Excellent experience to see the city and its surrounds from a different perspective. The 2hr option is the way to go, and there's a short stop to grab drinks (you stay in the boat). Perfect addition to a day in Strasbourg, and for a special occasion... I took the opportunity to get engaged, and our guide Jerome played a great part in photographing it all while still giving us our personal space.

Wonderful experience! We booked the 2h trip and it was definitely worth it. Our guide Jerome was making this a great experience explaining us some details about Strasbourg. Everything was really nice and relaxed. Definitely something to recommend if you're looking for special experience in Strasbourg.

Segway is hard on the feet. The feet join and begin to hurt. Nevertheless, the tour is an experience. You see a lot of Strasbourg and learn a lot about the history of Strasbourg. Without D Segway, the distance in 2 hours would not be feasible. The guide also takes photos. Super great.

Fantastic trip. The trip was fun and educational. I would definitely recommend it.

The boat trip was the culmination of our Strasbourg weekend. It was so beautiful.
