The segways were well maintained and worked beautifully. The individual training gave us confidence for the ride. The guide was knowledgeable and informative. We stopped often to look at special places for more in depth history. Very pleasant and just the right amount of time.

Whe had a really great time and an amazing tour thanks to our guide Steve! Driving the Segway was a blast and the guide's knowledge of the city and its history was awesome. My boyfriend is Canadian and I am Bavarian. We took this tour so my Canadian (who does not speak German) could enjoy the city. I also learned things about my home city that I did not know! Thank you

Stevio was such a great guide. He was very thorough and encouraging when showing us how to use the Segway's. We were impressed with his knowledge of German History, especially being Irish. We felt we covered all the major sites in Munich which needs to be seen, with nothing left out. Our group size of 4 was ideal and we all got along extremely well and encouraged each other. I have travelled a lot and participated in many different tour groups, this one was by far the best.
