Segway of Scottsdale – Bringing Segway PTs to the West’s Most Western Town
Getting to Know Segway
Darcie Williams, Owner and Tour Guide at Segway of Scottsdale, first caught a glimpse of the Segway® Personal Transporter (PT) when working in Phoenix, Arizona. “The security guards at the building I was working in rode Segway PTs to patrol the campus and parking lots,” recalls Darcie. “I was instantly curious about the product and how it worked.”
One year later Darcie began following Segway Inc., learning more about the PT and exploring the possibility of opening an Authorized Segway Dealership. “At that time there was all sorts of coverage in the news about rising gas prices and green transportation alternatives. In addition, the Segway brand was earning a reputation around the world for being innovative and building high quality, safe products. Before long, I’d purchased a PT!” said Darcie. “I genuinely appreciated the mobility, maneuverability and fun it brought to my everyday life, and in no time, I made the decision to build a business around it.”
The Business Opens and Grows
Just one year after that, Darcie was celebrating Segway of Scottsdale’s Grand Opening. Initially, business revolved around selling Segway PTs to corporate campuses, law enforcement, private security and even construction companies who needed to efficiently move people – as well as servicing units as needed. However, before long the dealership’s first tour was launched. In fact, tours were popping up all across the world. Darcie adds, “In my opinion, the Segway PT revolutionized the tour industry and I was determined to capitalize on that growth.”
Today, Segway of Scottsdale is not only a successful Authorized Segway Dealer; it’s also a prosperous Affiliated Segway PT Tour. “We offer our guests three distinct tour options year round. They include tours of Tempe Town Lake, Downtown Phoenix and Old Town,” comments Darcie. “We consistently take up to 100 people on 12 tours each day and rank in the Scottsdale area’s top activities. I’m very proud of that.”
In fact today, TripAdvisor ranks Segway of Scottsdale’s tours as the area’s #1 and #2 rated tours in the area! To learn more or to book a tour, visit http://www.segwayofscottsdale.com/ or call 480.306.4801.
