What You Can Expect
1-hr Segway Tour
See more than 15 Philadelphia attractions on this loop! This introduction to major city sights takes you through the Historic District and to Penn's Landing and the Delaware River via Welcome Park. Cruise along the river and past historic homes. Continue past the bustling Italian Market with beautiful murals painted on several buildings, and admire the lively mosaics of Magic Gardens on South Street. Along your journey, witness several important historical sights including the First Bank of the United States and several old churches where William Penn developed his 'freedom of worship' philosophy.
2-hr Segway Tour
Extend your Segway adventure, passing by Elfreth's Alley and the Betsy Ross House. Admire Independence Hall en route to Society Hill, where you can marvel at the stately homes. Continue over Avenue of the Arts to Rittenhouse Square before winding through the Fitler Square neighborhood. From there, make your way along the Schuylkill River en route to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where you can see the statue of Rocky Balboa at the bottom of the famous steps he ran up in the 1976 blockbuster movie Rocky. Next, cruise on to Benjamin Franklin Parkway to see the 'Thinker' statue in the outdoor sculpture garden of the Rodin Museum. Head through some of the city's back streets to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and then through Chinatown to end your tour.
The segway is so much fun, and the tour was awesome. Barry, the tour guide, was super knowledgeable and told us new stories about our hometown. The segway becomes intuitive after about 5 minutes and then you're off, going all over the city. I asked another patron if this was what skiing felt like, and they said no, this is much better than skiiing.
I want to go again, and I want to gift tours to all my friends.
Great experience touring the highlights of Philly combined with the fun of riding a Segway! Our tour guide Mike was outstanding! A fun way to learn about the city and all there is to see and do in Philly!
