Cheesesteak Segway Tour In Philadelphia
Enjoy a guided glide on a five-mile loop on this food-focused Philadelphia Segway tour! We stop and sample five different Philly cheesesteaks, at the best places, as you tour South Philly by Segway.
After your Segway training, we start our Philly sightseeing tour off by gliding through Old City, learning about the historical center of Philadelphia and hearing stories about revolutionary times, as well as an introduction to one of Philly’s most famous inventions: The Cheesesteak. Then, we pass through Chinatown, marveling at the Friendship Gate and much more in this vibrant neighborhood. Visit the heart of Philadelphia’s Center City and discover the variety of galleries, shops, theaters, hotels, and more in this iconic neighborhood. Take a quick pass by Jefferson Hospital – one of the first hospitals in the United States – and then head south. After a quick stop at the enchanting Magic Gardens, it’s off to your first cheesesteak stop – the world-famous corner that’s home to Pat’s and Geno’s.
After our sample, we 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. We head back out, going north. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Society Hill boasts beautiful, classic homes and after our tour through it, you 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 meeting location for the tour.
