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..

My girlfriend and I did this tour on our first day in Barcelona. It was absolutely fantastic. Edgar was extremely nice, knowledgeable and fluent in English. One really notices his enthusiasm and desire to share the ins and outs of his city. After an introduction of the Gothic quarter we learned to drive to Segways, which really only takes 5... More

Edgar is a great tour guide and he is passionate about his segways. the tour isreally insightful and you learn a lot from Edgar who is engaging and easy to talk to. He makes a point of having a real but easy and casual conversation with everybody on the tour which is kept purposefully small for this reason. Try and... More

Me and my wife were touring Spain and Austria this month and our first stop was barcelona. We looked up Edgar and his Segway tour through trip advisor and I have to be honest never done nothing like this so was excited but at the same time sceptical about this. I emailed him just a few days before arrival and... More

Edgar is a great guide and was very informative. You get a great tour and a couple of opportunities to ride at max speed (7 mph with governor). Edgar is personable and interacts with his guests along the way. Saw places that we would not seen had otherwise. Took Edgar's suggestion and ate at a local tapas place that was... More

Edgar is a very good Segway tutor and excellent tour guide. Keeps things interesting. Offers lots of top tips for places to visit and eat. Very inclusive and is just a really nice guy. You get to go around places that you may not walk to otherwise and would miss out on. Suggest you do this early in your visit... More

We booked this 3hr Segway experience as i thought it would be a great way to see quite a bit of the city, to cover this amount of ground walking would take a long time and we only had three days there. We met Edgar in the square as instructed, we then learnt about the square and the buildings and... More

Communication from Edgar from booking right through to a friendly follow up email was exceptional, just as our tour was.... we laughed so much! We met Edgar bang on time in the square, directions were easy to follow and we soon discovered how friendly and natural talking to Edgar was going to be. We had a chat and even a... More
