I had a brilliant time on the Segway tour with tour guide Arthur. He was extremely knowledgable, very friendly and easy to chat to. I would highly recommend this tour to someone who wants to learn more about the city. Also the Segway’s are great fun :)

We were a bit afraid of riding a Segway - it was no problems - first 15 minutes of training. Ms. competent guide - showed everything that should be seen from the perspective of segway driving. In addition, nice places regarding food, etc. We recommend.

it was a great activity made even more fabulous by our guide Arthur. he was able to tell us some stories and legends about the city and he always did it with sympathy and fun.

Great Trip, Guide Arthur was very informative about Krakow. Would Recommend to see the old Krakow town on a Segway.

Although the time of one hour is not enough, we got a great first impression of the city despite the rain.
