You'll hit the road and the beach on this fun tour. Take a short van ride from the cruise center to the starting point at the beginning of beautiful historic Grand Turk. Here you'll meet your guide and will be given instructions on how to control your personal Segway. You'll be surprised how quickly you get the hang of it and how fun it is to ride.
Once you've mastered the Segway, set out to explore and experience historic Grand Turk. On your tour you will see picturesque Duke and Front Streets, famous for the old Bermudian-style architecture, historic churches, old cannons and buildings made from old ships. Because you are on the Segway, you will have the opportunity to venture into some of the smaller middle roads where regular bus tours cannot go to get a sense of the heart and culture of people of Grand Turk.
For an added thrill you'll have the opportunity to ride your Segway on the pristine white beaches of Grand Turk and stop to view the turquoise water. Throughout your tour, your guide will enlighten you with the rich history of the island on several stops during the tour including viewing the Salt Ponds and learn the rich history of the Salt Raking days.
On your return to the cruise center you’ll also have the opportunity to view the Friendship Capsule, a replica of the original space capsule that splashed down off the coast of Grand Turk in 1962. This is truly a unique and fun way to experience Grand Turk.
