Atlanta en Segway: turismo por el centro
Pase por delante de las altas torres del distrito de negocios del centro, seguido de las casas señoriales de Ansley Park, con estilos arquitectónicos como Tudor, artesanal y Renacimiento italiano. En las inmediaciones, recorra una parte de Piedmont Park, un gran espacio verde con kilómetros de camino pavimentado para ir a pie o en bicicleta, un amplio espacio para eventos, zonas de pícnic y parques infantiles.
Haga una pausa con su pequeño grupo delante de la casa museo de Margaret Mitchell para conocer más a fondo a la periodista de Atlanta. Aquí es donde vivió y donde escribió su famosa novela Lo que el viento se llevó. Justo al otro lado de la calle, su guía le señalará el Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, que cuenta con un museo gratuito con exposiciones sobre la historia del dinero y donde podrá ver los elevadores automáticos que mueven montones de dólares por las criptas del banco. No muy lejos se ve el campus de una destacada universidad de investigación: el Instituto de Tecnología de Georgia.
Siga un poco más para admirar el ornamentado diseño morisco del Fox Theater, uno de los lugares favoritos para realizar actuaciones en directo. Cerca de aquí, encontrará el distrito de restaurantes del centro y su guía le indicará algunos de los mejores lugares para comer y beber. Durante el trayecto de regreso al punto de partida, pasará por el Centennial Olympic Park, sede de los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano de 1996, el Acuario de Georgia y el museo World of Coca-Cola.
Con la facilidad de uso del Segway, dará una vuelta divertida por el centro mientras disfruta de las frecuentes paradas para gozar de los lugares de interés y escuchar la historia de Atlanta de la mano de su experto guía antes de regresar al punto de partida original.

I, along with three friends who were visiting had the time of our lives on the Midtown Atlanta tour. None of us had ever been on a Segway and we were all a little nervous beforehand hoping we would be able to maneuver them. But Jake and John, the instructors/tour guides were patient and thorough with the 30-minute training session. We felt very comfortable by the time we heading out on the tour. I can't say enough about the entire team, and would highly recommend any of their tours. Go out and try this! You'll be glad you did.
This was a long tour for the price. John and CK were our guides and half way through they split us 9 into 2 groups and we stayed with John. My friend had never ridden a Segway before and was a little worried. She has 2 titanium knees and needed to stop once just to sit for a minute. John was very accomodating that way. They also did more training than most Segway shops this was my 6th or 7th time. Safety was stressed and they pointed out things along the way in that regard. The sites were nice and John's knowledge was thorough, his attitude good and demeanor very upbeat. CK was also upbeat and a great guy.
Laura did an excellent job on this tour. Blended some history with great recommendations for food and entertainment. Great way get a feel for this part of the city. If your son or daughter are considering Georgia Tech, nice way to get a feel for this area of Atlanta. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because, honestly, there is just that not much to see history-wise in mid-town Atlanta compared to other cities. The tour and company were definitely 5 starts though.
Fantastic experience - riding through the down, across streets, weaving through pedestrians. We felt like we got into the nooks and crannies of Atlanta. How do you take a bunch of senior citizen types like us and get them all very comfortable on a segway pretty darn fast and then have them whisking all over town? Try this - and you'll find out! We're hooked - wonderful fun!
Laura ensured that we had a very enjoyable tour around Atlanta. We started with about 30mins of practise, which was very important to those of us who were very nervous and had never been on a Segway - don't be nervous, Laura gave me the confidence to start the tour, even if I was not confident. We started slowly with a tour of the Olympic park both to get into the sites as well as gain confidence. We have hen set off on a long tour of midtown seeing all the sites and getting a great commentary as we went round. Three hours later we we finished with a great recommendation for a place to have a cold beer. Not often do I go home with a large smile on my face, but it's still there
Lots of Fun great experience. Only wish I would have done this when I first got to Atlanta. Lots of places that they showed me to go and do.
