    Segway Tour

    "The Segway experience is mindboggling yet exhilarating, the tour
    covered a lot more ground than had it been on foot, then there were the
    fireworks from a great spot on the lake with the lit cityscape."

Offered Wednesday and Saturday nights in the summertime, our Summer Fireworks Tour takes the route of our Evening Segway Tour and finishes it with a colorful bang. Leaving a little later, this tour will stay out until the fireworks are done and then make the short trip back to the office to allow you to enjoy the other night life Chicago has to offer. When the crowds and the heat subside, you will have the opportunity to experience a relaxing glide through the parks and the Museum Campus, ending with a lakefront ride with a view of the Navy Pier fireworks presentation.

Please note that this tour has a more limited schedule than our other options. The Chicago Fireworks Segway Tour will be available Wednesdays at 7:30pm and Saturdays at 8:30pm only.

Chicago Fireworks Segway Tour Reviews

CHICAGO FIREWORKS SEGWAY TOUR is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun fun fun Tour guide Jake is very professional and caring. The tour was informative, not boring It qould be nice if we can make more stops to stretch our legs. Watching the fireworks from Navy pier at the Buckingham fountain is a bit far and obstructed by trees. Other than that, everything was nice!
