Ecological Tourism on Two Wheels

Over the past few years, there have been many leading companies that offer guided tours with Segway, an electrically powered personal transportation, totally self-balancing. These companies, based in almost every capital of the world, offer an alternative and entertaining way of sightseeing.

Now you can enjoy your next vacation with an amazing electrically powered personal transportation, totally self-balancing, smaller than the average person height and has the ability to emulate human balance, which makes it almost impossible to fall down.

This revolutionary transportation is called Segway; this peculiar invention did not come just for leisure and tourism, it was designed to be used for short distances, be an alternative to vehicular traffic jams and contribute to the environment.

The Segway comes in different styles: ranging from city models, golf courses models, all-terrain with wider wheels models and even Segway models for Police Deputies!
Segway uses the same space as a pedestrian and can go anywhere where a person can walk. Segway let you go farther, move faster (up to 20km / h) and carry more things than usually you can carry.

Over the past few years, there have been many leading companies that offer guided tours with Segway. These companies are present in large cities such as New York, Las Vegas, Paris, Barcelona, etc. Segway is a useful tool for leisure and entertainment, thanks to its modern design and its friendly-way to use it.

Segway features allow innovative and creative ways to enjoy your destination in a very unique and totally different way; you can take the Segway nearly to every kind of streets, buildings, walk along the beach, take it to the malls, and a long list of different ways that you can use this modern personal transportation, which at the same time is a quiet device, safe and best of all: friendly with our environment.

Segway Tours typically range are from half an hour up to four hours, they can be arranged in pairs or groups, each city and each company can have its own rules but the experience is completely the same.

We can find Segway in major European and American cities such as Paris, Vienna, Atlanta, Washington, and Chicago, among others; that have made Segway a sophisticated device used by various social groups such as police and airport employees.

Below you can find a list of websites of Segway Tours in the world:
Barcelona: http://www.barcelonasegwayglides.com/
New York: http://offmanhattan.com
Las Vegas: www.segwaylv.com
Paris: http://citysegwaytours.com/paris
Bangkok: www.segwaytourthailand.com
Chicago: http://citysegwaytours.com/chicago
Miami: http://segwaysouthbeach.com/
Vienna: http://citysegwaytours.com/vienna

However, if you're interested being in the nature, Segway has also has offroads models, which are reinforced with much larger wheels to support off-road routes.
You can find off-road Spain Segway Tours in:

The majority of the people have some hesitation when considering the Segway as a valid alternative personal transportation, its innovative features make it necessary to try it and at the end it will finish seducing us and demonstrating its benefits to each user.

Although the first impression of a Segway might be that it requires having balancing skills, but is a simple erroneous visual impression, that completely will change as soon we get on it. (Also before starting the tour, there is 12-mins video instruction that would let you learn the necessary and basic things to enjoy your guided tour).

The next time you visit a major city, do not forget that there are Segway tours and they will be a great alternative and entertaining adventure to get to know better that city.

A Segway Tour, without doubt, is an experience that you cannot miss, is a guarantee of fun and probably you will repeat in every touristic destination you visit. The only requirements are: Be at least 16 years old and willing to have an extraordinary good time!
