Yesterday we mentioned our collaboration with Pola from Jetting Around. It was a wonderful union, indeed.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to Nola, of New Take Travel (name similarities are purely coincidental – yet cool, nonetheless). Like the rest of us, Nola’s got quite the passion for travel, and we were so grateful for the opportunity to arrange her Everglades Adventure in Fort Lauderdale. (more…)

So many human transporters…I mean Segways!

Sightseeing Group on Segways

Sightseeing Group on Segways

It is true.  Segways have become a staple activity in most major tourist destinations around the globe.  We are adding segway tours to our sites like they are going out of style, but let’s hope they don’t!  Truthfully, it is not likely since production of these machines has substantially increased in recent years.

Most recently, we added Segway options in Toronto, San Francisco, Miami, and Lisbon, Portugal.  We are currently exploring numerous international destinations, as well as a handful of ‘missing’ domestic locations.  A few other popular cities with Segways for hire include: Chicago, Washington DC, Atlanta, San Diego, Paris, Rome, and Sydney.  For a complete list of over 55 (and growing) segway tours that we offer, please visit Reserve123.

What is a Segway?

A Segway is a self-balancing electric vehicle that features two wheels.  It was invented by a man named Dean Kamen, and is produced in the United States.  The name “Segway” is a homophone of the word “segue”, which means a smooth transition.  When you lean forward, the device moves forward.  When you lean back, it brakes and ultimately goes backwards.  Turning is simple when you use the “leaning steering wheel”, and the top speed is around 12.5 MPH.  As you can imagine by the name, they are smooooth.  Like buttah!

Riding a Segway is quite a unique experience.  When you factor in the fact that they are green friendly (they are 100% electric), you don’t have to feel at all guilty as you glide around your destination.  Riding the Segway is fun in and of itself.  Throw in some new and exciting scenery, and you have a winning combination for sure.

The new year brings a new set of opportunities to enjoy life on a higher level.  This year, why don’t you make your New Year’s resolution to travel as much as you can? Now that we are well into the winter season, it’s almost time to start thinking about the spring, and what better way to do that than to look at booking your first trip of the season?

Florida is beautiful all year round, but especially in the warmer months.  Spring is a favorite season of many because it’s not too hot and not too cold.  Florida has a lot to offer in the way of sightseeing, so this is the best way to check out activities that are exciting to you.  As you know, there are plenty of cities in Florida, so there is sure to be at least one that strikes your fancy.  Here are some suggestions to consider:

Miami is a sizzling hot city with a unique vibe, one that will have you pumped up to party the night away.  Many stars have called Miami home, including Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, and Rosie O’Donnell.  One visit and you’ll definitely see why!

Panama City is another great place to see, so it is no wonder that it has become the ultimate spring break destination.  There are plenty of things to see and do, including a Dinner & Dancing Yacht Cruise designed to showcase the beautiful St. Andrew Bay.  An all-you-can-eat feast is included, and live music so you can dance to your heart’s content.

Visit Orlando for some family-friendly fun and a visit to Fun Spot Action Park, where you can ride a go kart and take a leisurely ferris wheel ride; whatever suits your mood.  Kids will be thrilled to learn that there is also an arcade!

No matter what you do and where you go this spring, Florida is sure to deliver exactly what you’re looking for.  Check out the above links or visit http://www.tours-florida.us/ for more specific offerings.

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Fall is the perfect time to get out and see the vibrant colors of nature, whether you are jet-setting across the country or hanging out in your own backyard.  With the weather getting cooler outside, it becomes easier to get active and enjoy an outdoor adventure or two without breaking too much of a sweat.

Here are a few activities to consider when planning your fall outings:

-Check out the historical town of Salem, Massachusetts for a look inside the history of the Salem Witch Trials

-Watch the change of season in the Berkshires, where you will see vibrant bursts of color in the trees and witness the harvest of beautiful autumn fruits and vegetables

-Venture out on horseback in the San Francisco area and explore the valleys, preserves, and beaches that define the area

-Enjoy an exciting trip to Boston and take in a baseball game to watch the Red Sox play during the post season

-Set out on a fishing trip in Orlando, Florida and catch a “reel” winner!

-Visit a ranch in Texas and live like a cowboy

Reserve123 has a wide array of activities that will keep you entertained throughout the fall season, and their scope is not limited to the United States.

Worldwide tours are available, from Europe to Asia, Canada to Africa and everything in between.  You can find out more about tours and activities in your area of interest by visiting www.Reserve123.com.

Kayaking Along Tampa Bay

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

BookingBuddy

Those who are looking to set up their own private trip on the water can rent a single, tandem, or glass bottom kayak to explore the bay and go fishing or have a romantic day with a loved one during their time in St. Petersburg.Sport models are great for fishing, or you can use the add-on seat for 2 children.Every kayak has room for food and supplies so you can make things romantic by packing a picnic and setting out on the open water.

Renting a kayak is a great way to explore the area without being confined to a schedule.You can leave early in the morning and paddle and float along Tampa Bay, stopping at a mangrove bird island and a bayou estuary along the way.This makes for a lovely day out in the company of nature, and it is so peaceful to hear only the sounds of the birds and the gentle flowing of the water.  As you take a break, you are able to stop and marvel over how gorgeous the area is.  Just don’t forget your sunblock and a hat to protect you from Florida’s strong rays!

If you are not from the south, it might be best to go out on a kayak in the fall, as the heat is not as overpowering so you can enjoy your ride even more.It does get cool on the water, though, so bring an extra layer of clothing just in case.As always, pack a camera and some snacks and have a wonderful and relaxing day!

