Owner description: Fun, informative & safe Segway Tours of Berlin. THE highlight of your stay! We start conveniently from the TV Tower in Alexaderplatz. While we have a large fleet of Segways, we always have small groups to ensure you get the attention and quality you deserve.

Travelling by segway is a fantastic way to see Berlin. Lots of companies offer it, but I'd recommend City Segway Tours. Our guide Walid was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the city. He was entertaining, with a big personality. I guess he tailors his humour depending on the group he's with, but he was delightfully risque with us!
You travel on the road, so must have a driving licence. The traffic can be pretty busy, so it's good that the company insists on participants wearing a helmet. We saw lots of other tours don't, but it seemed to be a sensible precaution.
This is an ideal introduction to the city, giving you a taster of what you'd like to go back to see in more detail.

We were booked a two hour tour of Berlin as surprise by a friend (a very big thank you for that!) - well what a fun and entertaining way to explore the city with a fabulous and knowledgeable guide (Craig) who was ready to discuss any and all aspects of the history (both modern and older), and also the more sociable sides of the city such as the parks, restaurants and bars. We quickly got the hang of the Segways and then we were off on a whistle stop tour of the city that couldn't have been better if we'd designed it ourselves. I really can't enthuse enough about this great way to get around - worth every second and every penny! The only downside was that the children were too young to take part (they stayed with the friend who booked the tour) - they were gutted to miss out on the fun.

Just back from 3 excellently days in Berlin--the highlight without doubt was our Segway tour.
Segways are brilliant fun but adding Walid as your guide will make it a day to remember.
Hugely informative and interesting but even more a great entertainer--he would make a great stand up comedian. If there was space I would give this 6 stars!!!

1000am Saturday morning.
3 days ahead of you. As is the sprawling city of Berlin. You are nervous. It has been several months or years since you last SegWay'd. The first few seconds on mounting, you wobble, quite severely. As everyone does initially.
And then you are off.
30 seconds later you are getting the hang of it. 5 minutes later you can handle "bumps".
And of course by the end of the 30 minute instruction, you are world class - and doing pirouettes for fun. It genuinely is that easy to pick up.
Four hours later - and you have a mental map of the layout of Berlin. You start and finish at Alexanderplatz at the foot of the 358m telecoms tower and take in all major points of interest.
The tip to "hold" off on breakfast - and avail yourself of one of the cafes at CheckPoint Charlie stop is a good one - as you have 30 minutes there.
The description as feeling like a "kid with a new toy at Christmas" is also spot on.
Moreover the Berlin tour is the best I have tried - Prague and Bruges both way less informative and fun. You take in some pretty long runs/stretches of pavement and roads getting upto the 12mph speed cap for most of the tour. But you never feel hurried by the super guides.
Ours was very special - Mariette, from Cumbria - who would switch instantly into fluent German whenever the need arose. But i suspect all their guides are excellent - as this must attract quality instructors as the tips alone must make this a very lucrative profession. But well deserved. And she even managed to find the wayward Saadia from her "I'm by the stones?" distress call.
If you are hesitating at the cost - don't, it's the best value in Berlin.
We were a group of 6 friends and family. Simone and friend making up the perfectly sized 8 pack. Thanks you 2 for the patience shown when one of our ducklings went AWOL!
If you are worrying you won't be able to do it? Fear not. It's easier than bicycling.
And if you get the weather - it's hard to imagine having more fun standing up.

My tip: 1000am Saturday tour leaves you nearly a full weekend left to maximise the benefit of everything you have just observed and picked up.

This was such an informative and fun way to see all the major sights in Berlin.

I was nervous before getting on a segway as I am not known for great balance or driving for that matter but they were so easy to control and the tour doesn't start until you have completed a training lesson with the guide, you are whizzing around within 10 minutes without a care in the world, I cant emphasise enough how easy they are to control. You also stop for a lunch/drink break at checkpoint charlie which was handy as we were on the 10am tour.

The tour was fantastic, Walid our guide was informative and entertaining. He summed up the division of the city of Berlin with the Berlin wall fantastically and I can't praise his tour enough! Best way to see Berlin without a doubt.
