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.
Our Segway tour was great - I was worried the teenage girls would think it wasn't cool to be out with their parents on a tour but everyone had a great time - Barry our guide was great! Would do it again - preferably in warmer weather!
My wife and I had a great experience,our guide, Owen, was filled with joy of his job and knowledge of his city. He had so much trivia about the area and his ability to keep us all hungering for more. We did the 2 hour tour and it was filled with a lot of information about the history and about up coming events. We would gladly do this Segway tour again and again.
