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.

Chicago Two Hour Segway Tour Reviews

CHICAGO TWO HOUR SEGWAY TOUR is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time! My boyfriend and I scheduled a tour for when my parents were in town and it was a great experience. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. It takes a bit to get the hang of the segway and feel comfortable on it, but once you do it's a great and relaxing way to see the city.

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 3 out of 5 by from Family fun Bought the 2 hr tour for party of 5. Our total group size was 7. The first 55 minutes was taken up with safety video and individual tuition by the one instructor. That was real disappointing. An extra staff member was clearly required to speed the process up for the group. Lots of standing around doing nothing during this time. Tip - tell them you’re nervous and they jump you to the front of the line for tuition actually on the Segway. Once we all travelled together on the segways it was great fun. Tour guide and staff super friendly and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun way to tour the Lskeshore! We had a great time riding our segways through the park and lakeshore. We were able to take some great photos in front of Buckingham Fountain and Soldier Field.

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 Segwaying at 65!!!! It was a little intimidating, but I did it! A 65 year old non driver conquered the city of Chicago on a Segway. What a wonderful experience. Our guide was patient, knowledgeable and humorous. I was completely at ease and was able to enjoy more of the wonderful city of Chicago in a shorter period of time. Kudos to all!!!!!!!!! Aunt Peach

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fun! My friend Dawn and I like to do fun things when she comes to town and this fit the bill. Tammy was a great guide - lots of energy and lots. Of cool knowledge. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to handle the balancing - but it is really pretty easy once you get going. Highly recommend it!
