Full Tour Description

Our tour begins with a 20 – 30 minute orientation session on our practice track. Here you’ll have time to master your Segway. Once your feeling comfortable we will go out and conquer the Buda Hills.
Buda Hills Off-road Segway Tour (1 hour)
This is a great tour in which you’ll get familiar with off-road Segway riding on our original x2 Segways. We follow Janoshegyi Street (no cars) for a little extra exercise and carving fun. Then, after practicing emergency braking maneuvers, we head off-road. You will get a glance of the famous Libego (chair lift) top station and Elizabeth’s Tower (a place worth visiting right after the Segway tour) and then explore around in the beautiful forest on our way back. We take a peek at the Children’s Railway, the popular Anna’s Field. The tour concludes at the top of Normafa Slope where you’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama of the city.
Buda Hills Superior Off-road Segway Tour (2 hours option)
Operates: 1 April – 31 October only

This is a tour that gets you ready for advanced level off-road Segway riding.
You can pick the Superior Tour as an option through booking the Normal Tour.
