Ghosts roam the earth to complete unfinished tasks, such as making peace with a loved one or picking up the dry cleaning. Witness the errands of the undead with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a haunted history tour from Segway Tours of Portland (a $65 value).
Segway Tours of Portland gears up for the Halloween season by visiting notable haunts of the Casco Bay area and recounting sinister tales and little-known historical facts. Journeys commence with a 30-minute introduction to Segway technology and proper operation, including a brief history of the machine as well as tips on using its secret pogo function. From a starting point on Pearl Street, wheel-mounted adventurers embark on a 60-minute exploration of the waterfront and Munjoy Hill, as experienced guides describe spine-tingling tales of pirates and phantom naval officers via audio headsets. The tour pauses periodically to allow guests to take advantage of scenic photo ops or collect autographs from famous poltergeists at the East End Cemetery.
