Really fun outing for all the family. Daniel from Segway Tours made the whole booking/meeting process easy. We were a mixed group of ~12. We had individual tuition for 5 mins, zooming round a tennis court and then off we went. You stop a few times, past a lighthouse and on to Morro Jable for a break. It's super fun and very easy once you get to relax and enjoy it. Well done to the team (Jana and Anna temp helpers were fab!).

From start to the end fantastic experience. Catamaran crew Diego,Hugo and Vincent were very professional with such a friendly and warm approach. Drinks and food on board...delicious. We highly recommend taking trip with them. Thank you.

Abbiamo riservato con GYG il transfer A/R per l’isola di Lobos. Servizio puntuale e personale molto cordiale. Consigliato.

We visited interesting places and the lunch was good. Good value for money.

Very nice experience. Good atmosphere on the boat and very pleasant islands
