Cruise through Berlin on a self-balancing Segway and see the city like never before. The 3-hour adventure combines the effortless joy of Segway riding, with a comprehensive tour of Berlin’s major attractions.
What to Expect
Cruise effortlessly through the parks and streets of Berlin on a half-day sightseeing Segway tour. Traveling in small groups of no more than 5 people per guide, you will get highly personalized attention, and a more intimate experience of the historic city.
In 3 hours, you will see all the main sights, stopping every few hundred meters to soak them in, hear fascinating anecdotes, take pictures, and discuss Berlin’s brilliant history. Your native English-speaking guide will also explain present-day facts and lifestyle facets, answering questions you may have.
Stop at the Berlin Wall, wander through Checkpoint Charlie, and stand in the death strip under a watchtower. Learn why the Berlin Wall was built, what led to its fall, and how Berlin has come to terms with its past. Stand on top of Hitler’s bunker, where years earlier the Nazis had their famous book-burning. See the Reichstag, and grasp how its fateful burning led to Hitler’s rise to power.
Learn how the mighty Prussians molded Berlin into a European power. And glide through the Brandenburg Gate, over Museum Island, and across the Gendarmenmarkt, turning heads as you tour the city on a very futuristic mode of transport.
