We had an excellent time on a two hour segway trip and would thoroughly recommend it. None of us (two parents and a thirteen year old) had been on a segway before but we were shown how to control the segway in the shop and quickly felt comfortable with the controls.
We had booked the El Retiro tour, but as the park was closed, we were given a bespoke tour round many of the central sights (the palace, Plaza Mayor etc) and then down to the river area. We covered loads of ground, saw lots of sights and were given just the right amount of information about what we were seeing. The two guides with our party of seven were very friendly, helpful and encouraging.
All in all, this was a great way to see the City, it was also really good fun and we would definitely do it again. The guides also sent us a whole load of photos from our trip afterwards, at no extra charge, which was really appreciated.More
