Margareta was fantastic in her tour of Alba and the surrounding area. What was more pleasing was the patience she showed in how to drive these Segeways to these two '60' year olds; she gave us a 15 minute driving lesson for each of us (probably a few minutes more than usual for us). While reluctant at first, she exhibited... More

We took the trip around the Barolo vineyards. Learning to master the Segway was not that hard, but one should not relax too much on the bumpy gravel roads - on tarmac it is easy. We "drove" all the way to La Morra, which took us through wonderful landscapes. Returned the same way we came, which was a bit of... More

There is just no other way to cover as much ground, as easily and quickly, as you can on a segway. In a car you are moving too fast, on foot too slow and on a bike only the hardiest wouldn't tire on the numerous hills. We reserved the Alba Hills tour which took us through Alba and out into...

We decided to have a tour of Alba and its surroundings in a special way and this was surely a good choice. We went for the tour with in it the visit to Cantina Ceretto. Margherita the owner of Albatour was wonderful and easygoing. She is also a licenced touristic guide, so she knows what she is talking about when... More

My first time on a segway but Margherita put me at ease. We have chosen the Alba hills tour and really had a great 2 hours experience.

We went on the wine tour on an overcast, cold day, but it was still a lot of fun. We really enjoyed riding the Segway through the vineyards. Our guide was excellent and we would highly recommend this to others who are looking for a bit of adventure in Alba.

Amazing experience a must for anyone visiting the area. We had so much fun even though we were quite apprehensive at first but the guide was very patient and accommodating. We became world champions in just 1 hour!! We will definitely go back and do it again.

We started by going through some of the old town then headed up the hills into stunning vineyards, gaining the most magnificent views. One of the... More
