What an experience!! No better way to explore Madrid.
We had a 15 minute tutorial and, although we all felt a bit wobbly and uncertain at first, the moment we were on our way, navigating the Segways became second nature.
Once we got past the pedestrians on the main streets and were let loose in the parks we asked to go to (the company were great at allowing us to choose where we wanted to go) we found that we were driving them at full speed with no hesitation.
Our guide, Frank, worked really hard on his English to explain the points of interest to us and was very flexible with what we did with our time.
Absolutely loved it and will look for Segways on any city break in the future.
If I could have one at home to ride to work on I would!! So easy and fun.
Thanks to the guys who ran the tours and for taking photos for us.
