Modes of transportation have evolved over time, from the horse-pulled buggies of yesteryear to the horse-pulled rocket ships currently under development. Join this evolutionary chain with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a two-hour ScootCoupe rental for two at GW Tours in Huntington Beach (a $90 value).
Three-wheeled ScootCoupe scooters shuttle one driver and one passenger around at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Helmet-clad twosomes can feel wind through their hair, sunlight on their faces, and jealous stares from turtles as they zip across roads in the brightly colored buggy, which can trek 70 to 80 miles per gallon of fuel. Hand-operated controls allow feet to thumb-wrestle without distraction, and powerful disc braking on all wheels helps ensure riders come to safe stops. High-visibility lights on each vehicle's façade illuminate pavement during night driving, and mini motorists can effortlessly navigate around sharp corners or precariously stacked fine china thanks to rack-and-pinion steering.
GW Tours’ fleet of segways and Scoot Coupes glides along the wet sands of Huntington Beach in both predesigned routes and custom carved paths. Before embarking, each segway participant receives a protective helmet and all the instruction necessary to handle the Segway X2, an extrarugged machine with all-terrain tires tough enough to steer away from obstacles and awkward conversations. The popular Beachcomber expedition takes segway pilots past major Surf City sites and across the hard, dark sand of the beach at low tide. While rolling, guides regale their flock with tales from Huntington Beach's storied past and snap photos of the group.
Segway riders then return to GW Tours’ stables, where they receive a photo CD with images of them shredding along like Darth Vader when he’s late to a meeting. Because almost anyone who can stand can operate a segway, tours are a wonderful gift for the young, old, and anyone else with flat-soled shoes and a sense of adventure. GW Tours also offers custom rides and caters to corporate groups.
