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 $32, you get a two-hour Ybor City Segway Personal Transporter tour from Segway Inc. (a $65 value).
The gliding aficionados at Segway Inc. match each visitor with a faithful two-wheeled companion before embarking on Segway Personal Transporter tours through the brick-lined streets of Ybor City. After a product orientation by Segway employees, tour groups roll through the antique cityscape dotted with iron balconies, old-time globe street lamps, and discarded floppy disks. In Ybor City’s historic Latin quarter—once regarded as the Cigar Capital of the World—riders indulge their whiffers in the pleasant aromas of hand-rolled cigars and fresh café con leche. Knowledgeable guides share pearls of local history throughout the two-hour tour, and stride-free sightseers are encouraged to bring cameras or photographic memories to remember the experience.
