Sometimes the best way to experience a city isn’t via car, foot or bus. Many cities now offer tours with unique transportation options, and here we’ve listed the coolest ways to travel:
 
Bike. Looking to get a little extra exercise on your tour of the city? Cities, including Munich and Washington D.C., offer group bike tours. However, if you prefer to go out on your own, most major cities now have bike systems where you can easily rent bikes from stations.
 
Segway. A newer age mode of transportation—the Segway—might be more your style. With a Segway, you’ll be able to cover a good amount of ground with little effort. Cities ranging from Charlotte, NC to Madrid, Spain have special Segway tours.
 
Animal. To get in touch with nature while on your trip, you could try a tour via animal ride. In Asia, cities such as Bangkok, Thailand and Jaipur, India offer elephant riding tours, while you can find horse riding tours in places like Florence, Italy.
 
Cable Car. For a different view of the city, look for a cable car tour. San Francisco is well known for their tour, but you can also find what are referred to as “gondola” rides in mountainous locations such as Gulmarg, India.
 
Water. Cities with calm rivers often give tours via various modes of water transport. In Fairbanks, Alaska you can go on a canoe tour along the Chena River, and in Paris, you can relax with riverboat tour along the Seine. Amsterdam also offers canal tours.
