Had a fantastic time on the Granada: Alhambra and Sierra Nevada Sunset views tour (English). George our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and considerate, checking we were ok at the right times. The electric bikes are a dream to ride making it easy going and such a lovely way to see beautiful Granada. After being shown how to use the bikes we headed off. First up through the Alhambra forest and then the olive trees. The tracks are good and the views are stunning topped off with watching the sun set over the Alhambra. Truly an incredible experience and certainly was a highlight of our trip. Don’t be put off by lack of number of reviews at the moment. The trip is a new addition to the line up of Segway and bike tours offered by TopSegway. Would recommend 100%. George was happy to take photos for us and even gave some good restaurant/tapas places to try out at the end of our tour, which we did and enjoyed. Thank you George! John and Alison UK

Georges and Léo adapted with great kindness and flexibility to our family (2 adults and a 12-year-old child) to offer us a visit in French with a mix of electric bike and Segway. The course is beautiful and extremely immersive. The explanations and anecdotes are captivating. A trip to the top and very beautiful memories! We heartily recommend them!
