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.

In Tampa, the activities don’t stop just because the sun goes down.  If you are still in the mood for some action, check out one of the dinner cruises on offer.  A fantastic combination of fine dining and entertainment, these cruises are a definite crowd pleaser and an excellent chance to check out the sights without braving the city traffic.  Similar trips are available at lunch time as well if that is more to your liking.

One such cruise is the Dinner Dance Cruise from St. Petersburg.  With incredible waterfront views of Tampa Bay, you are able to see so much more than you would by land because you have the opportunity to do so from many different vantage points.  As you take a walk up and down the decks you will see the city lit up as it stands out against the night sky.  The view, in combination with the food and entertainment, makes your trip that much more memorable so it is a great activity to share with friends or loved ones.
