Trailing along behind friendly, professional guides, riders stand tall at the reins of their segways as they explore the unique sights and neighborhoods of San Diego and its surroundings. On the Coronado Island tour, riders first board a ferry for a quick jaunt across the bay. After disembarking, they tool around the island's well-groomed surroundings, spotting the renowned Coronado Yacht Club and learning about the Hotel Del Coronado's status as a National Historic Landmark before returning to the boat.
During Downtown Gaslamp Waterfront tours, riders explore the diverse neighborhoods and historic sights that rub elbows in the city's vibrant central hub. A ride along the harbor reveals San Diego's history as an international port, and a visit to the Gaslamp Quarter recaptures the spirit of the city's well-mannered early days.
No matter the tour, guides give quick lessons to make sure every rider is comfortable. San Diego Segway Tours recommends wearing comfortable clothes and shoes and bringing along sunglasses, sunscreen, and a camera.
Wheel Fun Rentals
When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
