We visited Alba by train from Torino and pre-booked the Truffle Hunting by Segway tour. Margherita met us promptly at 10:30 in Piazza Michele Ferrero (4 minute walk from the rail station). We couldn’t miss her as she arrived on a Segway in the piazza:) Her “office” is right off the square, and that’s where she and her friend instructed us on using the Segways. Once we finished our ~30 mins instruction, off we went to meet Massimiliano and his dog. Spring is black truffle time, and his dog found 2 while we were with him. Overall, great day! Would highly recommend as a unique tour option!

I and my wife booked the tour through Internet for the first experience with a Segway. It was a great experience recommendable for everybody
Very easy to get familiar with the Segway and enjoyable to use. Ideal for the up and down hills of Alba. The tour in the downtown was much less exciting than those on the hills. Gorgeous scenarios in the middle of the vineyards. A special mention goes to Francesca, the guide, we get very well together from the beginning. She is outgoing, pretty and very kind. She took us around for three hours instead of the scheduled two hours. You should ask her advise for her sister’s cake shop, delicious! Brava Francesca you made our trip a beautiful day! Thank you.

We are Segway fans, having used them to explore a few other cities/towns in Italy. So we were thrilled to have the chance to explore this area AND take part in a wonderful wine tasting. I will say that the off-road element of this tour made my husband a little nervous, but we were both fine and enjoyed the experience of traveling right through the vineyards en route to the wine tasting. Alessandra was an amazing guide, so friendly and knowledgable. We felt like we got a really clear sense of the area and learned a lot about the wine and traditions of Alba and its environs. We would do this again in a heartbeat...

Alessandra took us on a beautiful segway tour from the city center to Ceretto for wine tasting. She is a talented tour guide who knows a lot about wine and the different wine areas. We learned a lot and we had a really fun time! You get a different view of Alba on a segway! It takes a couple of minutes to get used to it, but when you get on the road and head up to the vineyards, it's really amazing!
