been able to otherwise.
I think this is a great initial tour as you get to see many of the tourists attractions of this beautiful city. Unfortunately you do not get to spend a lot of time at any single site, so I used this tour to identify the spots I wanted to spend more time at.
I was very pleased with both our guide and the tour itself and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who planned on visiting Berlin.
Seeing the city by Segway was a great way to go. I thought the tour was very good and Marietta was a good and knowledgeable tour guide. Seeing the city by Segway was much better than by bus (maybe not if it was raining) and we were able to cover a lot more miles than one could ever do by walking. I would definitely recommend this mode to anyone else.
The only thing that could be better is to have more signage out and around the base of the TV tower to find the shop. I do well on finding things and I was having a hard time finding it on the West side of the tower.
Super fun to ride on a Segway while getting to know more abt Berlin. Surely a good way to spend a good morning! The tour guide was funny and attentive. Definitely worth the trip!
Segways are extremely fun! And our guide, Kyla, gave us a peek into this city's troubled history, answered all our many questions, listened to our points of view and entertained us the entire tour. Thank you!
Our guide Tom was amazing! Great sense of humor, made the tour even better. Although it raining the whole time, we still had a ball on the segways! Loved every moment of it!! I am extremely clumsy but managed to get the hang of the Segway within minutes. Excellent!
This was a fantastic way to start my Berlin experience. The tour covered all of the major tourist sites and the guide was very knowledgeable giving the right amount information without going into too much detail so I could decide where I wanted to go back and to and where I felt I was happy with the one off visit. I loved every minute of it and it isn't just for young adults, there were several mature people having the time of their lives. The safety side was also excellent in Berlin.
Excellent! My tour guide was Tobi, and he was really cool. He had a lot of great historical information, and his own stories of growing up in East Germany were very humbling. I would love to go back and do another Segway tour with him. Thanks!
Helped my feet a lot. It was perfect. Guides all spoke really good english. Got to see everything in a good time. The only other option that would be good would be a bike tour, but a Segway rocks!
All I can say is take this tour. I went with my wife and 4 children (3 still teenagers) and they loved it. Our guide Rob, was knowledgeable and funny, and presented the history of the city to us in a very entertaining way. He stayed with us well beyond the allotted time just to make sure we got it all in. It was a great day, and I am a hero dad for arranging this one.
The best fun ever!!!!! Our tour guide Walid was brilliant. Zooming along in the traffic was so much fun. Don't worry about your age do it. You will see all the sights without being tied down.
Brilliant! Absolutely the best tour I have ever been on! The segways are a great way to check out Berlins sights. Thank you Wahlid for the informative, interesting commentary. Ask for Wahlid... He is the best guide ever!!!!
This tour was absolutely amazing! It was one of the highlights of a 7-week rail trip covering Japan, Russia (the Trans-Siberian railway) and all of Scandinavia, so that's saying something, because the rest of all that was brilliant. Our guide, Tom, was excellent - very friendly and informative and he made it all fun. We were all a bit scared of the segway before we had our lesson, but after 30 mins training as a group, then actually riding them for about 15 minutes, we were great. And we went in some pretty scary places at times - on the busy road (6 lanes and driving "on the wrong side" to us, being from NZ), in the bike lanes, in the bus lanes sometimes to get through - but it was easy and great fun! Excellent value. (My only complaint, I'm afraid, is with Viator themselves - I had a query about the tour about 4 weeks beforehand and they took nearly three weeks to answer my email, which I think is pretty bad.)

Given a good safety and pre-ride education. Tour covered the main areas of interest in Berlin for us and orientated our group to those sights we wished to return to. Instructions to find meeting point clear and easy to follow. Well taken care of by Fat Bike tours staff and they looked after our valuables whilst we were on tour. Small group of only 8 people which gave plenty of time for us all.
Loved this... A MUST for any tourist. You get to see all of Berlin and the tour guides are so knowledgeable! Love, love, love Marriette!

Probably the best tour in all of Berlin, and the most fun.
We had so much fun!!! Rob our tour guide had the right amount of humour and the right amount of history. He gave us Berlin tips on where to eat and other things to see and do. The segway was so much fun... You won't be disappointed with this tour. Thanks Fat Tire Bikes, Viator and Rob.

This is a must do tour for first time visitors to Berlin! It was a complete highlight of our entire month trip around Europe. This was the first thing that my partner and I did after arriving into Berlin. We had a small group of 12 which was great, everyone was from a different country and all very friendly. Our guide was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, approachable and made sure that everyone of us on the tour was comfortable on the segway. Partway through the tour we stopped at a coffee shop near Check Point Charlie, it was good to have a break from the segway, learn about the arena a bit more and warm up a little. Thank you to our tour guide was Marriette!
Great tour of Berlin. Seeing the old and the new, the East and the West. All the high points were covered in about 3 hours. You begin to get your compass set as to how to move around Berlin, so do this tour early in your stay. It is hard to believe that the wall stood rather recently and many remember those days. Thankfully, the area seems to be growing and inviting a very diverse culture.
This tour was awesome! The guides were patient and helpful with instruction prior to our actual tour and that was VERY helpful. They were also VERY informative when we stopped at attractions around the city. I recommend this tour and would do it again!!!
