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.

Greg was our guide and he gave us a very personal yet professional experience. The area around Mississippi is really nice and the history around it is quite interesting.... More

I have lived in Minneapolis all my life, my wife got this for our anniversary, on top of the Segway's being fun, the tour being something every Minnesotean should take, the tour guides made it an enjoyable experience for us all! Will do again!

We did a 'Magical HistoryTour' today....super fun, well organized and very informative. I'm 63 yrs old and born/raised in Mpls/suburbs all my life. Still learned lots of stuff. The bonus....the Segway is very easy to operate.

This is the second time we've done a segway tour & it never gets old! You could be looking at dirt & riding a segway would be fun :) They are very easy to use & they show you a quick video & give you a quick "lesson" before you're off. Over all the tour was good, nice guides, you... More

Had a real fun time. The leader was great and gave great explanations about the History we saw and described how things had changed over time both long term and over the last 30-40 years ago. Would definitely recommend it to someone from outside of the Twin Cities or State to get a flavor of how Mlps has changed to... More

I was very tentative about the trip but we all had a blast. They do a great job in quickly teaching you the basics of the Segway. Highly recommend

It was a great tour along the river with a smattering of history at every stop. Very informative and entertaining. As a local, it is always good to get more information about the area I live in and there's really no better way to than by segway! Driving a segway is a lot harder than it looks. Just when I...

I took this tour with my husband and another couple while visiting the Twin Cities for baseball and football games. (We are all in our mid to late 50's.) We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The segways were a blast to ride (and very easy to master)! We also enjoyed the interesting, informative, and entertaining tour! I would not hesitate... More
