Highlights
  • Travel further than a walking tour on an electric-powered Segway
  • A small group of up to six people ensure a personalized tour
  • Live commentary and headphones so you can hear your guide on the go
What to expect
Start your tour with an orientation session, where you’ll be shown how to operate your Segway, and have some time to practice independently before heading out into the city. Once you’re feeling comfortable, set off to explore Florence aboard your Segway—you will soon discover how much fun it is to zip between the sights, not to mention that it's much easier than walking or cycling! With headphones provided, you’ll be able to hear your guide’s commentary, even when you’re on the go, ensuring you don’t miss any of the sights along the way. During the tour, make several stops to admire Florence landmarks, such as Florence Cathedral, Palazzo Vecchio, and the Uffizi Gallery; glide around Piazza della Signoria and Piazza della Repubblica; and see the grand Basilica of Santa Croce on Piazza Santa Croce. After three hours taking in the highlights of Florence, your tour ends back at the departure point.

Cristina was amazing! Thank you for a great time on our Segway tour of Florence. Our family of 5 really enjoyed our time and saw the whole city in a few hours. It really helped us understand the city layout and top sites to make the most of our limited time. As mentioned we loved our guide Cristina and she even helped map out recommended restaurants and gelato stops during our stay. Highly recommend!

We have taken many Segway tours and find it is the best way to get a thorough over view of the city, in the shortest amount of time all without getting tired!
Segway tours are great and our tour in Florence with Francesca was awesome. She is vey knowledgeable about the history, food and culture of Florence. She is funny, enjoyable to be with and patient!
Thanks Francesca!

We loved our 3 hour Segway tour of Florence. Being a first timer the instruction way very helpful and we managed to master the Segway easily. The guys at Fat Tire Tours were very friendly, spoke excellent English and made our tour very interesting and enjoyable. Such a great way to see a lot in a short space of time. I would highly recommend Fat Tire Tours and would definitely do another Segway tour in the future.

Superb tour guide who was very accommodating and friendly with excellent knowledge of the area and ability to answer a range of questions. We were shown how to use the Segway before leaving and once we got used to it, the whole experience was fantastic. This tour was the highlight of our day!

The guide had patience when teaching us how to ride the Segway, because it was our first time. Once we got used to it, we loved it! It was easy to understand the guide and she had good information to share. We did the 2 hour tour because of time restraints, but I would recommend the 3 hour if you can. We did this our first day in Florence so we could get a feel for the city, and it was a good choice and helped us decide what to do for the other days.

Ciao Chloe! Yes you really have to try the 3 hours tour, it really gives you a complete overview of the city and with segways it can be really special especially because you can pass 3 hours on them and the time flies so fast! Come back to Florence we wait for you for other memories together! Ciao, Sarah

Maya took us on an amazing tour of the City. What a brilliant way to get your bearings if you are new to an area. There were only 5 of us on the tour so not too many to slow things down. I would certainly recommend this to anyone visiting Florence.

Our guide Benny was very knowledgeable and made our tour very enjoyable. She answered all questions and even gave us maps with places she recommended we see.
The segway gave us a great overview of the historic centre of Florence and helped us with finding our way around afterwards. I would highly recommend this as we have have always had postive experience with Fat Tire tours.

This was the most enjoyable thing we did in our stay. Grazie Mille to Sofia who was a delightful knowledgeable guide patient looking after us and answering all our questions. There was only four of us on the 9.30 am trip and so it was quite intimate. Segway is so easy, it becomes instinctual after a short while.

We do a Segway tour every city we can - it’s a great way to start , get some history info and to get your bearings.

We did 3 hour tour with Raquel who was fabulous.

Is it difficult? No but it can get a little interesting in busy areas . Just jump in and do it .

Would I go back? Absolutely
