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

I had a blast on this tour! I was a little nervous about operating a Segway but quickly got the hang of it thanks to the awesome staff. Ben was very kind and helpful, and also had sweet hair. Wish I could go back every day!

We had a most awesome time. With the challenge of finding something to do with my (Mick) friends ( Dave and Carmela) who came to visit me from Adelaide South Australia, and the weather risk in Minnesota in September, I came up with the idea of Segway Tour. I wasn't sure what to expect, loss of limb, run over by... More

My husband and I took another couple with us on the tour -- we all thought it would be fun, but it was WAY more fun than that! The staff is welcoming and informative -- they help you get the hang of riding a Segway easily and safely (even people in the group who were nervous to begin with got... More

This was on our vacation bucket list and we had an absolute blast with the Segway . I can't say enough about the staff. They were fun, truly concerned about our safety and very knowledgeable about the city. The starting point was just a little difficult to find but by following their directions we did get to the start just... More

I'm FROM Minneapolis and I learned a ton about Minneapolis history and it's parks. Our guides Greg and Dave were awesome - thanks guys! Segways were fun and easier to use than I thought. It was great team building for me and my work colleagues and I will come back with family or friends.

A great way to get a flavour if the city, learn some of its history and have great fun on a Segway at the same time. Even if you've never been on one, it is so easy to learn and off you go. I would recommend it to anyone.

We had people who had lived in Minneapolis for a few months on the tour and they were surprised at some of the places that we went. The tour was a good mix of scenic and historic spots and was a great way to learn a lot about Minneapolis. We were on a college trip to see University of Minnesota,... More
