Pedagogy at the top for the handling and the safety side. Nice walk, beautiful discovery just remains to perfect the knowledge a little in order to answer any questions from tourists but in a few groups it will be at the top for the season. Truly a beautiful experience and a beautiful memory. RC

All the staff was very friendly though we were 5 minutes late. The correct meeting point is 9 rue des vieilles douves not place Royale. Our children (11 and 9 years old), my husband and I have found this first Segway experience very pleasant. Sure it will not be the last!

Den Veranstalter hatten wir gebucht, weil die Führung auch auf englisch möglich war. Natürlich sind wir von einem heutzutage üblichen Headset-Guiding ausgegangen. Leider hat die junge Dame jedoch alles ohne Headset machen müssen, mit Stops. Sie war sehr umsichtig als sie uns durch die sehr volle Innenstadt zu manövrierte, fuhr 3x bei rot über die Ampel mit uns (war aber okay für uns) und war schwierig zu verstehen (Aussprache/Betonung). Das Fahren des Segway (unser 1. Mal) hat sehr viel Spass gemacht. Auf der Maschinen-Insel waren wir durch die "Anfahrt" aber nur 20 Minuten.
