Hands down our best experience in our European trip last June was the Paris Segway Tour.
I was so happy that Rochelle agreed to take the Segway tour with me otherwise I would have been too chicken to do it myself. The 3 hour tour cost €90 per person and it was worth every Euro.
They also offered Flat Tire Bike Tours which were more popular because it lasted much longer and cost much cheaper.
I loved the children’s artwork of the Eiffel Towere that covered the posts of the overhead track.
More bikes inside their office.
Check out the Lance Fan on the wall of their office. I wonder if they’ve taken it down after HIS confession of doping.
They alloted an hour for the participants to learn how to use the Segway.
Our tour guide, Moko gave each us one on one instruction on how to mount and dismount the Segway. It was easy to go forward and it took longer to teach us how to stop. It was really easy once you get the hang of it.
Just look at my face on the bottom right pic. I was scared to death the first time I got on the Segway. I wonder what those ladies found so funny. Could it be my screaming?
I just loved using the Segway once I got my confidence. It was easy to stop on a dime but my favorite part was speeding on the bike paths in the middle of Paris. The cool wind felt wonderful and I felt so free and fast.
We would ride to each destination and stop while Moko told us about the history of each place. He would also give us time for picture taking.
When you go on this tour just bring your camera, a bottle of water, an umbrella or jacket and your wallet. Leave your big bags behind since the small compartment below the handle is where you have to put all your stuff.
We had to park our Segways at each stop or it will run away and fall down. There were only 6 of us in the group.
We ended the tour at the Eiffel Tower. I enjoyed seeing all the beautiful sights of Paris without having to walk or ride the Metro. The best part of the experience was really riding the Segway in a beautiful city like Paris. When we go back to Paris we want to take the night tour. I can only imagine how gorgeous that will be.
I highly recommend you take the Paris Segway tour. You will not regret it. They also have it in other cities. We saw them in Rome too.
