At first, I wasn't sure that I would be happy on a Segway and I thought that biking or walking would be better. Boy, was I ever wrong... Segway is the way to go. You get to see a lot over the next 4 hours including neighborhoods, parks, etc. It was time well spent.
In regards to the tour, it was excellent! I booked the regular group tour, but since I was the only one, I got a personalized private tour instead. It was the best ending to a hectic business trip. My guide, Jose, was fantastic! He knowledge of history was first rate bonus - magic tricks too!. We did the history bit in the beginning, but then off to Olympic Park and the best part was the BMW showroom. Couldn't ask for anything more. On the way back, more history, and more neighborhoods. It turned out to be really really great. I would definitely book the private tour again!
Our tour guide Jose was the best!!! Even with a small tour group, he managed to keep us entertained and made everyone feel at ease when operating the segway. Jose was full of character and told great stories which not only made us laugh but were very educational. I strongly recommend not only Munich Segway Tours but Jose as well :
Munich was our last stop on a two week European vacation. On a whim, I decided to book a segway tour for me and my wife for our first day in Munich. Neither of us had ever ridden one before but it sounded fun.
We did several tourist groups throughout our vacation but overall I feel that this one offered the most bang for the buck, although I must admit that part of my reasoning for that is because this was close to our hotel. There are lots of great tours to do but many of them burn up most of the day and involve hours of travel to and from the destination.
After doing this segway tour we are both convinced that this is the way to go for future vacations. It was a fun way to get around, and because they are pretty quick, you can spread further out and see many different points of interest in a reasonable amount of time. It was also a great way to discover other places to go and things to do. Riding the segways was very easy and intuitive and we were both very comfortable after only a few minutes on them. The guide was very informative.

We had Matt as our guide and he was extremely knowledgable about the world history which took place in and around Munich. Great fun, well presented. Only suggestion for the company is they might consider giving out a small bottle of water for each participant , particularly in the summer. We had this done on another segway tour and it was a very nice touch!
Highly recommend this trip, not just because of the super fun of riding a Segway to explore the city, but the tour also provide us history info and more understanding of the culture in Englsh esp when we can't speak German.
The tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable but delivered it in a very informal way. The Segway was great and a good way to get around the city. Well recommended!
After falling off the sedway a few times the tour itself was a great way to see a lot of Munich w/o wearing out your bunions
This was fun, after some quick lessons and tests of our ability we were off to see the sights of Munich in a small group of four. Saw all sorts of sights and learnt some the history behind them. From our guide to those in the office the whole experience was pleasurable and a great way to get around. Thanks to those involved.
Our guide was fantastic. He was fun, funny, knowledgeable and careful about keeping us safe. I highly recommend this Segway tour as an orientation to Munich.
Fantastic tour! This was the best thing we did on our trip to Germany. We had never ridden a segway but found it easy and fun to do. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun to be with and we saw so much more of the city this way than we would have otherwise.
Excelente Tour. Guia muito bom e com muito conhecimento sobre a história da cidade.
We really enjoyed this tour and the guide Matt was full of interesting history on the buildings and events that took place over centuries in Munich. None of the group of five had ridden Segways before but we were well prepped beforehand and really had fun on them but in a safe, controlled manner. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to others interested in getting around the city and learning as you go.
This was the best tour we took during our two week visit to Europe. Mat the guide is an expatriate Brit who was funny and interesting and guided us through some of the landmarks in Munich near the altstadt (old city). Not only was it informative about the early history of Munich, but also of the Nazi impact on the city and the effects of the war. But, this is the educational part of a tour that is also really a barrel of fun as you zip through Munich on a Segway. Learning to use it is a snap (it was our first time and we are both 58 years old), and riding it is a gas! We got some interesting looks from bystanders as we cruised down the streets, along the river, and through the park.
Definitely worth doing.
5 star experience !!!! Mat, our tour guide was absolutely fantastic! Completely knowledgable covering vast amounts of interesting history we would have otherwise missed out on. Been home 2 weeks and can't stop thinking about it!!!
so much fun. great guide. very informative and kept things interesting.
Great tour and Segways are a great toy. The tour guide Matt was knowledgable and very easy to relate to.
Our segway tour with Matt was great. He was very knowledgeable about the city of Munich and even customized our tour once he found we were interested in seeing churches. He had a funny personality and was easy on the eyes. :) The segways were easy to ride, even for my 70 yr old parents. I would highly recommend this tour.
The best thing you can ever do in Munich!!! A must for sure!!
We LOVED this tour! Our guide Steve was awesome and very knowledgeable. We were running a little behind due to our constant questions and Steve's patience to answer each one, but he didn't cut us short - he still took us to all the sites, and just took us all back a little later. My Dad (in his late 60s) absolutely loved this and was his favorite thing we did in the city. Would highly recommend this great tour that allows you to experience so much of Munich in a short few hours!
Had Tex as a guild. First 15 minutes my girlfriend and I thought it was going to be the worst tour ever. We thought he was rude and abrasive but we were totally wrong. He has a very dry sense of humor and once you understand he is amazing. We would highly recommend him to others.
Tex was a fun tour guide and made all of us feel welcomed. He taught all of us how to ride Segway safely before before exploring the city, which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Munich to take this tour; it is a fun way to navigate around streets of Munich with just few hours.
