ScooTours offers the first e-scooter and e-bike tours in the UK. All of our Cambridge e-scooter tours are run in partnership with Voi, a leading e-scooter rental company throughout the UK and Europe. Your guide and Voi E-Scooter will be waiting for you at the start location. We will also provide every customer with a helmet.

Please note that the e-scooter cost is not included in the price you pay today. You will need to rent your e-scooter at the start of the tour via the Voi App. We advise all our customers to purchase a 24-Hour Pass which is priced at just £10.00. This will allow you to use the e-scooter for the duration of the tour and means the total cost of this experience is £35.00. It also means you will be able to access e-scooters throughout the city for the remainder of the day!

For more details on our e-scooters and how to download the Voi App, see “Additional Information” below …

Cambridge City Tour Itinerary:

This tour is designed to be a classic Cambridge city tour with an e-scooter twist. It will visit all the major landmarks in the town centre, and several of the most renowned colleges within Cambridge University. It is equal parts fun history and scooting! Perfect for a beginner or someone who wants to see Cambridge in a new way.

The e-scooter tour will begin on the Regent Street corner of Parker’s Piece park, next to the University Arms Hotel (view on map). Like all of our tours, we will start with a safety tutorial to bring everyone up to speed on the basics of e-scooter use. Overall, the majority of this tour will be on cycle-friendly roads, roads with attached cycle lanes, or independent cycle paths.  

Once everyone is ready to go, we will move into central Cambridge. We will discuss the historic rivalry between Cambridge and Oxford whilst weaving our way through the many colleges. This tour will illuminate all of the history, traditions, and goings-on amongst university students. Partway through the tour, we will travel across the River Cam and continue on a picturesque scoot along the River, offering some of the most spectacular views of the university. We will, of course, stop and observe the famous Mathematical Bridge.

Our use of e-scooters allows us to see more sites than traditional walking tours, so this is a complete Cambridge experience! We will finish the tour down King’s Parade, the very heart of Cambridge. From here you can continue using your Voi E-Scooter or grab some lunch at Market Square.

E-Scooter Rental Cost Explained:

Please note that the e-scooter cost is not included in the price you pay today.

You will need to rent your E-Scooter on the day of the tour via the Voi App. This can be done when you arrive at the start location. More details are provided below.

E-Scooters are rented on a price-per-minute system. However, we advise all our customers to purchase a 24-Hour Pass. This pass costs just £10.00 and is the most cost-effective way of renting an e-scooter for the duration of the tour. The total cost of your e-scooter rental will be £10.00. This means the total cost of the experience is £35.00.

Your guide will be on hand to help you un-lock and purchase this pass before the tour.

Downloading the Voi App:

Ahead of the tour, you will need to download and set up an account on the Voi App. Please ensure your account has up-to-date payment information. We advise all our customers to input the relevant debit or credit card information before arriving for the tour. Please note, Apple Pay cannot be used to purchase a 24-Hour Pass.

You will need to use the app to unlock your e-scooter at the start of the tour, then lock the e-scooter at the end of the tour. Therefore, please ensure your phone has a reasonable battery charge.

All necessary information, including a link to the App Store and Play Store, will be included in your booking confirmation email!

Age Restrictions / Requirements:

For all of our electric scooter tours, the minimum age requirement is 18 years old.

In addition, you must be in possession of one of the following:

  • A valid provisional or full UK driving licence.
  • A valid full licence from an EU or European Economic Area (EEA) country.
  • A valid full licence from another country that entitles you to drive a small vehicle in the U.K.

If you are unsure whether your driving license is applicable, then check this government link: “Gov.uk – E-Scooter Trials: Guidance for Users.”

When you first access a Voi e-scooter you will be asked to verify your identity, therefore you must bring your driving license along on the day of your tour. You will need to scan your license via the Voi app, therefore you must bring the plastic photo-ID version of your license, not the paper counterpart.

If you do not bring your license, we cannot guarantee you will be able to access an e-scooter.

Don’t have a license? Or has your license recently expired? We also offer a collection of excellent E-Bike Tours. All of our e-bike tours do not require a driving license so provide the perfect alternative!
