Take a ride on a Segway, an electric-powered personal transportation device, as you zoom around the fascinating historic site of Fort James in Antigua. This small-group tour offers a unique method to check out one of the top tourist attractions in Antigua, plus have some free time to hit the beach before you leave.
Head to your starting point in Saint John's at 8:30am, where you’ll meet your guide and get a quick lesson on proper handling of your Segway. This remarkable self-balancing device offers the ultimate in maneuvering and mobility on any paved surface, allowing the tour to cover more ground than your typical walking tour. Once you’ve got the hang of it, your exploration of Fort James begins.
This British defensive base, constructed in 1706, was originally designed to protect against invasion by the French. Pass nimbly through the fort’s imposing wood gates on your Segway, then follow along with your guide as you hear the fascinating history of this unique historical site. In the distance the turquoise-blue Caribbean is visible.
After taking in your day’s history lesson, proceed by Segway towards the coast for some fun in the sun. Feel the gentle breeze on your skin and enjoy the path lined by tropical fruit trees as you head towards the beach for some down time. Once you reach the beach, grab a refreshing soft drink or water at the nearby bar, and feel free to take your time for sunbathing, reading or swimming during your break.
At the conclusion of your beach visit, head back by Segway to the tour’s starting point to finish your excursion.
