Madsegs provided a thoroughly enjoyable experience and a great introduction to the sights of Madrid and segways. Like the site says, within 5-10 minutes most people will be comfortable using a segway.

There were 5 people in our tour group, which worked really well, and we saw a large portion of west side of the city including Royal Palace and its surrounding areas. The tour was roughly 4 hours long and definitely worth every penny, with regular stops at different scenic points that most tourists would miss.

The segways were started in basic mode, but everyone was on intermediate after 15 minutes. Near the end of the tour we were given the option of Advanced mode which made the segways handle much more responsively and travel up to 14mph.

Lunch and a beer (or soft drinks) were included in the price along with the photos from the day, which were to a very high quality. Anthony burns a CD for you if you don't have a USB stick.

For us, the main selling point for this tour over other, similar tours is that you weren't required to wear a helmet or the stupid high-visibility jackets that most other tours had in the city. They were available if you wanted them. Also the segways were kitted out with tyres that could handle off road terrain, so you could go on the grass and up/down stairs etc.

Madsegs is about 20 minute walk from plaza mayor, but if you're not familiar with the city, just do what we did and try to walk there get lost then hail a taxi. Easy.

Great day out for all the family

What a brilliant tour! First time on a Segway and something I would love to do again. Anthony was a very good tutor and we all quickly became reasonably proficient. I thoroughly enjoyed the stops and the information Anthony shared with us. At the end of the tour Anthony copied the photos of our trip onto our memory stick. This is a must do activity for anyone visiting Madrid I

First time ever on a segway. Got confident to it in 1minute with expert tuition. My wife was nervous but similarly got adept very quickly. We practiced in wide open space in part of the city almost certainly wouldn't have seen otherwise. Doing hands free within 10mins so able to take lots of photos, though Anthony took loads himself and then put them on our camera cards at end. His base is just 20min walk from Playa Major, and it's well worth getting out of the city centre to get confident on them. We stopped for coffee and tortilla at local cafe in glorious sun. Anthony, a Scot who has lived much of his life in South Africa tells you things local guides would never tell you about the city, the buildings, the economy, politics and society in Spain - he's married to a spaniard. There are lots of stops so the time goes really fast. You'll surprise yourself at what you can do on a segway. It's great value for money and great fun.

Booked it for my wife and I to see the city from a different angle. Met Anthony at his office by the river who gave us a quick demo as neither of us had ridden a SEG before. We then had a great 3+ hours meandering around the city, taking in the sights. Anthony took lots of photographs on his camera and we stopped for a beer and Tapas (included). Towards the end of the tour when we got more confident he "tweeked" the Segs and allowed us to speed up down some empty straights. All in all very good value for money and great fun. We received a CD of the photo's to remember our day. +++++++++Recommended+++++++++

We really enjoyed. The segways are a lot of fun and Madsegs is better than others because of the 6+ miles of running along the river and not fighting through downtown the whole way. Anthony as our guide was great - made it a lot of fun and was also a great guide. It is super (super) easy to lean to ride so anyone can do it. I Highly Recommend trying the segway in Madrid, and if you are going to do it - go to Madsegs!!
