    What a blast! I was nervous at first but after being on the segway for five minutes I was very comfortable and confident. Our tour guide Fred made the tour so much fun for all of us and I even learned a few things about the history of Chicago I never knew! Already saving up for another tour in the fall! Thanks again Fred!

    Great fun!!!

    Shawn was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and also very entertaining. We went to spots I would have never found on my own. Great view of the city. I've never ridden a segway before and was amazed how easy it was to pick up. I definitely will do this again. Thanks Shawn!

    Evening tour- Amazing

    We got the best of both - seeing Chicago in day light and in the evening. My husband & I were the only 2 on this tour - we were very lucky. We learned of Chicago’s history and georgraphy. Our guide A.J. was very accommodating as well as extremely knowledgeable and encouraged questions. The views throughout were stunning and we got some great photos. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough.
