This was a wonderful experience. A friend suggested it and I'm so glad I agreed. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. I went home and ordered some books on Amazon about FLW. I did take a spill because I tried to get off the Segway when I hit a curb. Once I realized I was trying to get off the Segway... More

Luke, our guide, was great. I had never been on a Segway. He was very patient and provided great instruction and encouragement. Once I was comfortable, we were ready to go. The history and the tour he provided was informative and interesting. He knows his "stuff".

We had a terrific time with Luke. We were two couples, all in our early 70's, with one real history buff. Two experienced Segway'ers, and two "newbies" Luke was knowledgeable about FLW and his houses, the history surrounding his development, and even a few "back stories" regarding his personal life. A truly fun experience. Definitely a "must do" from both... More

Riding a Segway is perhaps the best way to cover a lot of ground and experience this area of interesting and significant Frank Lloyd Wright older homes and see 10-15 of his houses that walking would make difficult. Total a bit over two hours, 7mi/10km covered, and the guide Luke is quite knowledgable about the area. Learning to ride the... More

Four of us scheduled a Segway tour of the gardens of Cantigny Park on Sunday morning. We added a reservation to the Red Oak Country Club Sunday Brunch at 11:30. Luke and Anwar had us on the Segways immediately and after a brief training session we were on our way around the grounds. We did great and felt like we... More

A fabulous way to zip through the grounds and gardens of Cantigny. Luke was not only informative but also very calm and encouraging to my wife and I as we took our first Segway tour. Our inexperience on the Segway was quickly erased as it was easy to pick up the nuances of motoring throughout the estate. We are so... More

Very interesting, for the ones that like Architecture/history is nice to go, and for the ones that likes the rides is very fun. The guide was excellent. My son is 15 for him was too much fun the ride.

What fun! Riding a Segway to tour Oak Park's Frank Lloyd Wright attractions was the perfect way to go! We saw others who chose self- and docent guided walking tours, but we were able to travel quickly and easily to each location. With the excellent training, which took just minutes (after reviewing a safety video on our own time), we... More
