Great ride in Retiro Park, a first on a segway. I was a little scared because I didn't really have a sense of balance but after the 3 minutes of little tension... much easier than the electric scooter. Very large park so good way to visit it quickly. Chris is a great guide.

Hice el tour con mi hija adolescente, fue maravilloso, recorrer el parque El Retiro de esta manera es genial!! Te llevan y cuentan cosas que si lo haces solo no te enteras. Súper divertido y entretenido. El guía lo más!! No recuerdo su nombre, solo que es venezolano, pero muy amable y atento. Repetiría sin dudas.

I took the excursion for 1 hour. It is very short and more if there are participants who have never run a Segway. The tour started late and the staff was not friendly. The guide was good, although he did not pay much attention to the group (of 3) since he was walking away and texting all the time.
