Segway Tours, have you heard of them?
Several years ago I had no idea what a Segway was. My husband surprised me for my birthday and we did the Tempe tour. It was unlike anything I had ever done.
Helmets first. Then the lessons. Yes, you get lessons. I was thinking when we got there, how the heck do you stop? They take about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the tour to teach you. First the safety instructions then the hands-on trying what you just learned. They teach you in their parking lot, so they let you test it all out, and once everyone is comfortable you are ready for the tour.
This was just a blast. They take you around Tempe Town Lake. If the weather is good, it’s just so much fun. We had a great tour guide, he gave us all the history of Tempe. Even for the locals, there is much to learn.
My husband and I enjoyed it so much, we asked our friends to go with us. We did the Scottsdale tour and it was equally as fun. The tour guide again gives you tons of history of the are. It is pretty fun to wheel down Old Town Scottsdale on a Segway! We even stopped at the Scottsdale Stadium, and running through their parking lot was crazy.
After the tour, it’s a great opportunity to find a casual place to grab a bite. That’s what we did and as the locals know, there are dozens of great choices in both Tempe and Scottsdale.
I hope you have as much fun as we did.
Here are the discounts I promised:
