Segway Tours Coming to Memphis

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 3:42 PM


Segway, Inc. will begin offering tours of the city on their two-wheeled electric vehicles (dubbed motorized personal transporters by the Segway folks) beginning next Thursday, March 22nd. Segway Inc.'s Memphis tour operation will be headquartered at the Peabody Hotel downtown.

“Segway PT tours will be a great addition and a fun way to introduce our hotel guests to our downtown area and show them what makes Memphis so special,” said Douglas Browne, general manager at The Peabody.

The two-hour tour will begin with a safety video and then guests will depart from the hotel riding Segways. They'll pass by Beale Street, the Mississippi River, Cotton Row, the Orpheum, and the National Civil Rights Museum among other landmarks.

Tickets are $59 per person and excursions will be offered daily. Riders must be at least 14 years old and weigh between 100 and 260 pounds. For more information, go to the Memphis Segway Tours Facebook page.
