These tours are at a premium due to being scheduled further in advance, increased tour flexibility, and other special considerations. Private and specialty/seasonal tours available year round. Pricing & fees for private segway events are based on & may include: restaurant stops, food & beverages for a meet & greet, tour times, number of participants &/or guides, program planning & tour development, etc. Payment in full by company check or credit card will reserve this tour, which is required upon confirmation of program proposal.
