Know More about this tour

Never ridden a Segway? Dont worry as its as easy as just leaning forwards! Every tour starts with a practice session next to the State Opera House in a small square. And only when youre confident and comfortable will you set off on your Budapest adventure. A Segway tour is a wonderful way to discover the city. Not only are you in a comfortable standing position, but youll be surprised by how much ground you can cover in a relatively short time.

The 1-hour short city tour is a terrific introduction to the city and takes you past the State Opera House, St stephens basilica and the House of Parliament. Here youll enjoy a wonderful panoramic view across the Danube to Buda castle, Matthias church, Fisherman's bastion and Margaret island.

On 2-hour morning or afternoon tour youll glide up the fabulous Andrassy avenue, surrounded by huge Neo-Renaissance mansions and lined with shops and restaurants. From the spacious monuments of Heroes square, through the peaceful and green City Park, to the foreboding Vajdahunyad castle, youll be surrounded by wonderful sights as you drift by. Youll visit the impressive State Opera House and the Hungarian Parliament building. From here you can enjoy the stunning view across the Danube with Buda castle, the Matthias church, the Royal Palace and Fishermans bastion all looking as if they appeared straight out of a fairy tale.

On the 2-hour evening Segway tour you'll ride to St Stephens Basilica the Parliament and then onwards to Margaret island. And while crossing Margaret bridge, you can enjoy the magnificent UNESCO Heritage protected panorama which includes the Chain bridge, Parliament, the Buda Castle district and Gellert hill. On our return you'll glide through the citys main inner town sights. As dusk falls, some of these will be illuminated, offering stunning photo opportunities.

This Segway guided tour provides you with 1 or 2 hours to get to know the sights of downtown Budapest. Your informative and knowledgeable guide will entertain you with histories and tales as well as being a mine of other information. Feel free to ask anything. By the end of this tour youll have discovered not just the architectural beauty, but also the historic and cultural context that helps make Budapest such a wonderful city to explore.

    Kira was our guide, and she was wonderfully entertaining, friendly and kind. She taught us quickly how to use the Segways and we were off. Her knowledge of the attractions was impressive. She kept pace with us, and was accommodating when we needed to stop. Overall it was such a fun and great experience. I would, and will,do this again and again and again in many cities. Would highly recommend.

    Our guide, Kinga was wonderful. Being an older couple, over 65, I was a bit nervous about being capable of working the Segway. Kinga took her time letting us get used to the machine on the stores quiet side street beforehand. Having been in Budapest for a week, we had already seen quite a few sites. Kingo was kind enough to change the tour route so we took in the island and some additional parks and places we have not really been too. It was lovely and the speed was just right. We had many stops to rest and hear about particular buildings which was fun. Except for the need to use your feet quite a bit on the Segway, if you have no other limitations I would Highly recommend this form of viewing the city. I will use zebra tours again should we be lucky enough to return to Budapest and will definitely recommend this to friends.

    HAd a superb time. Balint was great as a guide. We managed the Segway really easily and we had a 70 year old couple who managed it easily as well. They were on the 6th segway tour. A super way to see the city. Highly recommend it

    Hunor was excellent. It was clear he’s very knowledgeable and knows far more than a script. He answered all our questions with a lot of good information.

    Additionally, the tour company was so accommodating. I screwed up the date and missed our tour. When I called they rebooked with no problem. So nice!

    A+ tour.

    Awesome and knowledgeable guide, even though I was the only person on the tour they still conducted the tour and the guide took me to many more places then what was mentioned... This is the best way to go around Budapest within a short time.

    Even with the questionable slushy snowy weather we had a blast. Bring gloves if you can, or buy them for a couple dollars at the meeting point if you forget them me. We had a great time learning to Segway, and the sites of Budapest were amazing. We even managed to show up at Parliament just in time to watch the changing of the guards! Our guide was Esther and she was quite knowledgeable. Ill always remember the year 1896 now!

    This was one of the best Segway tours we've done. We've done them in Norway, Mexico, Chicago and Coronado Island San Diego Christiana was a fantastic guide. We definitely recommend the 3 hour tour. After the 2 hour tour was finished, we were the only 2 left for the third hour. Christiana asked where we had been and she took us to see places we hadn't seen previously. After doing our first Segway tour in Norway, we look for them wherever we travel.
