  • TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA: Here's a photo marketing Segway tours in San Francisco. We don't have Alcatraz, of course. Or much fog.

Remember the Segway? Starting next week, you'll be able to hire guided tours of downtown Little Rock on them, not to mention purchase them for your home use.

The news release:

Segway of Arkansas officially opens their downtown LR store next Tuesday. They are located in the garage shops at 404 E. Third Street.

Segway of Arkansas, a full-service sales and service dealership, offers tours, corporate and event rentals and customized events. Popular around the globe, the Segway® Personal Transporter (PT) is a self-balancing personal transportation device designed to go anywhere — in a safe, eco-friendly, efficient manner. Segway PTs will be used in guided tours of popular locations and local scenic areas. Tour programs include 1.15 and 2 hour tours of downtown Little Rock or can be customized to meet a group’s needs. Customers can try it for only $10, which can be applied toward the cost of a guided tour, which start at $39 per person and include orientation.

In addition to tours, Segway of Arkansas will also sell and service Segways, as well as offer rentals for corporations and events. Segway of Arkansas will also customize onsite events and team builds.

Valerie Erkman is the owner of the new business. 372-3200 is the office phone.
