Philadelphia: Segway Adventure Tour

Then, traveling in groups of up to 6 people, head down to Penn's Landing for views across to New Jersey and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Glide through the Historic District, passing Elfreth's Alley and the Betsy Ross House. 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.

Go to Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was first debated. Pass Christ Church to see the birthplace of the American Episcopal Church, and Penn's Landing, where William Penn docked in 1682.

Adam was amazing his knowledge of the history of the area really made our trip enjoyable. Our 17 year old son is a history buff and he and Adam had this great conversation. So much better than just having to read and listen too the standard recording. History really came alive!

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.
