Riding a scooter
People who can ride a bicycle well most probably would be able to ride a scooter as well. According to our experience after a few minutes of flat rides, you can get your confidence riding a scooter safely. Each tour starts with a technical briefing explaining to you the handling of the scooter and gives you safety instructions. If required we can also give you short practicing before we start the tour.
Participants must be at least 18 years old (or accompanied by a parent), must hold a valid driver’s license and must be able to drive a scooter safely. Participation on the tours is at your own risk

We classify the tours in 3 difficulty levels to give you an idea of what level of the driving skill is required to complete the full tour program safely at the given time.
short distance tours with less traffic, lower speed (25-30 km/h) and less difficult route (eg: when a tour starts with a long flat ride you can more easily improve your confidence till you get to the hills)
short distance tours with more traffic, higher speed (30-40 km/h) and more difficult route (eg: when the tour starts with a long drive on the hills)
long-distance tours with medium/ top speed (40-50 km/h), driving on busy roads in and outside the city or driving after dark.
Public tours are shared tours. Also, other participants can book the same tour and you will tour together with them.
