I have to come clean and admit that I thought that a Segway tour sounded ridiculous. I couldn't have been more wrong. Our guide - Casey - was a great and thorough instructor and had us giggling and smiling the entire time. He's a very diplomatic, insightful and entertaining guide who put us at ease right off the start. Although... More

Our tour guide Casey (hope I spelled that right) was really excellent, very patient and funny and willing to answer questions. Made sure we were all comfortable with the Segways before we started, then tailored the tour to fit what the group wanted. Never ridden a Segway before but it went great and I would totally take another tour with... More

First time on a Segway. Guide John H. taught the whole group quickly, none of us had ridden a Segway before. Good 2 hour diversion, decent history provided. You stand the whole time, be prepared for that. We covered a lot of ground. Friendly staff, would try in another city also.

WOW - what a fun experience! I would do it again in a heartbeat! Our tour guide, Casey (KC?) was knowledgeable, funny and PATIENT! He had to deal with a variety of different ages, skills and nerves :) when training my 10 family members to use the Segways. Growing up in Chicago, I have seen these sights many times- but... More

Yesterday we took our tour... and we would 100% recommend this tour to our friends. Joel, our tour guide, was outstanding! My family bonded with him over Harry Potter and love for performing. Beautiful sights, had a blast on the Segway, and can't wait to come back :)

This was my first time riding on a Segway, and it was INCREDIBLE. I've ran races, rode the bikes, and just about everything else exploring downtown whenever I can, but never had the chance to ride a segway until this day! I was a little nervous, but the staff was very good about explaining how everything works and taking it... More

As part of a group of 18 teen girls and adults, we took a 2 hour tour and had a great time. The staff was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a nice way to see a lot of the City in a short amount of time, with the aid of a tour guide.

On our bucket list of activities: riding a Segway. Not as easy as it looks, but the guides educate you and monitor your experience. I did it! A upbeat, educational experience and unique way to see Chicago. Royen (sorry if it's spelled wrong) is a professional guide willing to learn your name, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Chicago without being overwhelmed... More

This was an amazing tour! It was a bit intimidating getting started on the Segway but with a little practice I was feeling comfortable. Ed, the tour guide, was friendly, attentive, informative and lots of fun. Can hardly wait to do this again!
