Segways have proven to be a safe and popular way to explore a city’s skyline, edging out catapult tours and window-washing temp gigs. Let your gaze do the sky scraping with this Groupon.
$69 for a Two- to Three-Hour Chicago Segways at Sunset Tour for Two (Up to $138 Value)
Bike and Roll Chicago outfits sightseers with motorized segways so they can traverse the paved surfaces of the city. Chicago Segways at Sunset groups set sail from Millennium Park as dusk emerges, rolling through Grant Park as the gyroscopically engineered vehicles carry tourists to the lakefront for full views of the skyline and fishermen casting out their lines for trout, perch, and amphibious Chicago-style hot dogs. Rolling south along the lake, pairs soak in unparalleled views of Soldier Field, Shedd Aquarium, and the Field Museum, all softly illuminated by the sun’s slow descent behind the legendary Windy City skyline. Bike and Roll Chicago strongly recommends that riders wear closed-toe athletic shoes to ensure comfort and protect them from sentient segways that are jealous of toes. Tours depart at 7 p.m.
Bike and Roll Chicago
With a fleet of futuristic Segways and classic beach-cruiser bicycles, Bike and Roll Chicago outfits travelers with wheeled transportation to explore the city's paved surfaces. Tour guides lead groups through Millennium Park and along the lakefront to catch the skyline when illuminated by sunrises or backlit by one of Chicago's many moons. Misty Lake Michigan breezes ruffle riders' hair peeking through helmets as they pass by sailboats swaying lazily in the harbors and fishermen casting lines for trout and perch. Bike and Roll Chicago designs routes around classic architectural landmarks such as the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum as well as popular neighborhoods home to a number of restaurants and art festivals.
