Copenhagen: Guided Segway Tour with Live Commentary

1. Copenhagen: Guided Segway Tour with Live Commentary

Take a 1 or 2-hour Segway tour of Copenhagen and experience the city via a unique mode of transport that is both fun and great for the environment. The 2-wheeled, self-balancing vehicles are easy to use. You will have live commentary all the way through the tour via wireless helmet headsets linked directly to your expert guide. They will share a unique perspective on what life is like in one of the world’s most livable cities. Set out to experience one of the most environmentally friendly destinations in the world first-hand. Glide through the city’s vibrant streets on an eco-friendly Segway alongside cyclists and pedestrians. Enjoy the cool breeze on your face as you take in the stunning architecture, and views of the harbor front. Before you begin settle in at the conveniently located office within the heart of the inner city. Inside you'll find a quiet, spacious, and beautiful indoor track where you will get familiar with driving a Segway before taking to the streets. Choose between either a 1 or 2-hour option. The 2 hour option is the most popular, as you get to cover 80% of all the sights Copenhagen has on offer. See the sculpture of The Little Mermaid, settle in at Amalienborg - The Royal Palace, and learn everything worth knowing about why Danes are considered some of the happiest people at The Parliament at Christiansborg Palace, among other fun and interesting stories. You can expect to experience The Old Stock Exchange, Nyhavn, the Gefion Fountain and the Game of Thrones worthy Citadel. The 1 hour option feature some of these places but not all of them. You will still get to visit the picturesque Nyhavn, Strøget, The Parliament - Christiansborg Palace, small cute hidden alleyways and the stunning Old Stock Exchange while you also get to ride in captivating green havens. No matter what you choose, a Segway tour is a really great way to get your bearings over Copenhagen and guests often comment that it as a must-do early in your visit. Plus you’ll be able to get so much closer to the sights than cars and busses can while you experience the city in a cool and fun way. Of course you will also be able to stop at some of the largest sights for photo opportunities, where you’re most welcome to ask your guide about anything you like. The tour ends, conveniently, right next to the main pedestrian street Strøget. You can then rent a bike and store your luggage for free for the day. Before you head off, ask your guide for 1-on-1 recommendations.

What people are saying about Nyhavn

We did a private tour for our family of three. We had never ridden Segways before but they give you a brief lesson and an area to practice before setting out. Our guide was very informative and we had a blast. We had walked around Copenhagen the day before and couldn’t believe how much more we were able to see on the Segways. We’d definitely do it again elsewhere.

Varied and interesting tour of the highlights in Copenhagen. However, the meeting point is near the cruise terminal and therefore a little outside of the city center. Recommended!

Very funny and informative guide and excellent helmsman (in very windy conditions). Even brought out the ponchos when we had a bit of rain

Excellent guide - English/Danish/German info. Easy way to see the main highlights in one hour.

Absolutely worth it. I can only recommend it and I would do it again.
