Great fun zipping around Chania with our excellent guide. He really helped us navigate the streets and get used to the Segway. We made plenty of stops to learn about the history of the city and snap photos at scenic viewing points. We had great fun and highly recommend it!

Our segway tour was so much fun. First time for me and our guide was just lovely and patient explaining how to operate the segway. We all had a wonderful educating afternoon with Betty the owner she was very sweet. Highly recommended!!!

It's just fun - definitely worth it. Above all, the journey through the narrow streets of the old town is absolutely amazing. ... and don't worry - after just a few minutes you'll get the hang of it and enjoy the tour!

We loved being able to see so much of the old town - including the beautiful sea front. Travelling by Segway is a fantastic way to tour … and this company was great!!

We really enjoyed the tour, a few short breaks to take a few pictures would have been great.
