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 tour from Segway Experience of Chicago (a $70 value).
As Chicago's only Segway-authorized touring company, Segway Experience of Chicago pilots passengers along a historically rich jaunt through the city of broad shoulders. Departing from Grant Park, the two-hour Park Glide tour carves through the city's iconic parks, stopping for photo ops in front of Millennium Park's iconic Pritzker Pavilion, Cloud Gate (commonly known as "The Bean"), and scenic spots on the Museum Campus. Led by trained and experienced Segway pied pipers, Park Glide tours of 8 gliders or less depart at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 5 p.m. every day. The zero-emission Segway gliders move at more than twice the speed of 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.
They try to go to the extra mile to make you feel comfortable, help you take pictures, and also to explain to you the history of Chicago.Michelle M., Yelp, 5/28/11
I was beyond impressed with the length and variety of the tour, and even as a native Chicagoan, we learned a lot.Suzanne S., Yelp, 5/23/11
