What You Can Expect
In the early evening, meet your friendly guide and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll weave through Madrid’s downtown streets, following your guide into the neighborhood of Los Austrias.
While gliding from site to site, enjoy plenty of stops to learn about the history of the historical area and its intriguing sights. Nicknamed Habsburg’s Madrid in reference to the countless monuments left by the Habsburg dynasty, Los Austrias is fascinating to explore with stunners such as the Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio Real) just waiting to be seen. Stop for photos next to the famous mesones -- typical Castilian restaurants – that surround Plaza Mayor, and then continue riding around the city.
Pass Calle Cuchilleros, a street thronged with bustling cafés and restaurants, while working your way to Mercado de San Miguel. By day, the street market is full of gourmet food stalls, but at nighttime the lively bars take center stage. Glide through the picturesque square of Plaza de la Villa, admiring its elegant 17th-century architecture, and then stop for photos at Almudena Cathedral – a building as grand as its official name: Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Almudena.
Head back past the Royal Palace of Madrid, going past the city’s illuminated opera house – Teatro Real – while hearing of its status as a national monument. Your tour then finishes at the start point.
We did the segway tour in the evening as a group of 8 family members. The guide was very helpful and reassuring during the familiarisation session. During the tour he explained things in a very good manner and had a good level of English. He took us to some very good attractions, including the Royal Palace and Cathederal. I would deffinately book this again as it gave us a good insight to some nice attraction quickly, without getting too tired.
This was a fantastic tour and a great way to experience a slice of Barcelona.
So much fun! Guide was knowledgeable and tailored the tour to our requests. Only downside was that the starting point was a bit hard to find. Better directions please!
The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. Great tour!
This was an incredibly fun tour covering the majority of the best sites in Madrid. I loved travelling through the cobbled lane ways and side streets, the sedgways themselves are very fast and intuitive. The guides make sure that your fully prepared before racing through the streets, so you need not worry if you've never used one before. The guides are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and spent much more time with my friend and I than the 90 minute tour we initially paid for. This is a brilliant experience to have in Madrid, it is also much better priced than most sedgway tours we found. Do it, you wont regret it.
Great and very interesting tour around the city center. Waiting the moment to repeat again.
Even though I'd visited the places before the info the tour guide gave made it all seem brand new. Seeing as my wife and I had never been on a segway the training was great.
I enjoyed this so much. My guide wasn't the best in terms of depth of knowledge of the sites we visited, but i still had a lot of fun. It's a fun way to view the city. I recommend it.
I would recommend this tour for those who want a different perspective of Madrid. It does a good job of combining fun with history while on the move. Usually with a walking tour you may get tired after some time, but since it is done via the segway I think getting tired is tough to do. The one thing I wished was that the tour was a bit longer. Our tour was 1hr but I think 1.5hrs is the sweet spot.
Despite selecting the English option we were placed in a mixed group. The tour guide spent twice the amount of time translating between two languages hence less time on the Segway's and fewer sites visited.
