Berlin is cool, historical, diverse, and beautiful - and can therefore overwhelm as you plan your sightseeing itinerary. Here is a list of some fantastic city tours to help you explore all that Berlin has to offer in almost every way you can imagine.
"See more. Less effort. More fun.” Don’t laugh - you may feel like you look silly whirling around Berlin on a segway, but in fact cruising the streets segway-style has plenty of advantages, enough so that you should consider taking a City Tour.
One of the advantages segway sightseeing is that the tours are very limited in size, meaning your experience will be highly personal and private.
Additionally, just as your means of travel is innovative, so is the tour itself. Instead of a stodgy tour of dates and tired stories, Segway tours offers “a great orientation, all the educational info, heaps of unique and fascinating stories, the opportunity to meet other travelers, fantastic photo ops and superb personal service from your guide.” At any rate, segways are fun and you’re on vacation.
Here are the different segway tours. There are full city tours, mini-Afternoon tours, tours in German and in Spanish. As opposed to walking tours, on a segway you get through a considerable list of top Berlin sights, without feeling rushed.
Each tour begins with a 30 minute orientation, so don’t worry if you’re not experienced. You do have to be 15 years or older to participate. Insurance policy stipulations means a 400 Euros deposit but so much as you don’t crash into a building you should get that back.
