I'm so sorry. The bugs are gone. They are only here for 3 weeks and then they're done until next year.

I am trying to decide between Segways at Kayak Amelia or the one (@ Omni hotel). did you see any wildlife on the ride? did you get to go down by the water? Did you feel like this tour was off the beaten path? I've done Segway rides in Boston before a couple of times but this will be my boyfriend's 1st ride so I want to pick the right one. Any info helpful. Thanks
