    Was so FUN! Mike was a great guide. I felt safe even in the Philly traffic because of Mike’s knowledge of the route and traffic system. My 18 ur son thought two hours was longer than he would have liked but I disagree. He wants to do the 1 hour Segway someday soon though.

We had the greatest time on the Segway tour ! Were from philly but it was great seeing it a different way other than in a car or walking . Sophia our guide was just adorable ! Being from philly she put her own spin on things as well as telling the history and pointing out tourist attractions . I’m asking for gift certificates for my birthday and other holidays for another Segway tour!!!

The Segway tour was fun! Our guide, Mike, gave us intruction about how to use a Segway and we all practiced before heading out. Mike was very attentive to making sure all of the participants stayed safe while having a fun ride! He narrated the tour expertly. We covered quite a bit of the city in an hour.

Was so FUN! Mike was a great guide. I felt safe even in the Philly traffic because of Mike’s knowledge of the route and traffic system. My 18 ur son thought two hours was longer than he would have liked but I disagree. He wants to do the 1 hour Segway someday soon though.

He was excellent! He remembered all our names. We enjoyed the trip through Philadelphia. I would do it again. And so would my son.
