Really recommended!!! There were two of us and neither of us had any experience with a Segway. The super nice guide (Mehmet) took the time to let us get used to driving the Segway. In no time we had mastered it and the three of us set off. Along the way he showed us various sights of Düsseldorf. Really great fun to do. Next time we will bring our children (mind you, from 14 years).

Just great! Quick driveway and then the breathtaking view over Düsseldorf! Super great and there are labels, what you can see in the distance. One floor down there are no panes, but grilles and good air and you are alone because everyone is pressing against the panes at the top. From down there, you also have a great view. We skipped the bar and cafe because of the prices.

It was fun for everyone. The stories about the individual locations were very interesting and the tasks were easy to solve. Only the directions to Uerigen was a bit confusing. We will definitely do this again in another city

We really enjoyed this tour! Kerstin, our tour guide, was humorous and very well informed, so it was never boring and we also learned a lot about Düsseldorf.

Jürgen gave us a great tour of the old town, told us very entertainingly and with nice stories.
