All Segway tours starts with a training session in front of our office. Each person will have ample time to practice on the Segways until feeling comfortable and ready to go out and enjoy Prague on these fantastic machines.
On our Grand Segway tour we’ll venture through narrow back alleys through Prague’s medieval street before moving past Charles bridge and onto the Rudolfinum for a brief history of one of the most famous concert halls in the country and Nazi provocation in World War II.
We then cruise across the Vltava River to behold the magnificent Prague Castle but first riding by the beautiful St. Nicholas cathedral before entering the street to the Prague Castle. On this easy glide we ride by and see the Loreta palace, the Strahov monastery and library before heading into the big green part of our ride. Here we ride through the spacious park past the Petrin lookout tower down the hill towards the Vltava River passing through the Kinsky Garden. Once down at the riverbank we then cross back along the road that separated old and new town and stop for another photo op before passing the national theatre and head back to our office.
The Superior Segway tour will then continue after a short break at our office for the inner towns of old and new town areas plus Jewish areas and Lesser Town ride through.

Then we’ll continue to the famous Jewish district for a history of the famous Old New Synagogue, the Jewish cemetery, and the story of Golem, the protector of the Jewish ghetto. Down to the riverside for a nice view makes for a tremendous picture of the castle and the many bridges connecting the old town and the lesser town, Mala Strana before crossing it.
