Glide around on our Private Paris Segway Day Tour.
We were the world’s first guided Segway tour, and we have been perfecting the recipe of fun, safety, and exploration ever since that first departure in 2003. These revolutionary machines make it easy to see the famous Parisian highlights in a short period of time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Segway 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.
