Like a gondola ride, a pedicab ride combines slow-paced sightseeing with the sweet sounds of little birds eating pennies and shaking themselves. Lend your ears, eyes, and sittin’ muscles to today's Groupon: for $37, you get a pedicab tour along the Arkansas River (a $75 value) from Golzern Pedicabs.
Golzern Pedicabs' fleet of wheeled chariots takes visitors and hometown explorers on eco-friendly journeys through Tulsa’s expansive avenues. Tour-goers rendezvous with drivers at the Blue Rose Café before setting off along a wafting stretch of the Arkansas River, known for its calming eddies and wailing seahorses. Beneath the awning of the pedicab, up to two adults and two kids (under 50 lbs.) peer out toward riverside sights and landmarks before the one-hour tour leisurely meanders back toward a finish at the Blue Rose Café. Post-ride, guests nosh from a platter of cheese fries and quaff two 22-ounce sodas or teas nestled in souvenir Blue Rose cups while recounting panoramic memories or debating the feasibility of commuting to work via pontoon.
