It was great fun, good introduction to using the board. Very nice guide (Phil) explained everything well and informed us in an appropriate form. Not overwhelmed with information, so we could make a good decision about what we wanted to take a closer look at over the next few days. The tour we did at the beginning of our short Dresden vacation was very helpful! Thanks a lot for this. LG from Upper Bavaria

Beautiful tour - we were thrilled

We have never done a Segway tour before and were very excited at the beginning. After an extensive briefing which was very good and took away all fear and concerns, we started the tour. It was a wonderful experience and a lot of fun. We can only recommend it to everyone. A big compliment to the guides. We will be back.

The introduction to using the Segway was great, we liked the chosen route very much and you could do it without any problems. The guide made the tour entertaining and interesting. We had a lot of fun and got to know Dresden in a different way - highly recommended!

A nice experience, professional guidance

Very good instruction compared to other Segway providers. Small group (only the two of us), which was very pleasant in a tourist hotspot like Dresden. Interesting background information from the guide.

Great route in dresden, 2h are perfect to get a very good overview of dresden. Guide was very gentle.
