Tammy was a wonderful guide! I was nervous because I had never done anything like this before but she was patient and helpful and we all caught on quickly! We had a blast and have already signed up to do another one on our next vacation! Thank you Tammy!!
Cool tour with the family

Really cool tour to visit and learn about Chicago history and places. Jeremy did a really good explanation at the different stops to explain and answer question about the places.
The best one!!
Shendi_R, Apr 2022
Muhammad is wonderful!! He takes time to get to know us and makes the whole trip very pleasant. He also makes sure that the boat ride is the best one too. Even my usually anxious daughter starts talking! ☺️. Even better, we’re the only ones in the whole trip.
Super Fun!

Fred was the best! He kept us entertained and had great facts about the city. I would definitely take this tour on your first day in town! Helps you decide what to explore later! Thx Fred!
Funniest way to see Chicago
Claudia_B, Sep 2021
It was the funniest way to see Chicago. The Segway girl, named Tammy, is the best. Ride a Segway is very easy, even for child’s.
Great experience
Derek_B, Aug 2021
Cary was an awesome tour guide. Lots of knowledge and fun, we received excellent Segway training and no one had any problems from a 12 year old girl to a 65 year old man. Beautiful sights and lots of great views.

Our tour guide, Annie, was awesome. We went with our two teenagers and they enjoyed it too. We covered so much area in a short time and got to see a lot. I would do this again!
Perfect start to our vacation

The Segways were easy to use, and fun to ride on. We had more fun that we expected on this tour. The info that was presented along the way was interesting and its a good way to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. We were also late to the training, but they were very accommodating and nice about it. We're also locals, and still enjoyed it just as much as the tourists.

It was the best time ever. Even thought the weather was not the best Rusty was fun, informative and sensitive to a few of us who at the beginning were a bit hesitant. He is a great teacher and someone I would tell friends to ask for if they were planning to do this in the city.

Mike O, Jun 2015
Totally loved Rusty, our tour guide. He knew his stuff and made it hilarious. The only down fall I would say is we needed more breaks. The lady in the office said they stop by bathrooms and gift shops so people can get off, walk, drink, shop, and use restroom. We did stop, but no where at a restroom or a place to get food and drink. We could have used that. By the end, a few of us were hurting for the bathroom.
