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.

We chose this activity to show off Minneapolis to a first time visitor. It was a fun, novel activity that offered a great taste of Minneapolis history and beautiful scenery. I think we were slightly nervous at the beginning- not sure how hard it would be to balance/steer etc. The staff did a great job of teaching everyone how to... More

We had a great tour with Greg (our main tour guide) and Hannah, April and Marcella today. I was a bit apprehensive at the beginning but gained confidence in large part because the guides were so clearly intent on helping anyone who was having a difficult time handling their Segway. I felt very comfortable within 30 minutes. Greg was an... More

I took my husband on the tour for his birthday. We loved it. It was easy to learn how to work the Segway and they were fun to ride. We learned a lot from our tour guide Michael about the history of the city and area. We went to the stone arch bridge, Nicollet island, boom island and mill city... More

At the time of my tour, the segways were of the old generation, i.e. more difficult to balance. After a very short explanation, I did not feel comfortable and cancelled my tour. However, one month later, I did the tour in Paris where they had newer models and took more time to make sure every one felt comfortable and ready... More

We surprised our dad with a tour for father's day and we all had a blast! It sounds kind if lame but it was the exact opposite. The price is steep but it's worth it and can't wait to try a different tour next time. They give you coupons at the end for your next visit.

A must do activity. Anybody can learn to ride a Segway in a minute if you can stand on your feet. Carmin and April were great. Lot's of fun facts along the way.

This tour is a great way to see Minneapolis, learn a bunch of history about the city and riding the Segway is really fun. Shaina is the best guide!

My wife and kids took me the Magical History Tour for a Father's Day outing, and it was a blast! Carmen and her crew were very engaging and helpful, even providing one-to-one attention to my mom (71 years young) throughout the tour. I highly recommend this for any adventure-seeking families looking to do something unique. The historical information is great,... More

A must do!!! We have never been on a segway before and my husband was a little nervous about it. That being said we had a great time. Our tour guides Greg, Shaina, Paul and Jenna were all great, very friendly and helpful. The gave a little instruction session prior to our tour so we felt very comfortable before we... More

Our 3 hour tour was excellent. Carmen and Alexa were great guides, Carmen was very knowledgeable of the history of downtown, and somewhat humorous! Bring your camera for some cool river photos. We finished our day with burgers and drinks just a few hundred feet from the drop off location. Very recommended.
