I was the only client that weekday afternoon, and very glad that Christian made the time to conduct the tour for me. So I had a "private" tour and totally enjoyed it. This was my second time on a Segway for sightseeing, but the first time that I had to ride on the road and not the sidewalk. I felt... More

After an introduction & practice, we were on are way down in the lift & through the shopping centre!!! 'Bizarre experience'. We were off into the streets of Geneva following our guide Chris who was friendly and informative about the sights we passed and stopped at for breaks to stretch our legs. With the help of Chris we soon felt... More

I was in Geneva on business and because of rain the scheduled trip was not possible. The owner went out of his way to reschedule a trip shortly after sunrise during a weekday. After a few minutes of practicing to get comfortable on the Segway we were on our way. The interesting stories of the sights and history of the... More

I was quite fortunate to book the VIP tour with Citywheels where both Winfried and Christian first introduced me to Segways and then took me all around Geneva, the well known places that still kept some yet unknown stories and histories as well as the rather unknown places of historic significance. We then actually visited a couple of Segway bars... More

My aunt visited us from Singapore and took us for an afternoon of segwaying around Geneva. As a local, I was always afraid to be on two wheels alongside cars - no longer! Biking and segwaying is a lot safer than I thought it was; the guide is ahead and takes frequent pauses to make sure you're ok. You get... More

Hey folks! Great staff, great visit with a sunny afternoon! Love the fact that you can go anywhere with your segway, even in little alleys of the old town!!! :) Thanks to the crew for the warm welcoming! I'll do this with my friends for sure! Visit on Monday July 22nd.

This is a not to be missed way to see the city. The staff couldn't have been nicer; Margot, our guide, is a great teacher and made us feel comfortable and in command very quickly. Then we were on our way for a fabulous tour of Old Town with lots of interesting facts provided. It was great fun and we... More

Our guide, Bryant, did a great job of addressing our fears as we learned how to handle a Segway in the City Wheels training ground, he then lead on us a fun tour of the city. The tour was light on details but long on fun. Did I mention this was fun? FUN! Many of the tours I went on... More

A segway is a great way of getting around Geneva. I thought it would be difficult on the cobbled parts but it was no problem at all. Really good fun and I went from novice to expert ?? very quickly. Fantastic way of seeing the city without tiring yourself out.

I was in Geneva for business, and ended up with a few spare hours and wanted to see the city. I thought - what better way than a Segway! I called City Wheels, and had missed all of the organized tours for the day, but was able to do a private tour for 30CHF more than the standard long tour... More
