No big problems but a walking tour maybe a better option is high tourist season of June-August.

All the major Florence sites with a local flare!
dwpond, Jul 2022
Segway became bikes as Florence had a temporary ban, but it was definitely an awesome tour. Our guide Thomas was super knowledgeable and fun. We got to go places a Segway could not navigate. So many great sites in a just over 2hrs. A great way to cover a lot of ground without walking much. Highly recommend this excursion!!
Great Tour - Excellent Tour Guide (Guido)
Mark_M, Mar 2022
The tour was fun and informative. As good as the tour was, the tour guide, Guido, was beyond excellent. He was very patient and knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Some of us, namely me, took a little longer to learn the Segway, but he took his time to make sure we were comfortable in using it. After this great experience, I would take another Segway in other cities. Again, Guido was an excellent tour guide and would recommend asking for him as your guide.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Grazie Mark! Guido is an amazing guide, but fortunately we have the best guides in Florence so whoever ends up leading the tour will make it fun and memorable
Highly recommended. Great experience!!!

Grazie Carmen!
So much fun.

This tour was great! We ended up being the only couple to book on this particular morning (it was raining that day) so we basically had a private tour of Florence. It was a great way to see the city!
Great fun!
Tauchi1, Oct 2019
First time on a Segway. Easy to learn and operate. Marzia was knowledgable with a great sense of humor. Zipped around and saw the most important sites in central Florence and learned the important history behind them. HIGHLY recommend this one.
Highly Recommend!!

We did this 3 hour tour to get to know Florence in a short time and we certainly did. Vanessa, our tour guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the history - she made it come to life in her stories and we fell in love with the city.
Great time!

Just amazing! Didn’t want it to end. Our guide, Benedetta, was second to none! My teenage kids loved every minute also.
Great Excursion!

Our Segway tour of Florence was better than anticipated. I did it for the younger members of our crew and I think my sister and I (both in our 50's) enjoyed as much or better than them! Such a different way to see Florence. Super fun tour!
Wonderful family fun in Florence
ChrisMinNJ, Jul 2019
Loved it. Small group with personal attention of a knowledgeable guide. Perfect English. Very safe on roads. Easily located in center of city. Saw many highlights of Florence, and a few off of the beaten track. Definitely recommend.
Fun way to see the highlights.
Laura_A, May 2019
Guido was our guide and it was his 2nd day on the job. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I have done Segways in other cities and it was a little harder to do in Florence because of the cobblestones. Also, the crowds of people make it challenging. But I would personally do this Segway tour again.

Awesome tour and extremely knowledgeable guide, Katerina. A great overview of the city with lots of history and facts. Got to see all the major sights and Katerina gave us ideas on things to explore further during our trip. Katerina was very patient. The streets were very busy as it was Easter Monday, so dodging pedestrians was definitely a challenge. Overall I highly recommend this tour. It is also a very efficient way to see the sights.

Martin W, Nov 2017
The tour was professionally run, the guide was excellent and we saw many of the key areas of the old city. But...... Florence is not an ideal city to Segway in as the streets are so crowded either with people or cars, slowing progress and taking the enjoyment out of riding a segway.
