Glide around on our Chicago Two Hour Segway Tour.

This two-hour glide covers the same route as our expanded three-hour Segway tours of Chicago, but focuses more on the experience of riding Segways through our beautiful city parks and less about the history of Chicago. Rest assured you will still learn plenty of quirky facts about our hometown! With a slightly shorter duration, this tour is perfect for the locals or travelers that way to their hand at riding a Segway and see some of the major sites in Chicago, but may be constrained by a tighter schedule. Tour breaks will be shortened to accommodate the two-hour time limit, so guests looking for a more leisurely experience (or guests concerned about having more time to step off the machines to rest their feet, etc.) should strongly consider our three-hour Segway tour option.

We will practice on the Segways until everyone feels comfortable.

Though parking is available, we always encourage our guests to use the METRO to avoid street closures, heavy traffic and difficulty finding parking.

Chicago Segway Two Hour Tour Reviews

CHICAGO TWO HOUR SEGWAY TOUR is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time! To be honest my 15 and 18 year old boys were a bit skeptical that they would enjoy this but they LOVED IT. The weather didn't cooperate in the beginning but they still got the full tour experience. The guide was awesome! Being a teacher he was able to relate to them in a way they appreciated. He shared the history of the area and provided them with some great insights to the opportunities in the museums and planetarium. The only negative is the boys now think they should always travel with a segway as they are easy to use and make it fun. We will look for City Segway as we travel! Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to see the Chicago attractions! My family was in Chicago for a few days. The City Segway Tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We started out with the tour. It was a great intro to the city attractions and was so much fun! Our teen-age boys loved riding the Segways and my husband and I did too. Clark, our guide, was friendly and did an excellent job teaching us to operate them. Everyone in our group picked it up quickly with his help. Clark also did a nice job showing us the sights and explaining some of the city's history. I recommend this to everyone. We will do it again in the future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So much fun Jake was our guide and he was great! Riding the segways was the most fun of the excursion. We got a little history but wish that aspect would have more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome adventure After checking out different Chicago Segway companies I selected City Segway Tours for both location and time slots available on our selected day in mid-November. We arrived to find we were the only participants making the experience therefore a private experience. After viewing the video we went outside for our hands on training with Tammie. She was wonderful, helpful and patient. During the tour she encouraged us to have fun with the Segway. Because the people on the sidewalks were at a minimum we were able to move about freely at a manageable speed. We were able to see all the beautiful sites mentioned on line with a nice history background of the great city of Chicago from our tour guide. We look forward to our next Segway experience with City Segway Tours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great anniversary fun! Greta was a fun and informative guide. My husband and I had a great time and we're glad that we chose to celebrate our anniversary touring Chicago with your company. We only wish that we could have stopped more places. Maybe we'll choose a more extensive tour in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adventure This was our first time on a Segway, and we loved it. Jake was our guide, and he was patient, knowledgeable of the history of Chicago, and did an exceptional job. Would highly recommend this to everyone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience! Went on an evening Segway tour for my mom's birthday. First time any of us had ridden a Segway and it was very easy to get the hang of, our tour guide, Chris, was very helpful in showing us how to ride. He did a good job of giving us the kind of tour that our group wanted (more riding time and less facts). But at the same time he was very informed and eager to share. Overall very positive experience and would recommend to anyone--great for Chicago visitors and locals!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fun - and learned a lot! Matt was a great guide, good natured with a sense of ha-ha and was with an impressive amount of history to teach us super cool and interesting facts about Chicago and it's history. TIP: even though it might be a scorcher day the breeze while you ride offsets the heat which was a pleasant surprise (obviously protect yourself from the sun though). It happened that our friends were in Chicago at the same time so they went the next day and loved it as well. Great job!