For more on renting a kayak, as well as other fun activities in the St. Petersburg area, visit www.StPetersburgTours.org.

One of a Kind Cruise in Fort Lauderdale

Monday, July 13th, 2009

LastMinuteTravel.com - Travel deals to top destinations

If you are drawn to the water, you will love the Jungle Queen Sightseeing Cruise in Fort Lauderdale.  This 3-hour cruise takes you up the New River to see the sights in the comfort of a fully-equipped riverboat that is designed specifically for sightseeing.  You will pass some gorgeous waterfront homes along the way that will make you want to relocate to the area just to be able to own something so beautiful!

The tour will stop off at the Jungle Queen Indian Village, where monkeys and exotic birds call home.  The Village is full of life, with flourishing tropical foliage and brightly colorful wildlife.  The captain on board keeps you informed throughout the trip as he points out different species and landmarks.  This is a great option for those who are new to the area and may not have seen some of these animals and landscapes before. 

Jungle Queen Cruises in Fort Lauderdale

Two of the sights you will see as you cruise are downtown Fort Lauderdale and part of the Everglades, a subtropical wetland that begins up in Orlando.  The Everglades are shaped by fire and water and, thus, are always changing based on alternating flood and drought.  You will want to keep your eyes open as the scenes will often change suddenly.  Keep your camera snapping and you will definitely have some fantastic pictures to remember your trip by.

Reserve your seat online at www.fortlauderdaletours.net to save $5 per adult ticket.

Orlando Dining and Entertainment

By the time you finish your day of sightseeing in Orlando, you should be ready to sit back and relax as you enjoy a deliciously satisfying meal.  In Orlando, there are many dining options, several of which combine quality food and top-notch entertainment into one enjoyable evening.

The Pirate’s Dinner Adventure in Orlando, which is set on a large, fully-rigged pirate ship, is made complete with an excellent Broadway-quality show of epic proportions.  The classic story of good and evil, which is presented with the perfect mix of comedy, action, romance, and adventure, will leave dinner guests in stitches.  The show’s cast includes Princess Anita and Sebastian the Black – the leader of the unruly pirate gang.  At the end of the evening, you can join together with the cast for the Buccaneer Bash and a chance to party the night away.

In stark contrast to the pirates’ treachery, your trip to Orlando can be rounded out with an appearance at Disney World’s Chef Mickey Character Dinner.  A chance to dine with Disney characters including Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy, and Chip & Dale, this dining extravaganza is perfect for kids and those who feel young at heart.  Your evening begins when you are picked up from your hotel in a classy 5-star stretch limousine for a ride over to Downtown Disney and a chance to walk around Disney’s Marketplace.  Then you will be taken over to Disney’s Chef Mickey restaurant for a tasty buffet dinner and dessert bar with your favorite Disney friends.

There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy an evening of dining and entertainment during your time in Orlando if you know where to look.  Visit www.Orlando-Tours.com for more exciting options to choose from.

Bring Your ‘Booty’ on Board the Pirate’s Ransom in Clearwater

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

For a cruise with a little attitude, climb aboard the Pirate Cruise from Clearwater for 2 hours of family fun and adventure set to the music of a steel band.  On board the 70-foot pirate ship, there are several fully costumed pirates and other characters which add to the overall experience.

Passengers will embark out into the Gulf of Mexico along Clearwater Beach as they enter the fantasy world where pirates litter the seaways and dolphins come along to play.  Children can get their faces painted and adults can take advantage of the full service bar to purchase an alcoholic beverage. 

This is a magical adventure that the adults will enjoy just as much as the children.  The ship is custom designed to look like a pirate ship from the past, and as you travel the waters of Clearwater, you will feel like you are truly a part of the story.  Everyone must do this cruise once, and you may decide to even do it again just to share the experience with others.  Enjoy some time aboard the Pirate’s Ransom and you will feel like a kid again.  Just don’t forget to bring a camera because the dolphin sightings are spectacular. 

Clearwater Tours has even more exciting tours and activities to choose from on their site, www.ClearwaterTours.com.

Fort Lauderdale, the ‘Venice of America’

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Fort Lauderdale, located in Broward County, Florida, is often referred to as the ‘Venice of America’ because of its intricate and expensive canal system.  It is a popular destination for tourists and is a major yachting area with 42,000 yachts and 100 boatyards and marinas.  Conveniently located a few miles from Miami, there are a number of tours and activities that take you to this nearby city.

For a day of fun with the kids, book the Swamp Safari Day Package from Fort Lauderdale.  This package includes a one hour eco tour on a Swamp Buggy, which is specially designed to provide elevated views of the frontier while passengers ride through the cypress heads and wetlands.  A 20-minute Airboat Tour and an educational Alligator and Snake Show or Swamp Critter Show are also included.  This is a great way to introduce your kids to Florida wildlife, and you will likely see deer, hawks, wild hogs, bison, water buffalo, and other rare species.  You will also learn a bit about Seminole legends and folklore as the safari takes you onto their Reservation where they have dutifully cared for the land and worked to preserve its natural balance.

Additional tours are offered by airboat, airplane, boat, ferry, and more.  You can also travel to Miami to visit the homes of celebrities or take in the Mai-Kai Polynesian Dinner Show in Fort Lauderdale for a unique interpretation of traditional dinner theater.  No matter what you decide to do, you will never be bored.  The weather in the area is beautiful and allows you to take advantage of a wide array of outdoor activities like charter fishing in Miami, an Everglades Day Safari from Ft. Lauderdale, or a Jungle Queen Cruise.  When you are finished seeing all there is to see in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, take an Orlando Day Tour from Miami for a change of pace and some theme park fun!
