Take note--there are imitators in Florence. This is the segway tour to take. Professional guide with a first rate tour. Allow a little it of extra time to locate the meeting place. It's not obvious but not impossible to find. Easy to operate and fun for all. The group size is perfect. Do this tour early in your Florence visit--the added bonus is that it giets you oriented for the rest of your stay. Built in breaks. Wear comfortable clothes. Do bring water.
We LOVED this tour! I wish I could remember the name of our tour guide. We loved her accent! Her knowledge of the history of Florence was staggering! Cruising around Florence in the evening on our Segways was so relaxing and refreshing, as it was much cooler out. I highly recommend this company!
Bernadette was a great tour guide. We had a blast and the segway was truly easy to adapt to. We did it the first night we got to Florence and what a wonderful way to see the city. Ended with a delicious gelato, yummy! Highly recommend!
A brilliant tour with Valentina. Went to almost all the main sights in the city and the bonus was a gelato stop! Good value and excellent tour guide.
We got to Florence in the afternoon so it was too late to go on any scheduled tours. So I booked this Segway tour which starts right before sun down. It is such a fun experience. We were a small group of four and our guide took us everywhere in the city in 2.5 hours. She was excellent. Learning how to use the Segway was a breeze. You don't get to go into any of the sites in the tour but you definitely get a feel for what you want to come back and visit during the day. And you do it while it is cool at night. The tour ends at a excellent Gelato store where they treat you to a small two flavored cup of Gelato.
The location of the start is easy to find. Bennie did a fantastic job. Best 2+ hours ever on a Segway. Tour hit all the highlights and was beyond informative with some local tidbits thrown in.
Very good despite rain at the beginning. Plus Segways are fun to ride. Guide very knowledgeable
We are a family of 4 (with two teenagers 16 and 13). We had sooo much fun on this tour. Seeing Florence at night was really spectacular. Our guide was also incredibly friendly and informative. I think Florence is a great city to do this tour by Segway as a large part of the city center is pedestrian only. Also at night we found the crowds to be less so it was much easier to zip around all the sites. It also helped break up all the museums we were going to. The Segway is easy to use and pretty intuitive so if you have any concerns that you won't be able to manage it, don't be. It was great fun and a great way to get a tour of Florence.
Fun, easy to explore and would suggest doing early on in your stay in Florence.
Enjoyed our Florence Night Segway tour ! Really cool experience on wheels. If you have never been on a Segway. Truly a must do.

This tour was just the best fun! Christina was enthusiastic and well informed. This was our first time on a Segway and it's so easy to learn. Taking the tour in the evening made it extra special, such a lovely atmosphere. Plus the streets are less crowded than during the day so we could really whizz along! Brilliant. Just do it!
It was the first time for the three of us over 60's to mount a Segway !! We all thoroughly enjoyed our Florence by night tour, and were very impressed with the knowledge and passion our guide Bernadetta displayed.
If you're looking to try something fun and different while also enjoying some fantastic views of Florence at night, then definitely give this a go. This was my first time on a Segway and felt comfortable as our guide provided us with great instructions on how to use the machine and plenty of practice. The tour actually starts a little later in the evening which is good as you avoid crowds. Do this on your first night in Florence as a way to get a feel for the inner city.
This tour was one our highlights... The Segway needs a little getting used to.. but once you are on... it is a breez.. Our Guide Chiara was also so helpful and nice..
Soooooo much fun. A great way to see florence and learn some of the history. Chiara was lovely and very patient with the first timers.
