The best Segway experience we had for a while. Mother & Son team to bring the best out of Dresden on a segway. We thank you for being such a pro team. I felt that both of them were looking for our safety. The segway are highly maintained, and with personal care, with an attention to details. We enjoy our visit and our ride together, with a great hospitality and city history. Highly recommended AAA+++

Great introduction. We were able to practice various things (curbs, bumps) extensively so that everyone felt safe on the devices. The tour was very varied between tourist destinations and just driving. We were all super excited and can only warmly recommend this tour.

Great opportunity to get to know Dresden comfortably. Unfortunately, the buses are not open at the top. The night watchman tour was very entertaining and entertaining.

Everything worked very well! We don't need masks, only the chauffeur was a bit difficult to understand because of his dialect Schöne Rundfahrt

A very informative tour. The bus driver did not use the tape, he commented himself and guided the bus tour very well.
