From arriving in our store to leaving with your memories, Philly By Segway will provide you with a great experience. Before you leave for your tour, our trained guides will make you feel comfortable and safe on the Segway. You'll learn the operation quickly, but not too quickly!
After about 30 minutes of check-in and training, you will leave with your group of up to 7 travelers along your Philly Cheesesteak adventure!
Start off gliding through Old City, learning about the historical center of Philadelphia and hear stories about revolutionary times, as well as an introduction to one of Philly's most famous inventions: The Cheesesteak. You'll pass through Chinatown, marveling at the Friendship Gate and much more in this vibrant neighborhood. Then you'll take in the heart of Philadelphia's Center City: galleries, shops, theatres, hotels, and more. Take a quick pass by Jefferson Hospital - one of the first hospitals in the United States. And then head south. After a quick stop and the enchanting Magic Gardens, head on to your first cheesesteak stop - the world famous corner that's home to Pat's and Geno's.
Next head north through the historic Italian Market and back onto South Street. Stopping again for another bite and hearing about how this area became the "alternative" section of the original city. You'll then head back out, going north into the heart of Society Hill. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Society Hill boasts beautiful, classic homes. Once you come through Society Hill, you'll stop for a final cheesesteak at one of several options along Market Street, before taking in other sights of Old City and heading back to our space.
For safety reasons, we ask you to leave your phones and cameras back at the store, but your guide will take great pictures and upload them to the web (password protected) for you as memories at the end of the tour.
We make safety a high priority on your adventure, and we know you'll return with a much greater appreciate of the City (and our famous sandwich) by the end of your exciting Philadelphia Segway tour.
