There are many questions we ask ourselves before riding a segway.
Are we going to be accompanied by a guide? Can we rent the segway without a guide? Does the guide tell me something about what I visited? What if I just want to ride a segway? If I already know how to drive, can I ride alone?
From Segway Travel Madrid, we are sure that safety is very important, so based on our experience and that of customers who have made a segway tour in Madrid with us, we ALWAYS advise the use of the guide for a segway route in Madrid.
And now you will know why ?, Yes, you want the segway experience to be 100% real, safe, cultural and fun, the use of the guide is indispensable.
The guide, advises, interacts, knows the way, resolves unforeseen events, gives confidence, is flexible, speaks your language, takes pictures, tells details of what is visited, leads the group and adapts the route to the demands of the group.
It also saves time and avoids busy places, all with the objective of benefiting the group and making the experience as unforgettable as possible.
And something very important that we forget, has an absolute dominance of the segway and is the person in charge of doing the initial training.
It is true that the public who goes on a segway tour for the first time may think that the guide will bore them with a lot of historical and monumental content, that they will be banned from enjoying the maximum enjoyment of the segway or that it will stop them in their interest for touring Madrid … Not much less.
We have said that the guide adapts to the group and the participants so that in many occasions, and always according to what the client requests, the guide is a person who accompanies and advises the best way to reach the desired point.
A segway tour is NOT a walking route, and the guide does not have to be an expert in the history of Spain, Madrid, or Art … the guide is someone in charge of making the most of your segway experience, our guides are people who have studied tutism, art, architecture or are studying it.
Only then is it understood that the group has a good time, the guide himself has a good time and company and customers are happy. In this way for people who have never done a segway route before, the use of the guide is mandatory. And it is mandatory, because part of a maximum of all previous customers. On the other hand, and whenever it is demonstrated that it is known to ride a segway, it is true that for people who have previously mounted a segway, there may be some exceptions that allow you to do the tour without a guide, although it is not advisable.
