What an amazing way to the City and Vistas. We covered about 9 miles and saw areas we would probably not have checked out. To make the tour even better was our guide Melanie. Hilarious, well informed and was serious about safety!!!! Please ask for her you will not be disappointed!!!

While enjoying a long weekend away, we needed to condense activity. This 2 1/2 hour adventure was perfect! A blend of history, humor and memory maker made this our favorite activity. Susan- ‘soon to be famous screen writer’- was our excellent guide. He was very attentive to all the riders. The staff at ETC Segway Tours were all very helpful and courteous and seem to enjoy their work. From the reservation, teaching/training and safety measures, and tour, you’ll be happy with their personal service. I’d recommend this as a great option for first timers who want an overview of the Wharf area or as a different way to experience the familiar. Thanks for a great trip!
