Glide Through Paris with the Day Segway Tour
The Paris Day Segway Tour is the perfect tour for both those new to the city and Parisian veterans. And we’re sure you’ll both agree that riding a Segway is the best way to see the ‘City of Lights’. This is a great way to glide and cover all the Paris highlights in a short amount of time using quiet roads and bike paths and avoiding busy streets. Your personal Segway will make a magical city come to life even more!

Your tour meets directly at our office, located at 24 rue Edgar Faure, 75015. The closest metro station is Dupleix (line 6), but please note this station will be closed in July & August 2020. You can use the station La Motte Picquet Grenelle (lines 8 & 10) if line 6 is closed during your stay.
Our office is easy to spot from the street – you will see ‘Bike Tours’ & ‘Segway Tours’ signs in our windows. If you are following an online map, be aware that there is also an apartment building with the same street address as our office. If you end up there, simply walk up and around the corner against the direction of traffic (it’s a one-way street) and you’ll see our office in about 30 seconds.
Frequently Asked Questions
Segways Specific Questions
Is there an age or weight limit?
For your riding safety, guests must be at least 12 years of age and weigh at least 100 pounds and not in excess of 260 pounds.
Will I need to put down a deposit?
Yes. Insurance requires that Fat Tire Tours pre-authorize 400€ on a credit card. Please bring your MasterCard, Visa, Amex, or cash with you for this deposit (not Discover). Your card will not be charged, but we will hold onto the details should your Segway incur any damage while in your possession.
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.
If I am pregnant can I join the tour?
Unfortunately, due to the risk to both child and mother, pregnant women are not allowed to participate on our Segway tours.
