This was amazing, first time ever to try it and was really surprised by how much we enjoyed it. We visit Budapest every so often, and this time I wanted to try something different, and was very glad I chose this. Me and the wife went with our guide Istvan, he is a very funny and extremely interesting man. Initially... More

We had a cold and lazy morning, no one wants to get out on such days from the warm room. However I had reserved a trip with Vincze Tamás this morning at Normafa/Budapest. I had never before tried segway, but how he explained, it tokk a few minutes to be familiar with the control. To be short, it was an... More

2 hours full of adrenalin with an amazing instructor (István Réthy) in the beautiful mountains of Buda. Speed, excitement, freedom, happiness - that's what you can experience if you select to try off-road segway at Normafa. Don't miss it!

We've visited the Budapest base and took a medium tour of 3 hours. Tamas (Tomi) was an excellent guide and we've enjoyed the tour a lot. The surroundings are great for such an activity, I'm more than happy to endorse it.

We participated on Witches tour in May organized by HSB. Although the weather was not the best we enjoyed the tour a lot. Our guide Pali was very helpful, he is truly committed to the region, has a great knowledge on local stories and everything worth to be known about the Mátra hills. The segways are in good condition, training... More

We went for the intermediate tour which was 2.5 - 3 hours. We had done an off road Segway experience before but this was a whole new level. The hillside is covered in both cycle paths and genuine off road trails and after 30 minutes of practice along easy paths, the Segways are unrestricted and then we really got up... More

This is a brilliant way to spend a couple of hours. Segways are great fun anyway, but the location here is perfect; much better than dodging pedestrians in the city centre. The forest is beautiful, with varied terrain - more fun and challenging than paved roads/paths but without being too difficult for beginners. (We were told that harder routes are... More

I can't praise this place highly enough. We did a beginners Segway tour and enjoyed every minute. Istvan is fabulous. Professional, fun, safety conscious, entertaining and he even took some photos and videos for us (no extra charge). I was a bit worried about going some way out of the city but it's actually really near and so easy to... More
