Segway Tours in San Antonio
By Viator, October 2013
On the Ultimate San Antonio Segway Tour, zip from Market Place to the Bexar County Courthouse on a tour that will be condensed in a manageable two and a half hours. The distance on a walking tour would take the entire day (the Riverwalk alone is 2.5 miles long) so the Segway allows you to see everything in a short period of time.
While downtown as a whole can be walked, one thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the scorching Texas sun beating down on you all the while. In summer the temperatures can easily be above 100 degrees, and during the winter, while not hot, you’re still at risk for one of those elusive winter sunburns due to the amount of sun San Antonio gets.
One of the things that people don’t realize is how ecologically friendly riding a Segway can be. With San Antonio becoming more and more green, support the local values by riding these electric vehicles instead of hopping into a tour bus. As transportation around downtown is relatively short, minimize your carbon footprint while still being able to see San Antonio’s great sites. Plus, Segways are just fun, as you control the direction it moves not with the press of a button, but with the direction you lean your body. There’s no other form of transportation like it, and it makes for a very memorable and active, yet comfortable, way to see the city.
