    doing a bike tour is a fantastic way to see the city - you can cover way more ground vs. walking and more personal with a guide vs. jumping on & off a city bus. there is no way we would have gotten to see as much of the city as we did in about 3 hours. and our guide adelina was terrific - she stopped at all the city highlights and provided great background about the sites. and no e-bike needed as the route is nice & flat.

Really enjoyed learning to ride the segway and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about what she told in a genuinely enthusiastic way. All in all the tour was very enjoyable. Sidenote: I did hurt myself when speeding a couple of times because my brain automatically did something different than I was taught to on the segway when things went wrong (likely because I'm used to biking) so do be careful when trying out the speeding option in the city.

Great to discover the sites on a Segway! My daughters 11 and 14, and I really had a blast. Even my wife who had her reservations beforehand enjoyed not having to walk and master the Segway in a couple of minutes. Fun to swoosh by the "walking tourist groups". Thanks for the advice to go see the museum with the Roman ruins excavations! We recommend the Segway tour for everyone!

Excellent guide. Knowledgeable and fun. Great coaching to start with and a fine tour around medieval Valencia to follow. Only praise for this experience. I definitely recommend it to others. Great value for money.

An original discovery of Valence with a great guide who also adapted to children. We highly recommend this original city tour!

Very fun experience and you also learn some history
