Overall rating

4.8 / 5

A sunny discovery stroll in a very pleasant segway in Strasbourg, facilitated by the pedestrian / cycle paths and without too many people at the end of August. The 2 hours were well appreciated. We were able to spot places where we returned in the afternoon for a more classic complementary walking tour and do some shopping. We continued the next day by renting an eBike from the same One City Tour rental company to do a good part of the forts track, which is also very pleasant. Get Your Guide will therefore have made it possible to book the segway just in time when a favorable weather window has opened up.

Everything worked out great from the booking, payment, cancellation option, reminder the day before, description of the meeting point and the tour itself.

Great way to get an overview of the city. Local guide great, perfect level of information. active, informative, individual (bikes were "okay")
