Paris on a Segway!

On the second morning of our trip to Paris my eldest daughter and I chose take a Paris Segway tour. The rest of the family went up to the top of the Eiffel tower, and we headed to GoGo Segway tours for a 3 hour group tour. When we arrived we discovered we were the only ones booked – so we effectively had a private tour for the price of a group tour.

Our guide (Daniel I think) was helpful, informative and soon had us up and away on the Segways. They really are a fun way to see a city – we covered over 10 miles in the 3 hours, with lots of stops for photos of course.  It only took about 5 minutes of practice outside the GoGo offices and then we were off.

By this stage we were getting more confident, and it was lovely travelling along the side of the Seine towards the Louvre

Other sights included were the Champs Elysee and the Arc de Triomph

We stopped at the Trocadero for a great view of the Eiffel Tower

If you have ever wondered about trying a Segway – go for it! Fun and a great way to see lots of a city in a short time.

Have you ever tried a Segway? Let me know!
