This summer, our niece came to visit from Montana - hard to believe looking at this pic that it's nearly winter now!
I was really excited for the Segway Tour but a bit nervous - I'm not very athletic - so I was a bit worried. (and by "not very athletic" - I mean "a complete clutz")
And I will warn you - the next image is disturbing so view at your own risk :-)
We were on the Riverfront Tour and went through downtown and over to The Banks. It's a great tour and the time on the Riverfront is great because you really get to ride on a straightaway and just go and enjoy the view.
We hit a little snag on our first tour - we were supposed to have a video camera but the charging system wasn't working - so we ended up going on a second tour. This time - we synced up with Adventure Mom and her husband for the Eden Park tour.
All in all - both tours were amazing and I have to say - the Segway Tour was my favorite thing we did in entire our Stay-cation. I really enjoyed just tooling around and exploring a bit. On the Eden Park tour there's a bit more time to ride around - and it was beautiful in the evening!
I would recommend wearing SHOES - they recommend it as well - the whole trick to the Segway is leaning forward and backwards and your feet can cramp up a little. That said - flip flops didn't cut it.
And for the holidays - Segway has a special series of Holiday Segway Tours that are discounted to $60 per tour. The Holiday Glides with Santa start the day after Thanksgiving and go through downtown with stops at Union Terminal (stop for coffee/hot cocoa), City Hall, Fountain Square (photo opp with Santa) as well as other points of interest.
If you have family coming into town - I would book one of these evening tours right away - they book up quick. The lights, the scenery, the fun - you'll love it. I have literally told dozens of people about these tours - quite simply - a MUST-DO in Cincinnati!
Disclosure: I was given free tickets on both of these Segway Tours in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
