When I worked at Walt Disney World 10 years ago, I rode a Segway for the first time .. so when I found out about the Segway tours in Richmond a few months ago, I said I wanted to go. My boyfriend and I decided to go on a 2-hour tour of Richmond and at first (literally the first 10 minutes) I thought to myself "there is no way I am going to be able to do this for 2 hours" but after I remembered how to work the Segway and stopped panicking every two seconds, it all came back to me and I LOVED the 2 hour tour .. it is a lot of "stop + go" jam packed full of history and information about Richmond. I have lived in Charlottesville for almost 7 years and I have spent tons of time in Richmond as it is only a quick hour drive down 64 but to be honest, I had no idea how important Richmond was and how much history came from that city. The tour guide was so knowledgeable, turns out he majored in History in college and was actually working on his graduate degree as well. I was very impressed with him. My boyfriend and I liked staying at the back of the pack so we could go a little faster and not be bumped up against another Segway as we went from location to location. When we got back to the Segway store, I already knew we would be back to do another tour! Tips: SUNBLOCK is needed if you go in the summer, the Segway store did pass around a bottle of sunblock to use if you didn't bring your own (which was pretty awesome - most places would SELL it .. not give it away for free) but I would bring some of your own, just incase they don't have it when you go, or if you need to reapply. I wore a long maxi dress and flip flops during my tour. Also, bring water .. I figured because I wasn't walking and on the Segway I wouldn't get thirsty .. wrong! Luckily, we made a pit stop during the tour where vending machine and bathrooms were available.
