“Wheeeeeeeee......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

First time on a segway so was a little nervous at first, but I soon got the hang of it. Really enjoyed the bits in the park.. was very nervous going along the canals, one quick lift of your hand to swat a fly and you could find yourself going *splash*... and one or two parts in heavy traffic can be a bit scary but you get used to it.

The guide was very nice - took lots of photos for us. The tour was slightly interesting, I learnt more from the canal boat tour but this was much more fun and much more exciting.

We skipped the red light district for some reason, which was disappointing... odd to do a tour in Amsterdam and skip one of the biggest tourist areas.

Anyway if you're looking for something different this is definitely worth it.. we didn't want it to end!

“Thoroughly enjoyed our Segway Tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had a great time on our Segway tour of Amsterdam earlier this week! This was our third time riding Segways in different cities, and our first time on the "newer" machines! We enjoyed Branden's tour very much!

My only critique was that the tour seemed to focus a bit on pointing out nightlife, and some of the other "pursuits" only available in Amsterdam - but this probably had more to do with Amsterdam than us!

Thanks again!

“Fun way to get a taste of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Had a fabulous time touring around Amsterdam on our Segway tour. Daniel was a great guide and instructor. Very patient with my rather nervous sister. The photos of us on the Segways that were emailed and posted on FB were a nice surprise.

“Absolutely brilliant! Best birthday treat ever, saving up now to go again :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We had the best trip to Amsterdam for my birthday, it was fresh out but it didn't dampen the Segway tour! Our guide, Brandon was friendly, patient and informative :)
Excellent value for money and should be an experience everyone should do when visiting this amazingly cool city.
Definitely going again and Best Dam Segway Tours will be out first stop :)

“The best way to see the city, excellent fun and better than a bus tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Nothing to dislike about this. Our tour guide Brandon was very knowledgeable about WW2 and very friendly. Me and my Wife had never touched a Segway before but his training was excellent so nothing to worry about there. So easy to master you won't want to walk again or do one of those horrible bus tours!
