El Gouna by Segway
A drive through El Gouna
Segtours-Redsea offers Segway tours through El Gouna. Some may ask: What is a Segway?
The Segway Personal Transporter is an electrical driven one-person vehicle with only two parallel wheels. The carried person stands in the middle and speeds up or slows down by keeping the balance, holding his hands to a horizontal bar.
Each wheel is driven seperately by an electic engine. As the wheels can be turned in differing engine speeds, turns can be driven as if with a track vehicle.
The vehicle is self-balanced. An electronical closed loop makes the Segway automatically taking the direction the driver leans his body to. As soon as the the inclination sensors (semiconductor gyroscope) a driver's movement to front or back, the wheels move this direction. The locomotion is driven only by weight swift, as there are no controls for celeration and slowdown. This way the movement corresponds pretty much with the upright walking, where the body's center of gravity is led on one's feet. For this, the Segway is controled by intuition. A swivel of the handlebars to the left or right introduces the turn.
First of all you will get an introduction into using the Segway, in order to learn how to master this device. After 15 minutes you will get a helmet and be able to drive to the nicest places of El Gouna. Duration: about 1,5 hours.
Only with Fair Holiday: Your trip will be documented by pictures. You can buy these pictures on a DVD for only 5 Euros, after you return.
