We had the longest segway tour (2 hours) and would absolutely recommend it, if you want to see as much as possible. Our guide was Peter, he was very helpful throughout the whole time and gave us a lot of information about the sights as well as good tipps on what to see or where to eat. 10/10

The tour through Bratislava together with Jakob was great. I had a lot of fun on the segway and enjoyed the historical insight on the City. The time is also wisely selected as you get one of the best views on the city at the sunset.

We really liked the 2 hour tour. The student was nice and told us a lot about his city. The tour was in English even though we had booked German, which could be a problem for some. We were taken together with the bicycle troop.
