What is a Segway?
The Segway Human Transporter is the first of its kind - a self-balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do. Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway stays balanced due to high-tech gyroscopes that automatically respond to your body’s movements, sensing when it should speed up or slow down.

How far in advance do I need to reserve?
Our tours fill to capacity on a regular basis, especially on weekends. To assure that you get the tour and time you want book as early as you can. If something comes up, you can cancel the tour at no cost up to 72 hours before. During busy periods we sometime have extra tours so we suggest calling us in our office during those times. We will accommodate walk-ins whenever possible, however those spaces are limited.
What is your cancellation policy?
We offer 100% refunds on all tours if the reservation is cancelled more than 72 hours (3 days) before the scheduled tour. We do not offer refunds for any reason once we are within 72 hours of the scheduled tour.
Are the tours cancelled in case of rain?
No, our tours run rain or shine. We have ponchos available in our office.
How many people will I be riding with?
Depending on the number of people booked , your group can have 6 to10 participants. We keep the groups small to assure a personal and safe tour.
Please note that reservations for parties of more than 10 riders will be split up into separate groups.
Do we go inside the museums and monuments?
We do not enter the museums and monuments since the Segways are so much fun! We will give you a great orientation however, and you´ll know exactly where you want to go after the tour.
Am I allowed to take pictures during the tour?
Absolutely. However we recommend that you either get off your Segway or ask your guide to take your picture.
Can I rent a Segway without a guide?
Unfortunately, we do not rent our Segways out to individuals without a guide.
Are the tours in English?
All our accredited guides are Europeans who speak excellent English. The tours are conducted in English or - depending on the group make up - in English and German. Being guided by a local adds an authentic touch to your tour.
How long is the Segway training?
Generally training takes 20 to 30 minutes. However we take as much time as necessary to assure that everyone feels good on his/her Segway before we start the tour.
Are helmets required?
Yes. We supply helmets free of charge and require that you use them.
Can children take the tour?
Children must be 12 years of age or older. If a younger child has experience riding Segways we sometimes make an exception.
