Departure Point

7 N Christopher Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA

Tours start from: 7 N. Columbus Blvd., Suite 7b Philadelphia, PA 19106 (next to the Waterfront Cafe & Deli)

Why ride when you can glide? Riding on a Segway isn’t rocket science, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one, especially gliding around a large metropolitan area like downtown Philly. So this tour begins with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weight between 99 and 300lbs (44 and 136kg) to participate.

With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road. If you have opted for the shorter Segway tour around Philadelphia, cruise a loop from the Historic District and Penn’s Landing to the Delaware River and South Street neighborhoods. Check out over 15 attractions, like the historic First Bank of the United States, the 9th Street Italian Market — the oldest and largest outdoor market in the United States — the folk art environs of the Magic Gardens and the various churches attended by William Penn, where the Quaker leader (who fought against religious oppression) practised what he preached.

On the longer Segway tour option, continue along the loop, passing by Elfreth's Alley, America's oldest continuously inhabited residential street, and the Betsy Ross House, believed to be the very site where the the first American Flag was sewn. Glide by Independence Hall, birthplace of the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the magnificent homes of Society Hill.

Continue on to the Avenue of the Arts, Rittenhouse Square and Fitler Square before traveling along the Schuylkill River to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the famous stairs from the movie Rocky. Finally, it’s off to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the Rodin Museum before winding through some of the city’s back streets, en route to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Chinatown, where the tour comes to an end.

Highlight of our Philly visit. Barry's emphasis on safety made me feel more comfortable with riding a Segway. He was extremely knowledgeable about Philly and told interesting and engaging stories about the city. Highly recommended. Would definitely do this tour again the next time we are in Philly!

It was great experience! We have done many Segway tours and this was the first one that gave us headphones and he spoke to us the whole time. Usually we stop somewhere and they talk to us with information and then going from place to place, only the people up front can hear any of the comments along the ride. This was awesome. Got a talking tour for the whole two hours. Super knowledgeable and nice. Really enjoyed the ride. The other thing he did was take pictures of the whole ride. Every site, of the group, of individuals and then gave us all the pictures. We could pick and choose what we wanted. That way I never needed to take any pictures. He did all the work! Highly recommend.

This was our 5th Segway Tour and we really enjoyed it. Sophia was our tour guide. She was easy to follow and understand, in addition to being patient and encouraging to others who were first timers. We would recommend this tour to others. It's a fun and easy way to see the sights that are spread out in the city,
