I took the segway tour around Philadelphia with my father, and it was the perfect way to spend the afternoon together. We actually arrived about 20 minutes late due to an accident and the subsequent traffic, but Rasa was very accommodating. As first-time segway riders, we learned how to operate the segways, and she waited until we were comfortable with... More

I'd wanted to ride on a segway for a long time and I did it for a first time with DeTours. Great service, friendly, accesible. It was a sunday and eventhogh nobody else has booked, they still held the tour for me. Ask for Mike, he was a great guide: fun and knowledable.

I've been to Philly many times to visit our daughter but this was the first time we did a segway tour in Philly. Had a wonderful time (even though the temp was at about 32-34 degrees) and our guide Mike was terrific. Would have been even more fun had it not been so cold. But regardless, I would highly recommend... More

I've done Segway tours in Chicago & Salem, MA, but my father's always wanted to try one. So I bought 2 tours through Living Social and we had a blast! Our guide, Mike, was great from beginning to end too. Even though we live just 5 miles over the bridge in NJ, and have spent endless hours walking & exploring... More

We are difficult to please New Yorkers who have been out on many Segway tours in the past. This was easily one of the best. We took the hour and a half tour as we were fearful the 3 hour trip might be too long. The time frame was just right. Our guide memorized everyone's names right away, was extremely... More

We had an incredible experience on our Segway tour through Philly. Our tour guide Mike made the experience both educational, fun and humorous! Even though you think you think you know a city, experiencing it on a Segway shows it in a whole new light!

We do have a strict policy it is clearly... More

We enjoyed our 90-min segway tour even more than we expected. It was easy and fun, and our guide, Mike, couldn't have been better. Will be looking into the cheesesteak segway tour next. This is a "must-do".

My husband and I were very glad we chose to do this one-of-a-kind 3 hour tour. We'd never been to Philadelphia or ridden a Segway before. We had a great tour of the city - the kind that let us see all it has to offer from a drive-by perspective. Our tour guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable and personable. It... More
