This was by far the most fun tour that we have ever been on. Riding a Segway is so easy and fun, and we got to see parts of Vienna that we never would have gotten to. Well worth every penny! I highly recommend this to ANYONE!
Really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend for people who have only a little time or even for those who can't walk that far in one day like me!
It would be good to have a designated spot with a marker where we needed to meet the Viator representative. We were unsure for a while how to find the rep. We Needed the help of another companies local rep, who told us where to wait. The corner is much too busy not to have a very specific spot to wait. Otherwise it was great!
We had a blast. The Segways were easy to ride, and the guide was very knowledgeable.
Great tour you really see the back streets and major buildings up close.
Great fun although the segways are harder to handle than you would expect but a fantastic and unusual way to see the city. Would recommend as just a fantastic experience but if you find riding a bicycle a challenge then maybe this is not for you. Great guides and zooming through Vienna is something I will always remember. So 8/10 from me!
Loved the experience and a great way to see Vienna. Only issue: most of our tour was German speaking. Our tour guide would explain a site first in German, then repeat in English. We found that as the tour progressed, the German stayed extensive but the English explanations got shorter and shorter. We felt we got the short end of the tour. So get in on a mostly English tour if you speak English. The Segways were all in good condition, the training was good and the area traveled was wide-ranging. The Viennese are much more tolerant of Segways than the Parisians are!
Very nice tour, quite well organised, well presented by very informative guide, with the additional, VERY enjoyable, fun element of riding the Segway. Would definitely do such a tour again.
Quick to learn and well-supervised, very informative and fun. Recommended!
We had a great time once we learned the "game of balance." Our guide gave us good instruction before leaving for our tour.
A nice tour through Vienna. Something different than walking or cycling. There is a lot of driving and few stops made. But that's probably because we have a straggler in our group.
It was adventurous and nice. Our guide was soft-spoken and it was hard to hear him - especially as you tried to stay on top and miss all the obstacles. Would be nice if he gave a little info before of where you will be going and maybe a map to show where you are going. You zigzag through Vienna and at the end do not have a clue where you've been.
This was our second segway tour in different cities and this one ended up being about 10 of us in the English speaking group. The tour was so rushed we barely got off of the segway and didn't really have time for any picture taking. I thought a sunset tour would be nice, but there was no specific place to see the sunset for a great view, was just riding a segway for three hours. The tour information said it was at 6:30, but was actually at 7 and the tour information also said a drink and snack was included at a local place, which was not included and never even mentioned. I would say the tour wasn't worth it...unless you just want to ride a segway for 3 hours.
Tutorial was brief and not that helpful, you pretty much have to teach yourself how to ride it, it's not difficult as long as your confident! We went with 8 germans and the tour guide spent longer with them than he did with us.It was a great experience but wouldn't do it again in a busy city. Be warned you spend a lot of time on main roads in traffic, can be a bit daunting and quite dangerous especially when the tour guide shoots off in front and leaves you behind!
A suggestion, rearrange the tour and travel to the less congested areas of Vienna first. Then, when you are more comfortable with the Segway, go to the busier areas. It was rather stressful at first.
