Segway in Santiago de Compostela

I just wanted to give a bit of a plug for the Segway tour of Santiago. I've done it twice now and consider it great value for money at EUR 10 for 3/4 hour. After instruction, you travel from the Convento do San Francisco, through the Cathedral Square, to the Alameda Park and around the perimeter and back to the Convent. The guide/instructor explains the history at various points (in Spanish) and will take photos with your camera (no charge) as you tour.

If you have a spare hour or so in Santiago, for the price of a Menu del Dia you can have a really enjoyable time and it really is very easy to master.

You can get details through the tourist office or grab a leaflet from the Segway Guys as they tour around.

I've no connection to the company, just really enjoyed it and think others may as well.

Here's a link to their website with more information and contact/reservation details: http://www.segwaysantiago.es/

Cheers

Sounds great! Is that new? I've never seen it or else I would have done it!

Probably more fun than that little train thing with all the embarrassed looking dads in it as well. :oops:

Buen Camino!

p.s. Can you be done for drink-driving on these things?

I don't know how long it has been running for in Santiago. I understand (although I didn't see it myself) that you can also hire them up at the City of Culture building above Santiago. In this case it is not a tour, you are just free to roam around for a set amount of time.

Pretty sure you could get done for drink driving but they've got to catch you first!

I never found that leaflet so don't know whether there is a website or not but there is a basic Facebook page with contact details.

Buen Segway

We need to know whether you can qualify for a credencial if you travel by Segway. What is the minimum number of km's in order to qualify?

I'm sure you will qualify for a Credencial, might have a problem getting a Compostela though :wink:

Must feel weird on a Segway after all that walking...
It feels weird on a Segway at any time, in my opinion. Fun though!
