Super nice and, above all, competent instruction and good company even during the journey, even in difficult places. This way you learn the really simple operation of the Segway quite quickly and it's fun right away because you start calmly and without fear. We can highly recommend the tour as a start to discover the old town. You get to know the long stretches that you no longer have to walk, and you quickly learn how to explore the rest on foot, which is not already included in the tour anyway. The duration is just right. Sufficient time for the briefing to start with a safe feeling, sufficient time at the sights for photos and looking around. No rush for the ride itself. Everything was hassle free and great to enjoy. Have courage! It's fun and you can still see a lot while driving down the beautiful routes without having to worry about the device all the time. Great for beginners! Absolute top recommendation!

In one word FANTASTIC!! This is really recommended. 3 people take you (small groups of 4-6 people, there were four of us) through the fantastic medieval city to experience it as you could never have done otherwise. You see the nice and beautiful places. You are on your bike with a breeze (is the heat a bit more bearable). They take pictures that they send for free. Without overloading you with information, information about the city is given in a calm, friendly and calm way. At the end a beautiful sunset on a beautiful high spot along the edge of the city. We really enjoyed it (husband wife and two daughters aged 15 and 18). Oh yes, and they also keep your safety in mind by directing traffic as you cross or turn.

I can only recommend exploring Rhodes by Segway to everyone. We covered more than 12 km in 3 hours and saw everything. From the harbor over the entire old town and around the city walls. The great thing was that we weren't tired afterwards and were able to walk to the hotspots/ restaurants. Thanks to our friendly guide Myra

Brilliant activity! Our guide Amalia was great. It took no time to learn how to use the Segway; they were great fun and the perfect way to see the old town. Would recommend this activity to anyone!

Very nice tour through old and new Rhodes. Lots of stops with lots of explanations. Very friendly people. This is definitely recommended!
