Your tour will start slowly by gliding along lake IJ's river bank while enjoying Amsterdam's beautiful waterfront. Next, you will be scooting past the 17th century building of Amsterdam's Maritime Museum towards Artis, the oldest zoo in the Netherlands, past Amsterdam Botanical Gardens and the Hermitage Museum.

An excellent photo opportunity awaits you next when crossing the Amstel river on your Segway taking one of the most famous bridges in Amsterdam, the Skinny Bridge. The tour now enters Amsterdam's canal district with its typical Dutch canal houses. After a brief stop on Rembrandt Square, the route goes towards one of the most famous plazas in Amsterdam, its Dam Square -- another great photo opportunity. Leaving Dam Square the tour will make one final stop on Nieuwmarkt Square before returning to the starting point.

If you want to see the best spots in Amsterdam without walking or pedaling, this Segway tour is the perfect sightseeing fit for you! The centuries old city of Amsterdam is designed ideally for modern transportation on Segways. Your guide will show you the most important sights of the city and will point out the best photo opportunities along the way.

We were the only people on the tour so we had the guide to ourselves. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the city, and the instruction was easy and fun.

I believe Bart was our host and he did a great job. My wife has never been on a Segway but she mastered it well. We saw so much in the time and would recommend this first so you can see Amsterdam and then make choices afterwards.

Loved this, and our guide was terrific. There was just the two of us plus the guide that day, so we ended up with our own private tour. Wonderful. I would highly recommend this.

Wow. This was the highlight of our 4 day stay. Informative. A good chance to get your bearings. And riding segways made us smile for 2 whole hours. The cycle lanes make it easy to feel safe. As a 40 year old who does a very small amount of exercise, I thought handling the segway was fairly easy after 5 minutes.

Quickest and most interesting way to see the whole city.. our tour guide was fantastic and the segways were super fun/easy to handle! Definitely going to continue doing segway tours whenever I travel in cities where they are available.

I love to segway. It is difficult in Amsterdam due to th bike riders hating them. The roads are so narrow. I still loved it.
• Submitted 08 Oct 2017
I'm giving this 4 stars purely for the joy of riding a Segway and getting brilliant views of the canals and streets of Amsterdam. This is a great city to ride around in. However, we did have a relatively new guide and unfortunately he was not confident about providing commentary detail and volume. So not much was added there. However it is still a great experience and I recommend it as a terrific way to get a walk-free view of a beautiful city.

This was a good tour with one disappointment - no audio contact with the tour guide. This is the first Segway tour we have taken in several countries that did not have this audio link. It meant silence until you stopped and sights were discussed and most informative this was. But having been used to an audio link on my other Segway tours I found it strange to not have a running commentary on places we were passing. This was a cold day about 5C and the wind had an added chill factor but the tour was enjoyable. A concern for a couple of people on the tour was discovering that they would be using both cycleways and roads but this was soon put to rest as safety was a paramount concern to the tour guide. The two hour tour gave you a good idea of where everything was, how best to access those areas you were interested in visiting. The lack of audio is the only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5.

Great tour! Make sure to tell your guide what you want to see. He might ask for suggestions. You will see much of Amsterdam on this tour. Using the Segway is easy once you get the quick lesson.

If you have a few hours to spare, go for this Segway Tour in Amsterdam. Well worth the time and investment and the guides are knowledgeable and friendly.
• Submitted 08 Sep 2016
We had a great time with this tour. It was great fun, however the guides need to pay a little more attention to the safety of the group, we had two accidents and only one was caught by the guide. Unfortunately, when we were on tour the guide was dominated by one attendee and then did not pass the information on to the group of the history of the city. We did have a great time seeing Amsterdam, and would certainly go again. Especially now that I have some Segway experience

Guides were flexible and adjusted the route to places we wanted to see, which was great. However, the "script" needs work. Lots of history and description of the mechanics of reclaiming land, laying out the city, maintaining water elevation, info about town events was not included.
