Our tour was fantastic! Great way to tour the area surrounding the Acropolis. If you are arriving by cruise, be sure to coordinate more than 2 days ahead about your meeting point their office or the port. We had initial confusion, but it all worked out and we loved the experience!

Alex our guide was patient and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. The tour was safe thanks to the training and orientation provided. After about 10 minutes, everyone was comfortable with the equipment. Helmets are available for extra safety. Recommend you practice stopping quickly early on in the tour when the going is a bit slower. This tour showed the best of old and new Athens with breathtaking views.

We had a wonderful time. They were careful about teaching us how to use the segways and even with crowded sidewalks we were able to get through and see so much. Tina was wonderful at telling us about what we were going by. I would recommend this tour for anyone. We took the metro to and from the ship and had no problems at all with it. The Segway people might want to send more detailed directions on how to find their place as we had to ask several people--but they were all very helpful.

Tour company was A+, what a fun way to see Athens in a few hours. Never have been on a segway, I was very comfortable once they let us practice. They worked with our group until we were all very comfortable , not rushing us at all. Friendly group. Would definitely recommend this to all! Wore a helmet as a safety measure...
Will look for more segway tours in my future travels!

Fantastic experience! The guide was very knowledgeable and though we had visited Athens before she took us to new places [thanks to the mobility of the Segway] and showed us things we had not seen before. Our group of four had never been on a Segway before, but it was second nature within minutes.

They do not require headgear which I think is a mistake. With the mass of humanity that is in Athens, especially when more than one ship is in port, it is very dangerous. You are moving left and right around people. My machine broke down twice and it was scary when I was unable to control it. The young lady that was our tour guide was very helpful but prefer the safety of the US in the use of the segways.

After experiencing a Segway Tour in Rome a couple of years ago, we were looking forward to enjoying the same type of fun with the Segway Tour in Athens. We have never been to Athens and thought this would be a great way to see the sites and city.
Tour started out with 6 people along with the tour guide. For the first 45 minutes to an hour, we went and saw several sites. The tour guide did a good job in explaining what we were seeing and spoke English quite well.
Unfortunately this is when it started to rain. The Tour group was nice enough to provide us with ponchos so that we could continue to ride the Segway. That was cool until the rain got heavy and we experienced lots of lightning and thunder all the way back to the Segway store.
So our tour was cut short by ½ hour although understandable as there was no way to enjoy riding the Segway in the pouring rain as this was defiantly a safety hazard. I was a bit disappointed that we were not compensated for the tour which was cut shout but then again, it really was not their fault as you cannot control Mother Nature.
I do want to thank our guide for providing us with her umbrella as we left. That was very nice and kind of her.
All in all, it was a good trip but due to the weather we didnt get to see all that I think we could of.
