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 this Groupon.
$35 for a Two-Hour Segway Tour ($75 Value)
After a 20-minute segway training, a tour guide leads two to four riders throughout Portland as they relay knowledge of the city and its history.
Portland by Segway
From Chinatown to Powell’s Books, Portland by Segway’s knowledgeable instructors lead groups of two to four riders in search of the eclectic charm and green architecture of Portland. A quiet area is the first stop on the journey, as participants 12 years old and up partake in a 20-minute practice session, which helps each person learn the basics of balancing, steering, and feeding carrots to the advanced machine. The group then hits the road, cruising along the Willamette River before taking in more sights, including Portland State University and Burnside in Old Town. Historical facts and stories can also be incorporated into the tour if riders desire. Segway tours run rain or shine, and group tours are available at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and sunset at 6:15 p.m.
