I have never even touched a Segway but always wanted to try. I joined a group of fellow travelers for a two hour tour, which included a 30 minute training session. We all got the hang of it very quickly and off we went, all the way past the Field Museum, Shed Aquarium and up to Soldier Field.. Its amazing... More

Our segway tour was a blast! Royan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about Chicago and was excellent with helping us newbies just learning how to use a Segway. I highly recommend this trip!!!

We purchased tickets ahead of time and confirmed the time and final price of the tour via phone a couple days ahead of time. When we got there they made everybody give them their credit cards to "hold" and charged everyone an extra $20 for "taxes and fees" that were not mentioned online. They tell you about a $3 tire...

I was worried about booking with this company because I had a group. I decided to give it a try...that was a mistake. When I had called to reserve my spot they required a credit card number which I thought was normal and didn't think it was a big deal. I had bought 2 groupons, when I went to redeem... More

Purchased a Groupon deal for this company for me and some as gifts for friends. When making my reservation I was told we could not use the gift Groupons and they would have to go on a tour by themselves on separate days for the gift Groupons to be valid. What? They were very unfriendly about this and in the... More

We had never experienced a Segway prior to this experience and after a 30 minute training session we were seasoned travellers. After the orientation the tour went for 90 minutes around Lake Michigan, Millenium Park, Soldier's Field and Navy Pier. Most fun I have had in years.

My travelling companion and I had a great time on the tour! We found all the information we were given interesting and John out guide was enthusiastic about the city- which was infectious. We highly recommended it! Many thanks, The Brits.

A great way to see Chicago! Our tour guide, Kim was awesome! Very patient with first time users of a Segway. The price was very reasonable also. Will definitely do it again to see another area of Chicago.

Our tour guide was great and he dealt with a nervous person well, although begged for tips. Overall, the tour was disappointing as a 2 hr 30 min tour was more like 1 hr 30 min and went on a museum tour instead of an advertised northern tour. They also nail you for a $3 tire insurance fee. We just... More
