Owner description: Segway Station was set up to bring the Segway tour experience to Old Nicosia. You can view the sights of Old Nicosia and get an orientation to this ancient city at a fraction of the time it would otherwise take; and at the same time experience the Segway smile. Segway Station is located at the corner of Aischylou Street and a small, quaint walking street which includes a coffee shop, a bar and various craft shops. Segway Station offers a relaxing cafe/lounge area where you can relax before and after your tour. It also offers free WiFi, for those of you who cannot wait to upload your photos on your Facebook account, and Tweet about the day’s events. To see the many articles written about us, please go to our website, "in the media" section. The site also contains maps of our location.

“We enjoyed a whole day”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We came up to this tour by tripadvisor which even local people do not know. Nicossia in August is very hot, around 40 centigrade. We were hesitating to visit Nicossia, but after reading a review of Segway tour, we stopped hesitating. On the same day we rented a car in Paphos, and came to the station. Streets in the center of Niccosia is a bit complicated. It took some time to find a location.

On the day, we were luckly the only couple in the tour. So the guid leader could pay a lot of attention to us. My Segway experience was the first time, but it was easy to operate. Under very hot temperature, walking with help of Segway was the best choice. We could visit a lot of places which we could even not if we walked by foot. I booked only morning tour, but later we asked an additional tour in the afternoon so that we could see more. It was worth joining this tour. We are satisfied a lot.

“Really good fun”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We visited the segway station as a group and had a great evening out. The Segways are great fun and easy to get to grips. The tour lasted a couple of hours and we saw lots we might not have seen otherwise. A brilliant evening out!!!

“A fantastic way to see Nicosia”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Went on the 7pm tour of Nicosia with 8 friends and we had the most excellent time. Arrived to jugs of lemon squawk and nibbles. The tour itself was so much fun and we all go the hang of the segwaystationcyprus fairly quickly, after a practice run beforehand! As a resident here for three years we saw so much more of the city this way and our guide was relaxed yet informative! We arrived back to the Segway station halfway through the tour to refuel with delicious sweets and more drinks, all of which are included in the price.. I would definately reccomment this tour as it is such good value for money and so much fun!

“Do this in Nicosia!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Our first night in Nicosia and we thought that an evening (1930-2130) would be a great way to get introduced to the capital of Cyprus. Without a doubt, Andrew and Irene took great care to ensure that we had a safe and adventurous time. Don't worry about looking like a tourist or being a bit nerdy on the segway....it is an absolute blast (and educational to boot)! Plus, half way through, we were brought back to the main shop and prepared, what I assume was, a traditional Greek Cypriot desert. Very cool. Very fun. Very informative.

It is 100% worth the price of admission.

(The only thing that could make this better would be if the tour could extend to North Nicosia, so let's hope that is possible by the time my wife and I make it back!!)

Thanks Andrew and Irene, we had a great time!

“A great way to see Nicosia”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We took the 7pm tour of Nicosia in a group of 5 led by Irine. As other reviews have mentioned we were greeted with a very welcome cool drink of either Rose water or Lemonade. After filling in the paperwork, we were given an introduction to the Segways which took into account the different abilities of the group. We were able to practice around the Segway station which had large plant pots to weave in and out of, a ramp and a kerb all of which proved to be valuable experience for the tour which was to come. Two of us were first time visitors to Nicosia and the other 3 have lived in Cyprus for years but the tour appealed to all. Irine was a great guide and prompted us to take photos at relevant stops. After an hour and a half, we were back at the Segway station for a drink and snack before we headed off for the rest of our tour. We've often gazed enviously at Segway tours in other countries but had never had the time to take one. Now that we have, we'll be hoping to find them in every city that we visit and hope that its the same professional set-up that the one is Nicosia is.
