“Random, ridiculous, and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I took this tour bought via groupon mostly out of an impulse purchase. I live in chicago, and had seen everything on this tour before. However, the guide was very funny and informative, the segways were actually a really fun way of seeing the city, and we covered an entire days worth of ground in just a few hours. I would do it again

“Segway tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We decided to try Segways for the first time and used this company more by chance than anything. But our luck held and we had a thoroughly enjoyable few hours led by our guide Andrew. His method of showing us how to move and control the machines was pitched absolutely right for each individual in the group and had us all up and running after just a few minutes instruction. We then toured down Millennium Park and around Soldier Field, then up to the Art Institute and back to base. A very enjoyable couple of hours. Highly recommended.

“A great way to see a large part of a new city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We do love a Segway tour to see a new place. We enjoyed this one too. We got to see a huge part of the waterfront and the skyline. We covered lots of ground and segways are such fun! If there is a Segway tour on offer In a city we are visiting for the first time, we will take it.
Take the family, do some minimal history and enjoy the fun times you will have whizzing around monuments ( not an open top bus in sight!)
Thanks Eric & john.

“Segway for our whole family.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We chose these folks because they allow 12 year olds to operate the Segway. The tour was in the Chicago Waterfront/ museum district and lasted a full 2 hours. My GPS said we covered 7 km. The learning period required was a matter of a couple of minutes with the guides' personal assistance. This followed a great instruction video that covered the safety features of the device.
We all wore reflective yellow vests, and I never saw other groups using these...I think it is a great safety feature, as is the guide system with one employee leading and one following.

Our children in particular enjoyed the Segway, and compared it to carving turns on skis.

When we visit Chicago again we will use this company again, and take a different tour of the city.
I felt this was fantastic value for the money!

“Spectacular Segway!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We began a birthday celebration with a spectacular two hour Segway tour of Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park, the Museum Campus and Michigan Avenue. Brian was a great guide, informative, fun...and made sure before we got started we were all comfortable with this new experience of riding on a Segway.
