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 deal. For $39, you get your choice of a two-hour Segway tour with We Love Tourists. Roll along with either the Downtown San Diego Tour, which meets across the street from Petco Park, or the La Jolla Tour, which meets across the street from Scripps Park. This Groupon is not valid for the Coronado Tour.
Seamlessly merge with the machine on a user-friendly Segway designed to balance your body while you enjoy the ride. Roll through downtown San Diego in a harbor-side quartet of four riders or less, ensuring each wheeled human can form a lifelong bond with the guide. Each fearless leader zips the group through the harbor, Balboa Park, and the Gaslamp District, peppering in humor and history in a blend unseen since the Magna Carta on ice. During the La Jolla Tour, hang ten on your Segway just like a truly ninjatic turtle as you stroll the coastline's happening surf spots and nearby elegant properties. As you robo-roll across the beach walk, kindly wave to passing land walkers to make sure you are welcomed back to civilian life come tour's end.
Even though We Love Tourists is cryptic about its admirations for tourists, the company proudly declares its love for people of all permanent mailing addresses. The friendly guides invite curious San Diegans to better know their hometown or prepare for visiting relatives, while furthering their quest for a college degree in being president of the city. Tours are offered daily at 7:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 1:30 p.m. Call ahead to reserve your spot.
- Not only was riding a Segway even more fun than I had anticipated, I learned a lot about the history of La Jolla and got to see beautiful beaches and houses. –mickie435
- …they seemed to know everything about the places that we were touring and were actually pretty funny. If we tour through the city again I would love to do it the same way. – swingkid02
We Love Tourists
We Love Tourists saddles sightseers on segways to glide along San Diego's landmarks and La Jolla's coastal views. Prior to each adventure, the guides introduce explorers to the basic techniques needed to balance, steer, and outwit their futuristic rides. During the roll-about, the team of locals shares inside knowledge and embarrassing baby pictures of city landmarks while gliding past storied locales including San Diego Harbor, the Gaslamp Quarter, and PETCO Park. While trundling through La Jolla, adventurers discover a few of the seaside resort's most stunning surf spots and beaches, wildlife, shopping areas, and parks where segways can play with other two-wheeled pets.
