  • Great tour, tourguide and fun for whole family, some of them were apprehensive to try it, but after 30 seconds was a pro......highly reccomend!

  • Benjamin was fun, entertainig, informative and made the 2hrs go by very quickly. Lots of tidbits of info you wouldn't normally come across unless you did a tour like this. Highly recommended!

  • The tour was amazing! We went on the first tour of the day on a Sunday and it was just us and the tour guide. We were able to cover a lot of ground. Great fun, love the Segway .

  • I took the tour last week and it was my first time on a Segway. Our tour-guide and instructor was Paul who presented a nice and relaxed trip for a novice such as myself. The tour was informative, the staff was friendly and the experience is one I would recommend to anyone. Just an added advantage was that the tour started early in the morning, giving plenty of time to visit other sites with your new found knowledge of downtown Chicago.

  • Kim was fantastic!! She was patient and very, very helpful in getting everyone used to their segways. Then she offered us a choice of two directions and told us what we would see either way. We all opted for the more architectural tour since that was what we were all hoping to see. She gave terrific information and answered all questions. She offered to take and took pictures of the tour members at various photo opportunity spots. All in all it was a great two hours that just flew by. I highly recommend this tour as you really get to see a good deal of the memorable building of this fun city.

  • Outstanding tour and leader. Kim (?) was friendly, knowledgeable, fun and personable. We had a great time seeing the city and learning to use a Segway.

  • It was great. We loved everything about it. We felt safe and prepared after the video and practice. Our fearless leader was great. He watched us cross streets and kept a close eye on us. Would do it again.

  • It was great! My guide, Dana, was wonderful. She really knew her stuff. She answered my questions, made me feel confident and provided just the right amount of fun. I recommeded the tour to others and I hope they followed up. It was easy, fun and the BEST way to see the sights.
