Tour Highlights
Checkpoint Charlie - The famous border crossing between East Berlin and West Berlin for Allied forces and foreigners is now an outdoor exhibit detailing the Cold War.
Brandenburg Gate - Arguably Germany's most famous monument, the Brandenburg Gate served as a backdrop for many of Berlin's most important events: Napoleon's march into Berlin, the division of Berlin during the Cold War, famous speeches (Reagan) and concerts (Hasselhof!), and much more.
Luftwaffe Ministry - The massive former headquarters building of the Nazi Luftwaffe Ministry still stands and is now the main building of Germany's Finance Ministry.
Bebelplatz - Directly in front of the main building and library of Germany's most prestigious university, this was the site of the Nazi's infamous book-burning on May 10, 1933
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe - This recently-finished memorial is powerful to all who visit. Its 2711 blocks of various heights sit on undulating ground to give those walking through it a sense of solice and solitude.
Berlin Wall - See one of the last remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, now under historical protection, as we discussed why it was built and how it fell.
Museum Island - This is home to five of Berlin's most famous museums, notably the Pergamon Museum and the Egyptian Museum (now housed in the Neues Museum).
Potsdamer Platz - The new "downtown" of Berlin with unparalleled modern architecture.
Hitler's Bunker - Stand above Hitler's bunker as we recount the final days of the Third Reich and Hitler's bizarre demise.
Reichstag - Germany's famous parliament building stood just in front of the Wall in West Berlin, a testament that the final chapters of Berlin's 20th Century had yet to be written. Germany moved it's federal government back to Berlin in 1999.
Watchtower - See one of the last remaining watchtowers in the Berlin Wall no-man's-land isolating West Berlin within East Germany.
Topography of Terror - This former headquarters of the infamous Nazi 'Gestapo' and SS is now a free museum detailing interrogations by the Nazis that took place here.

Notes

Each of our tours begins with a 30-minute orientation session in the plaza and park next to our office. We will practice on the Segways so that everyone feels comfortable and ready to go out and conquer Berlin. The Segway is appropriate for virtually anyone aged 15 and older, provided they possess a motor vehicle license of any kind. Minors under the age of 18 must either be accompanied by an adult or have an adult complete our insurance paperwork in advance of the tour. Unfortunately, anyone under the age of 15 and pregnant women will not be permitted to participate. Again, you must be at least 15 years of age to participate. IDs will be checked for those looking underage.

For insurance policy stipulations, we are required to take a EUR 400,- damage deposit per party to cover damages to the Segway. This desposit will be taken by credit card (Visa, MC, or Amex) or cash at the time of the tour and refunded afterwards provided no damage to the Segway has been sustained.

Additionally, we have a strict policy against alcohol consumption and Segway operation. Alcohol is forbidden on all Segway tours and any client suspected of drinking before or during a Segway tour will immediately forfeit their tour and no refund will be given.

Please also wear flat, comfortable footwear. Flip-flop sandals and high heeled shoes make riding the Segways more difficult.

Lastly, participants must weigh between 100 lbs (45 kgs) and 255 lbs (115kgs) to use the machine properly.

Prices per person - please submit an enquiry to receive a personalized itinerary and costs.
