She gave us an overview of the history of Philadelphia including the founding of the city, the roles played by such figures as William Penn and Benjamin Franklin and also how and why the American colonies fought for their independence from Britain. It was just the kind of information... More

Barry was superb! Patient and knowledgeable and a force to be reckoned with on the streets of Philly! We had done the BIG BUS Tour the day before and would recommend this Segway tour and guide to anyone looking for a little more fun!

What a pity when we found out that all what we have seen is completely abandoned - house, store, gym room pet shop - except the restaurant. How come his statue is not in the museum?

My friend and I took the two hour Segway tour with Ben. This would be our third Segway tour. It is our preferred way to orient ourselves to a new city we're visiting so Ben had his work cut out for him in impressing us. He was up for the challenge: personable, knowledgeable, diligent as to our safety and that... More

This was our first trip to Philly and since we were there for a short time we wanted to see as much of the city as we could, the Segway is a great way to do that. Mike was our tour guide and he was very enthusiastic and safety conscious as we rolled through the streets of Philly. On our... More

This was our first visit to Philly and our first Segway tour. We took the longer tour, 2 hours, and we saw so much of the Philadelphia neighborhoods and attractions. We were only there of the weekend and it was a great way to take everything in. The tour starts with a safety movie and some practicing in the shop... More

My family of four grown ups, booked a full day of private tour. We were lucky to have Owen as our driver for he knew everything about Philly and how to see it. We saw places we didn't even know about and if we asked to stop to take pictures, Owen made it work. We even stopped for a quick... More

We had an amazing tour guide, Barry. He took us on a tour of Philly via Segways! How fun. He explained some of the many highlights Philly has to offer, took picures, and answered all our questions.
