Full description
Enjoy tastes of 5 different Philly cheesesteaks as you tour South Philly by Segway, stopping at the best cheesesteak establishments on your route.

Meet your entertaining guide and begin your tour with a 30-minute orientation session. Once you feel comfortable riding your self-balancing electric Segway, you’ll weave through the streets of South Philly on a 5-mile loop. Glide along the neighborhood’s streets, passing the Italian Market, South Street, and Society Hill – all without breaking a sweat.

As you enjoy these scrumptious tastings of the sandwich that made the city famous, you’ll understand why there’s nothing quite like a crusty roll filled with thinly sliced sautéed beef and melted cheese. You’ll sample 5 different cheesesteaks and decide which is your favorite. Gobble up a quarter of a sandwich at each vendor, from your classic hole-in-the-wall restaurant to the take-out window. Enjoy the flavors and textures of ribeye beef and melted cheese, dripping with toppings such as sautéed mushrooms, ketchup, and hot or sweet peppers. Your guide will make sure you order the traditional Philly cheesesteak, known locally as a Whiz Wit, topped with processed cheese spread and fried onions!

This small-group Segway tour is limited to 8 people, ensuring personalized attention from your guide.

This was the most awesome tour we’ve ever taken. Owen did an outstanding job of showing us the city & teaching us to drive the segway. We always felt safe on the segways while driving the streets of Philly with him. It was so much fun to sample cheesesteaks back to back.

Great tour!

The Philly Cheesesteak tour was really good, it helps you get to 5 of the best cheesesteak places in the city and get a quick view of the city on a segway. Although it doesn't give you a very decent tour of the city, the tour guides do provide some really nice snipets of the city's history. What you get is the adventure and the really good cheesesteaks, although after the 3rd one, you'd probably not be able to tell the differences anymore. Word of advice: don't schedule dinner afterwards anymore, maybe just hit the bar or have some dessert.
