The Segway Personal Transporter(tm) is environmentally-friendly, self-balancing, extremely easy to operate, and lots of fun! You’ll be an expert after 10 minutes of free training. We don’t just visit the battlefield sites. All tours are directed by a Licensed Battlefield Guide (recorded or in person) who will dramatically recount the events of the battle, the military blunders, and the heroic defenses that characterize this pivotal battle. If you aren't interested in the history, we also offer escorted Segway rides. Or try our new indoor Segway obstacle course! « less

I booked a segway tour with my 14 year old son. Jessie and Andrew were great instructors. They were very patient with the both of us. We were newbies at the whole segway thing. Jessie was a great tour guide. Highly recommend! Thanks for a great day!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with SegTours of Gettysburg on April 4, 2014. The tour was very educational and fun. Our guide, Bob, is a Civil War historian and collector. In addition to the wonderful information on the National Park Service recorded tape, Bob shared with us other interesting perspectives and tidbits while outside the National Park.... More

The Segway Tour earns the top ranking from me. I was the only rider on my tour of the Eastern battlefield and I wanted a tour guide instead of the recording so I paid a little extra. It was money well spent. Les was the licensed guide and he couldn't not have been nicer or more well versed on the... More

Segway tours offers a 3 hour package and takes in approximately 10 miles through the battlefields of Gettysburg. You have a guide and licensed narrator on the audio, this is expertly done, very informative and you really get a feel for what happened there. We are seniors and the segway is very easy to ride and a fun way to... More

We drove to Gettysburg from Hershey for the day to specifically do this highly rated tour. We arrived at their location at about 10:30 on Thursday, March 27th. It was a cold but clear and sunny day. There was a sign in the window that read something like "IF IT IS DAYLIGHT WE ARE OPEN. IF THE DOORS ARE LOCKED... More

I understand that you're angry but I think it is safe to say that we wouldn't have the highest rated tour in Gettysburg if we were "dishonest and misleading." Still, we aren't above making mistakes occasionally and in this case the sign was mistakenly left on the door from the previous day. I apologize for the extent to which it... More

I must say I was a little apprehensive because I have never rode on a Segway before, but this place made it easy! They showed us how to ride and we were allowed to practice before we took off. The ride was fun and informative. They even gave us a little snack! I would definitely recommend this!

This is an excellent way to see the battlefield. The Segways are a blast! We were able to be outdoors the entire time and covered an amazing amount of ground effortlessly. Would recommend a guided tour with a licenced guide. It was more than worth the additional $15/person. Our guide, Les Fowler, provided a lively and most informative commentary throughout... More

We had an opportunity be back in Gettysburg for the 150th Gettysburg Address. We came back to do some 'battlefield touring'. My wife grew up in Gettysburg and was intimately familiar with the battlefields. Both of us are Civil War buffs. On a whim this morning, I called the Segway Agency and was told that they didn't have any planned... More

Only have a few hours to visit the Gettysburg battlefield? Then Segway Tours is a great option! Segway PTs are a wonderful, intimate way to see either the Eastern or Western battlefields. We chose to add on a Licensed Battlefield Guide (extra $) and it was worth every penny! The tour company does a fabulous job of introducing the group... More
