Just got back from Berlin. There were 6 of us and we booked a Segway tour in advance.
I would thoroughly recommend (If you can stand on 2 feet) you do the same to find your way around the city. Our guide Walid was very attentative and reassuring in our 30 minute training exercise. The Segway is really easy to master.
Walid soon worked out that although we wanted to see the sights and learn a little we were there to have a few laughs. The next 3 hours turned out to be the making of our weekend and we will always have fond memories of Walid and his little anecdotes. We came away having seen all the stunning architecture and important sights Berlin has to offer, thoroughly more educated than when we arrived. This again was all thanks to Walid and the way he explained everything in a simple and sometimes humorous if not Hilarious manner. We totally enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely do it again. The following day we hired bikes from fat tire which was also a good safe way to get around (although we did miss our little friend Walid a bit).
We also did the open top bus tour on the Friday which does not compare to the experience you will have on a Segway.
MY RECOMMENDATION WOULD BE DO THE SEGWAY TOUR AS EARLY AS YOU CAN ON YOUR BREAK. Then hire bikes for the rest of your visit.
