Upon arriving at the site, there was no one to attend to what is already causing stress. I called and answering machine. After about 10 minutes, from the scheduled time (11am), Joachin arrived. He attended me very carefully, in English and Spanish, which reduced stress. From there we left for the city tour. It is not a city tour with explanations about the city, but a tour of the important points. Really enjoyed! Otherwise I would not see half of what I saw in the city of Nantes, which is very extensive. The tour was private, there were no other tourists.

an interesting city to drive well

Nantes is a very interesting city and very easy to “experience” with the Segway. The booking went smoothly and it went through the city in fine weather. Unfortunately not a German guide and with the English it was a bit difficult in the conversation. In any case, one should take the tour to the Ille de Nantes with the Compagnie de Maschines.

Unfortunately, the guide hardly spoke any English, but he caught up with his nice manner.

Very interesting and original guided tour thanks to the segway trip.

Very nice trip, thanks to our super guides Nina and Anna !
