My son (16j and I had a wonderful time with Philipo this afternoon on the segways around the old part of Genoa. Phillipo was friendly and courteous, showed us how to easily use and control the segways and led us on an enjoyable informative tour for 2.5 hours this afternoon. I expect this will be the highlight on my son’s trip to Italy. Thank you, Philipo! I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed!

My boyfriend, mother and I had a spectacular time with Philipo in Genova! It was the perfect way to see the city quickly before setting out on foot to spend more time in the city. They offer a 1 hr and 2.5 hr option.

If you have never Segway-ed, never fear. It's easy. You won't fall off and it's the most fun ever. I'll explain later. We booked Genova Segway on our MSC cruise and were not disappointed. The old town Genova is hilly, cobblestoned and narrow. If you enjoy hiking you will love walking the streets. If not, it's time for a Segway.
Our guide, Matt, was knowledgeable, knew his history and was charming to boot. We made several stops along the way so that we could truly enjoy the town and history. The smells of bread baking, spicy food as we passed were wonderful.

To start, Matt fitted the 5 of us with helmets, and explained how to ride. We had an area to practice until we were comfortable. He also held the Segway every time we got off or on, which is a big help. The cobblestones at first were a bit jittery, but we soon conquered those. To ride, lean forward to go, lean back to stop, lean to either side to turn. It's that easy. And YOU are in control. One of our companions, Annie, was full of trepidation at first. I told her, "Girl, you're going to be zipping all over the place by the end." And she was! Do it. I guarantee you will love it. It's also happens to be the best way to see Genova in a short time period.

This is really a great way of discovering the hilly city of Genoa. It is fun, secure but cultural.
Our guide was really kind and we learnt about the past of the city and citizen.

You were an excellent tour guide, Stefano! We packed in more stops than I had imagined possible. What a great way to scout out a plan for a walking tour later on by myself. I would recommend having a video cam! And we will try your pizza recommendation!
