Furnishing a fleet of high-tech and tipless segway transporters, All About Fun Tours guides guests along a smooth tour of the St. Petersburg waterfront. After assembling at the St. Petersburg Museum of History, riders will grip the waist-high handlebars of their electrically powered road pony and set off to tour the area at speeds of up to 12 miles per hour. The segway enjoys dynamic stabilization, is equipped with tilt sensors and gyroscopes to balance riders, and allows for 360-degree turns for teasing tail-chasing corgis. All trail riders will receive basic training and headgear before setting off, and All About Fun Tours also asks that riders wear appropriate clothing, making sure to avoid high heels and spiky moon cleats.
All About Fun Tours
The founders of St. Petersburg probably didn't imagine future visitors rolling down its streets on upright, self-balancing machines. Mounted on Segway HTs, visitors on All About Fun Tours can do just that, cruising along the waterfront on devices that intuitively respond to their movements or fear of jellyfish. Tour options abound, and guides deliver a tutorial on Segway basics before leading groups around the historic city.
