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 $26, you get a one-hour tour of historic Mount Dora from Segway of Central Florida (a $51.12 value).
After a quick training, the knowledgeable guides at Segway of Central Florida lead their wheeled followers on one-hour tours of quaint Mount Dora. Embarking from downtown, easy riders roll along the city marina out to the Mount Dora lighthouse and on to picturesque Palm Island Park. Pass along nature paths and raised walkways while ogling the local wildlife and waterfowl, who might return your stares of curiosity or get on their own Segways and ride to safety. After leaving the park, tour takers serenely glide through historic neighborhoods to gaze at little-known nooks, crannies, and niblets. Tours take place Wednesday–Sunday at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m. Riders must be at least 14 years old and must make a reservation in order to mount one of Segway of Central Florida’s gyroscopic fillies.
- We found the trip very interesting and Dave was able to tell us the history of Mount Dora and show us some beautiful sites (such as Lake Dora, the light house, etc.), and many beautiful old stately homes. – GreenBayPackerMan, TripAdvisor
- It was my first time on a Segway (at age 59) and I was quite thrilled with the experience. I would want to drive a Segway around my own neighborhood let alone in a pretty town like Mt. Dora! Riding a Segway is like skiing -- such a blast! – JSJ_45066, TripAdvisor
