My girlfriend and I have just returned from a three-day break in Prague, in which we experienced the 'Grande Tour of Prague' with Prague on Segway.
The tour was booked for the morning of our second day, and although the weather was somewhat wet and cold, the tour went ahead as planned.
Tomas, our guide, was extremely welcoming and made us feel at ease immediately. After spending a couple of minutes with introductions and paperwork we were given one-to-one tuition on how to control the Segway. This was our first ever experience of a Segway, and Tomas was very patient with us whilst we got the hang of it. Within 10 minutes we were ready to start the tour.
Safety helmets were provided, and in addition we wore an extra layer of waterproof clothing and some warm gloves. Gloves are definitely recommended unless it's warm and sunny!
The tour on Segway was like no other tour I've been on. The fact that it was just the two of us and our guide meant that we could stop whenever we wanted to take photos, or find out more about the city. Tomas was very knowledgeable about Prague and stopped at plenty of points of interest to explain their history in an informative and lighthearted manner. He also made sure that he took photos of us on our Segways at several locations throughout the city.
After a couple of hours touring the city, we stopped for a warm drink and a chat in a quiet café, which was eagerly received!
We finished our tour with a wonderful view over Prague from Petřín hill.
The Segways themselves are a huge amount of fun. Being "pedestrian vehicles" you ride on the pavement (sidewalk) for almost the entire tour, so traffic isn't a problem. At up to 12.5 miles per hour, riding a Segway means you get to cover a lot of ground in a short space of time, so you're not totally exhausted afterwards.
Overall, the Segway tour of Prague has to be one of the best things I've spent my money on whilst on holiday anywhere. The tour remains to be the highlight of our stay.
Our thanks go to Tomas - best of luck for the future!

The quick (but thorough) safety and training session before the tour was perfect to get us on our way with confidence. It really is easy -- young and old!read more
I always do something unique when I travel and this tour - Prague on Segway was perfect!! My sister and I took the City Tour on Thursday. Michal did a great job of showing us the city highlights, and taking us to areas that would have taken us days to walk to.
It was so much fun we booked a custom tour for Saturday to Vysehrad. Tomas was our guide and we had so much fun -- we were sorry that we weren't staying long enough to take a third tour! Between these 2 tours, we saw Prague from every angle.
Both Michal and Tomas were professional, personable and made this experience the highlight of our trip. They have a great sense of pride for their city, and were very knowledgeable.
On a personal note: One of the deciding factors to trying the Segway, was difficulty I was having walking the hills and cobblestone streets- my ankles hurt every night.
But I didn't want to see Prague by car or bus... I wanted something more personal. This tour really let us get around and connect with the people of Prague.
Before this trip, neither my sister nor I had been on a Seqway. The quick (but thorough) safety and training session before the tour was perfect to get us on our way with confidence.
It really is easy -- young and old!.
but so do locals

„I got segway tours by Prague on Segway as part of a gift. As an architect - and a local - I thought: This is going to be boring.
But my girlfriend Lucka persuaded me to go. And boy was it enjoyable.
The guide was not only funny, but knew more about Prague than I did. Plus my girlfriend found him quite handsome :). We took a five minute course in how to drive the Segway and then went to a round tour of Prague by night.
After 90 minutes, we both begged and refused to get off of the Segways. And it became one of our best memories and a topic of more than a few evening discussions. I smile every time I remember. And so does Lucka. After two years. What do you remember from any of your vacations after two years?“

You might be afraid you will fall.
But you won’t. Everyone receives a proper Segway training before the Prague segway tour and we don't start the tour until you feel comfortable. We also provide helmets, just in case. The only restriction is weight. For the Segway to operate properly, you must be between 35 - 125 Kgs (72 - 276 Lbs).
You may feel it is expensive.
Consider that you will pay half of what we charge and they will turn you into a sheep, group you together and make you follow an umbrella. Or a flower. We, on the other hand, offer a personal guide just for you (two), plus two Segways, which cost the same as a second-hand car. And this is going to be an experience you will always love to remember.
We are so confident that you’ll like it, that we guarantee you will not be able to wipe the smile off your face by the end of the tour around Prague by segway. If we see an unhappy face, we will give you your money back.
