Feet are notoriously hard workers, supporting the body’s weight while restraining floors so they don’t crash into ceilings. Give diligent footworkers a break with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a narrated Wharf and Waterfront segway tour from The Electric Tour Company (a $70 value). This Groupon can be used for either the day or night tour, space-permitting. Space is limited, and group rides can only accommodate six Groupon users at a time, so the bassoonist in your chamber septet will have to stay home.
The Electric Tour Company's wheel-bound guides lead groups of up to 10 on whirlwind trips past the most seeable sights at Fisherman’s Wharf. A 45-minute training session familiarizes riders with the segway i2s, delivering instruction on turning, stopping, and landing a 1080. Tours then chart a course toward scenic destinations, sampling the salt-sprayed pathways of Municipal Pier, the dungeness crab stands at Fisherman's Wharf, and the National Maritime Museum. As eyes divide time between breathtaking views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, ears sidle up next to the sonic waves produced by individual radio receivers that broadcast narration and This Is Your Life episodes starring each tour rider. Call a week in advance to reserve your spot; Electric Tour Company keeps the tours capped comfortably at 10 people. Glow sticks and light-up grillz are optional and recommended for the night tour, but not included.

The crew members at Electric Tour Company believe that San Francisco is the most fun town in the world, and that one of the best ways to explore its diverse streets are on unique vehicles such as the Segway. This led them to develop tours—for locals and tourists alike—which have attracted attention and praise from outlets such as Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the Los Angeles Times. Atop the sturdy deck of an i2 Segway, groups wheel past famed San Francisco sights and explore historic neighborhoods.
