What an enjoyable and fun way to see Athens! Having never used a Segway before, the tour started with a training session on its operation. It is a little bit more difficult than one would think, but after a few minutes we had it down and were ready to go. Our tour guide, whose name escapes me she was originally from Finland was wonderful and very helpful and patient during our training. We went around the perimeter of the Acropolis with a few stops along the way for photos. We also went through lively market towards the end and we enjoyed the entire experience. Much more fun than walking!!
We had one day in Athens after a week sailing around the islands. This tour was great value and allowed us to see lots of the sights in a short time. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and the whole afternoon ran to programme. Highly recommended.
Awesome afternoon! Saw everything...had great fun! Lovely guide from Finland gave me so much information I would not get anywhere else about life in the city.
We saw turtles in the wild! I had such a wonderful time that I could definitely do it again. It made my trip!
Amazing, from the beginning till the end: very nice introduction to the segway, great route and very interesting explanations about the city.
This tour was amazing. Not to mention very fun riding the Segways. Guides give you a quick training session and are knowlagable about the sites. You see all the major sites in Athens minus going up the Acropolis that would be interesting on Segway!.
I highly recommend this tour. Vera was an amazing tour guide. We took the Acropolis tour and she was very informative and funny. It was a great way to see a lot of ruins and get an idea of where we wanted to go later on foot!
Good tour, but spent a bit too much time in the park, and not enough seeing the sights. I took this tour and the Acropolis segway tour. Don't get me wrong, I recommend this tour, but if only have time for one, take the Acropolis segway tour instead of this one.
Awesome tour! Such fun and a relaxing and unique way to see the city and save our legs after lots of walking in other cities. Guide was very patient and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Athens. Segways are easy to operate and we highly recommend the tour to anyone
First class everything, routes, sights, tour guide, fantastic!
This tour was amazing! The tour guide was excellent, very informative, and very thorough. There was never any pressure. They made us feel completely at ease. Our tour was during the low tourism season. This made our tour feel very personal.
This was a great way for us to get oriented to Athens at the beginning of our short stay. We were late for the tour, but the friendly staff took us on our own personal tour. I forget our tour guide's name, but she was excellent. This was our first Segway experience and I can't believe we haven't tried it before. I can't wait to do another one.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! It was a blast watching pedestrians wave to us as we passed them by! Would definitely recommend.
We loved everything about our tour. It was the perfect way to start our 2 day visit to Athens. Costas, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the monuments and history of the city. We covered a lot of area on our Segway and there was no way we would have seen as much in the time we had on shore from our cruise. The equipment was well maintained and safe. Helmets were provided. I'd recommend Segway for anyone who thinks they are physically demanding. They're easy to operate and handle.
It was an awesome way to spend a beautiful day in Athens Greece!
Well the nice way to discover Athens as first time and to be able to find your way arround you have the best choice to take this tour en enjoy it. killy was fantastic and dont worry about time with them you will enjoy it till the max
excellent. had never tried a Segway before - now we are hooked. Took us around to see the main sights of Athens - we did this on our first day. Fantastic - could not recommend this more highly.
Loved this tour. Great way to see Athens. Really hot on the day we went and being on the Segway made it really easy to get around. Look forward to doing the same tour in Paris. Don't be scared it's easier than you think.
thoroughly enjoyed our segway tour. had read about the guide, Vera, and she did not disappoint. she was very careful of each of the participants - watchful that no one is left behind or lost and careful to point out dangerous spots, etc. also offered to take photos for us. doing a segway tour in Athens is perfect! touring on wheels!
Excellent experience and a lot of fun!! I would highly recommend this tour! We would not have been able to see as much as Athens had we gone on foot. This was a much faster and easy way to explore and sight-see!
So glad we booked this tour! Vera was an excellent Segway instructor and highly knowledgeable about the history and the sites. Got to see every site on my list of sites to see. One drawback is that there is not time to actually climb up to the acropolis. No worries though! Because the tour is just 2.5 hours and you get to see everything else up close, we simply went back to the acropolis later in the afternoon for a leisurely look. Highly recommend if you want to try an awesome way to see things that doesn't involve walking.
This was our first excursion on a Mediterranean cruise, and despite all the other things we've done, this was the best! Not only was Athens gorgeous, the segways were easy to use and so much fun. We got so many jealous looks and heard people comment how they wanted to ride a Segway. Our guide spoke great English and was very friendly and knowledgable. When we got back to our ship, many of our shipmates commented how sore their feet were and how they wished they too had taken a Segway.
We loved this tour. I was anxious about the Segway but had no trouble with it. The tour was fun, perfect amount of history and info to know what you wanted to explore further. Staff was very good teaching each individual how to safely ride the Segway.
On our first day in Athens, we decided to go do a segway tour since many of the sites require walking. It was very helpful to get an orientation to the place we went back later to walk on foot. At first I was hesitant about the segway since I never rode one before, but after a 5 minute training session, I was set to go! It's really worth your money and I think you will have lots of fun.
