By far the most fun we've had in a while and we have fun often. Barry got us up and running in no time and was very knowledgeable of Philly. Excellent tour on the bike paths and streets. I would highly recommend this tour for all ages, it's that easy!

We took the 1 hour Adventure of Philadelphia tour. We had a great time on the Segway. Our guide Barry did an excellent job showing and describing all the sites.

What a fabulous experience. Entertaining and educational tour. I was a timid Segway newbie and Barry really spent time to make sure I was comfortable with steering, braking and speed that is necessary on Philly streets. I've lived in this area all my life and I learned so much from his expert knowledge of Philadelphia. I highly recommend this tour.... More

After patiently demonstrating how the segway is used and making sure that we are comfortable on it we began the tour. He went at the perfect... More

If you are even questioning doing this tour STOP and immediately book it. It is worth every penny! Ben was our tour guide and he was absolutely amazing. We booked this tour for my husbands 40th birthday. We both love the movie and it was incredible to be able to see where they filmed Rocky and even parts of Creed.... More

Called looking for a good history tour. They booked us for a 4 hour private tour. Little pricey, but was only going to spend one day in Philly so wanted to make the most of it. They drove us around the city for our 4 hours. Lots of awkward silence, just drove by the big sites and neighborhoods. Felt like... More

My wife and I went on a Segway tour with Mike and had a blast. Riding the Segway was a piece of cake - 10 minute training and we were on our way. We have lived near Philadelphia all of our lives and we were shown places we didn't know about. Looking forward to going back for the cheese steak... More

My husband and I went on a Segway tour with Owen, we had great fun! We were a little nervous to begin with as neither of us had been on a Segway tour but Owen quickly put us at ease. Once out on the tour we got to see the major sites of Philadelphia Owen was full of information and... More

Exploring Philly by segway was an awesome experience. We had a group of 8, 5 adults and 3 kids with ages all across the spectrum. After a brief training session to get your seg-legs, you hit the streets of philly and riding a segway could not be more fun. The pace is perfect and you feel more comfortable with each... More

We had a great time exploring Old City on segways. Mike was a great teacher and made us all feel confident to roll along - even this senior citizen. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the city. After Mike's training I'm going to look for segway tours when I travel.
