Took the tour with our guide Katie and had a great afternoon! Katie was patient and thorough as she trained us (our fist time on a segway). She was very personable, informative and responsible as she led the tour. Tasting all the cheesesteaks was so much fun too! Great experience, would certainly recommend it.

Excellent tour for 4 seniors. Cheesesteak samples were yummy and not filling. Guide BARRY was knowledgeable and pleasant. The stops were evenly spread apart so as not to be standing on the Segway too long. Would gladly take my grandsons on this tour as soon as they reach at least 100 pounds. Fun, Fun, activity! :

How cool was this? Way cool--motoring around Philly on Segway scooters and cutting the long lines at five--count 'em five--separate, iconic cheesesteak eateries to sample the exquisiteness embodied in the Philly Cheesteak. :- Barry was a great tour guide, and made sure everyone stayed safe on their Segways as we toured downtown Philadelphia from Chinatown to the Italian Market, from Penn Landing to Society Hill. Just enough culture and trivia to satisfy our brains, but basically this was a cheesesteak crawl on scooters! And even novices can become highly proficient on a Segway in about 10 minutes--a very natural vehicle to maneuver. Top marks and a great afternoon overall. P.S. Get the Trip Advisor coupon from signing up for a new city to save 10 off.
