The organisers were great and gave us a one on one tutorial on using a Segway safely. They made sure we felt comfortable before hitting the streets and they were always close by in case of anything. We visited a lot of the main tourist sites in Barcelona and enjoyed the tour. Also a really fun tour to do on a Segway. Would definitely recommend. Our tour guide was more than happy to snap some pictures and videos of us too.

I had the absolute best time on my tour today! Highlight of my trip. Our tour guide who unfortunately I can’t remember how to spell his name but it began with M! Was so lovely and knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions from the group. I 100% would recommend this tour to anyone it was great and I got some amazing pictures!

We had the sweetest and most informative tour guide, Rene, and we had so much fun! Also, my friend felt pretty shakey on the segway, but they made sure that she was safe and comfortable the entire time. We went to a few places around Barcelona, and I loved the range of destinations

Alex was super nice! Great experience. We learned a lot and Alex made sure we rode the Segways safely

Everything was perfect apart from the weather (Sea mist) stopped the helicopter flight.
