About Segway tours
Segways are a completely different way to get around. They are easily rechargeable, fit almost anywhere, and anyone can use without fear of losing their balance, as the Segway comes already fitted with an internal gyroscope. All these characteristics make the Segway the perfect transportation device for tours. Forget walking — with a Segway, you can cover much more territory in a fun and safe manner.
Segway tours can take place in cities, including large parks or reserves, or large facilities. Since the inception of the Segway Company, tours on these vehicles in cities all over the world have become a unique way to experience a new place.
