Excellent 2-hour tour. As first-time use we all felt safe (our guides took the necessary time to train all of us in the use of the Segways). Guides took several pictures during our tour and even a quick video, stopping at several landmarks sharing interesting facts about Granada. A fun and different way of visiting Granada!

Good service. Recommended. The only problem is that in the middle of the route there was no audio and the explanations of the sites could not be heard. I recommend the bus to allow you to get on and off

It's great to tour the city and you get off and on at the points of interest, they explain very well, and they go by very smoothly, there's hardly any waiting.

You don't have to wait long for the train to come along. It's a little uncomfortable because of some of the bumps on the streets but enjoyable.

Great. Not too crowded, and with stops at the most interesting places.
