They assured... More

Segway-ing is a great way to get a feel for the area. Having a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, entertaining guide made it all the more worthwhile. From the start everyone in the group were made comfortable by the interaction with our guide, the one and only Maggie. After a brief familiarization period with our chariots, we set off at high speed to... More

We’ve been to Chicago many times but this Segway tour really impressed us. Josh was an amazing Tour Guide. It’s a great way to see the city and truly enjoy the views. We had such a wonderful time that we will be seeking other Segway Tours when we travel to new destinations.

We had a great time on the segway tour! We were able to see all of the sites of the city and learn interesting facts/history too! Rusty did a great job teaching us how to safely ride the segways and maneuver around the city. He was really funny and entertaining too!

I had a really nice time with Absolutely Segway Tours. Our guide Maggie was so energetic and friendly. And Segway is a fun thing to drive. I would suggest to to that tour on your first day of visit to Chicago. It will give you some good ideas about the downtown area. After that you can have a better plan... More

Absolutely worth the money. We did the tour today with Tyler as our guide. . He made the historical facts easy to comprehend and transitioned to architecture, politics, geography and other relative topics seamlessly. Get ready to learn alot from him and laugh for about 2.5 hrs.

You don't want to go to Chicago without a Segway tour through Grant park. You especially want Rusty with Absolutely Chicago Segway as your guide.

I took a tour of the Chicago Museum Campus and Grant park today with my mom. We had a wonderful guide, Josh! He was so kind, personable and knowledgeable about the city. I live just outside the city and have been there countless times, so I was going more for the fun of riding a Segway. Turned out the tour... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
