Our family has travelled all over the world and taken many tours, but this one ranks on the top tier! Steve was able to fit us on the same day of our call and even made a special arrangement so that we get a 3 hour tour on a small group. We were thoroughly trained on the Segway before taking... More

This tour was similar-- about 30 minutes of training followed by the actual tour on the newer i2 model. This time, we had the Geekboys with us, as Steve’s allows teens... More

This is the best way to spend your first day. Freddy had great suggestions for places to go and things to see for the rest of our week, and we felt like we had a feel for a chunk of the city, having seen it up close on the Segway. The training we got was the best - it was... More

We had a great morning with Freddy at Steve's Segway tours. The equipment was in great shape, the training was thorough and Freddy, our guide, was very knowledgeable about Chicago, fun, and attentive to our needs. It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and interesting tour of Chicago.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Freddy is definitely one of the few people I consider "true Chicago" (accent, mannerisms,etc.) and his knowledge and pride of the city is just astounding. We are grateful to have him working with us. I will be sure to pass on your message to him. Glad you had a great time. Thanks... More

I chose a segway tour because of the limited time I had to explore Chicago and my complete unfamiliarity with the town. This tour was great not just because the segways are super fun and easy to learn but it gave a newbie tourist like me a better idea of where to go and how the area is layed out.... More

I have done several of these tours around the country. This one is really good. Justin was our guide. He handled a rambunctious 12 year old very well. We were a group of 12. He offered a lot of guide advice. I liked the route. This was the lake tour. Awesome photo opps! A group of 12 is not really... More
