    This is a must do tour, I would recommend doing it or as the very first activity after arriving to this beautiful city, or as a farewell tour to say goodbye to the city. We did the 6:00PM tour and it was great, you get to enjoy the city at dusk and early evening and how it lights up. Our tour guide, Jeremy, was great and funny and full of fun facts. Riding the segways was fun and they are quite safe, Jeremy made sure we were all taken care and looked after us. In short words. GREAT EXPERIENCE AND FANTASTIC TOUR TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF CHICAGO

    The whole experience was fantastic! My son, husband and I were a little nervous about riding the Segway, but the training on riding was great, with a focus on safety. We rode for two hours and had so much fun! The tour was great, the information was interesting and overall we had a blast. Matt did a great job! This activity was kid approved! My 12 year old son, said it was the most fun he had on our weekend trip to Chicago! Thank you!!

    The Segway tour was the perfect thing to do having just gotten to Chicago. We got a lay of the land and was able to see a lot of sights that helped us explore more later on the in the trip. Hannah was an awesome tour guide with great stories and fun facts. The Segway was very intuitive and easy to ride. We would highly recommend doing this!
