Segway scooter tours are popping up everywhere these days. Truth be told, the popularity of the said personal transport has spread towards different parts of the globe, including Paris, Madrid, San Francisco, Canada, Tokyo, and more.

Now, the fever has found a new spot, in the form of Manila’s famed Walled City, Intramuros.

Last July 1st, Segway Philippines, formally known as Simply Moving Philippines, launched The Navigator: An E-Adventure to the Past Segway PT service through a press event held at Club Intramuros. As the name implied, this will allow families and groups of friends to navigate around the 18-hole golf course of the said venue, whilst enjoying different sights of the Walled City.

As the tour progresses, tour guides will be interacting with the guests as they provide information about different points of interests which can be found at the track. Furthermore, stops will be taken to give time for the riders to take photos and refreshments. Depending on the pace, the tour will take at an estimate of 30 minutes to an hour.

Some requirements need to be filled prior to undertaking the tour. These are the following:

- Must be at least 14 years of age to ride
– Must weigh 100 lbs. minimum and no more than 270 lbs.
– One rider per Segway PT
– Intoxicated riding prohibited


Members of the press take their Segway tour of the Walled City.

This isn’t the first time that Segway Philippines organized a scooter tour in the country. Similar services were already established in Boracay and Enchanted Kingdom. This time around, the company aims to introduce the convenience of riding a Segway PT in the heart of Manila. They have also revealed their plans to expand their reach throughout other places in the Metro, such as a potential sunset drive at Manila Bay, and a historic tour at Rizal Park.
