  1. What is a segway?

    It is a self balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do.  Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway sports high- tech gyroscopes that automatically respond to your body's movements, "sensing" when it should speed up and slow down.

    You stand on a small platform between left and right wheels as you hold onto handlebars at a comfortable waist height.  The Segway handles the balancing for you, so that you're always upright as you glide through any environment.

  2. Can I take pictures during the tour?
    Absolutely, however we recommend that you ask your guide to take your pictures so you can focus on riding and balancing on your Segway.
  3. Are the Segways safe for children?
    Although riding a Segway is relatively easy to do and learn, we do require that all riders be at least 12 years of age. Each of tour begins with a 30-minute orientation session to practice on the Segways until everyone feels comfortable.
  4. Do we go inside the Museums and Monuments?
    You will not enter the museums and monuments since the Segways are so much fun! They will give you a great orientation and you'll know exactly where you want to go after the tour.

"On Aug 22 my wife and I rode the segways for the first time. Our guide was Kyle, which was a great instructor by giving us a lesson on how to ride a Segway. When our tour started around Chicago he was a very knowledgeable guide about the history of Chicago. We had a wonderful time. Thanks for the experience. Doug&Becky Dowley"
