“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

My husband and I have never been on a Segway before but with a little practice and a wonderful instructor and tour guide named Chryssiis we were soon off on the garden tour. Chryssiis made it easy and fun. She took extra time with on the tour so we could see the President of Greece drive into his residence and then the Changing of the Guard there. Chryssiis had a lot of knowledge to share along the way and in excellent English. Wonderful, fun way to see Athens without all the walking with a reasonable fee.

“A great way to tour Athens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Four of us had looked up this Segway operator before heading to Athens and knew that it would be a perfect thing to do on a Sunday when much of Athens is closed. We had a guide to ourselves who was fantastic (Gabriella) -- she was friendly, fluent in English, and knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited. Three members of our group had never been on a Segway before, but they got the hang of it very quickly. We chose the National Gardens option because we had already toured the Acropolis and figured there'd be less traffic/congestion in the Gardens. (It was also cooler in the shade.) We ended up also seeing parts of the Acropolis from a different perspective anyway. I highly recommend it for 59 Euros.

“Los of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stumbled across one of the Segway staff whilst we were out and about. He discounted the price of the tour and signed us up. We were even given some advice about how to fill in the next hour whilst waiting for tour to start.
We have never done segways before, and after having a little bit of trouble in the first couple of minutes, i got the hang of them. By the end of the tour I was an expert!
Segways are a great way of covering a lot in a short time frame. We saw the main sights and some off the beaten tracks sights as well.
Lots of fun and would highly recommend.

“Good tour to cover a lot of ground”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We have done segway tours in Spain and Paris. A good way to cover a lot of ground- we spent 3 hours on an evening tour. A suggestion would be to have a stop for a snack/drink at a local spot. Also, several times the guide asked us if we wanted to go here or there, when visiting we consider them to be the expert and to know what we should an shoudnt see. Probably could have done this in less time.Also, both previous tours gave us a photo disk of what we saw.
