Glide around on our Chicago Segway Tour.

Join us for a fun three-hour tour through the Windy City on our best-selling Chicago Segway Tour! This tour offers a perfect orientation, a fun and informative local guide, and a unique way to effortlessly see the main highlights of Chicago. Each tour begins with an in-depth introduction to riding the Segways, so no need to worry if you've never ridden one before! Your guide will ensure that everyone is comfortable before you take to the streets together. We limit our groups to eight guests maximum to ensure a safe and personal experience.

Covering more ground than you ever could on foot, you'll glide to top Chicago highlights from Grant Park, the Lake Michigan Lakefront, Buckingham Fountain, Solider Field and much more! Your guide will fill you in on interesting, not dull or monotonous stories about the history and lesser-known facts about Chicago. Regardless if you're visiting the Windy City for the first time or even if you're a local, we're positive you'll learn something new about our beloved city, all while having a ton of fun. We cruise through the famous Museum Campus area which has one of the best views of the iconic Chicago skyline in addition to being home to three of Chicago's most popular museums: the Field Museum of Natural History, the Adler Planetarium, and the John G. Shedd Aquarium. While it's worth spending a few hours at each massive museum, you'll be able to ask your guide their top tips for maximizing your time based on your personal interests. 

As you enjoy the sites, your guide will be able to answer any and all questions you may have about Chicago, from its fascinating history, our world-class architecture, to tips where to go out to eat. Ride with us and experience the best of Chicago!

    Your tour will start promptly at the scheduled time, therefore please arrive 15 minutes prior to tou departure time in order to complete the necessary paperwork. Please be aware that we have multiple tours departing throughout the day, therefore if you arrive more than 30 minutes early we may still be working with other guests.

There is also street parking available near our office, but be sure to check the meters as they may restrict the parking time to 2 hours. Or, they may not allow parking during certain hours. Though parking is available, we always encourage our guests to use the METRO to avoid street closures, heavy traffic and difficulty finding parking.
