Segway is a very cool way of getting around, especially if it's the first time you ever tried it. If you add to this experience the fact that you are going around Prague, which is an awesome city to visit and with a guide like Ivan, it's twice cooler. Ivan is a great guide, a great segway trainer, and makes the 3-hour ride seem like 10 minutes in his company :))

Very nice home. Everything was perfect to make this visit to Prague as pleasant as possible. 4h was perfect to discover this beautiful city. Thanks to Katia for her very complete comments and her sympathy. A little cold but luckily the sun was there. Well done and thank you

An excellent tour in the little blue trabant. Our guide was fabulous and funny with lots of information about communism and WW2 history. The offer to test drive was super and great fun. Highly recommend this trip for an interesting and different way to explore the city.

We were able to rebook on a trike at short notice, which enabled us to do a larger tour. Absolutely recommendable and great spots that you would never find.

Very pleasant activity combining culture, discovery, relaxation and walks....
