A great way to see some of the highlights of Chicago

Chicago was the first stop on our US tour of the West Coast. We used to live here many years ago and so fancied breaking up our journey with a few days here. Our Segway tour was a... read more

Booked the trip in advance and paid deposit for 2:30 trip for 4 people. They told me on the phone if the weather is bad and they cancel, I would get a refund. They also told me that they would not ride in the rain because it was not safe. They called me at 10 am to ask me to... More

The tour guide was nice, but not very informative, he did not say much about Chicago just a few interesting facts. The most disappointing part is that the tour is advertised to last 2 1/5 hours but the actual riding takes about 1 hour. 45 minutes went into preparation and training (which is good) but instead of returning at 2...

First time for both me and niece. It was colder than we anticipated and worker gave my niece his own personal jacket. They made sure we were trained well too. Joe did a great job as our guide. Would highly recommend this Segway tour!

Stay away, and go somewhere else... When we showed up for our tour, they insisted on us paying cash even though the site clearly states they take credit cards. The whole transaction was shady. They didn't give us proper credit for the online reservation deposit we paid either. But at that point, we were already there and kids were excited,... More

Be smarter than me and do your research, people! The only thing I get credit for is being the only person in my group to actually read the liability waiver form you must sign before participating. Everyone else seemed to be in a contest to see who could sign everything the fastest. KNOW THIS GOING IN, you are accepting full... More

Sadly the "family run" company is not straight with you compared with their website. There are too many additional costs. There is a processing fee on the website (their website), you get charged tax on the website and then they try and charge you tax again on the deposit you paid on the website when you arrive. You are encouraged... More

We embarked on a Chi Segway tour on Thursday Sept 1st. The weather wasn't great on and off drizzle. We started late training bc one party wasn't on time. Then we left for tour late. Then one of the segways wreaked while traversing a wet "electric cord non trip mat" near Soldier field. The 15 year old kid and Segway... More

I really do not think this tour worths $60, if you want to ride a segway for 1.5 hrs, it is fine, but if you want to get information about the city, do not pay. They have cancelled our tour without any notification and they were not willing to refund us!! although they offer us voucher to use later on.

Ok, tour gets cancelled due to weather. I get that, but to keep my money is not right. They shouldn't benefit because of Mother Nature, refunds should be given! They lose nothing because of weather, your choice to be in a business that requires good weather not mine. To hide behind a contract about no refunds is a joke. I... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
