The diaries of Lewis and Clark are filled with cantankerous laments about having to tour the wilderness by foot and the startling lack of trailside fast-food options. Equip yourself with a discoverer's eyes and a Robocop's wheels with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a two-hour tour with Palm Beach Segway Tours (a $75 value).
Palm Beach Segway Tours leads the unwheeled on a two-hour guided tour of downtown West Palm Beach and Palm Beach, with each terrain-taming tour taker riding atop a segway. Your roving gang (minimum two people per tour, maximum six) will roll along the flat route at a hair-tangling 12.5 miles per hour, cruising past the glistening Intracoastal Waterway as your eyeballs snack on statues, yachts, multimillion dollar mansions, and the occasional sea demon surfacing for air. Before embarking into the palm-treed wilderness offered on this tour, the expert staff will provide segway training. Each roving gang will also be outfitted with free water bottles, ponchos (if necessary), and fortified noggin armor.
- Palm Beach Segway Tours, started by two West Palm Beach residents and entrepreneurs, aims to offer visitors and locals alike a different way of experiencing downtown West Palm Beach and parts of Palm Beach. – Allison Ross, Palm Beach Post
- We took the 10 AM tour on a weekday. It was just my wife and myself. She was a little nervous about riding the Segway but after about 10-15 minutes of patient, professional instruction she was riding the thing like she was on it all her life. – jimf41, TripAdvisor
Palm Beach Segway Tours
Palm Beach Segway Tours' experienced and witty guides lead motorized conga lines through Palm Beach and the historic downtown of West Palm Beach. Wind cascades over helmeted noggins as mansions, yachts, and museums scroll by, set against a tropical backdrop of beaches and sea creatures. Intrepid tourists may also rent 49 c.c. retro gas scooters, the same vessels that Italian explorers piloted when they discovered America in 1958.
