Segway... a very unique way of traveling. Our guide Nate was very helpful and informative. We had a beautiful day, cruising the lakefront, visiting Buckingham Fountain, Grant park,Shedd Aquarium, the Planetarium, Northerly Island and the Spaceship known as Soldier Field !! A little history, a little info and a great time with my wife and daughter. Try it. You'll like... More

Nate is the human embodiment of a Segway: fun and practical! My group of 7 had a blast cruising around Chicago with him, enjoying a perfect blend of joyriding and learning about the city. He also took us to get maybe the best hot dog I've ever eaten. After Nate introduced us to the wonder that is Segwaying with all... More

Hi We are 3 females from CT in our 50's who did the City Segway Tour on August 7th. It was pouring rain ( we bought ponchos at Walgreens) and a mass of people at Lollapallooza to try and avoid, we still had a great time. Nate was a terrific guide, kept us safe crossing the streets and a lot... More

We had Ryan and thought his style was engaging. In fact, we ran into a few of the other Segway tour companies and one of the other guides was quite obnoxious inviting us to listen in to his information as he belted it out for the entire world to hear. I much preferred Ryan's low-key style and he answered the... More

We took a Segway tour on Monday, August 3, 2009. My husband, my 13 yr old son, and myself were in Ryan's groups and he made learning to ride the Segway, and touring Chicago fun. He was funny and he knew a lot about Chicago history. This was our first trip to Chicago, and City Segway Tours definitly made the... More

City Segway tours was our highlight of this year's trip to Chicago. Ryan (our guide) was not only personable, but very informative about the landmarks of Chicago. The tour was very enjoyable. We (party of 4 women) were a little intimidated at first regarding our ability to operate the Segway, but were soon very comfortable and "experts" at negotiating the... More

We took City Segway's 3 hour tour on Monday, August 4, 2009. Riding the segways was great fun and very easy to learn to do. So don't let fear of the vehicle stop you from trying this adventure. Unfortunately, as is often the case, the value of this tour depends on the quality of the guide you draw. We drew... More

This tour was fantastic!!! It was our son's 17th birthday and we thought this would be fun. Boy were we right. Our guide Nate, was great. He had a wonderful sense of humor but was also concerned with everyone being comfortable on the Segway. Nate also stressed safety and made sure that everyone had a good time. When people ask...

This was my 2nd time visiting Chicago and this was by far the best thing I have done. We had an intimate tour around the city with our tour guide Jimmy Z/James. He was amazing, very easy going, funny, knew lots about the city and we had many photo opps. I was nervous about doing the tour as I thought... More
