“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Amazing tour - a must if you are in Budapest. Me and my partner went to the shop and booked a tour - expecting to join a group of other people, however, when we turned up for our tour 2 days later we found that it was just the two of us, which was a brilliant suprise. Our guide Thom (and the lovely lady he was trainig as a tour guide) showed us how to use the segways and after abit of practice we were off. It is honestly one of the best tours I've ever been on. Thom stopped at all the major tourist points (as well as some others) and was very knowledgable. He was also very good with a camera and would stop and take photos whenever we wished. I can not recommend them enough - if you go to Budapest then this is a must.

“Another great segway experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Using a segway is certainly one of our favorite ways to tour a city. If you have never tried it, please don't hesitate to give it a go, and this would be a perfect place to start. Our guide, Balázs, was great fun. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Budapest, so not only only was it a huge amount of fun, we learned a great deal about the city. We've taken many segway tours around the world and he was probably one of the nicest guides we have had. He was very mindful of everyone's safety, which is a plus in a busy city.
The weather was cold and snowy but Balázs was game and didn't rush us. I strenuously encourage dressing warmly, gloves. hood, warm shoes and socks, very heavy coat if you are planning a tour this month. We all dressed for the weather and had a great time.
Balázs was very patient and took lots of photos and video's for us with our cameras. As a result, we have some terrific digital memories.
As with many tours that you haven't paid for in advance via Paypal or credit card, I recommend taking cash, as credit card machines can be less than reliable. There are however alot of ATM's in the city that have English prompts. And, FYI, you get the actual exchange rate, with no commission fee. His shop was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel by the Chain Bridge. Don't miss this tour if you are in Budapest, I'm smiling just thinking about it.

“A must do, dont miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

this is a must do attraction every where, it gives you a real feeling of the city and let you see alot of places in a shorter time.
aside of that the freedom that the segway makes you feel while you are breathing the fresh air on the move.
moreover those people specially added alot to my experinece , there was that guide (Bogacsi Balazs) that knows the city pretty well and gives you a real insider look. i will upload the video soon on youtube to see it live.

“Simply brilliant......do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

My wife spotted the opportunity to do a Segway tour when she was researching for our January 2013 trip. Something that I have always fancied doing but not possible in London. We walked from our hotel to the tour office and met the office manager and our tour guide - Bogacsi (sp Borash). Really nice and friendly guy who took us through some basic training & practice before we set off on a tour through the Jewish quarter on to the City Park. The tour was around 2 hours and although we did get very cold at times given the weather was around 0 degrees C, I didn't want to stop. It truly is a great way to see the city in the company of a very knowledgable guide plus the Segways are just amazing bits of kit - really easy to use after just a few minutes of practice. Make sure you do this while you are here - simply brilliant fun!
