Fantastic

Really a wonderful tour of Boston! I worked in Boston but never saw the city the way we did on a Segway! I am hooked on this mode of touring a city and have been looking at other cities I want to appreciate via the Segway. Truly a wonderful invention which has found a great niche in the city touring business.

What You'll Get


Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt-burns, Segways and electric bikes have edged out the jetpack as the official rides of the 23rd century. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire from Seg Gliders USA, lest the future overtake you at 20 miles per hour. A reservation is required, and groups of more than six people will be split. Arrive 20 minutes early and wear comfortable shoes. Choose one of the following two-hour tour options:

  • For $42, you get a Segway tour (an $85 value)
  • For $20, you get an EZ Pedaler electric-bike tour (a $45 value).

On your Segway tour, you'll shove off near Christopher Columbus Park and roll along next to the historic sites of the freedom trail, such as the Statehouse, Old Ironsides, and the Bunker Hill Monument. During the second hour, riders glide through the Boston Harbor Arches and speed over the Northern Avenue Bridge into the Seaport District. After taking in the Federal Court House, ICA, Children's Museum, and more, you'll loop back through the sculptures and interactive art of the Rose Kennedy Greenway to your starting point. On the electric-bike tour, riders mount an EZ Pedaler T300, which hits non-pedaled speeds of up to 20 miles per hour, and start near Christopher Columbus Park before winding through the North End, Fenway, and the Theater District before ramping over 16 exploding school buses. Both tours are led by experienced guides and include a wirelessly narrated explanation of the surrounding history and culture, so you won't have to worry about missing a word while trying to pop a Seg-wheely.

Seg Gliders USA not only gives you a new way to subtly veer away from an awkward conversation topic, it also gives out-of-towners a chance to see the city without scuffing the finish on their brand-new wooden feet. Even locals will gain a fresh perspective on their home turf from a Segway's ped-propelled perch or an EZ Pedaler’s leisurely saddle. Since driving Segways and bikes powered by electric legs requires nothing but the ability to balance and the willingness to become an object of extreme envy, both tours accommodate the very old (but young at heart) and the very young (but old at heart).

Segway riders younger than 18 must have parental consent; all riders must weigh at least 100 pounds. Each group of riders must turn in a photo ID and credit card as security; the credit card will not be charged if riders commit no damage to the equipment. A 48-hour notice of cancellation is required or the Groupon is forfeited.

About Boston By Segway


Freewheeling around historic hallmarks and architecture, Boston By Segway, formerly Boston Gliders, has led more than 100,000 sightseers through Bean Town atop intuitive, easy-to-maneuver segways. Tours, which kick off every half-hour, range from one to two hours; the shorter version trundles down Boston's Harborwalk, and the longer sojourn ventures past historic hotspots including Faneuil Hall and Bunker Hill. To get acquainted with the segway, all upright rollers speed through a half-hour how-not-to-crash course, getting acquainted with the natural, fluid steering and learning how to propel the vehicle forward using a carrot tied to a stick. Armed with digital cameras, the urban sherpas snap shots throughout the tour for purchase afterward, and customers may take their own pictures as long as they briefly hop off the segway.
