On the return trip we ride through the Old city centre.

Before we set off I'll teach you how to use the machine safely.

A Recent Review of this tour

My companion and I have taken many Segway tours (50, perhaps!) in many parts of the world but this one may have been the very best. Stefan is a fantastic guide, knowledgable and fun, and we so enjoyed seeing many parts of the city, traveling over many different kinds of terrains under his guidance. I highly recommend Stefan and his Segway tour to anyone visiting Reykjavik.
