Enjoyed our Segway tour of Stockholm. Enthusiastic guide , great views and good weather!
Stockholm City Tour on Wheels was the activity that SAVED our family vacation in Stockholm. Not that Stockholm isn't a beautiful city but the weather can be fickle and it was this the weather that had kept us indoors for most of our trip. As none of us had ever been on a segway before our confidence levels were mixed. However, our tour guide, Marianna, was EXCELLENT. She gave clear instructions on the operation of the segway, and her explanations of the sites we would see throughout the city were both fun and informative. By the end of our tour we were all riding confidently...and we FINALLY got to see the beautiful city of Stockholm. In fact, it was so obvious that we were having fun that a stranger at one of our stops asked us how to make a reservation.
We had a wonderful time on our Tour on Wheels. The location is quite a distance from the cruise port, so we jumped on a Hop-On-Hop-off bus to reach the starting point. We were thinking we would also stop at other points of interest on the way back. But morning traffic caused delays, and the route was round-about, so we were 20 minutes late. We called to report that we were delayed, and left a voice mail. We expected to be disappointed on arrival, but our guide was waiting for us THANK YOU for your flexibility! and gave us the complete tour! This probably would not have been possible, were we not the only people booked at that time slot. The tour had just the right amount of commentary, history and explanation vs free time for taking in the surroundings!
Go prepared: it was unusually cold this year in all of Northern Europe, so we were glad we bundled up and took gloves!
A side note: We've ridden three different types of self-balancing scooters now, on three different continents. This was the lightest, but was easy to operate and apropos for the terrain. I encourage more seniors to give these a try. It allows one to see sights w/o hours of walking. You don't need to be an athlete. It almost becomes second-nature to operate it and every guide we have encountered has put safety first!
This was my 12 year old son's favorite tour. It was a great way to see different parts of Stockholm and to hear the history.
The guide was very considerate and made sure we were safe and following behind.
Fun way to start off our trip! I would just say be careful with bringing kids on this tour. Maybe it was just a fluke, but in our group there were 3 instances of kids falling off their segways. We had the opportunity to practice for about 10-15 minutes before taking off, though, and the guide didn't begin until we all felt confident on our segways. So again, probably just a fluke - but just something to keep in mind for those who may be less coordinated. In all though, this was a fun tour and the guide was always mindful of making sure no one in the group got left behind, and was helpful in answering any questions about the area.
