Feet are notoriously hard workers, supporting the body’s weight while restraining floors so they don’t crash into ceilings. Give diligent footworkers a break with today's Groupon: for $42, you get one evening segway tour from Signature Segway Adventures (up to a $79 value). Evening tours leave at 5:30 p.m. every day.
Signature Segway Tours jettisons patrons on a balance-operated jaunt through the Windy City's most celebrated sights on the new balance-based, dual-wheeled segway X2 or i2. Before beginning the 2.5-hour adventure, tour guides give riders a rundown of segway operation, ensuring all patrons feel comfortable with the process of accelerating, stopping, and wheel-polishing sidewalks. Explorers then zip down the lakefront path, listening to guides narrate the historical rise of the Second City through mobile glimpses of locales such as Grant and Millennium Park, Museum Campus, and Soldier Field. The tour lets riders steer their newly acquired seglegs along the strip separating the city from Lake Michigan, enjoying panoramic views and the opportunity to converse with krakens concerning zoning restrictions.
Signature Segway Tours
Gliding through parks and weaving between runners on the lakefront path, segway-riding guides from Signature Segway Adventures keep guests in the know, offering up fun facts about the city and its origins. During tours, they highlight architectural sights, scenic views, and landmarks such as Buckingham Fountain, Navy Pier, and the Shedd Aquarium. Before hopping aboard a self-balancing vehicle, guests take part in an instructional course so they will feel confident and not try to bring their own training wheels from home.

“Segways are very easy to use. The guides were very nice and a lot of fun. The only change I would make would be to make the tour longer and the training shorter. I was told the tour was 2-2.5 hours but it was only 1.5 hours and they spend a good 30 minutes or more telling everyone how to ride but it's not brain surgery. Training should take no more than 5-10 minutes. Overall still a good time and nice staff. ”
