What You Can Expect

Madrid Segway Tour

Madrid Segway Tour

Start your tour with a safety briefing and some basic training before setting off on a route through central Madrid.

Pass by Almudena Cathedral, recently completed in 1992 after more than 110 years of construction. Although the church is relatively new, this spot has been a place of worship since the city's earliest settlement.

The Palacio Real or Royal Palace, was the brainchild of Felipe V, the first of the Bourbon Kings. His plan was to build an architectural masterpiece to rival its European counterparts. What you now see is an Italianate baroque colossus boasting around 2800 rooms. It is still used for official receptions, however the current King does not reside in the Palace. You will also see the beautiful Sabatini gardens in honor of Francesco Sabatini, an Italian architect who worked a great deal on the Royal Palace.

See the amazing Templo de Debod, a 4th Century-BC Egyptian temple which was saved from the rising waters of Lake Nasser and sent block by block to Spain in 1970.

Cruise through the famous Plaza de Espana where you will see a statue of Spanish writer, Cervantes. At the writer's feet is a bronze of his most well known characters, Don Quijote and Sancho Panza.

Return to the heart of Madrid, Plaza Mayor built in typical Herrerian style. Formerly a center for Royal festivities and Bull fighting, the square was burnt to the ground in 1790 but, was subsequently resurrected. Today the square is lined with shops and alfresco cafes, which makes it the perfect place to end your tour.

A really good experience, adequate training and then a detailed tour of the principal sites around the royal palaces of Madrid. I am 64 years of age and this was the first (hopefully not the last) time I had driven a Segway, very easy to handle , avoiding pedestrians on the Gran Via was a little daunting at first but easily achievable. Carlos our English speaking guide was fabulous and very attentive.

Absolutely fantastic tour!!! My daughter and I had never been on Segways before. They helped us in a low traffic area right in front of their business until we felt comfortable starting the tour. Our guide, Guillarmo, was outstanding. He gave the tour in very good english and made us feel like we were friends he was showing around his great city. He catered the tour to us, let us stop whenever we wanted, and had a planned tour in mind but was willing to alter it for us. We did the 2 1/2 hour tour and was sorry when it was over. We highly recommend this as a way to see Madrid without having to endure a boring tour.
