Great guides, small group. Very informational, and as a long-time Chicagoan we traveled over five miles to areas I did not even know of. The only reason I did not give it a rating of 5 is because, if possible, I would recommend they taylor the tour around the very busy Chicago areas or see them from a distance. It took away from the experience every time I had to maneuver around people and catch up with our guide.

The Segway tour we took this weekend with Segway Experience of Chicago was some of the most fun I have ever had. Seriously. Like, crazy fun. Mr. H and I took Little H, and we all had a blast. We haven't stopped talking about it and now Little H wants one to ride to school.

Our guides, Ed and Jonathan, were fantastic. They were funny, knowledgable, and made sure that we were safe and comfortable on the Segway. I was a little nervous at first, but it's amazing how fast you learn to ride! After a short orientation, we were off and gliding. Riding a Segway is so much easier than I anticipated. I totally geeked out, it was so so so much fun. (Not to pump my own tires, but I think I'm really good at this Segway thing and may go pro. Anyone wanna sponsor me??)

We chose the two-hour Park Glide Tour. Ed and Jon took us to Grant Park, Buckingham Fountain, Soldier Field, Museum Campus, and along the Lakeside Bike Path. The time flew by and we were so bummed when the tour was over. Our goal is to take each of the tours that they offer, especially the upcoming Holiday Lights Tour (perfect for Christmas freaks like me).

I strongly recommend Segway Experience of Chicago to everyone, especially people who like having awesome fun. And if you don't like having fun, try it anyway. You may just end up being a better person after.

Great Segway experience. More about seeing the sites than hearing a boring monologue. Eric and Tim were awesome.

Damien, our guide, took us out and about after giving the best lesson on how to ride the Segway! He was fun and informative! As a senior citizen, I was sure that I couldn't do this tour, but Damien made it so easy and I was not only riding but comfortable in just a couple of minutes!
