Full description
Take a Segway tour of Philadelphia to see the main city sights and get an informative commentary on the history of the city at the forefront of the American Revolution and Declaration of Independence. Your guide will give you a 30-minute training session before you set off on the self-balancing vehicles. Then, traveling in groups of up to 6 people, head down to Penn's Landing for views across to New Jersey and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Glide through the Historic District, passing Elfreth's Alley and the Betsy Ross House. Admire Independence Hall en route to Society Hill, where you can marvel at the stately homes while catching the aroma of fresh coffee at quaint cafés. Pass over Avenue of the Arts to Rittenhouse Square, before winding through the Fitler Square neighborhood to Schuylkill River. The scenery changes here, as you work your way along the paths of the Schuylkill Banks, joined by runners and bikers en route to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Admire the statue of Rocky Balboa at the bottom of the famous steps he ran up in the 1976 blockbuster movie, before moving on to Benjamin Franklin Parkway to see Rodin’s “Thinker” statue in the outdoor sculpture garden. A cruise of some of the back streets will lead you to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, from where you can loop through Chinatown and the end of your tour.

Was so FUN! Mike was a great guide. I felt safe even in the Philly traffic because of Mike’s knowledge of the route and traffic system. My 18 ur son thought two hours was longer than he would have liked but I disagree. He wants to do the 1 hour Segway someday soon though.

The Segway tour was fun! Our guide, Mike, gave us intruction about how to use a Segway and we all practiced before heading out. Mike was very attentive to making sure all of the participants stayed safe while having a fun ride! He narrated the tour expertly. We covered quite a bit of the city in an hour.

We had the greatest time on the Segway tour ! Were from philly but it was great seeing it a different way other than in a car or walking . Sophia our guide was just adorable ! Being from philly she put her own spin on things as well as telling the history and pointing out tourist attractions . I’m asking for gift certificates for my birthday and other holidays for another Segway tour!!!
