25th March 2014 3 Hour Tour
This was our first Segway experience and after 10 minutes training we were on our way
Luckily there were only 2 of us on the tour so we had Peter our guide all to ourselves
Peter was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting and a lot of fun
10 out of 10 for the experience and our excellent guide

Our tour ended up being only the three of us girls travelling together like a private tour. The segway was easy enough to get used to and Budapest is pretty flat except for a few bumpy roads and curbs. Our guide was really nice and very knowledgeable. She showed us heaps of stuff, and asked us if there was anything we wanted to see so she could tailor the tour to us. At the end of the tour she sat down with a city map and showed us heaps of stuff including a good place to have lunch.
This is the BEST way to see to see an old world capitol! The nature of the tour assures a reasonable size group (~12 - 16) so that everyone can see and hear the entire presentation. The Yellow Zebra Tour was expert in bringing up absolute novices to competent Segway operators in ~5 minutes; they were totally safety conscious with new equipment and expertise on operation; the guides were superior in knowledge and ability. We cannot recommend the experience more highly.
Took a segway afternoon tour with Yellow Zebra recently, and was really impressed. The office was easily found and we were received by a friendly staff. After an initial practice session, we were off on a 2-hour spin around the city with our guide, Brigid. She is a superb ambassador for her city, and gave us plenty of insider information and funny anecdotes. There was no-one else on our tour, so Brigid tailored the afternoon to suit our interests. This is an amazing experience and a lot of fun. We had never used segways before but they were really easy to use. Highly recommend this for everyone. Enjoy!! Thanks Brigid, amazing!
This was great. It was not our first Segway tour so we were familiar with the equipment. This is a wonderful way to see a city and we highly recommend it to adults of all ages and youth that are old enough. Our guide was FANTASTIC and gave us not only historical facts, but also her educated insight. She was also able to give her perspective into life in Budapest. The city is not one of the most beautiful in Europe (that is NOT to say that it is not beautiful), but the people are very proud of their city and country and that comes across in a very pleasant unmistakable way. There are many national treasures in Budapest and I am sure that over time this city will regain it's once prominent place. They have come a long way since they became a free nation. I strongly recommend visiting this city and feeling the strong love its inhabitants have for their city and country. It is nice to see, especially in the youth.
Brilliant! a great way to introduce your self to Budapest. Segway's are such fun and easy to get the hang of.
What an experience! We took the premium tour, so in adition to the most interesting sites of Pest we also went to Hero square and did a tour in the park. Segway was not only fun, but also a perfect way to enjoy the very interesting explanations and historic tales of our perfect guide Thomas
It was a wonderful experience, we have been able to see some more of Budapest bu expecially to enjoy first city light getting on at dusk. Our guide Lazlo was an excellent companion, very kind and professional
We loved this tour. I was very worried I would not be able to manage the segway as I have a poor sense of balance but after our 'instruction and practice' we set off and I had an absolute ball. I quickly gained confidence and enjoyed every moment of the tour. Our guide Andi was fabulous, full of knowledge and enthusiasm for her city. The only suggestion I could make to improve this tour would be to have headsets so the guide could talk whilst riding the segways. Being over 55 I would recommend others my age to have a go. Can't wait to do another segway tour.
An excellent way to see the City. Once we got over the initial "what do we do" it was fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable...
It was pretty cold, and I'm sure it would have been even more fun if it was warm. Although it was cold, it was still a great experience.
Brilliant!! What an excellent way to see the sights and take in the history around the city. This was our first day in Budapest. We had a short training session on the use of the Segways and then out for a 2 and 1/2 hr Segway tour of the city. This then enabled us to gain our bearings on the city maps to get around the city for the rest of the trip. the feeling of going back to your childhood zipping through the city streets and the looks from people and photographers taking our picture as we passed were well worth the cost of this trip. Anyone going to Budapest should try this trip. Booking in advance is advisable. Neil and Nicky from the UK Oct/Nov 2012
A great way to see Budapest. The guides were excellent in giving us ample time and instruction to semi-master the Segway. We felt very confident when we started off and the confidence grew by the minute even though my wife and I had never been on a Segway before. I'd give this tour six stars if that were a choice. Will definitely look for this sort of tour when we next travel to Europe. An absolute delight.
Our guide Briget was great! We were very lucky that only 2 of us were on the tour, so it's like a private tour. Briget was patient and friendly too.
