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 took The Magical History Tour in October. We've been visiting Minneapolis for several years, and have toured many of its museums, but this was the most enjoyable way we've learned about several historical sites around downtown and Nicolette Island. The head tour guide was interesting and informative. The other tour guides taught us to ride our Segways safely and... More

Everyone was super friendly (Ben, Ian, etc), and the Segways were easy to learn. Everyone is a little wobbly for the first minute or 2, but after that, it becomes like second nature, and it's easy and fun to get around on them. The tour itself was 3 hours or so, and i honestly could've spent twice that amount of... More

We had such a wonderful time on our Segway tour yesterday!! Even though the weather was less then desirable, we made the best of it and our guides Chris, Denny and Lacey were wonderful at keeping us laughing. We did this outing to celebrate 2 wedding anniversary's and a 40th Birthday for the month of October. As Minnesota residents I... More

This is a fun and easy way to ride a segway if you've always wanted to do it. I found it easy to learn, but an older woman in our group wasn't paying attention and fell over. She's fine. The tour guide was excellent. Even though I've lived here for many years, he told me many things I did not... More

We decided to make it a Ladies Day outing in our own home town as we had such a positive experience on a Segway tour in Austin, TX. What a delightful afternoon on the Magical History Tour of downtown Minneapolis! Our tour guide, Chris, shared many fun facts about Minneapolis. I learned that WCCO ( a long time established local...

I am a lifelong Minnesotan and I learned some things! At first I was not sure about riding a segway but after a few minutes it was pretty simple. The fall colors were out and the weather perfect. I think we saw a dozen weddings on our tour. If you are on the fence about doing this please consider this... More

As a Minneapolis resident, I was pleasantly surprised by all the interesting facts I learned from our tour guide, Chris. Chris also proved to be quite humorous and was incredibly safety-conscious. Overall, very entertaining and fun, would do again despite losing some dignity.

Ben, Riley and Katherine were excellent tour guides. My husband and I have taken several Segway tours and found this one especially enjoyable. The educational information was great. The group of 7 we were with, many quite nervous, found it easy enough and at the end all were greatful that they had joined us. Thanks all!

It was fun to learn how to use a Segway, explore parts of Minneapolis I'd never seen, and learn about the history of the city. Chris, Riley and the rest of the crew did a great job. Recommended!

My first time on a Segway and so much fun! Easy to learn and use. Chris was our tour guide and did an awesome job guiding us and giving history. I grew up in the Twin Cities and still learned so much fascinating history and cruised through parts of Minneapolis I had never been. Thanks to Chris, Emma, and Unique... More
