Australia’s Segway Tours South Coast Earns Ecotourism Certification
Segway Tours South Coast in New South Wales, a state on Australia’s east coast, was recently honored with an Ecotourism certification. This certification is recognized by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council. It ensures that tourists are supporting a touring experience that has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability and the environment.
Segway® Personal Transporters (PTs) are self-balancing, two wheeled, electric vehicles which are extremely maneuverable and produce zero emissions. Tourists can be trained to ride in as little as 30 minutes and are sure to enjoy the experience.
“Ecotourism certification is important to our business. Every day we integrate the PT with the environment to create an exhilarating adventure,” said David Munn, Manager, Segway Tours South Coast. “This honor represents our ongoing commitment to minimize the impact of our tour operations, including restricting PT tours to established routes, and protect our beautiful surroundings.”
“Today, there are more than 1,000 Segway PT tours operating throughout the world. Often it’s the first experience consumers have with our product,” said Rod Keller, President, Segway Inc. “We‘re thrilled to hear that these tours are earning eco-certifications to set them even further apart from other tour alternatives.”
Segway Tours South Coast offers 90-minute guided tours of Coolangatta Estate (near Berry) and Killalea State Park (near Kiama). Guests experience the wonder of the PT and the South Coast’s spectacular grasslands, vineyards, wetlands and beach landscapes.
