Cruise to Grant Park to see Buckingham Fountain and peer up at the Lincoln statue at Lincoln Park. Glide through the 57-acre (23-hectare) Museum Campus that borders Lake Michigan, watch the last of the sun’s rays shimmering on the lake from Shedd Aquarium, and continue along Lakeshore Drive to glimpse the lit-up landmark of Navy Pier.

Always a great experience! Perhaps a bit to much of time used by the initial training, perhaps could use more initial trainers so the tour is more enjoyable from the beginning.

My teen daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. We'd not segwayed at night before, and was great fun to see the city all aglow. Great tour guide his other gig is as a standup comedian and much historical detail was provided, as well as answers to our many questions. Highly recommend.

The night tour was fantastic! My only criticism is that it's more of an evening tour than a night tour, but that didn't detract much from the experience. The Segways are very intuitive, and the company goes to great lengths to make sure you feel comfortable before you're set free. This includes a brief training video and some one-on-one time in the nearby park, followed by a little time to practice on your own before the tour starts. We had Josh as our guide. He was funny, informative, and very kind. The tour itself goes to a wide variety of places, including Grant Park, The Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, The Field Museum, and the Buckingham Fountain. The tour itself last about 2 hours with the training time taking about 20-30 minutes prior to the trip. Overall it was an incredible experience, and we will definitely be taking another tour someday!

This was the BEST thing our group did while in Chicago. It only took us 10 minutes to acclimate to the Segway's. Chis was an amazing guide and he stopped just enough to give us insights about some of the key locations and he kept our tour fun and interactive. We will definitely do this again and again...
