USA Today gets around Christchurch with Urban Wheels Segway Tour

USA Today travel writer Liz Lewis recommends taking a Segway Tour as the best way to discover quake-damaged Christchurch, in an article published in today’s issue.

Since the earthquakes, Christchurch hasn’t been the easiest city to get around.  Confronted by damaged roads, dead ends, detours, and a closed off central city, visitors (and locals) can often be seen staring at a map with a baffled look on their face, trying to figure out not only what’s left to see but more importantly, how to get there.

My recommendation would be to forget about the map altogether and join a Segway tour.  As I discovered recently, it’s a seriously fun way of checking out the ‘new’ Christchurch. Run by Graeme Gordon of Urban Wheels, each tour provides a running commentary about Christchurch – past and present.
