This is the tour for you if you are looking for a new sightseeing experience!
The tour was great once it started, but there were a lot of other people there for the same time slot. They split us up into manageable groups for the actual tour, but it took a bit of time to get everyone situated, and they ran out of proper helmets so we wore bicycle helmets. Also, when they say be 15 minutes early, that is not a suggestion. They started the safety briefing/instructions at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time.

A great way to get closer and into areas the bus tours just can't - and so much fun to glide through the city. Our guise was very knowledgeable and informative.

This is the third segway excursion that my wife and I have been on. The others were mostly about riding a segway. Riding it in a field, very controlled travel to different points, etc. This trip was more about seeing the town without having to walk. After a few minutes of instruction we followed our guide all over the city. Down narrow cobblestone streets, up a long winding road to a vista and back down again by the bay. This is one of the best excursions we have ever been on, and we highly recommend it if you are reasonable fit. We are Seniors with no ambulatory issues and had a ball!
