Everything is excellent - weather, tour guide Stephen

It rained in the morning and the instructor Paul comforted me that weather would get better in the afternoon. It was sunny but not hot, with some breeze. We passed some scenic tourist areas. Most of the time, I am not able to join a segway tour in other European countries as I can't make up the minimum number of people to make a group. However, this City Segway Tour does public tour which is available on weekends. My tour guide Stephen is great. I am the only English speaking guest in this group of 7 people and Stephen took care of me on the whole tour. He gave clear instructions on use of Segway as well as explanations on the scenic places that we've been to. He did more than he should as a guide by asking the receptionist to grant me a special permission for the Museum and he also grabbed a booklet in English for me. Stephen, this is highly appreciated.

An interesting Segway tour of Zurich

The instruction session before the trip near the Strandbad Mythenquai was perfect. I discovered a new, really lovely side of Zurich. The explanations about the parks and building from our guide, Stefan Mathys, were just right...not too long or too short... I took part in a similar tour in Lucerne a year ago. Part of this took us to the outskirts of the city (pretty rural) and our Segways were, perhaps therefore, somewhat faster. Perhaps you could incorporate something similar in Zurich, e.g. going out towards Dolder. Of course I do understand that it's reasonable to cap the maximum speed at 15 km/h in the city traffic. But being able to drive faster on the Segways is also an experience of course. My 3 colleagues were really delighted with the tour. (They have never ridden a Segway which was calibrated to go faster...) Best wishes H. Furrer

Great afternoon

My family of 9 decided to do a Segway tour of Zürich. I booked a few weeks in advance. We were given directions on where to meet our guides. They were there early and spoke English very well. It was cold but we were prepared. We had a great time. They gave excellent training. Would highly recommend them!!

Very fun, and an amazing tour of Zurich!

I would recommend this Segway Tour to everyone! My wife and I had never been on a Segway, but the instruction was excellent, and we became comfortable with it in just a few minutes!

Perfect way to see a foreign city

We ended up having a private Segway Tour in Zurich. Our guide was excellent and informative. We would definitely recommend it to anyone.
