Glide around on our Chicago Evening Segway Tour.

The Chicago Evening Segway Glide is the perfect tour to see the city as the sun begins to set. Covering the same route as our expanded three-hour Segway tour of Chicago, this tour is great for the traveler or local that wants to try riding a Segway, but is constrained by a tight schedule. Our Evening Glide will focus more on the experience of riding Segways through our beautiful parks as the evening approaches and less on the fun facts of our hometown. Tour breaks will be shortened to accommodate the two-hour time limit, so guests looking for a more leisurely experience should strongly consider our three-hour Segway tour of Chicago.

Chicago Evening Segway Tour Reviews

CHICAGO EVENING SEGWAY TOUR is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to see Grant Park! My wife and I, life-long Chicagoans, decided to experience our beloved Windy City in a different manner, so we booked an evening tour through Grant Park with City Segway Tours. Our guide, Martin, was not only very knowledgable but also very personable and funny. He was very patient while teaching our group how to ride the segways, and he was also very open to questions and thorough with his answers. My wife and I can't wait to bring our kids on a tour. Awesome experience all the way around. We are encouraging all our co-workers to give City Segway Tours a whirl.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Decent tour but leader lacked good judgement In general the tour itself was fine and our kids had a good time. However, our tour guide lacked good judgment and led us into situations we were unprepared for. We had to maneuver down a steep hill filled with concertgoers and bicycle cabs. He had not provided any insight regarding how to get through a situation like this. He was far in front with our daughters while my husband and I were further behind. The passageway became completely blocked and in the process of trying to dismount the Segway, My foot became stuck and I fell hitting my elbow and severely twisting my ankle. When he finally returned, he had some insensitive remarks and insisted I continue. My ankle and elbow are black & blue and swollen. I see why they insist on a legal disclaimer being signed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected! I think my expectations were off because I didn't realize Greta (our tour guide) was going to be so helpful. I had no idea how to use a Segway but after about 5 min, like she said, I felt like a pro! While we didn't cover a large swath of Downtown, we stayed in an are comfortable for me, my husband and my 55yo mother. I'd definitively do this tour and any others she offered!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to see Chicago landmarks My husband and I took our 14 yr old nephew on the 6pm Segway tour and it was the highlight of the weekend! Our guide, Jack, was very knowledgeable about the city, art and architecture. He also did a great job training us in how to ride the Segway. It was easy, fun and we got to see a lot of the city in two hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Segway can get wet My segway tour started out wet. Then after ten minutes of training to use we made it ten minutes riding them before mother nature shut us down . The best ten minutes ride I had other than the night time helicopter ride over the Chicago skyscrapers. The family is now wanting to get our own segway to ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to see the city! My husband and I chose to do this on our vacation as an anniversary gift to ourselves. We had the best time even in the rain. Our tour guide, Gretta, did an amazing job showing us the city including taking pictures of us and informing us along the way of some of Chicago's history!
Date published: 2016-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I went on the two hour tour with Chris as our tour guide. What an awesome time. Chris was full of all kinds of history information and let the group decide what we wanted to talk about and take pictures where ever the group wanted to stop.
Date published: 2016-09-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect way to spend an evening Our guide was knowledgeable about Chicago, and responsive to the needs of our group (letting the teens have some time to exercise their new-found skills in an unpopulated part of the park). It was our favorite part of our trip.
