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

Our first, but not our last ride on a Segway, Mark was patient, we did catch up to hear about most landmarks and places of interest. It's all about confidence you see, if you are experienced on these things its no different to riding a bike. If you are scared, you could get hurt, so just tell that machine whose... More

We did the tour on June 20, after having arrived in Amsterdam from Canada. This was a great way to beat the jetlag - it was a cool and damp day but the tour went forward! Thanks to Bart for the rain ponchos, nothing stood in our way of covering and amazing amount of territory on these handy segways. It... More

We did that tour on Saturday 7th of June 2014 14.00-16.00. We started expecting that the guide would train us enough before we start driving around the busy Amsterdam. He did that for 5 min and his English and voice was so awful that none could understand him. We started the tour and he left speeding in front of us... More

Hello Mr. Z, First off I want to say I'm sorry that you had this experience, we strive to make all our guests enjoy the tour and enjoy the sights of Amsterdam! This particular tour you were on certainly wasn't a flawless one and there is always room for improvement. We start each tour with a 15 - 20 minute... More

Given that Amsterdam is a bike-friendly city, seeing it by Segway is a fun and relaxing way to see the city. My wife and I have never ridden Segways before, but it only took about 5 minutes of practice in the shop before we were ready to take to the streets. If you've never tried riding a Segway, it's quite... More

Our guide Bart was an excellent and professional guide. If I had to choose my best experience in Amsterdam, it certainly would be "Bestdam Segway tours"! Thank you

We booked the tour for a small group of four of us before we left Canada. We prepaid and had no trouble with our reservation. Two of our group have previously done Segway Tours in Paris, Chicago and Washington. Bart was very good at teaching us how to ride and gave us enough time to 'master' the equipment. Bart was... More

I booked my tour online before leaving for Amsterdam. It was a rainy day and my expectations were low. To my surprise I was the only person booked for my tour, my expectations sank even lower. Boy was I mistaken, my guide, Bart, spared nothing to ensure I got the full tour rain or not. In fact, I would have... More

We have done many different Segway tours around the world, and they tend to group into two kinds: those with a deeply knowledgable guide who stops frequently to give tons of information, and those with a moderately knowledgeable guide who stops periodically to share brief anecdotes, but allows for long luxurious rides between them. Both have pros and cons, and... More
