dallas sightseeingIf you’re traveling to Dallas, Texas, for the first time or for the tenth time, you might not be thinking about seeing the sights. Even though Dallas may not have as well-known a reputations as other large cities in the United States, it still deserves to be explored – thoroughly! Dallas is a big city that is full of charm and excitement, and the sights are definitely worth seeing. Here’s our short list of fun activities in the area.

1. The Executive Segway Tour [x]

We detailed a few reasons why you should try a segway tour awhile back, and Dallas, Texas is the perfect city for it. This particular tour is the most popular one in the city, and it will take you to several famous locales in Dallas, including the JFK Memorial, and Dealey Plaza, which earned its infamy after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Anyone over the age of 14 is welcome, so grab those teens looking for some adventure and join the fun.

3 Reasons To Try Segway Tours

Monday, January 20th, 2014

The Segway PT might just be the most underrated form of transportation in existence today. It runs on a battery, so there’s no need to worry about filling up a gas tank or keeping your carbon footprint in check. It balances itself using computers and motors, so you won’t fall off while riding around, and it keeps you moving at the perfect pace (roughly 12 miles per hour).

Still, when people visit a new city, most opt for a bus tour. Those who enjoy the open air might try a bike or walking tour, but the Segway tours are often overlooked. Well, we’d like to change that. Here are three simple reasons to try a Segway tour. (more…)

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.

Journey through History on a Tour of Philly

Friday, December 12th, 2008
Philadelphia is a great place to spend some time, and whether it’s hot or cold outside there will always be tons to see and do.  Also known as the ‘Birthplace of America’ and the ‘City of Brotherly Love,’ it is packed with historical sites and was once the home of Betsy Ross, the creator of the American flag, and author Edgar Allan Poe.   A few such distinguished sights in the area include the Liberty Bell – which was one of the most prominent symbols of the Revolutionary War and today symbolizes justice and liberty –  Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was mulled over and approved, and the First and Second Banks of the United States. 
Once you arrive in Philly, you will see that there are more attractions than you know what to do with.  An excellent way to cover a lot of them at once is the Philadelphia City Tour by Trolley.  On this survey of the city, you will get to see the Liberty Bell up close, along with Betsy Ross’s house where she was thought to have conceived the idea of the American flag, the US Mint, Chinatown, the Academy of Music, and thirteen other notable locations.  As an added perk, you can hop on and off the trolley as many times as you would like, as your ticket will be valid all day.  If you decide to stay on the trolley and go straight through, the trip takes about 90 minutes.
Should you seek a more leisurely tour, you can take the ever-popular Philadelphia Carriage Tour.  For one hour, you get to sit back and enjoy the ride as you take in the historic sights and learn about their humble beginnings.  As your horse navigates the tree-lined streets of the National Historic Park, which is also the most historic square mile in the country, you will be amazed at how far the nation has come and will get an idea of where we came from.  Society Hill is also a feature on this tour, and it is the largest collection of 18th century homes and churches in America.  This is not all; you will also pass Betsy Ross’s house and much more.  The carriage tour option is wonderful for families but can also serve as a romantic way to spend part of an evening with a loved one.

 

If you have done these two tours and are still thirsting for more, you can do a scenic dinner cruise or tour the town by Segway.  This is definitely not an exhaustive list, so take a look at all that Philly Tours has to offer for your next trip.
 

 

 
 

 

 

Out and About in Toronto

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Visit Toronto, the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario.  Toronto is considered to be Canada’s economic capital and is known for its low crime rates, diversity, and clean environment.  The best way to tour Toronto is…any way you want! There is tremendous variety when booking tours and activities here because there is always so much to do, and Niagara Falls – the area’s most popular attraction – is only 80 miles south. Tours are offered on jet boats, helicopters, airplanes, bicycles, vans, boats, buses, limousines, and pretty much any mode of transportation you can think of.  For those looking for tours that incorporate an athletic activity, try out one of the bicycle tours around Beamsville in the Canadian Wine Country.  This tour starts in Niagara and takes you to wineries around the area to sample wines and enjoy lunch.  There are plenty of other options for bike tours, including the Jordan Wine Country Tour by Bicycle, and Niagara-on-the-Lake tours.  Segway Distillery District tours are also available for those who would like to learn how to ride around town in a fun new way.

For a more relaxed time, the Niagara Falls Freedom Tour from Toronto is a fabulous choice.  The tour is semi-escorted and allows you to explore more at your leisure.  It includes admission to the Maid of the Mist boat, a stop at a local winery, and a drive through Niagara-on-the-Lake.  The tour lasts about 9 and a half hours and the afternoon is yours to enjoy the Falls at your own pace.  Other activities to consider while you are visiting the Toronto area are the Medieval Times Dinner Show and the Casa Loma Tour where you can have a self-guided glimpse inside Toronto’s most majestic castle and gardens.
