Op de damIt is quite an experience to explore the rich history of Amsterdam.

And its narrow streets, bridges, alleys, canals and beautiful old buildings on a Segway from Segwaycitytours-Amsterdam.

 

Amsterdam has about 400 kilometers of bicycle lane.

You can drive on it with a Segway. However, Segways may also be driven on regular roads. The Segway is so maneuverable that you can virtually get to every alley and street in Amsterdam! the Segway can go forwards, backwards and has a very small turning radius. It is a great experience!

 

Driving a Segway, feels like something you have never experienced before.

Simply because there has never been anything like it! Driving a Segway is very addictive, nothing else compares to it. Floating over the streets, without making a sound, is a very good feeling! Even the spirits of people, seeing you drive a Segway, are a bit lifted!

 

Get on the Segway and instinctively find your balance.

Like you would do on any device for transportation with two wheels. But almost immediately you realize that the Segway, finds that balance for you, it feels like it has become one with you, the driver. Lean a bit forward and see that the Segway will do what you intended to communicate with your movement! It feels natural and very relaxed, you are completely in control! SCT-Amsterdam takes you trough the historic streets of the inner city of Amsterdam. Our guide knows a lot of fascinating stories to tell you. All of our guides are from Amsterdam, or have been living in our beautiful city for many years. They are all experienced Segway drivers and tell you, with passion and enthusiasm, all about their city.

However, when indicated 30 days prior to a Private Tour,  with at least 4 participants, we can also assist you with the following languages: German or Dutch.

Call us first +31620204398 to make a reservation, because there are additional costs.

 

We have tours with a maximum of 8 people and we only do the tour when we have a minimum of 2 people and a guide.

We limited the amount of people because, in this way, the guide can focus his full attention on a reasonably small group of people. So, he has time to become acquainted with every one of you during the trip. Subsequently, he can also easily focus the information that he gives, on your personal fields of interest.
