We (family of 4 with mom, dad, and 2 teens) did this as a shore excursion during a cruise ship stop in Messina. This tour was awesome, and way better than anything the cruise ship had to offer. We met the guides literally 5 minutes from the ship. We had a brief introduction from our patient tour guides on riding a Segway. My wife was a little intimidates, but they patiently walked her through it. Then we were off, with guides in front and behind us. We felt very safe the whole way. During the ride, we listened to an overview of what we were seeing from the guide behind us. it was very informative. We stopped at a few places for photos, including an overlook of Messina. At the end, we also stopped for Granitas (google it) at a place for locals and had a very authentic experience. We had a ton of fun riding the Segways, felt safe the whole way, and saw more of Messina than any walking tour or bus tour possibly could. I highly recommend.
