Segway tours represent another step toward the inevitable fusion of man, machine, and commentary track. Give in to technological destiny with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a two-hour Balboa Park or San Diego City & Bay Segway tour from Another Side of San Diego Tours (a $149 value).
Zipping through the city, Another Side of San Diego Tours shepherds sightseers through historic parks and past beautiful landmarks in the knee-easy comfort of a Segway. Each two-hour excursion begins with an instructional video followed by hands-on training, allowing first time segwayers to learn smooth turns, quick stops, and emergency back flips. Led by informative guides, the Balboa Park tours travel through lush open lawns, glide under Spanish Revival arches, and roll over the brightly colored tiles of the city’s cultural center. The San Diego City & Bay tour sends guests meandering through the historic Gaslamp District before stopping to admire the helicopter-topped USS Midway.
