This was a great activity. Vincent was an awesome guide and did a great job of instructing us on how to operate a segway. However.... I have to say I was extremely disappointed in the facility where we checked in. There were no toilets and it seemed dirty and unwelcoming. Both of us needed to use the restroom before setting out and were pretty upset that the staff person there (NOT our guide, he was fantastic), was not very helpful. He actually told me that there was no toilet paper and that he wasn't allowed to let customers use the bathroom on site. He said that we could use a toilet in a hotel half a block away, but gave super-vague instructions. It was all odd. I must say though, when Vincent arrived to lead our tour the whole experience turned around. Again, he was really nice, helpful and informative.

My husband and I went for the first time to celebrate our anniversary, and I was AWESOME! All thanks to Vincent, our amazing trainer and guide. He was very knowledgeable about the Segways and Downtown area. He made us comfortable, was patient, and even took photos for us, which all made for an enjoyable experience. Riding the Segways was a pure blast!! So much fun, and I look forward to doing it all again.

Segway is the way to go to see the Lakefront and Museums Area

Had a nice friendly guide who made sure everyone felt safe riding the Segways before we left. Got to travel a good distance on the Segways and discovered a lot of the South shoreline - Grant Park, the Field, THE Shedd, Soldier Field and of course the beautiful Buckingham Fountain. Great way to see a lot in a fun way without getting exhausted.
