Since cheetah-shoes don't yet exist, and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, segways remain the best way to tour a city. See the sights in two-wheeled fashion with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a Park Glide Segway tour from Segway Experience of Chicago (a $70 value), located on South Michigan Avenue.

Segway Experience of Chicago's Park Glide Tour offers a smooth two-hour voyage through some of the city's most popular landmarks. After mounting a gently whirring, eco-friendly segway, tour-goers follow their guide's steady trail, riding past prominent sights including Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, and the many skyscrapers that rise around them. The tour also explores the lakefront path, with riders rolling past the southerly sights of Soldier Field, where bears live, and the sprawling museum campus, where fish, mummies, and knowledge live.

Tours run seven days per week and begin at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m. through May, and then at 10 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. afterward. Potential walkway-warriors should arrive 30 minutes prior to the start time. Tours go for two hours but can be shortened to accommodate for inclement weather.

Reviews

Three Yelpers give Segway Experience of Chicago an average of 4.7 stars and two Insider Pages users give it a five-star average:

  • the guide was very knowledgeable about the city and we had a great time. You get the hang of it by the end – Tanya N., Yelp, 5/4/10
  • At first you will be tentative [sic], but after 20-30 minutes, you will be asking the instructor to ride using the faster setting. – Sue H., Insider Pages

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.
