LISTEN....DO NOT judge the "dorks" in the orange helmets riding Segways through downtown Chicago! I was once one of those people. I swore I'd never do it! While trying to find an activity to kill some time, I agreed to try the Absolutely Chicago Segway Tour with my friends (6:00pm Millennium/Grant Park Tour)....... This is the best thing I've ever...

I signed up the Halloween night tour as I had an 11 hour layover before my midnight flight. I had done San Fran tours and want to do a Chicago tour for a change. Staff were in the mood, dressed up in Halloween costumes; our guide Josh had a Sherlock type outfit and powdered white face! The tour was cold,... More

My daughter and I went on the Haunted Segway tour. Kim was our guide and she was wonderful. She taught us each personally how to use the Segway. Her haunted stories were very engaging, fun and informative. This was our first time ever riding Segways or using this company. We will definitely recommend this company and bring the rest of...

Excellent company, very professional staff. Kate was a brilliant tour guide with great knowledge, but not too much info to make us bored. The lakefront tour was really interesting and we covered so much ground ( helped by perfect sunny weather!). Thank you for our best Chicago experience.

Friendly and efficient booking, careful attention to safety, and an engaging, personable, and conscientious tour guide, Kim. Kim was careful to keep things safe, always pointing out obstacles, etc. But she was also playful and full of energy and great stories. I... More
