About Vamos! Lion Chariot
Our Lion Chariot pedicabs offer an enjoyable way to see Happy Valley. We typically start our tours at The Penn State Arboretum, followed by a glide through campus - with views of The Lion Shrine, Beaver stadium, Creamery, Old Main and much more ! Sit back, relax and allow our drivers to share some Blue & White pride with you. Our tours are appropriate for all ages and are especially nice for those prone to tired legs. We do not have a physical storefront, but we encourage you to call or email us to make a reservation for your personalized Penn State campus tour!

We were at Penn State for my son's graduation and beside watching him walk, had 2 goals: get good pics and entertain grandma and grandpa, who'd driven from FL. Friday's forecast was for rain so the Vamos! crew suggested we go Thursday evening - the same time we'd booked a photographer. In a quick texted collaboration, we brought 3 chariots, 1 photographer (on his bike) and 8 of us together from 5pm - 7pm for a Campus Tour/Photo Shoot safari. This was our first PSU graduation and it was a zoo. A gazzillion families and photographers swarming the campus standing on hour-long lines for better photo opps. Had we not had our 'Safari Team' co-strategizing on where and when to go, it would have been a stress-filled mess. Instead they made the best of it with great pics and a great tour. The capper was the Vamos! crew dropping the entire party off right in front of our 7:30 dinner reservation. Huge thank-you's to Todd and his buds at Vamos! and David Abruzzese Photography.

What a great experience! We chose the 90 minute tour and we're glad we did. We covered more ground than we could have on foot and learned so much about the campus and Penn State history. We were even able to stop along the way to get pictures and walk inside the HUB. Todd met us at the creamery on schedule, the chariot was clean and comfortable; Todd's enthusiasm for and knowledge of Penn State was a highlight of our State College visit.

We had a wonderful tour of the PSU campus with Todd. He was on time, courteous and really knowledgeable about the school and campus. He made sure we were able to hear him as he pedaled around the entire area. We were there to visit a student and she was very impressed by what we learned. Riding in the "chariot" was a great way to see everything easily.He even gave us a bunch of suggestions to do after we left him. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to see Penn State.

Our son didn’t have the benefit to tour Penn State’s campus because of Covid. We decided to book a pedicab to get a feel before we moved him in. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION WE MADE! Todd was incredibly knowledgeable about the campus and it’s rich history! He made several stops to allow photo ops and opportunities to ask questions along the way. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and recommend it to new students and their families!
