My husband and I chose their 3 hour tour. Neither one of us had ridden on a segway. Chris was our guide. He was professional, fun and extremely knowledgeable of the city and operating the segway with safety. He was committed to us having the best experience we could and we did. Everyone was great. We HIGHLY recommend them for... More

Chris did a great job of asking us what we wanted to see. He asked about how he could tailor the trip to best suit us. Chicago has many attractions and we were pleased with the way Chris spent the right amount of time at each stop. He was friendly and had a lot of fun. We have taken segway... More

So this is my 4th segway tour, second with City Segway and I would rank it in the bottom half. Our guide was tammy and I feel like she was super passionate about Chicago and was very enthusiastic about explaining things. It always helps when the guide knows alot about the city which she did. However I feel like she... More

Hello Arthur, We're always glad to have the frequent flyers on tour, though it sometimes makes for a little different experience for the customer as they come in with a pretty solid handle on riding the machines. Thanks for some solid feedback here, it's something to start from with Tammie and the staff as we approach our fall meeting in... More

We really enjoyed our tour on the Segway and found it very safe, interesting and informative. Out guide, Tammy, was very professional and explained a lot about the buildings and the city. We opted for the 3 hour tour and i would recommend this as there is lots to see and the pacing of this tour was great. Even with... More

My husband had been wanting to do the segway tour in Chicago. I was more apprehensive mainly because I didn't trust myself to safely ride on it. We called up the same day to do the architecture tour in the afternoon but it was already filled. They recommended the night tour, and boy, did I find myself having the time... More

I will begin by saying that I was very apprehensive about riding a Segway. I am not even good on a bicycle so this ride really concerned me. When we arrived we were greeted with a smile and given our paperwork right way. We were told to have a seat and that there would be a short safety video before... More

We chose City Segway Tours after reading reviews of other segway tour companies in Chicago. i'm glad we did. The one glitch was that our tickets had the old address, so we did not make our appointed tour time. We called the number and explained the situation, and we were rescheduled for another tour later in the day - with... More

Please, do not even think of going on a Segway tour without reading through Tripadvisor first. There are a number of firms operating tours, and these guys are the professionals. There are hazards in every human activity, and the measure of a tour company is it's ability to limit and identify them so you can make an informed decision. These... More

Our family of two adults and three children, ages 14, 14 and 12, did the 3 hour segway tour with Paul the day that we arrived in Chicago. It was a perfect way to start our trip. While we were tired from waking up early that day, the segways required minimal energy and we were able to get a great... More

We are staying very centrally so are well placed to explore many things by ourselves, but we wanted a more structured introduction to the city to give us a taste of its history and culture. We felt that the Segway tour did just that and was lots of fun in the process. Tammy, our guide, was entertaining and well informed.... More
