Overview:

Glide around the streets of Chicago on a 3-hour Segway tour. Zip past the cascading fountains of Millenium Park and swoop through Grant Park’s manicured gardens. See Chicago’s towering skyline, the Chicago Lakefront, and much more from your segway.

Description:

Glide around the streets and parks of Chicago on a leisurely 3-hour guided Segway tour. Perfect for Chicago newbies and Windy City veterans alike, the tour uncovers quirky facts about one of America’s most energetic destinations.

Among the sites you will see, the Museum Campus complex will be a major highlight. Home of the Field Museum and Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Revival style building contains more than 21 million anthropological specimens. Glide over to Adler Planetarium, the first planetarium built in the western hemisphere. Admire the Shedd Aquarium, the largest indoor aquarium in America when it first opened in 1929.

You will also go to 2 of Chicago’s famous parks. See cascading waterfalls and the Cloud Gate sculpture at Millennium Park and tour some of Grant Park’s manicured 319 acres. Situated along the city’s lakefront, and referred to as Chicago’s “front yard,” the park will reward you with expansive views of the sea-like Lake Michigan.

  • Rating: 5 “A great way to see the city in a short amount of time!”

    Reviewed by Camille from Spokane, United States on September 8, 2011 The guide was knowledgable and focused on ensuring we could see as much of the city in our short period of time. The equipment was very easy to use and space was limited in each group to have a more intimate outing.


  • Rating: 5 “FABULOUS TOUR & GUIDE! WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!”

    Reviewed by Rebecca from Broken Arrow, United States on September 3, 2011 Tommy was a fabulous guide! My husband and I took the 3-hour tour which covered 13 miles in Chicago! It allowed us to see parts of Chicago we were not able to cover on foot. He was so nice and allowed several stops to take photos and stretch your legs. It was my first time on a segway, and it was so much fun! I would recommend this to anyone visiting Chi-Town!


  • Rating: 5 “So much fun on a Segway!”

    Reviewed by Ashley from Shepperton, United Kingdom on August 24, 2011 We did the Segway tour on our first morning in Chicago (having booked in advance online) and loved every minute of the 3 hours! We covered so much ground on the segway, way more than we would have ever covered by foot. The tour took us all the way along the lake front, stopping at key places along the way to be told bits of interesting information.
    Riding the segway itself was great fun and so easy to do. Whizzing along the streets of Chicago in the sunshine on a segway is highly recommended - so much more fun than the usual bus tours!


  • Rating: 5 “extraordinarily fun and efficient way to see chicago with family”

    Reviewed by Gary from chappaqua, United States on August 22, 2011 this was the highlight of my long weekend in chicago with my family. You get to see so much in such a short period of time, while having the excitement of riding on a segway! It was extremely easy to use as well, and the small size of city segway's touring groups helped to enhance the entire experience


  • Rating: 5 “A great deal of fun, especially if you've never ridden a Segway before”

    Reviewed by Carl from New York, United States on August 19, 2011 I wasn't sure that the tour would be worth the cost, but I do not regret a penny. Of course, it's not really a tour of Chicago, but there is extensive public park land near the lake and some stunning views. Our guide was as informative as she needed to be, but if your goal is information, you should probably take another tour. If your goal is fun in one of the most photogenic cities in the country, this tour s for you. Three hours went by in nothing flat.


  • Rating: 5 “A great way to see chicago”
