Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about our Segways/Segways in Milan
If this is my first time to ride a Segway, will I be able to pick it up quickly?
Your safety is always our highest priority. Therefore, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation of the Segway and its use before going out to enjoy the city
We’ve found that our guests pick up on how to ride a Segway within the first 10 minutes, but we like to take 20-30 minutes to explain the machines, demonstrate the best riding techniques, and then allow time to practice before heading out to see the sites. We like to ensure that every guest feels 100% confident before beginning the tour.
While riding a Segway is fairly leisurely, you will be on your feet for the duration of the tour.
Is a helmet included?
Yes – helmets are included and required to be worn by all Segway guests, for the riding safety of everyone.
Is this tour appropriate for children?
All riders must be at least 16 years of age, as required by law in Italy.
- For the riding safety of everyone, guests must weigh at least 100 pounds (45 kilograms), not in excess of 260 pounds (118 kilograms).
- All guests under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 18 years or older.
My group size is larger than the dropdown menu allows, how can I book?
Please contact us at [email protected] for larger group bookings. But please note that if the party is larger than 8 the group will be split up for safety reasons”
Is there a minimum number of guests?
Yes, our tours typically only operate with 2 guests or more. If you are a solo traveler, we encourage you to reach out to our customer service team to check if other guests have booked on the date of your choice. Please contact [email protected] for any specific requirements or customisation.
Can minors come on tour alone?
For safety reasons, minors (anyone under the age of 18) must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.
Do we go inside the museums and monuments?
Unfortunately, the tour duration does not give us enough time to enter any of the sites that we see on tour. This tour is designed to enjoy the city from a broad perspective and come away with a greater understanding of its history and layout.
Is there a weight/age requirement to ride a Segway?
Yes – all riders must be at least 16 years of age, as required by law in Italy. No exceptions.
For the riding safety of everyone, guests must weigh at least 100 pounds (45 kilograms), not in excess of 260 pounds (118 kilograms).
Could I reserve a guide just for my group?
Yes! Our public tours accommodate up to 8 guests per guide, but we also organize private tours starting at 2 guests. If your party is 8 or fewer, you can toggle to the ‘Private Milan Segway Tour’ option above the availability calendar and reserve directly. Or, if you’d like more information or have questions, please reach out to us at [email protected]. All groups of 9 guests or more will be split into multiple groups, each with a guide, but we’re happy to organize the tour for everyone in your party at the same time.
