Frequently Asked Questions
Segway Specific Questions
What is a Segway?
The Segway Human Transporter is the first of its kind-a self-balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do. Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway sports high-tech gyroscopes that automatically respond to your body’s movements, “sensing” when it should speed up and slow down.
You stand on a small platform between left and right wheels as you hold onto handlebars at a comfortable waist height. The Segway handles the balancing for you, so that you’re always upright as you glide through any environment.
Are there restrictions on who can ride Segways?
Yes. Riding Segways in Germany come with a few restrictions:
- All participants must be over the age of 14 and any participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
- Each participant must weigh between 100 lbs (45 kgs) and 255 lbs (117kgs).
- Women who are pregnant are not permitted to ride Segways.
- We have a strict policy against alcohol consumption and Segway operation. Alcohol is forbidden on all Segway tours and any client suspected of drinking before or during a Segway tour will immediately forfeit their tour and no refund will be given.
Is there a damage deposit for the Segway tour?
While no deposit is taken before tour, you will need to fill out a fast disclaimer and damage waiver form before joining tour.
How long do the Segway tours last? What if I can’t take part in the whole tour because of a previous engagement?
Our Munich Classic Segway Tour last about 3.5 hours, including a short training session at the start of the tour. As you will need to stay with your guide while on Segways, it is not possible to leave the tour early.
How many people take part in the Segway tours?
Our tours are very popular, and for good reason. We highly recommend reservations for all of our tours, but are happy to accommodate walk-ups as space is often available. To make sure our tours are fun, safe, and a great experience for everyone, we have extra guides on hand should we need to split larger groups.
How far in advance do I need to reserve?
Occasionally we do have space available should you call the morning of your desired tour. This, however, is rare and we suggest you reserve as far ahead of time as possible. We tend to fill all of our tours.
Can I rent a Segway without a guide?
Unfortunately, we cannot rent our Segways out to individuals without a guide. Since our tours are virtually always full, we need all machines for our tour customers.
