Riding a Segway should be easy, right?
Pretty in Pink
A Rocky Start
Look at me go!
It took me a while to stop looking immediately in front of my machine and instead take the time to look at the pretty surroundings as well.
At one point I felt like I was flying and I was so proud of myself to have finally let loose and whiz down the street – only to see a family with small children walk past me. Guess I wasn’t going so fast after all!
I can’t thank the guys at Segway Ontario enough – they were relaxed, friendly, and they really knew their stuff. They never made me feel silly or awkward (although I absolutely looked like both!) and they were passionate about their neighbourhood, which makes for a winning combination as tour-guides.
Segway Ontario tours start at $39 for 30 minutes, and hour long walking tours start at $19. The best value would come from a walking tour, as you get double the time for about half the money. However, as a special attraction or experience, I think the Segway tour is a reasonably priced option.
They offer an evening ghost themed Segway tour and that would definitely be my top choice – it would be a fun alternative to the usual evening activities in the area and a great way for solo travelers to meet new friends and enjoy a unique group activity.
As always, I welcome and encourage your comments. What's the most unique kind of tour you've ever taken?
