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

We saw the flier for this at the Mall of America so my wife checked it out and it looked cool so we figured why not? It's a bit pricey but for the length of time you go out, it's not bad. Our tour was about 2.5 hours, including the training. Learning the Segways was a breeze, and even though... More

I have done the history tour many times and loved it but this time I wanted longer rides. The evening ride to the Minneapolis' Sculpture Garden is a fabulous way to spend a summer evening in Minneapolis. The Twins had played in the afternoon so we were able to go right up to Gate 34 and see all the sculptures... More

My 13 year old son and I have never been on a Segway so we were a little scared to try this. Segways are completely easy to figure out and operate and a fantastic way to explore the city and learn some history. We would do this again in a heartbeat! If you have bad knees like me, I recommend... More

My husband and I totally enjoyed our Segway tour of the riverfront of Minneapolis. The guides were very good at teaching how to use the Segway. At first, I didn't think I would we able to manage it but they encouraged me to continue to practice and if I did not feel comfortable I would not be charged. Well, sure... More

My son and I really enjoyed this tour. It was first time on Segways for both of us but the training was excellent and we were feeling comfortable in no time. Our guide, Greg shared the city's history in an engaging way and made the whole trip fun and memorable. I loved the water and cookie break. It was good... More

We were a bit nervous but the super friendly and helpful guides had us up and moving in a couple of minutes! Greg was a great tour guide, stopping along key points on our route and explaining the history of Minneapolis. We road for hours and they were taking pictures of us (free online!) We felt it was an excellent... More

Our group of five decided to "play tourist" and take a segway tour. Although we all live or work in Mpls and three of us were born and raised here, we all learned and saw something new. Our tour took us places that we didn't even know existed. Riding the Segway was a little intimidating and there were some falls... More
