Full description
Climb aboard a self-balancing Segway to explore the most beautiful park in Madrid. Start with an introduction to the electric vehicles, and once you are comfortable on the Segway, glide over to the so-called "Barrio de las Letras" ("Literary Quarter") where some of Spain’s major literary figures, such as Cervantes and Lope de Vega, used to live. Journey down Calle de las Huertas to reach the Prado Museum, a world-famous temple of art. Then, follow your guide past one of the most beautiful churches in Madrid. See the magnificent facade of the Iglesia de los Jerónimos before arriving at Retiro Park. Ride around the park for about 40 minutes and see landmarks such as the lovely pond, Crystal Palace and monument representing Lucifer's fall from Heaven. Enjoy the relaxing sensation of gliding along the park's large avenues. Depart the park and make your way back to the start point, passing the Puerta de Alcalá (Alcalá Gate), Palacio de Cibeles (Cybele Palace) and Puerta del Sol at the true heart of the city.

With this activity we make a mixt between visit and fun to ride a Segway Children (mine was 14 years old) are enjoy to follow other participants with such modern machine. The configuration on the city (special way for bicycle, space for all,...) is ideal. The security is insured by the experimented guide and by an adhoc equipment. An activity to make absolutely.

A fantastic experience!

Will definitely do another Segway tour when I am next in Madrid. It's a quick way to get the highlights of the area you are visiting, and the experience of riding on a Segway is incredibly fun! Once you get use to it, it's the easiest thing to use to get around.

Our guide Efram was great and was able to juggle the information for both us in English and local tourists in Spanish . The tour was supposed to be 1.5hrs but it lasted more than that cause we took our time , taking pictures and walking around in El Retiro and having fun ! It’s my first Segway tour so nothing really to compare to but the experience itself was great , and for one of my girls that couldn’t master the operation Efram paid special attention and escorted her throughout the tour. Highly recommended !
