Admire Independence Hall en route to Society Hill, where you can marvel at the stately homes while catching the aroma of fresh coffee at quaint cafés. Pass over Avenue of the Arts to Rittenhouse Square, before winding through the Fitler Square neighborhood to Schuylkill River. The scenery changes here, as you work your way along the paths of the Schuylkill Banks, joined by runners and bikers en route to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Admire the statue of Rocky Balboa at the bottom of the famous steps he ran up in the 1976 blockbuster movie, before moving on to Benjamin Franklin Parkway to see Rodin’s “Thinker” statue in the outdoor sculpture garden.

The experience is really wonderful. I haven’t tried Segway before. The guide is very patient and careful. I learnt the Segway very fast. It is easy. I chose the 1 hour route because the other is closed during winter.We went throughout the old city and see a lot of interesting places like a glass art wall and local market. It is especially good for solo travelers because the guide will take the picture for you. The route is difficult to figure out by yourself so it really worths it. The tour went fast so it may not be a good choice if you want to stop for a while to look into each spots. And It’s so cold in December. It may be better to go in spring and autumn for the 2 hour route.

Loved our tour guide! She brought great historical perspectives and made the entire tour fun and engaging. It’s a great way to see a part of what Philadelphia has to offer.

D, took care of us through the city on our Segways. Cool guy, very friendly funny, and took great pics! Will be back for a Segway food tour next time!

Segways are just plain fun! We enjoyed our guide CiCi who was friendly and informative as well as constantly keeping us safe.

My brother and my 14 year old nephew came over for a visit and this was a super cool way to show them Philidelphia.
