I took the segway tour around Philadelphia with my father, and it was the perfect way to spend the afternoon together. We actually arrived about 20 minutes late due to an accident and the subsequent traffic, but Rasa was very accommodating. As first-time segway riders,...More

We are difficult to please New Yorkers who have been out on many Segway tours in the past. This was easily one of the best. We took the hour and a half tour as we were fearful the 3 hour trip might be too long....More

We had an incredible experience on our Segway tour through Philly. Our tour guide Mike made the experience both educational, fun and humorous! Even though you think you think you know a city, experiencing it on a Segway shows it in a whole new light!

We enjoyed our 90-min segway tour even more than we expected. It was easy and fun, and our guide, Mike, couldn't have been better. Will be looking into the cheesesteak segway tour next. This is a "must-do".
