Segway is the first personal transportation that maintains balance on two wheels. With very small dimensions, Segway uses the same space as a pedestrian and it is allowed to go through pedestrian areas. Also, it is specially designed for intelligent and environmentally friendly transportation around the city.
How does it work ?
Thanks to the dynamic stabilization, Segway works perfectly with the body movement. The gyroscopes and tilt sensors allow the Segway to control the drivers gravity center 100 times per second. This way, when the driver leans forward, the Segway moves within the same direction; and when the driver leans back, it accompanies the movement, becoming an extension of your own body.
How secure is it ?
It has been invested much time and effort to ensure Segway`s safety. The revolutionary dynamic stabilization technology enables an exceptional driving experience. Segway systems are redundant and are equipped with sophisticated alerts to avoid any mistakes, which certifies your safety. Our tours begin with a personalized training from our professional guides, that will make sure you can drive safely on a Segway.
Are Tours canceled on rainy days ?
Yes, they are canceled. It´s not as much fun when it is raining. In this case we make an effort to find an alternative date. And of course, if not possible we will fully refund your payment.
