Why Choose a Nonpartisan Pedicab Tour over a Segway Tour?

On a pedicab tour, you will visit all the monuments in 2-3 hours.  On a Segway tour, you will not visit all the monuments

On a pedicab tour, you will have shade.  On a Segway tour you will not

On a pedicab tour, you will have your own private tour guide to interact with.  On a Segway tour, you will be in a group setting and have only limited personal interaction with your guide.

On a pedicab tour, we pick you up from any downtown location.  On a Segway tour, you must go to their office and finish at their office.

On a pedicab tour, you start at the time you want and go at your own pace.  On a Segway tour, you will go at the guide’s pace and stay on the company schedule.

On a pedicab tour, you will be seated during your tour.  On a Segway tour, you will be on your feet the whole time.

A pedicab tour is the perfect choice if you are not very mobile.  A Segway tour is not possible for anyone with mobility issues.
