Zip through the streets of Madrid on a revolutionary Segway! Not only is it easy but, loads of fun as well. You will see the Royal Palace, the Almudena, Templo de Debod and the Mayor and de Espana Plaza's on this unique tour. Numbers are limited to 10 people on this small-group tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your guide.

Start your tour with a safety briefing and some basic training before setting off on a route through central Madrid.

Pass by Almudena Cathedral, recently completed in 1992 after more than 110 years of construction. Although the church is relatively new, this spot has been a place of worship since the city's earliest settlement.

The Palacio Real or Royal Palace, was the brainchild of Felipe V, the first of the Bourbon Kings. His plan was to build an architectural masterpiece to rival its European counterparts. What you now see is an Italianate baroque colossus boasting around 2800 rooms. It is still used for official receptions, however the current King does not reside in the Palace. You will also see the beautiful Sabatini gardens in honor of Francesco Sabatini, an Italian architect who worked a great deal on the Royal Palace.

See the amazing Templo de Debod, a 4th Century-BC Egyptian temple which was saved from the rising waters of Lake Nasser and sent block by block to Spain in 1970.

Cruise through the famous Plaza de Espana where you will see a statue of Spanish writer, Cervantes. At the writer's feet is a bronze of his most well known characters, Don Quijote and Sancho Panza.

Return to the heart of Madrid, Plaza Mayor built in typical Herrerian style. Formerly a center for Royal festivities and Bull fighting, the square was burnt to the ground in 1790 but, was subsequently resurrected. Today the square is lined with shops and alfresco cafes, which makes it the perfect place to end your tour.
