Full description

Begin by learning how to navigate safely on your Segway, before heading out of the city center on bike paths to the Danube Canal. There you can see Vienna from a different side, an aspect of the city that not everyone experiences.

After crossing the canal, ride into the big Prater Park to discover some more territory that most visitors to Vienna don't see. Glide past the Vienna Economics University, before eventually reaching the River Danube. 

Johann Strauss’ most famous waltz “The Blue Danube” is dedicated to the beauty of this river, and whilst there you can decide for yourself if the river is actually blue, or if Strauss may have needed his vision checked.

Following that, continue along the river to a special vantage point which is one of the best views in Vienna. It presents the Danube cutting through the hills of the Vienna Woods. To complete this unique experience, pass the apartment where Johann Strauss composed "The Blue Danube".

Brilliant! We ended up having a private tour as there was just my husband and me booked. The guide, Horst, was brilliant and very knowledgeable. He made sure we were comfortable on the Segways before we set off. We saw more of the sights in Vienna than we were expecting, and less of the Danube, but we were happy with that. Using the Segway was more physical than we expected but lots of fun. We would definitely recommend it.

Some participants should follow the rules more. When people who don't speak German book a German-speaking tour and then stop everything, and not because of the translation into English, I find that pretty rude. The organizer cannot do anything for such participants, but they should be advised to behave.
