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.

The price is high, but worth it! I live in Minneapolis and still had a blast seeing the sights and riding the segways. Lindsey was an awesome tour guide. Very informative and funny personality.

The tour focuses on the Mississippi River and the older parts of Minneapolis that border the river. Our guides were knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. Doing the tour aboard Segways added to the fun and allowed us to cover far more ground than a walking tour and to go places where a bus could not take you. Don't be intimidated about... More

My husband and I took our daughter (15) and her friend (15) to Minneapolis for a quick 4 day get-away. We found the Magical History Tour on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Best decision we made the entire trip. So much fun! We were beginners, but the instructors were helpful and patient. They had us zipping... More

This an awesome way to start a visit to Minneapolis learning how it started. The staff was fabulous, knowledgeable, and a whole lot of fun. I would say this was my favorite thing I did during my visit to Minneapolis. Wish I had been able to take all of the tours this company offers. A+

We did the Magical History Tour and everyone in our party LOVED IT! I have done this tour before, and was not bored at all the second time. It is a great way to do a tour (segways) avoiding traffic and taking beautiful bike paths through multiple areas of Minneapolis. We stopped several times to listen to the history of... More

Four of us came to Minneapolis to see the city. When I told everyone that I booked this tour they all said "What are you nuts!" As we were watching the demonstration everyone said the same thing. However, after only 5 minutes of training everyone was raring to go! The weather was perfect and we could not have been Happier... More

My friend Jon and I went yesterday and had a terrific experience. Michael, John, Hanna and _____ took wonderful care of us. The sights were beautiful, the info entertaining and educational, and it was obvious that FUN was their #1 objective. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
