Full description
Start your original Segway tour of Madrid with a short training session to ensure your feel confident and comfortable on the easy to operate mode of transport. Then, see the Royal Palace and discover an official residence of the Spanish Royal Family that is now only used for official ceremonies. Look at Almudena Cathedral (Santa María la Real de La Almudena), built in Gothic Revival and Baroque styles to harmonize with the Royal Palace.

Glide through Plaza de España and marvel at the monument to Don Quixote. Continue to the Temple of Debod, gifted to Spain by the government of Egypt in 1961. Get panoramic views of Madrid from the temple, built in the 2nd century BC, before going to Plaza de Isabel II (also known as Plaza de la Ópera).

Admire the former site of the Puerta de Valnadú (Valnadú Gate), demolished on the orders of Felipe II. See the neoclassical façade of the Royal Theatre (Teatro Real), providing a cultural touch abundant in almost every corner of Madrid.

The only problem is that Madrid is so crowded with pedestrians that it felt quite stressful to Segway through them. Be aware you'll need to deal with some traffic, although drivers (mostly taxis) were courteous around us and it wasn't really an issue once I got used to it. My tour was way longer than I paid for which made it excellent value for money - just don't book this right ahead of another appointment!

Amazingly awesome

Tour was very good. Covered a lot of the city.the guide was very knowledgeable and very accommodating having to repeat himself in multiple languages. Guide was also very attentative and quick responding when a participant fell from their Segway. Highly recommend the 90mins session as it’s a lot of fun. And the time goes very quickly.

Voilà un moyen original de découvrir Madrid. Prise en main du Segway simple et assez rapide. Notre moniteur Ander nous a bien mis en confiance. Il nous a demandé quelle partie de la ville nous voulions faire. Il nous a aussi fourni les explications sur l'histoire de la ville. Bref il a été top et ce fût pour nous une visite très agréable.
