Minneapolis (PRWEB) June 27, 2013

Mobile Entertainment announces the new Segway Insider Tour! Starting at the Minneapolis Convention Center, the tour will take riders through the heart of downtown and show off the best of the city's sights, from famous landmarks to hidden gems. Along the way, expert guides will share secrets of the city, from tales of its intriguing past to tips for navigating the streets, giving riders the spark and insights to encourage further exploring.

This tour is being offered for a limited time (this summer only) and will give convention center guests, tourists and even locals an insider’s perspective to our great city, including Loring Park, Nicollet Mall, the Guthrie Theater, the Minneapolis riverfront, Gateway Park, and the Theater District.

“The tour features 15 Insider Secrets, which even a Minneapolis native might be surprised to learn,” says Mobile Entertainment president, Bill Neuenschwander. “For example, many people do not know that Minneapolis is home world’s largest skyway system which links 69 blocks over 11 miles.”

This is the first tour offered by Mobile Entertainment that starts at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The tour company recently purchased the “Show Hauler” featured above and now has the capacity to bring 100 Segways to venues across the city, the region and country.

The 3-hour Insider Tour has limited availability and is offered at 8:30 am on the following dates:

July 1, 2, 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 
August 7, 14, 21, 28 
The cost of this tour is $80 per person. For reservations, call 952-888-9200.
