Feet are notoriously hard workers, supporting the body’s weight while restraining floors so they don’t crash into ceilings. Give diligent footworkers a break with this Groupon.
- $30 for a two-hour segway tour of Tampa (a $65 value)
After offering a brief introduction to the segway’s auto-balancing features, guides begin two-hour tours in downtown Tampa. Sightseers scoot along Bayshore Boulevard and the Tampa Riverwalk, stopping at Davis Island, Harbour Island, and the Tampa Convention Center. Tour times vary based on the sun’s schedule, with the last trip of the day commencing at sunset. See the tour’s FAQ section for answers to common inquiries, including recommended ages and rain policies.
Tampa Segway Tours
When a reporter from the Tampa Bay Times visited Tampa Segway Tours, she thought she'd be there for maybe an hour, taking notes and talking to founder Geoff Karlavage. Instead, she said: "Almost three hours later, Karlavage practically had to tear the Segways out of our hands."
Tour-goers quickly discover how much fun it can be traveling up to 12 mph on the upright, electric-powered transportation devices. The tours take visitors past such attractions as the Gasparilla Pirate Ship and the historical architecture and celebrity homes on the Davis Islands. Both day and evening tours include a 20-minute instructional class that teaches riders such things as how to make the segway go faster (you slightly lean forward and yell "Giddyup, horsey!").
