My favorite way to see Madrid! It was so much fun!

We took the 1.5 hour ride down around the royal palace gardens, then over to the river path to see the bridges and soak in the local scene. It would have taken us days to cover all this on foot and it "driving" a Segway is a blast if you haven't ever tried. Our guide was Chris and he gets 6 stars for serval reasons. His command of English was fantastic so we could communicate easily and ask lots of questions. He was super personal and friendly, no salesman talk or "I've said this a million times" drone, and he graciously took pictures whenever we wanted that were awesome because he had done it many times. There's a lot of Segway places trying to get you on the street but I highly recommend this place.

A wonderful introduction to a wonderful city!

What a fun experience! We took the tour on the first day of our visit to Madrid and truly covered a lot of ground in 90 minutes. For the rest of our stay we spent lots of time walking the center of town, constantly finding ourselves in places we had visited during our Segway tour. Our guide Jose provided lots of detailed and entertaining information about the sites we visited. We had been on other Segway tours so we were pretty comfortable segway-ers but Jose helped us quickly get reacquainted with the device and made certain we were safe all along the way. A highly recommended way to see a lot of Madrid in a short time!

Outstanding Option to view this grand gem !

Loved the convinence of this early admission tour. Our tour group of twelve were the first to be admitted before the rest of the crowds. Amazingly , we didn't see another soul until we exited the palace at the end of the tour. Our tour guide was informative and we couldn't have asked for more in terms of his knowledge and history of this grand estate. Hint.... book the tour on Wednesday morning and you'll end the admission with the spectacular changing of the guard at the front of the palace.

Wonderful Madrid Palace and city tour!!!

This tour was excellent and Sean our guide was an expert on both Spanish and Madrid history. He was very engaged and genuine in his pride and passion for his city and country. He even provided local restaurant recommendations per our request. Super nice tour!

Bilingual tour guide was very good and on time. No problems.

Meeting place at the statue was easy to locate. Tour guide did an excellent job at translating to English. The translation was very similar to the Spanish version (meaning that the guide did not add/exclude pieces of information for us English speakers)
