Copenhagen: 1 or 2-Hour Segway Tour

1. Copenhagen: 1 or 2-Hour Segway Tour

The guided Segway tour gives you the opportunity to explore Copenhagen in a fun and unique way in just 1 or 2 hours. As the only officially authorized Segway tour provider in Denmark, you will benefit from touring on the newest Segway machines with experienced guides, ready to give you first class customer service — as a bonus, you will help keep Copenhagen green & clean as Segways are zero-emissions. Arrive 15 minutes prior to start for check-in and training where you will receive your helmet, sign our waiver, get your radio, and meet your guide. You will then be individually trained in driving a Segway on a spacious and quiet training ground until you're comfortable taking to the streets. Don't worry if you haven't tried it before — it is super easy and most people learn it within minutes. The Segway is an incredibly intuitive machine. Some great routes are planned for you on both the 1 and 2-hour tour. All tours begin along the water for a nice stretch in a no-car zone. This is a great way to take off and still see iconic sights such as The Little Mermaid, which is one of the first photo stops. In fact, you will see famous must-see sights on both these tours including Nyhavn, The Royal Opera House, Amalienborg Palace, The Marble Church, Kastellet (The Citadel), as well as some hidden gems. The 1-hour tour covers over 10 of the major monuments and is a fast and fun way to see the city center from Langelinie Kaj all the way to Nyhavn. The 2-hour tour also ventures into the inner city and you'll cruise by The Black Diamond, The Royal Library Garden, Christiansborg Palace, City Hall Square, Tivoli Gardens, the cozy Latin Quarter, and Kongens Nytorv. You'll also take a small break halfway through at the cafe in the Royal Danish Theatre, where there will be some special offers exclusively for you if you wish (no purchase required). A Segway tour is a really great way to get acquainted with Copenhagen, plus you'll get up close to sights where cars are not allowed, and you can cover much more ground faster than you could on foot. You will truly feel the rich history of Copenhagen. And don't worry, the stories are light and fresh but still with substance. Just imagine cruising right up on the square at Amalienborg Palace and waving to the Queen, if she's home. Or driving right through Kastellet (The Citadel) — a still-functioning military site from the 1600s.  After your tour, you will receive a fun Segway Souvenir and you are very welcome to join your guide for a complimentary organic refreshment, and stay to enjoy the waterfront view. All tours include photo stops and only consist of small groups for your comfort and safety. Hope you are now ready to Segway cruise Copenhagen.

What people are saying about Kastellet, Copenhagen

I had a wonderful tour with Christina as the tour guide. It felt like an almost semi-private tour due to the small number of tourists per session. The tour itself gave us, tourists, a view of the city in a different perspective by driving along the bike lanes of Copenhagen where the city is famous for. I took the 2 hour tour which I initially thought a long session, but I found out I want more. Definitely recommending this tour to anyone who wants to see Copenhagen in an entirely different, but fun, perspective.

Segway tours are such fun! Don't worry whether you'll be able to manage the Segway or not, you will. It's a great way to see a city and to cover a lot in a relatively small time and it's such a laugh watching people zip around. One tip is, dress a little warmer than you expect to need too, there is a bit of a wind chill as you zip around and as you're not moving your body much (like running/walking) you can easily get cold.

A great tour and tour guide who showed us some very interesting locations which we would never have seen or even noticed, on an easy to operate Segway. Very informative and very enjoyable morning. Thanks very much for a great experience

Was very good but the meeting point was too far. Great guide Andrej, thanks!

Excellent equipment, knowledgeable guide. What more can be said.
