Philadelphia Segway Tour

Philadelphia Segway Tour

Why ride when you can glide? Riding on a Segway isn’t rocket science, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one, especially gliding around a large metropolitan area like downtown Philly. So this tour begins with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weight between 99 and 300lbs (44 and 136kg) to participate.

With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.On the 1-hour Segway tour around Philadelphia, cruise a loop from the Historic District and Penn’s Landing to the Delaware River and South Street neighborhoods. Check out over 15 attractions, like the historic First Bank of the United States, the 9th Street Italian Market — the oldest and largest outdoor market in the United States — the folk art environs of the Magic Gardens and the various churches attended by William Penn, where the Quaker leader (who fought against religious oppression) practised what he preached.

On the 2-hour Segway tour, continue along the loop, passing by Elfreth's Alley, America's oldest continuously inhabited residential street, and the Betsy Ross House, believed to be the very site where the the first American Flag was sewn. Glide by Independence Hall, birthplace of the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the magnificent homes of Society Hill.

Continue on to the Avenue of the Arts, Rittenhouse Square and Fitler Square before traveling along the Schuylkill River to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the famous stairs from the movie Rocky. Finally, it’s off to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the Rodin Museum before winding through some of the city’s back streets, en route to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Chinatown, where the tour comes to an end.

Awesome! It is over 10 miles of narrated touring of Philly. Mike made sure everyone was comfortable on their Segway before we started our tour. We stop and get off once during the 2 hour tour. You have several stops that you are standing on your Segway while Mike explains the sights of the city. Definitely fun and Mike was entertaining as well.

My sister and I like to do different things for one another's birthdays. I booked this for hers. We both enjoyed it a lot and would do it again. Tour guide Ben, was a very good instructor and had a good deal of knowledge on Philadelphia.

Great experience and perfect amount of time - we did the 2 hour tour. Stopped halfway through for a coffee stop at a local place. Ben was passionate about his city and his enthusiasm is contagious. He took pics of our tour and some of the stops which was a great bonus. We had the pictures on email long before we got back to our hotel room.
