Segway tour of Philadelphia for one hour. Barry was our guide and was very attentive guiding our group who were all first time segway riders. Initially nervous,we were soon riding along confidently listening to Barry's expert information on the city. A great way to get around and would definitely recommend anyone to give it a go. A great experience and... More

Neither of us had ever been on a Segway before this tour. The instructional video made me a little nervous, but after our instructor and guide, Barry the Papa Duck, showed us how to work with gravity, we were good to go. We took the 1-hour tour, which ended up being just enough and we saw lots of great stuff.... More

Four colleagues from around the world spent the morning with Ben on Saturday learning about Philly. The Segways were easy to learn to use and Ben did a great job on the tour keeping us safe and giving us lots of notice if we were headed for a bump. Ben is clearly passionate about this City and its history. We... More

My son and I were in Philly for the Billy Joel concert on July 9th, and we had some spare time. When we walked by the Awfully Nice Tours hub at Arch Street, we decided to go in for some advice what to do. Andy and the team proved to be of great help. They pointed out the best spots... More

I just love Segway tours. We took this tour with our family and everybody loved it. Our host Barry was great and driving a Segway it so much fun. You see much more than walking as well (and much more during this hot summer). Highly recommended.

Ben was an outstanding tour guide--we had a great time with great equipment! The tour only lasted an hour, but we still got to see a lot of Philadelphia and hear lots of history. We felt safe and secure and very well prepared. Ben watched out for each of us and he was very friendly, too! We had a good... More

After a video and a quick lesson, we were confident that we would have a great Segway adventure. Barry was our guide and did a great job navigating the streets and sidewalks while providing many fun facts about Philadelphia. It was our first time on a Segway, and we quickly felt comfortable. It was over 95 degrees, but did not... More

Ben was my guide. He was the best! He knew all the spots to see and succinctly explained historical relevance. He knew the secret stories about places, and gave his insight as to modern relevance. My tour was a 2-hour tour, and was just the right length of time to see all the historical landmarks I wanted to see. Ben... More
