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 Segway tour was great. Spent 15-20 learning how to use the machine (very easy) and the rest of the time enjoying the tour, the ride, the friendship , and learning a lot about Minneapolis, even though I am a native Minneapolitan!!!

The Minneapolis Segway tour was a neat way to see the area and learn about history of Minneapolis. It took a little effort to get comfortable on the Segway - but once that was mastered, it was kind of fun!!

We took the segway tour as a work team building event. This is the first work event I have attended where every single person remarked how much fun they had. They guides were very patient as we learned how to handle the segways. They took some getting used to but still fun (the segways not the guides). Wear flat and... More

I didn't think I would like this or even be able to do it. Boy was I wrong! I loved every second. Talk about being a confidence builder for a 64 year old woman who doesn't get enough exercise. For me, it was almost like my old days skiing--without the cold! Just gliding along almost effortlessly. Our guides (Jenna, Megan,... More

Segways are an awesome way to tour a city--they're not only fun and easy to learn but offer an up-close-and-personal view of the sights. Our guides Will and Hannah were funny, knowledgeable, and high-energy. Everyone in the group had a fantastic time and learned a lot, too. Highly recommend!!! :)

This was fabulous! Informative! The tour guides are skilled and helpful with the Segways ! Don't miss this! The guides have the photo locations as stops along the way. The three hour tour price includes a refreshment break and complimentary tickets to the Old Mill Museum.

Our family registered for the tour and completely enjoyed this activity. They go though the safety video and give the group time to get familiar with riding a Segway before beginning the tour. Our guides were knowledgable on Minneapolis history. They made stops and shared historic events including the "Niagra Falls", the Mill ruins and numerous buildings, bridges of interest.... More
