Philly Mural Segway Tour - AWESOME!!

We love Segway and the Mural Segway was the last activity of our trip. Barry was our guide and what a lovely guy, informative, helpful, taking pictures, sharing information, and we thoroughly enjoyed the event. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We will most certainly recommend this event and Barry, keep on doing what you do, as you are doing a good job.

This was my first ever Segway experience. As a 65-year-old who is a little afraid of speed, I was quite anxious. I did fine. I really enjoyed the murals. My favorite was the tidal wave on a high school - beautiful! Deshon was amazing! He was very supportive and informative.
