Fat Tire Bike Tours--and Segway Tours


Summer's winding down and you're looking back on fond memories of great vacation adventures. But you can't rest on your laurels. You've set a standard to be beaten in your next get-away, and admit it: you are a bit envious of that lot on their Segways under the Eiffel Tower. So jot this one in your grey matter databank for the next time your travels take you to Paris, Vienna, Budapest, Atlanta, Chicago or Washington D.C. And hopefully you can let the good times roll in a restored New Orleans soon.The City Segway Tours are an extension of an already successful recipe used by Fat Tire Bike Tours (formerly Mike's Bike Tours in some cases). Enhancing the native cultural and historical interest of the cities toured is the knowleadgeable team of guides, some of whom have been dishing the local grist for many seasons. The company is American owned and operated, so you can rely on a good English tour, and many of the guides are multi-lingual so other languages can often be accomodated. And if the company philosophy follows the practices in Berlin (where only the fat tire bikes are available so far), associated services may range from a cup of hot tea after the ride to internet access and laundry facilities.
