Have done several major Segway city tours before and this was right up there. The castle area and its architecture and history is brilliant and the views back over the river looking over Pest are amazing. Our guide Yusef was great, very knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. Never felt rushed and we were able to stop off several times to explore. Good value and much cheaper than if we had turned up on the day and paid direct. Fantastic value!

We had a fantastic time on the segways with our guide Arash. He was so knowledgeable and fun to chat with The segways were a great way to see the city and we got much further than we would have by foot! Would definitely do this again!
