We had an amazing time on our 2 hour Segway tour. Our teenagers thought it was the best part of our 2 week trip! George is really nice and so fun. Very accommodating to what we were wanting and gave us different information from other tours. Stories were fun for the teenagers. Segways were really easy to use and although we like to walk, we covered much more of ground we would have without the segways.

Belén has been our guide, and the truth is that we couldn't have had better luck. She has been super charming, and has answered all the questions we have asked her (and there have been quite a few). It shows when someone is prepared for the work they do, and with it, it shows and with a note!

What an amazing way to see and learn about the city. Our guide Adolfo was well educated on the history of the city and gave us a good understanding of how the area developed. Great way to cover the whole city and then allows you recount your steps to the places you want to see.

This Segway tour is by far the best way to see the wonderful city of Granada. Our guide Alberto was really nice and patiently showed us how to use them before launching on the amazing tour through the magical streets of Granada

Adolfo was a great guide and I felt very safe on my segway over the 2 hours we had together.
