Always wanted to try a Segway? This is your chance to do it! Bart showed us how to operate a Segway in mere minutes after which he took us on a very nice tour through Amsterdam East-Center. Well worth it!

I had never even seen a Segway before, yet alone ridden one on some of the most hectic roads I've ever known. The guide was very quick to put us at ease, calm and funny with lots of useful information not only about the Segways but also the sights he took us to see. My favourite tour, and I was... More

Great tour covering several main spots around the city. The tour guide was really friendly and had an amazing knowledge of the history of Amsterdam. He suggested places that we'll definitely be visiting in the remainder of our stay. Highly recommend!!!

The tour was unfortunately a big disappointment for everyone in my group of seven. We had choose the canal tour and were expecting to get to know the city better. But the guide (seemed very tired and not at all committed to his job) stopped only four times to speak and then only for a couple of minutes. We learned... More

People recommended a canal cruise as the best way to see Amsterdam. Beg to differ. The Segway tour is it. Takes about 30secs to learn to control it and before you know it you are wizzing around at the restricted max speed of 10kmp. At 2 hours it's the perfect length of time to get a feel for the city...

This is just one great expérience and a really fun way to visit the city! Two and a half hour guided tour well worth the money! The guide was really cool and he gives lots of info during the tour. We'll do it again, that's for sure!!

We love segway tours and we did see so much of the city on the afternoon of July 29. There were only 4 of us so it was easy to stay together. However, we could not hear our guide (and I can't remember his name.) The only time we could understand what he was saying was when we stopped. As... More

Bart was a great guide. The Segways were so much fun, and didn't take long to get comfortable? Best way to get around to see this this beautiful city. More bike traffic than cars and they absolutely own the road. Definitely recommend the tour.

My husband and I love to do Segway tours on the first day in each city we visit. While riding the Segway is not the best way to blend in and look like a local, it is a really fast and efficient way to get an overview of a city and figure out which sights warrant a deeper dive on... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our tours. I'm sorry to hear our equipment did not meet your expectations. I would like to point out that our equipment, although not new anymore, is certainly not in "poor condition" as you describe it. We check tire pressure regularly and change tires on a mileage based... More
