A great morning in Catania

We (4 friends) have booked a segway tour in Catania. We were a bit queasy at the beginning of the tour. But Leon, the organizer was our companion, helped us in every situation, even stopped the traffic for us and also enabled us to visit the Cathedrale. It was fantastic. Our guide Simon knows many interesting things about the city and made the morning culturally interesting. Any time ! Thanks for the exciting hours!

The whole family really enjoyed it. We wouldn’t have seen half the sights by foot. Great way to get around, see everything and have fun while doing so. Our guides were really helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

Nice and original tour of the city We do more with less fatigue Quality equipment and within everyone's reach I recommend
