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.

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.

Choose to sit further forward or in the middle of the boat - speakers are not enough. The guide was good but the scales are choppy. Nice ride. You will see part of Copenhagen from a boat.

Very nice excursion to see Copenhagen from the water. The guide has a lot to tell about Copenhagen's sights.

Was very good but the meeting point was too far. Great guide Andrej, thanks!

Nice and kind hosts really got to learn a lot about Copenhagen.

Nice ride and a humorous guide. The weather was super nice.
