Segway tours represent another step toward the inevitable fusion of man, machine, and commentary track. Give in to technological destiny with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a two-hour Park Glide segway tour from Segway Experience of Chicago (a $70 value). This deal is valid Monday–Thursday.
Chicago's only segway-authorized touring company, Segway Experience of Chicago, pilots passengers along a historically rich and high-speed jaunt through the city of broad shoulders. Departing from Grant Park, the two-hour tour carves through the city's iconic parks, stopping for photo ops in front of Millennium Park's iconic Pritzker Pavilion and Daley Plaza's aldermanic dunk tank. Led by trained and experienced segway pied pipers, Park Glide tours depart at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 5 p.m. Monday–Thursday. The zero-emission segway gliders zip along at speeds of up to 12.5 miles per hour, nearly four times faster than the average pedestrian.
Segway Experience of Chicago
Standing taller than pedestrians and gliding at a steadier pace than bicyclists, Segway riders experience cities at their own speed from an entirely new perspective. The knowledgeable tour guides dispatched by Segway Experience of Chicago lead groups through the Windy City’s lakefront, strolling by the surrounding fountains and architecture across two-hour tours. More rewarding than riding atop a double-decker bus or clutching the cape of a superhero, Segway tours fill eyes with panoramic views of Chicago's best sights and its elegant skyline.
