Shore Excursion - 1 or 2-Hour Segway Cruise

7. Shore Excursion - 1 or 2-Hour Segway Cruise

Imagine going from an Ocean Cruise to a City Cruise! See all the best sights Copenhagen has to offer in just 1 or 2 hours on this fun and guided Segway Tour. As Denmark's only officially authorized Segway Tour Operator, the company only uses the latest Segway Models, a hi-fi radio system (so you can hear the live commentary from your guide), and great experienced guides. A Segway is a remarkable self-balancing, 2-wheel, zero-emmission mode of transportation. It uses a gyroscope to detect your movements: lean forward to drive, lean backwards to stop or slow down, and control the directions with the handlebar. It really is that simple. You'll begin your Segway Experience at the Langelinie Cruise Terminal where you'll be checked in and collect your radio and helmets. Then your guide will take you to a spacious training behind the store, where you'll get individual training and get practice before setting off to see the city.  Haven't tried a Segway before? Don't worry! You'll pick it up it in a couple of minutes.    The Segway tour will start along the pier where no traffic or cars are allowed. On this stretch, you will experience sights such as The Little Mermaid, The Royal Palace and Kastellet. The 1-hour tour is an intense, fast and fun way to see the city, and will take you all the way to Nyhavn and back. You will see more than 10 of the major sights in the city. The 2 hour tour - which is the most popular one - will take you further into the city center to explore iconic sights such as the parliament, but you'll also get a local experience off the beaten track through the cute and quirky streets of Copenhagen, taking in all its beautiful architecture and everyday life. On this tour there is a small break half-way through in the 'Hyggelige' Cafe in the Royal Danish Theater. Here, there are some exclusive offers, if you wish to make use of them. Both tours end back at Langelinie Pier with some organic complimentary beverages and a small Segway souvenir.
