A guided walking tour through a city can be a lot of fun, but you will be limited in how much you can travel through the city. Also, going on a long tour can leave you tired, and you may not be able to enjoy other aspects of your trip. For this reason, it's better to try a Segway tour.

Segways allow you to move more quickly and with less exertion. The Segway is also able to more easily maneuver city sidewalks and can stop on a dime. Fortunately, you don't have to purchase your own Segway, because there are several tour companies that will provide you with a Segway for the tour.
Hear the Tour Guide with Headphones
During a Segway tour, you are given a helmet for your own protection, and the helmet comes with headphones so that you can hear the tour guide. Otherwise, you are guided in a manner similar to that of any other tour. Because of the value of a Segway, these type of tours are now available around the world in most major cities.
The type of tours that you may find include tours of the city to learn about historical landmarks, tours through museums, and tours through areas of the city where guests can observe wildlife.
Learn to Operate the Segway Safely
Like with any mode of transportation, a Segway can come with some safety risks, but you can avoid them if you learn how to use a Segway properly. When used correctly, a Segway is safe and clean. Because Segways do not go very fast, you're less likely to be as injured on a Segway as you would be on a bicycle or motor vehicle.
Before you go on a Segway tour, you should learn how Segways work. Listen to the instructions that you receive from the tour guide. The more Segway tours that you go on, the easier that it will be to operate this vehicle.
Fortunately, going on a Segway tour is the safest way to learn because you'll be riding with others who are experienced with Segways. They can give you advice and help you avoid mistakes.
Always wear a safety helmet. If you want to be extra safe, wear padded clothing, elbow pads, and eye protection. Hold onto the Segway firmly. However, if you accidentally let go and fall, your clothing will reduce any injuries you might experience.
