We’ve been evangelizing the fun of the Segway platform as an alternative form of transportation ever since! In spring of 2004 we opened up our retail store, “The Magical History Tour” at our 125 Main Street location in the historic district of downtown Minneapolis. We’ve traveled all over Minnesota and the United States with the largest fleet of Segways maintained in the country at any one location. « less

My 13 year old son and I have never been on a Segway so we were a little scared to try this. Segways are completely easy to figure out and operate and a fantastic way to explore the city and learn some history. We would do this again in a heartbeat! If you have bad knees like me, I recommend... More

My husband and I totally enjoyed our Segway tour of the riverfront of Minneapolis. The guides were very good at teaching how to use the Segway. At first, I didn't think I would we able to manage it but they encouraged me to continue to practice and if I did not feel comfortable I would not be charged. Well, sure... More

My son and I really enjoyed this tour. It was first time on Segways for both of us but the training was excellent and we were feeling comfortable in no time. Our guide, Greg shared the city's history in an engaging way and made the whole trip fun and memorable. I loved the water and cookie break. It was good... More

We were a bit nervous but the super friendly and helpful guides had us up and moving in a couple of minutes! Greg was a great tour guide, stopping along key points on our route and explaining the history of Minneapolis. We road for hours and they were taking pictures of us (free online!) We felt it was an excellent... More

Our group of five decided to "play tourist" and take a segway tour. Although we all live or work in Mpls and three of us were born and raised here, we all learned and saw something new. Our tour took us places that we didn't even know existed. Riding the Segway was a little intimidating and there were some falls... More

Tim, Alex and Katie were our tour guided who made the trip memorable, exciting and entertaining! I was extremely nervous and a little embarrassed that the elderly folks on our tour were driving around without difficulty. Katie and Alex helped me to be more confident, distracted me with fun chit-chat and were really great to hang out with for the... More

I was in town visiting college friends who suggested this...what a blast! The instructional part of the tour (how to use a Segway) did not take up too much time and was actually entertaining as well as informative. The guides (3 of them for a group of 12, which seemed perfect) were knowledgable about the city's history, funny, patient and... More

I bought my husband a gift certificate as a birthday gift because I knew that he would think it was cool to ride around on a Segway. Little did I know that I would love this tour because of the interesting things I learned about Minneapolis! (I also felt pretty cool riding around on the Segway.) The three hour tour... More

This was so fun! We did the Magical Tour in Minneapolis. There were 4 of us in all--2 in their 50's and 2 in their 20's. My mother probably had the most trouble out of the entire group of us that went at our tour time and the guides were awesome! (There were probably 20 of us in the whole... More
