The best part of the tour experience is definitely the scenic routes the tour guide took us to see. This is a great experience as you get to tour the beloved city of Chicago while also learning about the history of some of the buildings standing tall all while gliding through the streets on a fun Segway ride. We had the opportunity to have Shawn as our tour guide who I would highly recommend requesting as your tour guide as he is a very social and outgoing fun person to vibe with. Shawn was very knowledgable of the history of the city and definitely makes it a fun and memorable experience. Highly recommend this underrated tourist attraction to anyone visiting the city and to anyone interested in learning more about the beautiful city of Chicago.

We had an amazing time. Our tour guide, Jen, was very knowledgeable and fun! She took time to answer our questions along the tour, made sure we were comfortable, and took some great pictures of my family with the cityscapes as background. Highly recommend!

This was a family highlight for sure! Our teen children loved riding the segways, and the tour gave us a great overview of things to see and do on our first day in Chicago. Sarah H was an excellent tour guide, super energetic and knowledgable. She made the whole trip very easy from booking to riding. We felt very safe, relaxed and comfortable during our entire experience. I’m not a big spender, but this was worth every penny!!!!

My husband and I took this tour and had a blast! Tammy was absolutely fabulous! She was knowledgeable and funny and bubbly and so wonderful to spend the afternoon with. We enjoyed the information she shared and the jokes that went along with it. We recommend this tour for everyone! It was an exciting and beautiful way to see some of the highlights of Chicago. We got some awesome pictures of the skyline too!

A delightful tour along the lakefront and through a beautiful park: the lake, the fountains, the gorgeous Chicago skyline... a beautiful experience. The Segway is intuitive and easy to learn. This was my second adventure on a Segway and I’m convinced that it is the best way to enjoy a tour “up close and personal.” The tour slowly unrolls as you glide along at a jogger’s pace. A great experience.

No better way to feel the city. The staff is precious. Our guide (wish I could remember her name) was so knowledgeable. As a Chicago native I was thrilled at her grasp of the history of the history. This was my 3rd Segway tour. This company was the absolute best. Fantastic way to entertain out of towners

This was so much fun and our guide Cari was really engaging. A must do activity to see Chicago. My 16 y/o son and I had never been on a Segway before but was really easy to get the hang of. Thanks for a great adventure!!

My family and I had an excellent guide, Maggie. She was very patient with my Segway driving capabilities. Very pleasant and informative guide. The places we visited with Segway were perfect. The family wanted to ride Segways another hour.

We always try and do a segway tour whenever we travel and having visited Chicago last summer and done nearly every type of tour we decided to do the segway this time. It was just the best way to see the city. AJ, our guide, was brilliant and entertaining and we learnt loads of new bits about Chicago that we hadn't heard before. We also saw new parts that we hadn't seen before along with all of our favourite places. If you have kids who normally find tours boring, they won't at all on a segway tour. Would highly recommend.
