We had the best fun. The Segway tour with Margherita was outstnding, she is professional and very knowledgeable. We travelled on the Segways from Alba town into the forest and there we met the truffle hunter. He showed us how he and his dog discovered the truffles and we actually found 4 or 5. Absolutely the highlight of our trip......do not miss it.

My best Segway tour to date. A fun way to experience the beauty of the area. Our guide Margarita was knowledgeable in not only the history of the town of Alba but the region and the vineyards. The folks that we passed on the tour were friendly and waved to us. I think this shows the level of professionalism of the tour company and guide, especially. This is a must do if your in the Piedmont region of Italy! We will be bringing our friends and family so they can enjoy this tour.

My wife and I decided to add segway tours as one of "our things" when on trips. You get to see a lot and the guide usually gives you quicker insights into the area. We've done quite a number in recent years and Alba's is by far the best one we've been on. Marguerite, our guide, was top notch, very friendly, helpful, and provided an excellent introduction to Alba and the surrounding area. The routes she and her company provide are spectacular. The ride ranges through town - which is very nice; but much of the ride ranges out into wine country and up into the high hills with wonderful views in all directions. All the while Marguerita points out and discusses the vineyards and points of interest. If your in the Alba, Turin, or Osti areas this tour is a must.

We booked the Segway tour in advance and went with our 14 year old son. It was great-we had a tour of Alba through the markets and seeing the key sights and then up into the hills round Alba through the vineyards with views of the leaves changing colour beyond Alba. Definitely do this tour-Margherita was a great guide and we all loved it, including the 14 year old who really enjoyed the Segway.

I asked Margherita if she could arrange for us to go out with a truffle hunter , and a few days later we had the most amazing afternoon with Giovanni and his lovely dog Perla. Just walking through the woods was breathtaking itself, but seeing Giovanni and Perla work together to find truffles and to have him explain how truffles grow and how he finds them was the most memorable part of our holiday. Grazie a tutti!

Alba is surrounded by hills of vineyards. Without a car and with weather too hot to hire bikes we took our first Segway tour with the delightful, patient and informative Margherita of Albaway Tours.
The tour is called 'Alba Hills' and is just one of many options listed.
We started with the expected basic instruction on how to use and control the Segway and before we knew it we were slowly making our way through the old town.
Margherita took the time to tell us of the local history during some short stops and she kept a close eye on our progress and local traffic!
As our confidence grew we made our way up the hills - the views were special. We could see snow covered mountains away in the distance and lots of terraced grape vines and fruit and nut trees up close. Tasting a grape or two from the vine was fantastic.
We are pretty cautious travellers but we loved the Segway experience. Margherita was very conscious of risk but she also was great fun and easy to learn from. Would we recommend Albaway Segway tours? Absolutely!
