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.

Very informative guide, we had a great time learning to ride the segway, had not done it before so it was a new fun way to spend a couple of hours and the bike lanes are good to use, loved the park and you can cover alot more ground on a segway and see lots of attractions quicker than walking.

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

You got to see parts of the city that you may not see if you went out on your own and got explanations on many things that only a local would know. Pau was an excellent guide.

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