I had the most wonderful Segway tour experience on a recent trip to Chicago. Steve's Segway Tours is centrally located just outside Millennium Park. The entire staff at Steve's were helpful, informative and most importantly fun! Freddy guided us through many of the attractions providing unusual and interesting facts about Chicago with enthusiasm and deep appreciation for his home town. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide!

Don't forget your camera and comfortable shoes because you'll be standing for hours on the Segway, and save room to enjoy a traditional Chicago dog during the tour.

What a great day out! I was a little apprehensive at first about riding a segway but you pick it up in just a few minutes. The staff were so friendly and informative and Freddy our guide was a great laugh. He also knew lots of amusing and interesting facts about Chicago.You really cover so much in 3 hours on a segway and you don't want to get off it at the end! I would recommend this to anyone that wants to learn about the city whilst having fun at the same time. We saw other Segway companies touring but the groups were massive (some as large as 17 people!). Steve's Segway tours never has groups larger than 9 which makes it more intimate. They also take you to do fun things that the other companies don't but I can't say what because that would ruin the surprise! Let's just say it was hilarious!

My fiancee and I wanted to do something fun and nontraditional on our wedding day. We had a small ceremony at Millennium Park in the morning and then we headed over to Steve's Segway. We walked into the office, Chris in his tux and me in my wedding dress and they all squealed with delight to find out we got married that morning! Our guide was Freddy, he was very concerned that our helmets matched so that we could get some killer pictures from our adventure with him. He took my camera and everywhere we went, he had us pose for pictures, made us laugh and gave us a little history about the places we were visiting. I can't say enough about what an incredible experience it was and how professional and fun Freddy was throughout the adventure! I grew up around Chicago, and I had never seen it via Segway, it gave me a newer and zoomier perspective of my favorite city on earth. Thank you Steve's Segway!

This was my second time to enjoy Steve's Segway Tours. First time was in July 2010, then in Sept 2011. Both had their advantages. The weather was better on the first, the lack of a crowd on the second was fantastic. Freddy was our tour guide and because our group was small, we got to adapt the tour to our interests and to avoid the Bears' game crowd. He was flexible, accommodating, incredibly knowledgeable, and fun to ride with. So, not only do you get to see Chicago and learn a lot, but you get to have a blast doing it. Segways are too much fun. I'll do it again in a beat.
