segway tours of puerto ricoSegway Tours of Puerto Rico offers one of the best experiences you can have while on vacation in Puerto Rico.

If you have ever had the opportunity to ride a Segway, you know the benefits of this amazing personal vehicle.  If you have never been on a Segway before, put it on your “A” list of things to do.

Segway Tours of Puerto Rico offers two types of guided tours.  The first is the “Fortifications Segway Guided Tour” and lasts 2 hours.  The other type of tour offered is the “Sightseeing Segway Guided Tour” which lasts 45 minutes.
Both tour options include instruction on how to ride a Segway.  It is so quick and easy to learn “even Grandma can do it.”

(See Grandma learn to ride a Segway here.)

The Fortifications Tour takes you through Old San Juan where your guide tells a wealth of information in a fun and interesting way.  You will visit spots including the Princess promenade, the Wall of San Juan, the Fortaleza, and several monuments, just to name a few.

However, the highlight of the tour is visiting the San Felipe del Morro fort and grounds.  It is amazing!

The grounds are on top of a cliff and jut out looking over the beautiful blue ocean.  segway tours of puerto rico

At this point in the tour, Juan of Segway Tours of Puerto Rico has the group “park” the Segways to begin exploring the different areas of the camp.

There is plenty of time for photo ops and just enjoying the view.

In order to reach the San Felipe del Morro grounds, you must go up hill – way up hill.

It is amazing how easily the Segways ascend these hilly streets with such ease!

We passed many an exhausted tourist who was making the climb on foot.

These personal transportation machines are powerful and yet allow you to have an experience as if you were on foot, (unlike tour buses.)  Plus, Segways are so much fun to use!

Segway Tours of Puerto Rico

serves both land based tourists and cruise ship passengers.  When the cruise ships are in port the tour availability fills up faster.  It is advised to book in advance.  This is a popular cruise excursion.

Many on shore activities offered to cruise ship passenger have a weight limit, which can be a problem.  When one or more members of a family or group exceed the weight limit, it forces the group to either split up, or forgo the excursion.  With Segway Tours of Puerto Rico there is a generous weight limit so more groups can participate.

There is a minimum and maximum weight requirement to use a Segway with Segway Tours of Puerto Rico.  Riders must weigh at least 90 pounds minimum and 290 pounds maximum.  If you are close to the maximum weight limit, don’t hesitate to do this tour – I have seen this machine go up a steep street with a 290 pound rider with ease.

If you ever have the opportunity to see Old San Juan on a personal transport with Segway Tours of Puerto RicoI strongly recommend it.

    Segway Tours of Puerto Rico was the best tour we ever had. They were so good in training us and showing us all of Old San Juan. It was not expensive and we loved it.
