We have ten years of experience and thousands of happy customers. The glides are about three hours long, and we will have time to glide through the little streets of the Gothic Quarter and the Roman part of the city, where we will learn about the history of the city. From there we will go to the statue of Columbus and the old harbour. We will also visit the Barceloneta to have a taste of the sea and glide all the way down to the olympic harbour, the olympic village. From there we will return going through the park of the Ciutadella and we will be amazed by one of Gaudi's earliest works..

The Segway Glides tour successfully combines a cool, fun element- manoeuvering the Segway under Edgar's expert,patient guidance - with a wide-ranging itinerary taking in Roman ruins, the Medieval Gothic section, the bustling Barceloneta beach area and the tranquility of Parc de la Ciutadella. Worth booking well ahead .Wear 'sensible' shoes and comfortable clothes for your 3 - hour glide.

Edgar was a very informative guide but most importantly, very nice and approachable. He definitely knows his stuff about Barcelona and its history.

During this tour you kill two birds with one stone, learn how to ride Segway and see the beachside of Barcelona, including Barceloneta, old port, and Ciutadella park.

This three hour segway tour of Barcelona was one of the highlights of our holiday. Our initial concerns that three hours is a long time to ride around a bustling city soon vanished as Edgar our patient and knowledgeable guide took us around the narrow shaded streets of Barcelona's old city and then along the beach front. We saw parts... More

Fantastic, fun and interesting tour. My son and I booked a Segway Tour, our first but will not be our last! We had a great time mostly due to our tour guide Edgar. We covered a lot of Barcelona that we would have otherwise have missed during our 4 day visit. Edgar was very informative and friendly. I would highly... More

Edgar was beyond great, taking the time to make sure all us first timers (2 adults and 4 children aged 13-17) knew how to operate the Segways - and then giving us a great detailed history of Barcelona as we 'Segwayed' thru major landmarks. There are other Segway companies, so glad we decided to go with Edgar - it was... More

I joined this Segway tour with my 12-year-old daughter from Japan, and there was other family (3 people) coming from Israel. Edgar gave us the meeting point map with detail description by email in advance, so there's no problem with gathering at first. Tour was just wonderful. My daughter loved it so much. Edgar was really kind person and so... More

This was our first trip to Barcelona and our first Segway experience. Edgar was fantastic and provided a great experience. My wife and daughter were a little nervous about the idea but the whole family says it was one of the top highlights of the trek through Europe. It's very easy to use and you catch on very fast.

I highly recommend this tour which my family and I thoroughly enjoyed. We have kids 13 and 15 and it was no problem for them to use the Segways. The majority of the tour was on promenades and parks and very safe in that regard. We were traveling via cruise ship and met Edgar who taught us to Segway and... More

I can't say how much we enjoyed this tour and the depth of knowledge of Edgar. The other 5 star reviews give all the details of the tour that you need, but I was particularly impressed with Edgar's knowledge of the area, it's history both ancient and modern. We followed up on several of his recommendations for places to eat... More
