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. 

Take back streets that will lead you to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, from where you can loop through Chinatown and the end of your tour.

Our guide, Mike was so knowledgeable about the city - everything from history, movies & even places to eat! He was well spoken & traveled at a pace that seems everyone was comfortable keeping up with him. I believe there is a missed marketing opportunity here because 4 out of our group of 7 riders ended up at the cheesesteak immediately after the tour!! We were ALL SMILES after our tour & have already suggested to many others to see Philly this way!! Thanks for a great day!

The experience is really wonderful. I haven’t tried Segway before. The guide is very patient and careful. I learnt the Segway very fast. It is easy. I chose the 1 hour route because the other is closed during winter.We went throughout the old city and see a lot of interesting places like a glass art wall and local market. It is especially good for solo travelers because the guide will take the picture for you. The route is difficult to figure out by yourself so it really worths it. The tour went fast so it may not be a good choice if you want to stop for a while to look into each spots. And It’s so cold in December. It may be better to go in spring and autumn for the 2 hour route.

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.
