Randy and Jill Pryor took their first segway tour in 2010 and didn't want it to end. The experience inspired them to travel to the Segway, Inc. headquarters, where they became certified Segway Level II technicians. They founded Patriot Tours & Provisions in order to share the experience with others, which is exactly what they do during guided jaunts through Yorktown. There's the historical tour, which winds through sites linked to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and the breeze tour, which explores the York River and surrounding historical neighborhood. They also offer off-road nature rides through New Quarter Park and tours of the Kingsmill Resort.
