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.
Excellent tour, started on time, guide was very knowledgable about the city and was great at showing us how to use the Segways. Was fantastic zipping past the pedestrians. We saw a lot of the city in a short time. Highly recommended!
We would highly recommend the Segway tour. We were a litttle apprehensive about the Segway's, but after five minutes we felt like we had used them forever. We had a delightful guide, Marcy, and saw most of the major sights of the historic part of town in two hours. It would've taken us five long, hot, and sweaty hours to see the same on foot. Don't miss the Segway tour!
Most excellent, really enjoyable way to see the city. The segways were fun and really easy to use
This is a MUST DO!!! The segways themselves are so much fun and really easy to get the hang of. The tour guide was amazing, she spoke perfect english and knew all the history of the city, this was one of the highlights of our trip and would recommened it to anyone. we went on a bus tour aswell and it just didnt compare... well worth the money! =)
The tour was very good, it's one of the best ways to see a city quickly. We managed to go on the tour and then visit the most interesting places all in one day.
The guide was interesting and knowledgeable and the Segways were a lot of fun!
Excellent trip, and great value for money. The instructor was patient and very thorough, at the start I felt useless but after a while felt completely comfortable and confident on it. The tour itself was a brilliant way to see Budapest; I imagine it would be a wonderful experience in the summer, but even in February it was great (although wear gloves!). I honestly can't recommend this highly enough - definitely worth a go!!
Excellent tour with excellent guide. got well oriented to the city and its sights.
Great trip. Our guide was excellent. Would definitely put it on the list of things to do!
It was our first experience with segway.
Simply fantastic. Will repeat in future visits
The Segway is easy to use and fun. Compared with coach and/or walking introductory city tours, this mode wins. Tour guide was great too.
Excellent. Our first time on a segway. Andreos our tutor was fab. He was friendly and very reassuring. His expert training had us riding like a 'pro' in just a few minuites. He seem very knowledgable on history and facts on Budapest.
Absolutely excellent! One of the best tours we have ever done. Our guide (Marthie) was very friendly and informative and the segways were such a fun way yo see the City! We have decided to do a segway tour in every city we visit from now on. Highly recommended!
Highly recommended to anyone visiting Budapest, not only do you get to see all the main areas and attractions around Budapest, you also get to have heaps of fun on these segways! It really is an experience you just have to try, it's worth it!
Host was teriffic and very familiar with the city. He patiently guided us through the learning process and we had a teriffic experience .
When booking things on line - out of season - etc I was very concerned about the reality of this booking. However 10 out of 10 as the company were expecting us, they were open and prepared for us and they were a lot of fun. So the segways themselves - This is REAL road riding - so prep was very important. Like everything else in life - you MUST have on go on these things. Even in the cold out of season Feb in the Buda and the Pest - this was a great way to see the city and get your agenda set for the rest of the weekend etc. Impressed with Viator - impressed with the company they used - had fun with the Segways... Go on - you know you have always wanted to have a go on one ....
Always wanted to try a Segway, and it proved to be an exciting way to tour the downtown. Plenty time is allocated to learning to use the Segway, and our guide went at a pace that suited us, rather than sticking rigidly to a timetable. She was one of the most entertaining and informative people we spoke to, and the tour is a good way to get your bearings. Although you are asked to be responsible for paying for repairs to the Segways, they are well broken in bits of kit and managed to survive quite a few bumps and scrapes with no problem. All staff at the tour office are friendly, and it's a relaxed place, easy to find.
