We did this tour in January, it was a little cold but with the overall outfits that were provided this wasn't a problem. Our guide Kym was pretty cool, the staff at the shop were nice as well. I highly recommend!!!

I surprised my family prior to Christmas with the Christmas Segway Tour. We had 7 adults--ages 58-20 participate. What a blast. We were very pleased with the training. They also tailored the tour to our family. We are from Chicago so the tour was directed to us and not participants that are not from the area. Kym was our tour... More

The Segway tour is a great way to see and learn about Chicago they are easy to ride and the leader kym made the trip even more fun. she would tell us about the history and architecture. It is a must if you want to get a lot for the time you spend. I will do it again DD

Riding the segway through the city at night was so fun. I had never been on a segway before but it was easy to learn. Our tour guide Kate was so friendly and helpful. If you are in town please check this out!

We took the city tour by Absolutely Chicago Segway Tours and it was the high light of the trip, besides the wedding we were there for. They look intimidating to maneuver but Kym, our guide, made learning to ride them easy, even for the most uncoordinated in our group. She was knowledgeable, flexible and had a great sense of humor.... More

OK, so their office is not the easiest to find but the search is well worth it. Had a lovely 2-hr evening tour through holiday-lit Chicago. Kym was an excellent guide. Good balance between actual tour-stuff and just gliding around for the fun of it. Yes, segways ARE a ton of fun. You should try it!

Saw the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. The tour did a great job of giving us an up-close and personal view of the city, done by a tour guide who definitely knew her stuff. Not sure if it was worth the $70 per segway, but definitely something fun to try if money is not... More

This was the most unique way to tour the city with my sisters, and Absolutely Chicago Segway Tours made it a truly memorable experience. Nate, our most excellent and personable guide, made certain each of us were comfortable using the Segway before our tour began. He provided special attention to one sister who was unsure on the downhill. We had... More

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...
