Great fun!
LauraM_Toronto, Oct 2019
I loved this! The tour centered mainly around what you see from the lakefront, but the ride was beautiful as a result.
Chicago Grant Park Segway Tour
richardtX9820PR, Oct 2019
Fun, great way to cover a lot of ground. Staff was friendly and helpful. A little more time at a couple of the spots would have been nice. All in all a good time and worth the money. Segways are very easy to ride and no one should be scared to try it.
Different viewpoint
Linda_E, Sep 2019
Jack was a great guide. Safety first, then fun and facts/ info. On the segway, it's a different view of Chicago than you can get from a car. Plus it's fun - and I'm 66. Highly recommend the tour and if you can go in a "slower" day, even better. 3 in our tour.
So much fun!
Jim_T, Jul 2019
Our first Segway tour and definitely would recommend. Isabelle was a great tour guide - thoroughly explained how to safely use the Segway and made sure we were all comfortable before the tour began. She also knew her information about the various places we saw. Our family of 5 has now discovered our favorite way to see new cities.
Great first trip for my son

Maribel R, Jun 2018
Absolute MUST DO! I suggested to small group of us traveling together and they all thanked me for suggesting it. You get to cover alot in short period of time. Would not have been able to cover so much by walking. I wanted to visit The Bean but segways are not allowed in Millenium park.

Judith A, Apr 2018
Highly recommend! Jake and Jack hooked us up and we were on our way---Jake gave us an awesome tour and filled us in on Chicago historical facts along the way. Learning to ride Segway was easy, route safe, areas to ride and tour were great. We booked this because they offered small groups and ended up just two---toured at our own pace and covered a lot of ground! Thanks Jake!

Great way to learn about and see downtown Chicago,especially if your visit is short. Covered nearly 8 miles in 2 hours. Jack was an awesome tour guide!

Fayette G, Sep 2017
Tour was very good, but started off very poorly. Accident during training time, first 30 minutes, resulted in injuries to my left hip and knee, that two weeks later still requires the use of a cane when walking or standing. It was the first day of a two week vacation, pretty much screwed the whole two weeks.

Kathleen H, Aug 2017
It was a wonderful experience---I'm 72 years old and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Our Tour Guide Matt was exceptional--great instructor,watched over all of us like we were his ducklings----helpful,polite and absolutely brimming with information and a personality to match. There were four of us together --my daughter,daughter-in-law and my best friend---if they can't do a review too because I paid for our tickets this review needs to be times 4---- would do it again if Matt was our Tour Guide. Highly recommend this tour for almost everyone---you just need pretty good balance and a sense of adventure.

We had to wait out a passing thunderstorm and the other guests bailed but we truly enjoyed the personal tour by Jack, to our family of four. Made the Chicago trip very memorable! Thanks for the extra safety tips and patience rendered to us who all had a great time on their first Segway ride. Awesome staff at City Segway Chicago!

Natalie M, Jul 2017
It was just our group of three with Matt as our tour guide. We were fortunate to have our own personal guide for our two hour session. Safety is important and it was evident. Matt is a lively and animated guide and full of interesting information that we didn't know about and we live in Chicago. Our niece was visiting from Texas and had never been on a Segway, she was nervous but became confident as time passed. Matt set a good pace for us. Highly recommend! Lovely way to see sites along Michigan and to see the Museum campus.

Lindsay B, Jul 2017
Great tour! We think we had Josh as our guide... he's a 6th grade teacher and we did the tour on Thursday July 13. Our guide was very helpful, fun, and knowledgeable about the city. Definitely takes some getting used to, but once you have the hang of it, you wish you could take the segway on to your next destination!
