Excellent tour of Messina. Fransceco and his lovely girlfriend were very good. They were very safety conscious, giving us a full lesson on how to operate the Segway. So do not be afraid, just do it! We saw so much of Messina via Segway mode beats walking hands down! This was my husbands first time, and he loved it. The only thing that concerned me was the meeting place. I find in Europe they do not give clear directions to a business to meet at. It is usually a piazza or on a corner. For us in North America, we are used to signs or businesses as landmarks to meet. It's just very different. However, if you bring the phone number, and are standing in a piazza, just call, they will fetch you. I highly recommend this tour, and would definitely take it again. Thank you for a wonderful experience Francesco and family. Wishing you all the best.

Brilliant experience, although a little hair raising at times with the traffic!

Our overall tour was very vice. This was our 7th European Segway tour. Our meeting place was easy to find and only a couple of blocks from the boat dock. The CTS Segway guy met us and our guide Nina. The owner spoke no English but our guide spoke very good English. It was her very first time on a Segway, but she picked it up quickly as do we all on our first try. We toured around the downtown for about 2.5 hours. Ponchos were provided when we got some liquid sunshine for about 20 minutes. The clock tower church is a must see at 12noon. It has many moving parts, bells and a few surprises. It would have been nice to have a map showing the exact location to meet since CTS does not have a office there. The Segway's are transported by van to the meeting location. Overall an enjoyable tour. Helmets were offered but no headsets provided or water.

This was a very fun tour. It ended up being a private tour with only the two of us with a leader that stayed in front of us and a guide talking through headphones in our ears.

Fantastic experience. Only 5/10 minutes walk from the port. This is a must do tour and would recommend to everyone.

Great way to see the city of Messina. Our guide was fabulous so much history and insight were given. We received excellent instructions on operating the Segway my husband and I had never used one before. We had a blast and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone considering a different way to see the city!

The segway tour was a great way to see the city. It was very hot but we forgot about it because the sight were so educational and entertaining. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it very interesting. As a middle aged couple it took a little bit of practice to master the segway but not too much time.. Both Leo and his son Francesco were very helpful and sweet. Yes, we would recommend this tour but maybe when its cooler The church was a great experience with the lion roaring, the rooster and the rest of the animated features.

The tour and guide were both good and Messina has a nice history, but I had a hard time finding the Segway tour operator. This is Viator's fault as the picture/avatar shown on my tour ticket were not of the Catalani Church where the meeting point was, but instead of a nearby cathedral. The cathedral is very nice, but it is NOT where you meet and it is not the Catalani church. The clock tower next to the cathedral is a must see show at noon everyday that lasts for 10 minutes.
