Description:

Mobile Entertainment LLC was the first Segway tour operator in the country...

Mobile Entertainment LLC was the first Segway tour operator in the country when Segway launched in 2003. 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.

I definitely had a blast. I was traveling to Minnesota for work and was looking for something to do. I was glad that I went on this tour. Although it was my first time on a segway, but the staff made it very easy to learn. Within minutes, I was well on my way. If it's your first time through... More

We live in MN and learned a lot about Minneapolis. Great outing for locals and out of state tourists! The staff make sure you know how to safety ride a Segway, but they are easy. And fun!

Safety is a key component to the enjoyment of the Segway experience. After learning to operate a Segway the group embarked with several stops where the history of that area was explained. The group was carefully supervised with staff following and photographing the riders all along the way. Everyone agreed it was exceptionally enjoyable.

Went on the last tour of the season with Lindsey and Frank on Sunday. We had a blast! They were so much fun! I had never been on a Segway before (as evidenced by my one minor crash) but they made sure everyone was comfortable. They kept the jokes going the entire three hours and everyone in our group, aged... More

We took a morning tour last weekend. Our tour guides, Jim and Frank knew so much history of the city. Best Birthday Weekend Fun! Will do the Saint Paul Tour next summer.

The Segways are very easy to learn to ride. You'll be good to go in a few minutes. The tour was pretty long so you realy get your monies worth.

Despite my initial concerns about riding a Segway (Will I fall off? Will I look silly?) I had a wonderful time coasting along the riverfront, across bridges and through leafy parks on the Magical History Tour of Minneapolis. We managed to cover much more, up close than we would have on foot or by bus - it felt like cycling... More

On a recent visit to Minneapolis my sister treated us to a Segway tour, what a wonderful family outing. Kept everyone's interest, got us outdoors doing something physical that all ages could enjoy (73 to 14) and taught us about the history of our city. Even served us cookies! Staff friendly and knowledgeable; made our day fun for all.

This was our first time on segways and it was so much fun! Perfect way to see a lot of the sights and learn some of the local history. I am already looking forward to being back on a Segway and hopefully back in Minneapolis one day.

I have been to lot of big cities and was expecting this tour to be ok. But to my surprise I enjoyed the tour immensely. I guess it could be because I was doing the Segway for the first time. It took us about 10 mins to get comfortable and the guide where really patient and supportive. Our guide Will... More
