San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2008
San Francisco and Sausalito Electric Tour Company turned four this year. To celebrate, it's offering a "fourth off" promotional package to any couple observing their fourth anniversary.
"The gift associated with four-year anniversaries is a boring appliance," explains San Francisco Electric Tour Company founder, Brian Huber. "But instead of giving your partner a blender or a toaster, why not give them a ride on one of our Segways? It's fun and it doesn't take up any counter space!"
Couples need only mention they got together four years ago, and if they reserve an Electric Tour Company Segway tour for two guests between September 4 and October 4, they'll get 25% off.
Segways are zero-emissions vehicles that operate on electricity, so they're easy on the environment as well as the wallet. The Segway PT i2 can travel as far as 24 miles on a single battery charge, making it an ideal replacement for mid-distance sightseeing tours.
Not Getting Older, Just Getting Better:
Every summer, the San Francisco Electric Tour Company finds new ways to enhance the Segway touring experience in Sausalito and San Francisco. This summer, the locally owned company has a new fleet of i2 Segways, 6 daily departures, 2 extra departure time slots, unmatched rider training, expert guides, and a scenic route addition. On Alternate days the waterfront tours now include a loop through North Beach's "Little Italy." The other alternate waterfront route extends out to the Palace of Fine Arts and the edge of Crissy field.
The new "Crookedest Street and Hills Advanced Segway Tour" continues to be popular. "Driving down Lombard Street on a Segway is an only in San Francisco experience!" says Huber, who conceived of the advanced route to please more adventurous travelers that had enjoyed a Segway tour before.
The Night Segway Tour of the city waterfront provides a romantic experience unmatched by anything available during the day. The lights reflect in the bay like jewels, the aromas of delicious dinners being prepared at the magnificent Wharf restaurants, and the famous San Francisco fog make for some spectacular memories!
More is Better:
"You know you're doing something right when you have steady, repeat business and more than 300 online guest reviews," says Huber, who added two more time slots to the company's daily departures and purchased 10 additional Segways to accommodate demand. "It was a blast! Our tour guide was fun and did a great job! My husband and I would have gone again, if we didn't leave the following day! We highly recommend it! You won't regret it!" said a satisfied customer.
"Really fun way to see an old city like San Francisco. Unlike a tour bus or boat, the Segway allows the visitor to travel down narrow passageways, like the piers, boardwalks and the walkway around the old Fisherman's Chapel on the pier. But you can cover much more ground than a walking tour. It also allows you to "feel" the hilly terrain more than one would in a bus, but without the exhaustion of walking it. Our tour guide was extremely understanding and patient and I would do it again in a NY minute," said a couple visiting San Francisco for the first time
