Seeing the world by segway beats seeing the world by bus, as bus tours are often ruined by engine exhaust, construction detours, and guides who deliver facts by honking them in Morse code. Enjoy the calm of a combustion-free trek with this Groupon.

Trailing along behind friendly, professional guides, riders stand tall at the reigns of their segways as they explore the unique sights and neighborhoods of Philadelphia. Guides give quick lessons to make sure every rider is comfortable, and then take tour-goers through the downtown arts district to see fountains and sculptures and visit the iconic Rocky steps in Fairmount Park. Wheel Fun Rentals 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.
