The guided Segway tour gives you the opportunity to explore Copenhagen in a fun and unique way in just 1 or 2 hours. As the only officially authorized Segway tour provider in Denmark, you will benefit from touring on the newest Segway machines with experienced guides, ready to give you first class customer service — as a bonus, you will help keep Copenhagen green & clean as Segways are zero-emissions. Arrive 15 minutes prior to start for check-in and training where you will receive your helmet, sign our waiver, get your radio, and meet your guide. You will then be individually trained in driving a Segway on a spacious and quiet training ground until you're comfortable taking to the streets. Don't worry if you haven't tried it before — it is super easy and most people learn it within minutes. The Segway is an incredibly intuitive machine. Some great routes are planned for you on both the 1 and 2-hour tour. All tours begin along the water for a nice stretch in a no-car zone. This is a great way to take off and still see iconic sights such as The Little Mermaid, which is one of the first photo stops. In fact, you will see famous must-see sights on both these tours including Nyhavn, The Royal Opera House, Amalienborg Palace, The Marble Church, Kastellet (The Citadel), as well as some hidden gems. The 1-hour tour covers over 10 of the major monuments and is a fast and fun way to see the city center from Langelinie Kaj all the way to Nyhavn. The 2-hour tour also ventures into the inner city and you'll cruise by The Black Diamond, The Royal Library Garden, Christiansborg Palace, City Hall Square, Tivoli Gardens, the cozy Latin Quarter, and Kongens Nytorv. You'll also take a small break halfway through at the cafe in the Royal Danish Theatre, where there will be some special offers exclusively for you if you wish (no purchase required). A Segway tour is a really great way to get acquainted with Copenhagen, plus you'll get up close to sights where cars are not allowed, and you can cover much more ground faster than you could on foot. You will truly feel the rich history of Copenhagen. And don't worry, the stories are light and fresh but still with substance. Just imagine cruising right up on the square at Amalienborg Palace and waving to the Queen, if she's home. Or driving right through Kastellet (The Citadel) — a still-functioning military site from the 1600s.  After your tour, you will receive a fun Segway Souvenir and you are very welcome to join your guide for a complimentary organic refreshment, and stay to enjoy the waterfront view. All tours include photo stops and only consist of small groups for your comfort and safety. Hope you are now ready to Segway cruise Copenhagen.

Wonderfull trip through Kopenhagen. Afternoon hours and less traffic on the roads make a great experience for sightseeing the city from the bike. E-bikes provided by "Cykelland" were well maintained and comfortable allowing for smooth and tireless ride. In view of safety, we received helmets and headsets alloweing to listen our guide, Alex. We learned a lot about the city itself, people living in it and generally about Denmark.

Very nice tour in which you pass the highlights of Copenhagen and in the meantime receive an explanation. Was our first time with a Segway, but it went without saying. You also get plenty of time to practice beforehand. My kids (20 and 22) also thought it was worth it.

Gustav was a young but engaged guide and we had an amazing food and cycling tour. We were 12 people from many different nations (including Danish) and the tour was a bit shorter than 3 hours. We tasted different food and all seemed to be very authentic.

We had a fabulous tour with Peter! He was a really knowledgeable guide and mad it all such a wonderful experience! Note to more mature participants, my Mum joined me on this tour who is now 80 years old & LOVED the whole experience!!!

Interesting commentary from beginning to end and not too strenuous at all. Overall it was an enjoyable and informative bike tour.
