Description:

Mobile Entertainment LLC was the first Segway tour operator in the country...

Mobile Entertainment LLC was the first Segway tour operator in the country when Segway launched in 2003. We’ve been evangelizing the fun of the Segway platform as an alternative form of transportation ever since! In spring of 2004 we opened up our retail store, “The Magical History Tour” at our 125 Main Street location in the historic district of downtown Minneapolis. We’ve traveled all over Minnesota and the United States with the largest fleet of Segways maintained in the country at any one location.

This is such an enjoyable experience to see the city of Minneapolis. To learn some of it's history, see areas that a car can not drive and the riverfront is so scenic.

Segway tours are a great and fun way to get around and learn stuff. I am a native MN for all my life and even I learned things about Mpls that I did not learn before. The guides are all very knowledgeable and fun. The Segway itself is easy to master. I would highly recommend this tour,

This tour on Segway is a great way to view the Minneapolis downtown riverfront and learn the history of the city. I have done the Magical History Tour twice - once with my family and another time with a group of 20 German exchange students - and the guides were fantastic both times. Safety procedures are followed and you get... More

Hello! Thank you so much for the positive review! Now that you're an experienced rider, check out our Lowertown tour of St. Paul. We limit that tour to just a handful of riders so it makes for quite the intimate experience. More

I have lived in the Twin Cities all my life, and just across the stone arch bridge for years!! Even so, I learned a lot about the history of the city, even so. And, the Segway ride is great fun!! A great way to see the city and have fun.

We went on the 9:30am tour on Mothers Day- Thomas, Forrest, Noah and Patrick did an AMAZING job! What a neat way to see the city that you live in but never see! My 12, 14, and 17 year old had an amazing time - only complaint from them was that they didn't want to learn anything on a weekend!... More

We had an absolutely fantastic morning tour led by Jim! He gave special attention to make sure that the 5 of us in the group were comfortable with the Segway before we started the trip. I have a sore knee and was a little anxious, but after 2-3 minutes on the Segway, I was loving it! Jim gave us lots... More

What a wonderful and delightful experience in so many ways! My family and office team had so much fun and the Segway tour really was magical. When you drive a Segway, it is as easy as walking, but you feel almost like you are hovering as you roll down the Mississippi River pathways. Our tour guides, Ben, Denny and Ruth... More

We had a great time on this tour. There were four adults and two children. Everyone was quick to get the hang of riding and we were off. The stop at The Mill City Muesum was a nice break. The cookies were delicious. Ben and Chris did a great job guiding the tour. Would reccomend to anyone.
