Segway of Richmond - Shockoe Slip: $22 for a 60-Minute Church Hill Micro Tour at Segway of Richmond ($45 value)

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 $22, you get the 60-minute Church Hill micro tour at Segway of Richmond (a $45 value).

After lassoing electric steeds, Segway of Richmond's courteous guides will prep novices with a 15-minute Segway lesson before cruising down Church Hill and its the original 32 blocks of Richmond, as laid out by Major William Mayo in 1737. Before rolling toward Main Street Station and the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors monument, the tour swings by St. John's Church, where Patrick Henry delivered his famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech to the Virginia Convention, far more important than his "Give me solitude or give me Robocop on DVD" speech to the Canadian Convention. Along the way, the history-savvy tour guides will drop intriguing facts about local landmarks and answer any questions. Call ahead for micro tour times and to make your reservation.

Segway of Richmond

The streets and buildings of Richmond breathe with history. Patrick Henry’s famous words, “Give me liberty or give me death,” echo in St. John’s Church, where the statesman gave his infamous speech; the ghost of Poe wanders the streets of the Church Hill district, where he lived and wrote; and the bones of presidents James Monroe and John Tyler lie peacefully under the lush grass of the Hollywood Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark. These are just a few of the locations that segway riders glide through during educational tours organized by Segway of Richmond, which has been an authorized dealer and tour operator in Richmond, VA since 2008 and has served 43,000 happy customers during that time.

The company’s most popular jaunt, the two-hour Landmark Tour, takes groups to nearly 20 historic buildings, churches, and museums, whereas other ventures focus on specific aspects of the city’s past, such as the Black History Tour or the Edgar Allan Poe Tour. In addition to learning about the men and women who shaped the culture of Richmond and practicing their preferred mode of transportation, tour-goers can explore the architecture of Victorian and Edwardian homes during a Fan District Tour or think about murals, mosaics, and sculptures during a Public Art Tour.
