I hadn't been on a Segway before this tour but these guys made it EASY!
I felt comfortable on the machine within 5 minutes and they're thorough with training & safety stuff.
The 2.5 hr tour was the highlight of my Chicago trip and is great for solo travelers.
The tour guide Scott clearly knew what he was talking about and made it an enjoyable experience.
I'd highly recommend this company to anybody visiting to Chicago - young or old!
Take advantage of their early bird price and book online a couple days ahead.
All of the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

My advice is try to stay close to the tour guide, especially if you haven't been to Chicago before and want to hear his description of the sights. The guide should almost have a megaphone or speaker of some sort so that everybody can hear well.

I read several reviews on segway tours in Chicago, and Absolutely Chicago Segway Tours had the best reviews, hands down, so we booked it. We had a BLAST with Scott on the Saturday morning Arts and Architecture Tour. Our group of 4 had never ridden before, but Scott and other instructors provided clear instructions and allowed us to practice before heading out onto the streets. Scott was very knowledgeable about the city and a wonderful guide. I ABSOLUTELY recommend Absolutely Chicago Segway Tours!

We had a wonderful segway tour with Clancy with the focus on the run of learing to ride, which fit well into our teenage family group. We had an exclusive tour, which was great.
Absolute Segway was flexible to have a tour that fit our needs and it was less expansive than we thought. The only minus is that the office in the middle of a building lot right now.

My Niece wanted to go to Chicago for her birthday, she's a young teen. She wanted to go to Great America and see downtown. Knowing she isn't into your typical tourism traps, I booked the Haunted Segway Tour. What a blast. The training video was funny, but I found myself a little hesitant after watching what could happen. The crew made sure everyone was comfortable before we left the site. It only took a couple spins around the lot and the fear had vanished. Dustin our guide was fun and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour, I want to return to take other tours with this company.

This was the very best thing we've done on more than a dozen trips to Chicago. Our tour guide Britney was smart, well-informed, safety-conscious and yet fun. We did the architectural tour on a Sunday morning and it was wonderful.
